@fiercehunter: Primal/Paleo by itself is NOT high in PUFAs seeing as how fat from animals is generally sat. fat. O3 and O6 being essential fatty acids that the body can't make on its own are necessary from diet. Adding a lot of extra oils to your diet would increase the PUFAs though and if your ratio way way off it could have been creating an environment rife with inflammation. If you were also consuming a fair amount of fruit with that way of eating it could have created a bigger problem with weight control.
If the Ray Peat W.O.E. works for you, great, that doesn't mean it will work for everyone.
