    I agree PJAP, it's the principle of the matter that is more important to me. I was actually thinking about that yesterday, the difference between "low carb" and Primal. Low carb can be anything, including A LOT of frankenfoods. Primal is low-carb as a byproduct of eschewing the foods that our bodies are not adapted to consume. Totally different.


    With that in mind, someone that claims to be on a "low carb" diet could justify a sandwich once or even twice a week if they really wanted to as long as overall carbs are low. I couldn't handle that because I know how big pieces of bread immediately cause stomach distress, and because I'd rather eat more meat and fat than stuff myself with useless bread.

    Exactly, low carb doesn't imply anything other than an arbitrary number. When I originally went LC I specifically also went grain- and legume-free, not just because they were so high in carbs, but because of all the things I'd learned that made me decide they weren't suitable for human consumption under any circumstances (other than survival without starvation when there is absolutely no alternative).
