    emmie, you have it right, the real "fat burning mode" is to be in lack of food - or in a calorie deficit - that's the mode when your body burn it's own precious stored bodyfat. There is no reason for the body whatsoever to use of it's own bodyfat if there is not a very good reason for doing just that...

    I think we are missing a key piece of information here. OP's definition of lower fat.

    You may lose weight, but you'll also probably gain it back quickly. We need fat and if you're not getting enough your body will fight for it and you may end up over eating and gain the weight back. I have kept my fat really high and lost 30 lbs doing so and find it really hard to gain eating this way (easy to maintain). I used to yo-yo a lot when I'd lower fat and calories... not anymore. Lowering fat is not a good way to lose weight... lowering carbs is, though.

    If I'm eating 75% of calories from fat I am not hungry and often don't meet my basic 1600 calories. I end up only eating like 900-1200 calories. Although if I xfit more than 1 once a week I will endup on a 5kcal bender.

    Canio, understandable. I just figure the OP might be just new to PB and just feeling it out so far. I've actually been reading the blog off and on for like a year and a half, but I just started getting serious about going primal a few weeks ago, and I've had similar questions. Granted I usually just look up the answer. lol

    Thanks for the welcome.
