    I have heard that alcohol puts your muscles in a catabolic state so i have chosen to eliminate alcohol from my diet.....although a paleo margarita sounds dangerously good!!
    He had a whole thread dedicated to how great diet soda is. Pick your information sources carefully around here.

      I use my own judgement and if something sounded crazy I would research it!!
      What he is telling me about increasing my carbs seems worth a try!!
      It seems that you two must have history.

        It may very well be worth a try. That is up to you.

        I eat a VLC diet which works for my health status. But I don't automatically try to push it on everyone who posts here with whatever health concern. In fact I steer many people away from it.

        Gorbag is a body builder and pushes his ultra low fat/high carb agenda on people with everything from a hangnail to cancer. Plus advocating diet soda and booze

        I know you will make an intelligent decision and one that is right for you. I wish you well in doing that.

          Make it as high carbs as you can safely do due to your condition as a diabetic, primal carbs such as potatoes, sweet potatoes, rice, bananas, a piece of cake or even two(put it on your 20% budget, remember this is one meal only!) Get at least 1000 calories from carbs, even some non-primal carbs! OK, the possible outcome of this experiment, the following can happen; you lose lots of weight, then take a vacation from dieting – or you gain water-weight! In case of the latter the problem is pretty sure related to excess “hidden” fat in your diet and/or wrong measuring of food/calories. If you gain weight overnight, then don’t worry because almost nothing will be fat, it’s just water weight…

            Wrong as usual! Gorbag is NOT a bodybuilder, Paleobird is the bodybuilder - or at least the person that claim that she has competed in bodybuilding, I have no such merits...

                Well, Paleobird is the self-proclaimed former "body builder" here, so maybe you'll better ask her? Good luck anyway...

                  I did do bodybuilding but that was thirty years ago. It is also how I know that the ultra low fat/high carb bodybuilding diet is very detrimental to health in the long run. (Not to mention boring as all heck.) Gorbag is the one who starts threads about showing your "gunz".

                  But seriously this squabbling is not helping the OP any. Best of luck to you.

                    Last time I had a margarita, I was like, how could I ever have drunk anything so sweet?

                      • Ok so for an update..........

                        It's official I did shock my body!! I consumed a very high carb & calorie meal. A couple things I noticed right away:
                        I was shocked at how awful I felt and surprised that I used to function under that fog for years!!
                        My body utilizes insulin differently than in the past!! I figured my carb to insulin ratio as I would in the past and come to find out I did not need that much so I battled low blood sugars most of the night!! I ended up having to eat even more carbs!!
                        The next morning I was up 1 pound!!
                        During all of this I was battling posterior tibial tendonitis which inhibited my working out!! I was very much discouraged!!
                        I did realize that the way of Primal eating had more of a positive effect on the way I felt and I wasn't going to let the lack of weight loss defeat me!!
                        I ended up basically taking a week off of exercising but focused on my meals!! I have cut my fruit intake back but didn't change much else!!
                        As of last Thursday I was still at the same weight but had lost 1 whole body percentage fat?? How does that work?? I am taking it for what it is and continuing my journey!! One day at a time and focusing on how great I feel!!!

                          It's possible to loose fat and gain muscle in the same period of time under certain circumstances, especially when you are new to resistance training or regaining lost strength i.e. you have trained in the past lost some muscle and regain it much more easy again...
