You have no clue about me.
If you have been paleo for over a year and haven't lost any weight, that's probably a great indicator that what you're doing isn't working well. Fat is almost always what is being stored as fat in every case - even on the SAD (which is a huge problem because you're storing unsaturated fat in your tissues). Maybe try a more balanced (i.e. less extreme) approach and simply embrace whole foods instead of a paradigm.
It takes serious effort to eat 70% calories from fat. The only people you'll find doing that are those that do it on purpose. That is not paleo/primal/whatever you want to call it.
"Just eat real food" - that statement is lost on the majority.
Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.
Choco, do you know the greatest part of every post you make?
"Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success."
And that's what we should all be paying attention to...
Because your response to me above to me is way off IME and IMO.
"If you have been paleo for over a year and haven't lost any weight, that's probably a great indicator that what you're doing isn't working well."
But this is spot on... and why someone might want to try out HFLC... and it might just work for them.
And your way might not.
This isn't about your way being right or mine being right... it's about what works for each individual.
“You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist.”
And that's why I'm here eating HFLC Primal/Paleo.

You may have some good points but they get lost or dismissed because of your holier than thou, absolute, know it all, approach. You are a very young man and, with all due respect, your lack of life experience shows in how you come across.
I have been eating my way for over 4 years. I also have health issues. Diabetes runs rampant in my family, causing loss of limbs and lives. I do not want to develop that dreaded disease. What I am doing is helping me avoid it. Four years of test results support my choices.
I have lost and kept off about 50 lbs. I make the choices I do because they work for ME. I have done the research I need to do for me. I read everything I think I can learn from.
I eat whole foods. I also, occasionally, eat not so whole or healthy foods and that is MY choice. I try tweaks and discard what doesn't work for ME.
I find it sad that while you want people to see YOUR point, you make no apparent effort to see THEIRS.
I respect your right to eat what and how you choose. Please respect the rights of others do what they choose and tone down, what I see as, your pompous, judgmental, dismissive approach.
