    and how would I know which fruits are lower in sugar? is there a threshold? I never eat more than one a day anyway... but are say bananana or grapes off limits? I can't seem to find any practical info in the book...

    OP, very low carb eating is an excellent starting point. However, IMO after a while it's good to experiment with different starchy foods and fruit. There is no one size fits all approach when it comes to macronutrient ratios and calories too. If you feel good at below 50g carbs you find that diet ("diet" used as a noun) sustainable and your weight and body composition are where you want them to be, then by all means keep it very low-carb. Many people seem to be successful with it.

    I didn't read the original PB cover to cover since a lot of info there is redundant to the website. I read Chapter 8 - A Primal Approach to Weight Loss more closely. The 21 Day Transformation is an action plan with a 21 day challenge at the end. It looks like it has more specific information about food and exercise. The original PB is more theoretical.
