Here's the part that explains to me why I do so much better with high fat rather than high carb eating:
"This means that lipogenesis will only exceed lipolysis during the hours after a meal (known as the postprandial period). During times when you are fasting (such as extended times between meals, or when you are asleep), lipolysis will exceed lipogenesis (meaning you are burning fat)."
Eating high carb, I didn't have extended times between meals, because I got so darned hungry I had to snack. Eating primal, I either don't need to or just need the tiniest something to eat. Sometimes I miss lunch altogether because I'm not hungry. I thought the explanation was blood sugar spikes and crashes related to insulin. Maybe it's NOT insulin, but it's sure as heck something!
Zone diet on and off for several years....worked, but too much focus on exact meal composition
Primal since July 2010...skinniest I've ever been and the least stressed about food
