So now I'm confused guys ... I thought the entire premise of LCHF was to live in a constant state of fat metabolism as opposed to carb metabolism. I haven't seen anything in Mark's or Robb Wolf's literature suggesting the mix that Choco is describing, or warning about the dangers of monosaturated fats like nuts and olive oil.
@Choco - I've also never heard about baked almond flour being toxic - citation?
It's not like a sit around pounding nuts all day; I make an almond-flour pizza maybe twice a month and snack on nuts once in a while. Closest thing I could find is that there's not much data on heated nuts: http://www.marksdailyapple.com/are-n...#axzz2QGz7DEgN
200g of glucose a day for my brain? I thought the brain required more like 120g. I definitely eat (or drink) more than 50g a day, so I doubt my brain is really lacking. (http://www.marksdailyapple.com/how-m...#axzz2QGz7DEgN).
I don't eat THAT much chicken. If you see my past 3 days, I actually had mostly beef. I do take omega-3 fish oil supplement - why wouldn't I? Helps achieve better 6:3 ratio.
Also, what are some safe starches/carbs that you eat on a daily basis?
@Finnegan - I probably am insulin resistant, but wasn't aware its such a bad thing. Any suggestions on fixing that without just eating more carbs?
