Okay, this is maybe an odd little question.
The benefits of going high fat/protein-low carb are very obvious to me. And now my wife is intrigued (I think it was watching me flash-fry eggs in bacon grease that won her over) . . . which is what I have been subtly pushing for since I discovered (and became convinced of) primal eating.
Here's the thing. I do the cooking in our house, so we're having a lot of primal meals, but she generally forages for her own lunch and breakfast and snacks.
What I know is going to end up happening, until she's all the way convinced, is she's going to be taking in high fat on one end of her diet and high carbs (read as bread and rice and potatoes) on the other.
She's been following a low fat, calorie counting diet and losing weight on it (the hard way, of course). So, I guess what I want to know is, Will eating high fat and high carbs just be a double whammy for her in this transitional phase?
Keep in mind, she could be on the fence for awhile.
Is high fat at all helpful if you don't significantly reduce carbs as well? (Other than that it will keep her fuller and thus less likely to eat quite so many carbs).
I'm convinced once she sees me dropping the weight and once she sees my bloodwork in August she'll come on over to the dark side. But in the meanwhile I don't want to sabotage her efforts if a partial fix is going to do more harm than good.
