    That's a quick way to lose a GF, at least if it were me. If someone is going to give me a lecture, he better do it to my face so I can shove 30 bananas down his throat.

    If you've been on this low-carb for over a month, then you're probably already fat-adapted, that is, ramped up the fat-burner hormones. If you fell that you have made that transition, then you can...

    Not according to man magnets like body shots over low-cut jeans, strips joints, and the Victoria's Secret catalog.

    Honey is about as primal as it gets. Since your'e active and working out, you probably need those carbs.

    Naughton made a big deal of this in Fathead. Since Spurlock was so resistant about his food journal (I don't think he ever published it), I have to assume that Spurlock manipulated his entire data...

    I agree with this. As far as I know, I'm the only poster who wonders about the amounts of primal food, not just whether a food is primal. But at one point, I think Mark questioned it too. I vaguely...

    There are some debates here on the forums. But these debates are generally fine tuning within the PB, not something you would encounter from your CW SAD friends.

    You may come across the arguments...

    Actually we're doing pretty well this time. We seem to have established that higher carb-primal is a viable option for a good chunk of people. But many (most?) others need to stick with carb curve....

    Well yes of course consuming too many fat grams is consuming too many calories. But I make a distinction. If you tell someone they are eating too many calories, then they will cut down their...

    Definitely, I agree, and I've posted to a lot of newbie threads on this. But these newbies aren't eating too many calories, they are eating too many FAT GRAMS. That is, if they want to lose weight,...

    As for the primal menu -- I agree, I think Mark needs to post a Definitive Guide to the 80/20. I think 80/20 was originally intended to give some leeway for wine, or soybean oil at a restaurant,...

    NotR, some answers:

    1 -- My sig says that I'm a short woman. So 80-90 carbs for me pretty much IS maintenance level. :D

    2,3 -- My 25-30% is definitely ball park. I think it's a spectrum. A...

    And NotR, yes it's very easy to achieve 300g carb/day if you eat that much fruit and dairy. But I don't see that in the general population. CW SAD primary carbs is grains/rice and sugar. If you...

    Because all around me it's proven that the carb curve is ture for so many other people? Many posters and most of the success stories.

    I have given the carb wars a lot of thought. I have a...

    Your post is some pretty tortured English. But if I understand it correctly, you're saying that there are "lots" of Westerners who eat more than 150 g of fruit and potatoes without swelling up like...

    If it works for me and other people, then it is NOT bogus nonsense. Treating the carb curve as some necessary but abnormal protocol IS starting the carb war back up. The carb curve is not...

    Mark himself is the one pushing nuts and praising macadamias to the sky, NOT the forums. The forums have been discouraging nuts for weight loss for months. Newbies come in fairly often asking why...

    Well, to be a genuine a-hole and act as logical fallacy police, technically it's more of a moot point than a strawman. And nobody "begs the question" correctly either.* :p :D

    I agree with this. And to be honest, what really convinced me was the pix of Mark, right here on MDA. I said, "Why bother racking my brain with the science? I'm not gonna argue with a 57-year-old...
