    Primal is NOT low carb. You can choose to go low carb or not, but it's not specifically part of the WOL unless you are trying to specifically shed weight; for that, Mark does recommend watching carbs. However, if someone has a high level of activity it may be better to have those carbs. Primal is not one size fits all, and everyone can take the framework and adapt it to what works for them.

    Thanks Jakey. I bought some great butter and coconut fat today. My wife thinks I am crazy because saturated fat is to be avoided in her opinion like the plague.

    Doesn't matter, you're mis-representing what Primal is and what Mark has written. Please cite where Mark says you must be low-carb, if you're so confident that that's what Primal is all about.

    And you know nothing about me, my education, my training. So there, how's that for being hoist with your own petard?

    I am one of those people who does not have to lose weight. I'm trying to add weight by putting muscle on. I usually eat between 100 to 150g of carbs a day plus I practice Aikido 3 to 4 times a week. It sounds like some on the forum go against what the primal blueprint says which is low carbs.

    It seems like some think a person need to up their carbs if they want to put on muscle and weight while others are saying more fat and protein. What gives?

    Because there's not one single way to do things. People are adding in with what has worked for them and what they've read.

    Again, please cite where Mark says that Primal is low carb.

    In all likelihood, when you cut out grains and processed foods, your carb intake wil be much lower than a person following the SAD.

    There are some folks who follow the Primal WOL who routinely consume <100 g. carbs/day, who consume your 100-150 g. carbs/day, or who may consume >150 g. carbs regularly. The driver of health is not an arbitrary carb limit. It's more about eliminating bad quality foods and bad lifestyle habits, and replacing them with good ones. How many carbs you eat should adhere more closely to your level of activity.

    If you have any other questions about the Primal WOL, read the books, or consult other posters here. They will be glad to help you. I must leave now. Buh bye!
