I had a shock this morning and an unwelcome one at that. I woke wide eyed and bushy tailed at 6am on a Saturday!!!!! Saturday is my one day to sleep in and I didn't get to! Curses!!!!!
I did try out a new recipe last night for a Deep Dish Pizza that my entire family loved. I will add that to the recipe thread in a bit. It was delicious and very filling.
Everyone is doing a great job!!! Keep on!
I agree with Primal123. Sounds like the Primal Blueprint was working great for you. Why change things so soon? Having said that, you are welcome here and we will help you figure out the higher fat macros if you want to do it.
Wow, that was a poorly timed bout of food poisoning!!! Thirty pages in the meantime . . .
So today is the scheduled FAIL and tomorrow it's back to business. Hope everyone is well!

Stop poisoning yourself with your leet cooking skills Pandapants! :p

we were making lite of the oliogiofructose claims. Unfortunately, apparently, some thought we were serious.
regarding the protein intake I have seen it stated by "experts" that somewhere around 25g at one sitting is probably all the body can use up. Obviously it is different for everyone, but if you are having trouble getting into ketosis and you are eating your macros but all of your protein is in one sitting you might consider shifting things around.
[QUOTE=canio6;1088971]Quick clarification on what the two of you are stating here...I am not trying to be wilfully obtuse or cause an argument, but what I am reading/understanding may not be what you are both saying, hence the question...
It is my understanding that a calorie = a calorie in that they are both equal measures of heat or some such.
It is also my understanding that each person requires a certain number of these calories daily to maintain their BMR. This can increase or decrease based on age, sex, weight, activity level, medical conditions, metabolism, etc.
Given these two ideas it would seem that if correct BMR was 1,500 calories, it would not matter where these 1,500 calories came from, as if 1,500 calories were consumed, weight (all things being equal) would remain the same. Excess calories would lead to gain, a deficeit would lead to weight loss.
Now, I freely admit that it is far easier to over eat calories on certain foods (junk foods). I can easily eat a 1,000 bag of chips and still be hungry and thus eat 1000 calories more of some other junk. Where as, it is far harder to eat more after eating a pound of steak cooked in butter, which has about the same caloric numbers (1000). This has nothing to do with the number of calories or the quality of calories but in the characteristics of the food themselves - one being more nutritious/satiating than the other.
As such, what I think you are both trying to say is that if one is eating higher quality food sources (non-processed, real foods - meat, vegetables, fats) and not junk foods this leads to weight loss because your body consumes less calories. Not what it appears on the surface that 1000 calories of meat is somehow different than 1000 calories of junk.
Is that correct?
I ask because it can be confusing to some if they think they can eat all the primal foods they want and due to 'quality calories' not gain weight. It has been my experience, that this simply is not true. I can easily gain weight eating too many primal calories.
or am I completely losing my mind?

You are correct... but I also said that one day out of many isn't going to totally derail his progress. If you're hungry, you should eat.

I agree to an extent. One day does not a lifetime make. That said, if I ate every time I felt hungry, especially at first, (and my question was asked mostly for clarification for new folks) I would have overeaten daily. I think at some point you have to say, I am allowed X calories. I have had X calories. I am done.
So if I can pull my pants on and off without unsnapping or unzipping, does that mean I actually lost while traveling? :D will weigh in the morning.
