    Requesting Carbohydrate Curve Research References

    Primal Fuel
    I'm new on the forum, started on the diet a week ago, and have hopped and skipped around the book.

    I love the Carb Curve idea, but would appreciate some references and links to more in-depth info before I start sharing this info with my patients.

    Always more to learn . . . Thanks!

    Not my bisiness but if you're interested in carbohydrate-restriction for medical applications why wouldn't you contact the American Society of Bariatric Physicians. I guess this site is aimed at "end-users" and won't go into the kind of depth you'd want.

    Thanks Lewis

    I'm really looking for a reply from Mark on this one, since it's his book. This is such an important piece of information that it deserves a reference.

    I'd suggest emailing him directly then since he doesn't tend to post on the forum often.

    hey, you're not going to find any scientific evidence backing up the PB carbohydrate curve, because, though i love mark, it's complete bullshit. there's no magical number (150 or otherwise) at which carbs lead to weight gain (insidious or otherwise).

    Yeah, I was dropping weight steadily in the 100-150 range and have slowed as I have gotten below 100. Of course I am closer to a normal weight, so slower is to be expected, regardless. If I was larger, I bet I could have lost weight in the insidious range, just because my total calories would have been more. In fact, I'm pretty sure my 5'11" husband lost his whole 40 lbs in the insidious range, because he has never given up grains completely.

    Why would someone claiming to be a doctor not go to a professional organization for doctors. Mystifying!
