  • High carb primal?

    Neither salt nor butter have helped me regain my libido, what means that apparently I did something good when I was eating a typical "mediterranean" diet because my hormones seemed to work better.

    I don't think this is a problem of micronutrients but rather of macronutrients, in particular the carbs. My logic is simple, as long as all the carbs come from fruit and honey... I won't be eating grains nor legumes... I'll be somehow able to keep the benefits of primal while enjoying a better hormonal balance.


    Somewhere there's a flaw either with my logic or Mark's, anyway I'm going to try this just to see what happens, not having any libido seems way more dangerous than potentially gaining some pounds, and it's only an experiment anyway.


    P.S: Honey is delicious! Wish I could eat it with eggs and butter!

      How old are you?
      You say you are a highschool student, could be very young or not.
      Anyway, young male or older with no libido is very unhealthy IMO.
      Higher carb= great libido for me (but I'm female...).
      And eating more carbs does not mean you will gain weight.
      Let us know how you experiment goes!
      Paleo since April 2013 for health reasons.

          I'm 16 (almost), so yes, pretty young and still no libido, comfortable but extremely uncanny, well, at least now I don't have to pretend I'm not looking at the girls because I'm really not looking at them!

            What the fuck are you doing on a low carb diet?? This baffles me that teenagers would think dieting is cool or something. Est your face off and lift heavy things.

                  Ok, legitimate.

                  Have you had it all your life?

                  Obviously you need to add carbs back in. Dod all thise diet changes have a positive effect on your IBS? Can you handle fruit and fruit juice? Rice?

                    Yeah, eat high carb. Also more animal fats. As many as possible. Boost your testosterone and your energy and your sex drive will be normal again.

                      It started when I was 10-12 or so...

                      My IBS is now completely gone, that's why I'm never going to eat anything with complex carbs or lactose. As I've said I can generally handle (almost) any amount of fruit and honey, but rice is definitely a no.

                        Carbs baby carbs!

                        Do not allow yourself to become wrapped up in a food 'lifestyle'. That is ego, and you are not that.

                            In other words..eat some carbs!! Can you eat sweet potatoes and regular potatoes with IBS?

                              I'd say eat whatever you got to to put some lead back in the pencil. If I had that problem and thought it would help I'd slam twinkies and main line some hot fudge. I do think you must have some deeper issues though. I mean, lets just say even a 3 day fast doesn't slow me down and I'm twice your age. But I might just be weird... fasting makes me randy. So yeah, eat whatever you got to in order to feel procreative again though.

                              Honey really shouldnt mess too much with your IBS (its part of the GAPS diet). So eat a ton of that if you want. Its all sugar in the end anyhow, so if you wanna up your carbs and cant go the starch route I'd make honey and molasses the order.

                              Just reread and see you like honey, eggs and butter..... SO PUT EM TOGEATHER! Egg pancakes (2 eggs and 1 bannana mashed, stirred, and fried in coconut oil or butter) topped with a bunch of honey is my six year olds favorite breakfast. Probably work for you too.
