    Mark's quote:
    "Fats have little or no impact on insulin and, as a result, promote the burning of both dietary and stored (adipose) fat as fuel."

    They read different to me RichMahogany. Mind you, it's 3am here and I'm a little tired.

    Easy enough to reconcile. I see what you're getting at.

    In a situation where your body is burning fat for fuel, it doesn't "care" where that fat comes from.

    Yeah, if you eat a billion grams of fat, you'll be in fat burning mode but still store fat. But what's more common is that your satiety signaling will tell you you've had enough, and you'll burn the fat you eat plus get the extra energy from your body's energy storage system, the adipose tissue.

    They aren't disagreeing. Yes, you can eat so much fat that you don't use any of your stored fat. But it isn't particularly easy to do in most cases. Make sense?

    How can you be in a fat burning mode and still store fat? That sounds very counter-intuitive.

    I'm new to PB so I could be misunderstanding, but I interpret the previous poster's comment to mean that just because you're in fat burning mode doesn't mean you're burning your stored body fat. If you're taking in too much dietary fat, then your body will simply burn that dietary fat for energy and continue storing any excess dietary fat, if any, that it doesn't burn. You are in fat burning mode, but you're not in stored body fat burning mode, you're essentially in dietary fat burning mode.

    And btw, telling someone to "read the book" over and over isn't much help. Sisson's book came after his blog, remember. Just because someone came upon this free blog and forum and took an interest in the nutrition information doesn't mean they're mandated to pay $13 and "read the book" before they're allowed to ask any questions of other primal eaters.

    Yes eating primal is a great way to lose fat. I've done it and so have many others.

    My approach was to eat a good serve of protein at each meal, few carbohydrates, and some fat to kickstart the fat burning process but not so much as to meet all my calorie needs. What this looked like was mainly meat, eggs and green veges, a few olives and some nuts.

    This caused my body to burn my stored fat and I would do the same again if I decided to drop a few more pounds.

    You. I like you. Stay around.

    That said, having been here a year or two, I think the 'read the book' advice is based on the fact that many new forum members (not the OP or yourself necessarily) come to the forums, read the different posts/tweaks/opinions, and get very confused on what the PBP really is. If one were to confine oneself to reading Mark's blog and the 'start here' or 'primal 101' information they would have an informed opinion, yet too often the new poster jumps right into 'eat only blah for blah time' posts, which are tweaks or hacks people are experimenting with (n=1 if you will) and crash and burn thinking primal is a failure, even though they have never actually tried primal or even understand what it is.

    Given this happens several times a week, older/more experienced primal folk push reading the book. $13 is a small price to pay for good health

    Welcome to the forums. Nice to have ya.

    It's not really difficult to understand. Your body uses the food you eat for its daily needs. If you eat any foods (protein, carbs, fats) above the body's needs, the excess is stored as body fat.

    To maintain your weight (neither gain nor lose), you need to eat to the amount your body requires (different for different people; you have to find that level).

    If you want to lose weight, you need to eat to a caloric deficit. It's only when it doesn't get enough food for its needs that the body automatically taps into its fat stores to supply its needs.
