    Good for you, man. But you have an extremely annoying habit of finding what works for you, understanding it incompletely and then annoiting yourself the expert on other's diet choices. You're the...

    Jesus Christ, categorical much?

    Real (secure) men can like whatever damn body types they please without labeling other men as brainwashed or gay.

    They're blenders, dude. I can tell the difference between a Vitamix and a Hamilton Beach. I have no idea what the "best" premium blender would even look like. I can't imagine anything my Vitamix...

    I imagine both are similarly easy to clean. With a vitamix, you essentially fill it half up with water, add a drop of dishwashing liquid and run the machine on high for a while. You might then have...

    I agree with pandadude's dose of sanity. It's hard to quantify what the original poster's caloric needs are. An estimate of his BMR yields 3850 calories a day without any exercise. Which means 2-3...

    Cross-fit endurance has a similar concept. I do the bare minimum amount of long runs. I essentially trained to get better at the 5K and only added more miles once my VO2 max was pretty good. I...

    Have you had your bodyfat percentage tested? You're active. You're my height and 15 lbs lighter than I am. And I'm at 15% bodyfat according to a Dexa scan. Meaning that 160 may be completely...

    One thing to keep in mind about this type of Garmin is that the "ANT+" type sensors won't broadcast to most standard gym equipment the way a run of the mill polar monitor will. I have the Garmin 410...

    What neither Robb or Mark have ever said is that its impossible to ingest too many calories (for weight loss) so long as the calories are primal. That doesn't mean that calorie counting is part of...

    All weight watchers does is provide a system to estimate calories. There's nothing inherently inconsistent with Primal about that. Plenty of people around here stall. And some people have found...

    I do the spaghetti squash or julienned zucchinni thing for my wife, but if I'm alone I prefer not trying to make my squash mimic pasta. I think it's more satisfying to just make a good italian...

    I would say that a disability can impair health, yes. That's not a value judgment. My mother has MS. It's not her fault that she can't get up and walk to the bathroom, but I assure you that her...

    A lot of us are in that position, which is a very different position than Griff.

    Listen, it's hard to have that much sympathy for Griff. The guy was completely dogmatic about lots of stuff on...

    Others may disagree, but for the type of serious weight loss you're looking to achieve, I think it helps to think of "primal" or "paleo" dieting as a destination and not as the place that you start...

    What insights do you have to offer someone trying to figure out how to maintain a long term weight loss? I'm not trying to be a jerk about this. Your progress is awesome. You have every right to...

    I'm pretty sure we have people on this forum who could tell their own yo-yo dieting stories, even following the primal paradigm. Maintaining a 100 lb weight loss is hard. Your body doesn't want it...

    There is a subset of people on this board who have kickstarted their weight-loss by eating more carbohydrates. I doubt that even Mark's thinking about these subjects became fixed in stone with the...

    I do think it's mostly the calories. I'm a 215 lb guy, and my basal metabolism is somewhere around 2700/day. My wife, who is about 10 lbs heavier than the OP is around 2200 calories before workouts...

    The Dupont Farmer's market every Sunday is a good source for grass fed beef, bison, offal, pastured and fermented dairy, and free range eggs. I'm sure Eastern Market is even better. Whole foods...

    I suppose another factor is that the people in the community who do seem to stress that calories matter, like Colpo and the Carb Sane lady, are kind of unpleasant.

    Ketostix won't always show when you're in ketosis. For one thing, they only measure one type of ketone. For another, they only measure ketones that are passed out of your body. If your body is...
