[QUOTE]I think that its possible to have 'rabbit starvation' eating lean meats within the confines of paleo. If you lift weights and eat nothing but steak then you quite possibly are getting too much protein. It's really eating too much lean protein that is the problem. Fat fat fatty fat is all good[/QUOTE]
Are you sure that's really possible? I thought lean meat became repulsive over a certain threshold.
Of course it's possible for people to eat too much protein and not enough fats/carbs. It's unsatisfying for your brain and your body, but if no carbs or fats are available, slow protein starvation is better than the alternative, right?

Sorry, I know rabbit starvation is possible. I meant, is it possible for someone just following a diet, with plenty of access to normal foods, to harm themselves that way? Especially primal, which does not restrict fat or vegetables? I wouldn't expect anyone following paleo/primal to have that problem.
Part of the 'evidence' in the article in the OP that low carb is bad is a scientific trial of a low carb / low fat / high protein diet. Aka rabbit starvation. And surprise surprise, that's bad for you. It's worse for you than HCLF. Which (we would argue) is worse than LCHF.
I agree with you that that type of diet is not primal. It's just that some people (including the article) are conflating the results of LCLFHP diets with low carb diets in general.
for good health it is necessary that you need to have
low fat and sugar containing diets
low consumpion of meat products
consumpion of green vegetables and fruits in diet
these all things can help in good fitness of the body as well as growth
I used to eat for health, LOL. So healthy to have foods you eat trigger sugar binges and make you doze off during afternoons.
These people DON'T get it. And when you fail at these "diets" they accuse you of being either weak willed or lazy. Fuck that shit.
When I lose the rest of my weight, I want to go to all of these places that advocate low fat whole grain and exercise and tell them that I took their advice and was a fat ass. And the second I changed, weight started coming off. At least they need to admit it doesn't work for everyone and that there are alternatives.
