    Really? :rolleyes: Are people addicted to fat that prefer to eat VLC? Change that statement to people need to justify their addiction to butter, bacon, and avocado. Ridiculous. The empirical data in...

    Ha, I find this ironic because if you switch VHC "carbs-make-saturated-fats" to VLC ketosis, the same argument can be made. Neither are long-term natural or optimal diets despite our body's ability...

    That's another thing: Many people who think that low-carb is what's curing their problems are masking the problems instead of fixing the underlying issue. Then they eat something high in carbs and...

    A satisfying last meal including starches and fruit should probably help your sleep. Potatoes are excellent.

    Yep. Just like we can agree that Primal may not be perfect (due to its carb curve, haha) it's still a good starting place and guidelines for most people. Adjust that as needed too, right? :)

    Exactly. Doesn't Mark like to say, "Don't let perfect be the enemy of good"? Well, tallying calories is not perfect, but it's a fairly close guideline for almost everyone. Adjust as needed. Done.

    This is offensive. You are dismissing what some people can do based on their age or physical fitness, as if they are outliers who have yet to hit a certain milestone. That's simply untrue. There are...

    We mostly agree. I like to call them calories, others prefer to call them by their individual macro as if one is more important than another by default. The individual must decide what and how much...

    You act as though there are dramatic shifts. Very few people are burning 2,000 calories one day and 3,700 the next without drastic shifts in activity or illness. The difference is marginal, but the...

    Sure, but I'd also cut from fat, protein, and alcohol if those calories are too high as well. The hypothetical 2,000 calories a day from carbs has been established, but how many calories from the...

    Yep, this. I find it amazing that carbs are singled out in equations of upwards of 500g on top of fat and protein calories; that doesn't just sound like hyper-caloric intake to anyone? It just sounds...

    As for weight gain after resuming old ways of eating, that's inevitable if your old habits lead to weight gain no matter what protocol you follow. That happens with any eating plan. Eat in a...
