    Okay, here's a little update:

    Two weeks into shifting my macros to 50:30:20 (fat:carb:protein), I haven't gained a single pound. My daily average is just below 4,000 calories a day. I know I will...

    Is hypoglycemia often accompanied by adrenal fatigue? I would imagine it would be stressful on your adrenal cortex and medulla to be releasing cortisol and epi so often to stimulate gluconeogenesis....

    Angel, I myself do not fall into a VLC woe. My macros are 50:30:20 fat, carbs, protein. I was just curious to know if there was any type of biological mechanism that would cause hypoglycemia as a...

    Insulin and hypoglycemia - VLC vs PHD

    Okay, I have a question for you science folk to ponder.

    I listened to a podcast today, Jimmy Moore's LLVLC, in which he was speaking of his experience with hypoglycemia after a long stint of a...

    I have no bias here, but I will come to 2ndchances defense. Katherine, it is coming off that you don't quite grasp 2ndchances original piece of advice, and are attacking them for it. 2ndchance simply...

    This is the second thread I have seen you say this. Do you genuinely believe this is sound advice? If so, why do more people not lift this way?

    Kimchi, how fast are you able to gain muscle? I ate 4,000 calories per day for around two months on a 65% fat, 15% carb diet and couldn't put on even a pound of weight. In fact, I went from 175 to...

    Okay, I am back. I just got back from spring break, so I took a full week off of lifting and intense eating. However, I did stuff my face with abundant amounts of seafood, and was able to maintain my...

    Okay, this makes good sense. But I have a few questions about it...

    Does this work the same for everyone? Or only those whose muscles are insulin sensitive?

    Hypothetically, say you have a 150g...

    My intake yesterday was 52% fat, 24% carbs, and 24% protein for a total of 4000 calories. This is a decent shift from the 65/15/20 I had been implementing. I honestly feel more recovered today than I...

    And please, let's not let this thread become a debate between CW and Primal/Paleo. I think we can all appreciate the factual science and also agree that carbs are not the devils preferred food.
  12. I agree on all accounts. Come to think of it,...

    I agree on all accounts. Come to think of it, about a year ago in the midst of a running injury I lifted for about three months and recall getting up to 180 pounds. However, I was consuming in xs of...

    Rug, I am curious why you find that it's carbs that will help with muscle building instead of fat. What is the mechanism? Insulin to restore glycogen to your muscles post workout?
  14. Yeah, I'm definitely not gaining any fat. I am...

    Yeah, I'm definitely not gaining any fat. I am going to up my carbs and protein, then. I have a huge bag of organic quinoa I could put to use. I'll shift my macros and stick with SS for now and see...

    I am guessing you mean carbs that are also a source of nutrients/AOs. Fruits, veggies, etc. I only say this because you say fat can be empty calories, but so can carbs depending on the source. But I...

    I'm 22 years old. I lifted religiously from 7th to 12th grade. Over the past four years I have lifted off and on without any serious goals, and all while running anywhere from 40-90 miles a week...

    Ha, I appreciate the offer, but I am sure it'll be worth it. I am indeed a voracious reader so this will be the next on my list after I finish my current book. Thanks for the advice. Also, $30 for...

    I'm 22 years old. I feel like the sprint session that I do on Fridays is what slows down my recovery. But I may try spacing out my workouts more if this problem persists.

    Rich - I am just curious...

    Thanks for the advice everyone.

    Just cooked up my first bit of liver. Can't say it will be added to my repertoire of food...but I'll certainly begin to eat more on my recovery days.

    Anyway, I...

    Gosh, the thought of eating more makes me sick! Eating this many calories primally makes it so much more difficult.

    Anyway, I have a feeling I could be overtraining. I don't feel entirely...

    I love this story. Whether or not it was the sugar that spurred the outburst, it certainly didn't help, I am sure. This reminds me of a point Dr Cate Shanahan made in her book "Deep Nutrition": how...

    This was my exact case. I would binge eat ice cream and brownies like there was no tomorrow. Yet once I eliminated grains and sugar, it never happened again.

    This is what makes me laugh. People become so defensive when you suggest that sugar could be causing their problems. I have learned to let it go, as you have.
