    Yeah, he he, he's not hard on the eyes. Plus he learned from his mistakes. That's always attractive. He says "coming soon" about his posts on the "zone of misery."

    Definitely not hard on the eyes AND he lives in San Diego.

    He has made references to the zone of misery a few times in his posts and replies to comments on his posts and so many people were interested that he has promised a whole article on it.

    Tried 5htp but no joy. Very happily bobbing along at 45igsh daily, no idea why I can tolerate that but no lower, but hey, "if it ain't broke" and my mood is fine........?

    I don't have too much to add about why but I also get in that zone of misery. I do well low carb or much higher. The in between doesn't work for me.

    I have been on and off Primal lately due to some stress but I think reading this thread and seeing that others have the same experience I need go back to low carb to get fully back into the swing of things. I don't even have to go that low carb. I can handle 75g a day and sometimes a bit more but once I go over 100g it doesn't work.
