    What are you trying to do, cannibalize your lean body mass? Increase the protein and carbs, cut the fat in half.

    Excess calories are excess calories.

    If that's well above your daily burn, then the excess will get packed on, no matter what the ratio of carbs or protein or fat.

    The regular DEXA scans confirm I am losing fat, not lean mass.

    Sorry, you're wrong again. :)

    My dinner tonight was granola drowned in chocolate milk - and I'm losing tons of weight - *ANY* combination of food will shed body fat if it is eaten at a caloric deficit.

    Sprinting (assuming your body can take it) is always a good fitness thing, but it burns very few calories during the exercise (Usain Bolt burns less than 20 calories(!) running at world-record...

    That happens to a lot of people, don't sweat it. I was on the "50g/day" plan for about a year. Eventually I was too fit and active for that, and this past summer I completely restructured my macros....

    Cows are a farm animal, beef is therefore not primal by definition.

    However that's not the point - the point is this is yet another fad diet consisting of a ridiculously small variety of foods....

    #1 - Eat at a caloric deficit. Nothing happens without this. There are a million ways to achieve this, use whatever works for you.

    Why mess around with all the complexity? Just jump into something like a dead-simple Stronglifts 5x5 routine, and off you go! You'll be the toast of the weight room in no time.

    Well, the bacon, chicken, peas and tomatoes aren't primal, but if you enjoyed it, who cares?

    Grok would not be eating food from a grocery store or meat from farm animals, either. If you want an approximation of Grok's life, go watch a few episodes of "Naked and Afraid".

    If he is going to do it with diet alone, he would have to cut his intake to the equivalent of eating literally nothing at all for six of the next 10 weeks.

    That's a brutally hard path...

    I suspect the length of time until hitting that wall is closely tied to the type of exercise being performed, and to the "fat level" of the individual. Even at high levels of fat adaptation, there is...

    Basically looking at 30 pounds in 10 weeks. 3 pounds a week. Caloric deficit of 1500 calories a day. For a body with a sedentary TDEE of about 2200.

    That is going to be very very hard to do....

    If she's not losing weight (but needs to) then she's simply eating too much. No amount of "clean" is going to compensate for a caloric surplus.

    Rippetoe didn't say curls are off limits. Rippetoe advocates chinups over curls for novice level lifters as it builds a better base over a larger group of muscles. To quote him directly:
