    Basically you have to find a formula that works for you Danhaych. Eat good carbs (20 percent) no processed foods or grains, good fat (50%, coconut oil to cook with, grass fed butter, olive oil etc.), and protein (30%, fish, beef, chicken, pork, grass fed and wild caught if possible). This is more or less my formula, I don't count calories only watch carbs. I am 5'10" and weigh 175lb which is where I want to be. Some folks have different metabolisms and can eat more carbs without increasing weight. I don't, nor do I want to look like a gaunt guitarist for the sex pistols, so I watch what I eat.

    It's your choice and you will find what works for you with a little tweaking, just be healthy and happy! Peace...5x

    Sorry yes I meant grains, diet high in wholegrains, some days over 450g CHO... It was getting depressing being in the kitchen every 2 hours cooking a healthy meal of over 600 calories...

    I thought his thread was interesting, easy to get plenty of calories in but was surprised with the fat intake amount... http://www.marksdailyapple.com/forum/thread39439.html

    I know that isn't much by way of advice, but maybe someone who has done what you wish to will come along and have something more for you. Good luck!
    Thank you...

    Applying your specific situation to 5 billion people is one of the most nonsensical fallacies of all time.
    I like your last sentence. Since reading the book and studying nutrition I have been wondering, all the specialists we have in the field of nutritional science, I don't think any of them know what constitutes the "healthy diet"... Maybe there is no "one healthy diet" that fits all... I doubt all cavemen lived on the same foods so maybe some of our ancestors lived mainly primal and some adopted the agricultural version with grains etc so as the years passed the genetic lines would have adapted to each of the types of diets our ancestors were on... Maybe my genetic lines as piper said don't cope well with grains... Ill see how this diet goes with increased fat and lots of vegies... My lecturers don't like the ketone diet thing though...
