    nope she's arguing your advocation of eating sugars

    advocation probably isn't a word, but you see where i'm going with this
    beautiful
    yeah you are

    It seems that way...

    The role of sugar in restraining hormones of adaptation becomes clear when one considers the hormonal cascade that follows the stress response.

    When blood sugar runs low, glycogen is used to fulfill glucose requirements. When glycogen is depleted, adrenaline (and several other hormones) are released to mobilize free fatty acids from the tissue.

    Normally, the release of saturated fats would create a 'negative feed back loop' of sorts and restrain the stress response.

    If unsaturated fats are present in the tissue, however, the stress response is intensified; increasing estrogen, cortisol, tryptophan's conversion into serotonin, prolactin, etc.

    Please, do not take my word for it. This can be confirmed by exploring any physiology text.

    I never claimed to know lab work that was not done, only results I have seen. Yes, Dad's case is anecdotal but look at all the other people for whom this is working. He's far from unusual.
    Not only is the paleo diet "not incompatible with health", it is the best way to achieve it that I know of.
    Eating sugar is incompatible with the paleo diet anything other than in small quantities and very infrequently.

    If you are arguing for limiting PUFAs and emphasizing saturated fats in the diet, terrific. Paleo is already all over that. You don't need sugar for this to work just fine.

    I recently read a study hat showed a 33% increase in CHD with an increase in dietary sugars.
    Might have to find it... seems significant to all this.

    @paleobird, consider this: unless one has been meticulously avoiding PUFA for several years, has a very healthy thyroid, and a resilient liver, they are likely to have an abundance of unsaturated fats in their tissue.

    During stress (low blood sugar, low glycogen), these unsaturated fats are released into the serum, causing inflammation and intensifying stress.

    Sugar intake and promoting the storage of glycogen (fructose, thyroid) are very important factors in reducing stress.

    You can see how running on fatty acids is problematic (reducing blood sugar and glycogen stores).

    Less assertions, more facts please.

    Low blood sugar is only a stress for a sugar burning metabolism. A fat adapted metabolism doesn't get "low blood sugar attacks".

    Again asserting that sugar reduces stress=/=proving it.

    Running on fatty acids (if by that you mean PUFAs) is obviously not good. That's why the Primal diet minimizes them.
