    One new thing I'm doing is the Resistant Starch deal. I've been taking some unmodified potato starch daily and I like what it's doing for me. I have some crazy ass dreams lately! Here I thought the lucid dream claims by Nikoley were a bunch of bullshit. It's actually surprising.
    can you tell me about this dream thing please?
    "Ah, those endless forests, and their horror-haunted gloom! For what eternities have I wandered through them, a timid, hunted creature, starting at the least sound, frightened of my own shadow, keyed-up, ever alert and vigilant, ready on the instant to dash away in mad flight for my life. For I was the prey of all manner of fierce life that dwelt in the forest, and it was in ecstasies of fear that I fled before the hunting monsters."

    First bit sounds just like me, seems to work without tweaks

    I have been intrigued by the RS thing, might experiment (have in fact been eating more cooked and cooled potatoes and rice recently in fact)

    The weird thing for me is that I basically went off the grid for a good year plus, and when I started looking around here and other Paleo/Primal sites, I didn't recognize a lot of things. Beans, potatoes, rice, upping the carbs, cooling it on the fat, etc. A lot of it seems to make sense, it just struck me as weird because I basically made my body changes by doing everything you're not supposed to do now - low carb, lots of meat and fat, no potatoes, etc. It's interesting how things have changed.

    Most of the regulars I knew from 2-3 years ago don't seem to be around anymore. Too bad.
    I can agree with that. I can't believe the number of people here who advocate rice and potatoes so much. Sure, if you're fit and it works, yeah. But most people on here are starting from a fat body and want to lose weight and learn about proper diet. So many people here are like "up the carbs, lower the fat" and i'm just like ".... who are these people?"

    The thing is, some of these people are NOT fit and it works (higher carb and lower fat). Proper diet does not have to be low carb. Sometimes low carb just doesn't work, and we don't have the answers for everyone. I think it's important to encourage people to figure out what works for themselves, and that means seeing lots of different options.

    I'm not fat or fit, yet I eat higher carb and am not gaining fat.

    Just because you're not gaining fat or not fat now doesn't mean you are healthy. This is explained very clearly in The Primal Blueprint.

    Additionally I call complete bullshit on this "what works for some doesn't work for others."

    BALONEY!

    Humans share 99% of their DNA with chimps. They share even more DNA with other human (obviously). For overweight unhealthy individuals looking to lose weight, a low carb, high fat, high protein diet is the way to go. It is all about insulin. Period.

    You are either healthy or unhealthy. There is no middle ground.

    potatoes/sweet potatoes, fruit, white rice, etc are all healthy food choices. there isn't anything in those foods that is unhealthy. so eat up.

    it actually isn't all about insulin. <ducks for cover> sorry...

    Oh please. Apparently grok drank vats of fat and wild game is full of animal fats right?

    If you want to shun carbs that is fine, more carbs for us.

    Grok didn't eat rice and potatoes all day. He ate meat. He ate what he killed.

    Why anyone who is so into carbs and low fat is on this forum is beyond me. There is nothing paleo or primal about high carb low fat. This quote is exactly what is wrong with this forum these days.

    actually, a substantial portion of ancestral nutrition came from fruit and tubers. the whole "cavemen eat meat" thing seems more like a marketing ploy than anything. sort of like atkins or something. as the ancestral eating movement has progressed, more of the real stuff has come to light.
