    I know Peat recommends grass-fed ruminants if one is eating meat. However, for budgetary reasons, are 99% FF ground turkey/chicken breast/pork tenderloin okay? The source is not ideal, but the...

    Peat clearly is unorthodox in some ways, but also seems wicked smart to me anyway. I haven't read the exact article in question, but this doesn't sound too far from a more spiritual perspective on...

    I have a couple thoughts. I do agree carbs later in the day can be a better idea. However, I think you are possibly over-reacting to a bit of a rise in hunger, especially since you don't seem too...

    I just want to share that I'm at least experimentally on the Peat bandwagon.

    Yesterday was really my first day of bringing in some changes, but I feel much better today. Drank some OJ yesterday...

    I agree about carb refeeds. I hope I made that clear. I'm on that bandwagon.

    Anyway, yes, your idea of balance and yin and yang makes a lot of intuitive sense. Worth thinking more about. I also...

    I know this thread is very dead, and I'm not sure I have anything to add to bring it to life, but this was a thought provoking thread, even if some of the back and forth was not productive.

    It could be too many calories. At his weight though, I would doubt he could eat too many on a VLC diet at his weight. Exceptions to every rule though. I wouldn't think he'd need a refeed, but I think...

    I think carb refeeds can help a lot. Don't worry, I think you'll slip easily back into ketosis afterwards. A lot of people do them once a week to jump start the metabolism, normalize hormones, etc -...

    I fit into the camp that Neckhammer mentioned where I probably crashed in the vicinity of 6 months with some solid working out throughout (cardio in the beginning, weightlifting and cardio later)...

    So just to update, I ate my first non potato meal in 4 days this morning.

    I don't use a scale, but there definitely was some difference on the body fat caliper. Not quite as much as I expected,...

    I agree. I think a period to upregulate fat burning metabolism and such is very important. It's just the metabolic part of the equation the SAD does not allow us to have.

    Building off the sociocultural comments, I actually think Paleo will gain in some acceptance, but will never be mainstream. Society can't handle it being mainstream. It is too threatening to the...

    I think there has been some moderation in the Paleo approach due to an overly strict and dogmatic approach. That said, I think a conservative approach was very warranted. People are trying to widen...

    Valid question. I'm sort of doing CBL myself. I'm wondering if I really only need one day a week of carb backloading.

    Carb Nite is not for people over 20% in my understanding. I could be wrong. If anything, I would think it's for people under it, who have plateaued using whatever method they were using. Carb Nite...

    So I guess I should mention here that I decided to jump in and give this a try for 4 days.

    Ate probably close to 3 pounds of boiled potatoes yesterday. (Basically 3 full plates of them). I still...

    I should also add, that after I began carb refeeds, I lost 7-10 pounds over a few months.

    ELQ,

    There has been some good and not so good advice in this thread, IMO. I've had a somewhat similar experience to you. I had a very good success with VLC paleo style eating. Plateaued for...

    I don't know if this really makes sense. What bodily functions? Do you have evidence of slowing transport of nutrients? In fact, stress increases catecholamines which mobilize energy in reaction to...

    Marie,

    Yeah, I'm finding Mark's laid back approach might be best for me. I can be very intense in trying to reach my goals, but also am laid back otherwise. I think my obsessive side will take...

    Stress and weight changes

    caveBEE,

    Well I'm glad the results are going well for you! Definitely keep me updated. Obviously, I'm particularly interested in whether your lifts suffer or your gain the weight back easily.
