We are all on our own journeys. Primal can mean different things to different people. I dont know why it seems to be lumped into categories, like those High Fat people or those High carb people. And I venture to say that a "high carb" primal is NOTHING compared to SAD. My carbs are all good carbs. Nothing processed, so I feel good about what I am eating.
I feel that if we can tweak or experiment in order to find our way, kudos to us. I know some ppl say, just eat. And yes I agree, but I also have specific goals and if I can tweak the macros a little one way or the other and reach those goals quicker, then why not.
Anyways, this thread was of interest to me, because it sounded like OP was having trouble losing weight & I got the impression due to the higher fat nature of Primal. There are plenty of threads that talk about High Fat, which isn't my program at the moment, so this thread appealed to me. It took a nose dive very quickly, not sure why and it looks like those comments have since been removed, but the information provided herein is great. If something else is working for a person then great, disregard it.
