I eat a "moderate" 125g carbohydrate, 110g protein, and the rest fat (my goal macros for a day). This breaks down to about 25% carb, 25% protein, 50% fat.
I've done LC a couple times, but I guess I'm too active to keep it permanently. I lost a little weight, but bonked athletically. I get blood sugar instability and just generally feel like crap if I go over the 140s though. I'm hoping sticking here for awhile and VERY gradually increasing will help with that.
I think it's a great tool to knock out cravings and regulate carb sensitivity, but unless you've got a reason (PCOS, epilepsy...), adding healthy sources, cycling, or moderating carbohydrate seem to be good for most people.
Honestly, primal is anywhere from 50-150g BEFORE accounting for activity levels. Primal/paleo is simply a guide to clean, nourishing foods and various tools to guide the individual to their ideal diet. It's too bad when I see people restricting a macro so intensely and giving up because "it didn't work."
yeah, but "hey i'm Khan the sword king" is not normal.... the universe is being fickle... this is a thing... ignore me for a few weeks.
