    Why are you here? It's a basic tenant of primal.

    I think THAT is the problem with this forum. You guys haven't read the book. Or any other books that explain it in black and white. Crazy lady on here talking about how she eats paleo/primal with high carb and low fat and 'not fit but no fat' bullplop.



    well your definition of 'hell of a lot of fat' is important, but if you look at the macronutrients in eating an animal it would be high fat and protein, super small carbs. yes, carbs would be in the diet. but nowhere near what anyone would consider 'high carb' or even 'medium carb'

    we're talking pre-agricultural revolution here people
    so whatever mark writes is gospel truth? I certainly hope you don't believe that. I've read the book. hell, I've read it twice. I've been on this forum since june of 2010. I keep abreast with other paleo sites. I stay on this forum because of the fact that it has a bunch of intelligent people who are helping to progress the paleo movement and provide new levels of understanding about ancestral eating. hell, mark doesn't even stick to his guns about what he wrote in the original book. why are you?

    ok. let's play this one out. so grok ate game meats, tubers, fruit, leafy greens, fish etc. right? high protein, low fat, moderate carb? grok ate nothing but meat and sticks. high protein, low fat low carb. how exactly is that consistent with adding butter to your coffee, or dousing veggies in butter or olive oil. well marbled beef? not paleo. domesticated livestock? not paleo. bacon? certainly not paleo . at the end of the day, paleo eating is pretty low fat.

    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.
    Were you simultaneously trying to make a point and then refute your own point? I don't think you know how DNA works, and you obviously don't know how insulin works. Here, I'll help you out:

    The chromosomes you inherit consist of proteins called histones, which unwind to allow DNA to be read -- think of DNA like a computer code that uses 4 different chemical bases, which are recognized by letters A, C, G, and T. Your genes are strings of DNA which codes for polypeptides(chemically linked amino acids). The order of the aforementioned letters determine which polypeptide is made, and stringing different polypeptides together produces different proteins. This is what gives us our various different traits. Even further, the epigenome determines whether or not a string of DNA is read, which obviously differs between people. Going further with this, there are other things to consider like genetic distance, populations, etc; Now you should see how frivolous it is to try to base your diet around what your ancestors ate many, many years ago; or even more absurd -- what a different species eats.

    Your post is merely an argument from ignorance(fail to recognize how complex DNA is) using tautology.

    P.S. Grok is a fictitious character.

    The Primal Blueprint is pseudoscience, using a priori assumption of a thing with descriptive(selective reading) or normative(subjective) principles proven through deductive reasoning rather than inductive science; submerged in tons of cherry picking. Reading the book, the message I took away was that the claims it makes(modern diseases in an umbrella definition for example) are impossible to quantify, unfalsifiable, and empirically useless.

    If I just said LOL, I lied. Do or do not. There is no try.

    Well, we'll all have to agree to disagree. I'm left with an unanswered question and an answered question.

    Unanswered Question - Why half or more of you people are here on the The Primal Blueprint's website for Mark Sisson when you don't subscribe to the basic outlines.

    Answered Question - Why all the good people left.

The value of the forum is no where as good as it was in the day which causes more knowledgeable folks to move on.

    This Forum Has Changed A Lot

    If by "well read" and"knowledgable" you mean of the PB book, mayyybe, although even that isn't true because most of is tried PB as written for more than a year before trying something else.

    I read scientific studies not blogs of gurus. If that means I am not well-read, then okay. I don't even really read ray peat stuff just the studies posted here and there that support his recs.

    You have a problem with fallacies I see. These people left -> these people were good -> these people left because of these people is a leap across a causal chasm with each additional variable becoming less and less provable(conjunction fallacy).

    You also proved my whole pseudoscience point by wanting a forum for your own exclusive safe group where you can all congratulate one another on your awesome progress, how right you are, and the others are just too unhealthy(LOL CAUSE OF THE CARBS AM I RIGHT GUYS) to get it. See: Funny CW moments thread.

    Yes, we'll have to agree to disagree. You're still wrong though. If it makes you feel any better, I've personally all but abandoned this forum as well.

    Maybe people are becoming hardcore paleo and staying away from the artificial light (computer screen).
    Stumbled into Primal due to food allergies, and subsequent elimination of non-primal foods.

    Start Gluten-Free/Soy-Free: December 2012; start weight 158lbs, Ladies size 6
    Start Primal: March 2013, start weight 150lbs, Ladies size 6
    Current: 132lbs, Ladies size 2
    F/23/5'9"

    26lbs lost since cutting the crap.

    you do realize that mark has changed his stance on a whole bunch of stuff that was originally in the book, right?

    the way I see it is that you are still stuck on the book that mark wrote all those years ago. a book that he has amended time and time again with his blog posts. a book that actually needs a second edition. a book that has little actual science in it's favor. so if you want to stick to mark's original 2009 book, so be it. but to insult the people here who are past paleo/primal 101 and more in agreement of 2014 mark sisson, perfect health diet, ray peat, etc doesn't make any sense.

    I get it sort of. you found mark's book. it changed your life. you moved on. you came back and didn't recognize the old neighborhood. it was weird and scary. now you're stuck in your shell. embrace evolution my friend. it's what humans have been doing for millions of years.
