    You lost me at "normal diet".

    Good luck to you.

    May I suggest wearing vibrams?

    mmsantos,

    Thank you for articulating your story in a peaceful and non argumentative way. Of course there is no "one size fits all" for health. I think many of us recognize this. I am happy that you have found what is working best for your body. More power to you, bro.
    The process is simple: Free your mind, and your ass will follow.

    I think this is the key to failure:
    as soon as I started flirting with the idea of getting super lean

    Have you heard of the Minnesota Starving Man project? Check it out on wikipedia if you'd like. A very large percentage of them developed eating disorders and binge disorders. Calorie restriction can be a bitch.

    Just an idea about the root of the binging issue - I'm not ready to jump off this bandwagon yet, so I'll still defend it

    I think that -- long term -- you'll be well served to dig into the emotional eating/obsessive side of things. Why? Because it's going to crop up in other areas of your life. It will show up in your work life, your relationships, hobbies and interests, etc.

    So, you know, diet aside, going forward and working through these patterns is going to make a big difference in your life.

    I am sorry you have issues, and hope you can work it out.
    But you know PB doesn't have to be low calorie or low carb?
    Did you try to increase both?

    And that's why I'm here eating HFLC Primal/Paleo.

    I believe most healthy young insulin sensitive people would only experience adverse effect going lower carb high fat. Others don't react positive to certain restrictions and it does them more harm than good. I developed weird food obsessions and cravings when I went low carb. Find an eating pattern that works for you because anyone struggling with a woe that leaves them unsatisfied isn't going to last.

    Enough with the pleasantries. Going off your own story it sounds like you failed in ever making the transition to primal/paleo so having never really experienced it how do you know it is not right for you. Sounds like a lot of excuses to me. I'm sorry but that is just how this came across to me.
