I do however agree with Omni's post in that you may have metabolic dysfunction at either end of the spectrum. That is, if you can't handle ketosis for a period of time without falling apart you very well may have some underlying issue. Same difference as the metabolic glucose dysfunction with higher carb just now its with your fat burning machinery or in context of the inability to adapt quickly to a necessary physiological shift.

I'm just annoyed when people make up numbers to support their pet theories and expect you to just accept them.
I have no doubt that an Atkins dieter who stalled could indeed switch to a different WOE or cycle. But they don't. The Atkins people haven't heard of carb refeeds, nor have dieters in general.

I dont make up numbers. I have been researching diet and following people like Mark Sisson over 8 years. I have read so much on the subject in that time its incredible.
Im not here to convince people like you who have closed their minds to other ways and apparently think they are getting good results with what they are doing... Just here to let people know that there are other opinions then the primal approved one. Surprisingly enough, many dont know this since the common advice is "Primals not working? PRIMAL HARDER!".
I don't THINK I'm getting good results, Zach. I already got them. And I'm maintaining them too.
And I've done plenty of research as well which is how I came to a primal low carb plan that works for me when NOTHING ELSE DID. You say that we have closed minds? I think your mind is closed to my and many other people's excellent results. They are results mind you, not theory, so don't dismiss them so easily.
Starting Weight: 197.5
Current Weight: 123
Spending a month feasting on meat, fat & marrow, like our ancesters would after some big kills.
Fasting for a week with nothing but water and the odd berry, green or measly tuber whilst trecking to greener pastures.
Dodging the bears to get our fair share of the fat salmon running up river.
Gorging on fruits and nuts for weeks on end in late summer, and putting on some weight in preparation for the long winter.
Meat and fat was always the preffered food, but was not always available, just like honey easy to gorge on but hard to get, so this should always be kept in mind, there should be times of plenty and times of scarcity.
Just because some foods were relegated to times of scarcity doesn't mean they weren't good for us and likewise just because we have times of plenty doesn't mean this is the healthiest way to eat all the time.
