    Often more than 300g. Depends on the day.

    Yes, from whole food sources. Current favourite (a side to my meat or as a dessert) is sweet potatoes covered in honey and cinnamon.

    Paging Capt. Carbohydrate. Or was it Sgt. Sugar?
    The above should be viewed as complete and utter nonsense.

    That's right.

    200-300g/day and lose weight on that range even with insulin resistance and estrogen dominance. I eat fruit, rice, potatoes, nixtamalized corn, millet, tapioca, chocolate, sugar, honey, ice cream, juice, and all things PHD and Peat. Fat breakdown: I aim for 50% or more saturated, 25% or greater MUFA, 25% or less PUFA. Just throwing that out there.

    Just do what canio6 suggests and you'll be fine.

    Oh, I'm in the 150 - 300gs, for sure. I eat loads of fruit and rice, and only have meat once a day.

This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

    In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

    Honestly, I was being a bit snarky but it seems to me that far too often people worry and obsess so much over the 3 macros that they overload on the 4th macro - stress - and f*ck everything up.
    somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug

    I totally agree.

    But your post was funny - I wanted to retort but I couldn't better it

    some days I eat ZC, other times I can eat around 200g/day (if I'm having rice and/or potatoes and/or a lot of fruit for some reason, these are estimated numbers) so I think I probably average about 50g/day.

    I have tried cycling it around lifts, but I much prefer this more natural approach. I don't enjoy planning food ahead too much in this way ie: I like to always have good food to cook, but I don't like thinking "I need to eat potatoes because I'm lifting today" if that day I don't feel like eating potatoes, I don't force myself to. I also train almost daily so to me everyday is some sort of lifting day. I want to up my carbs after a month of strict grain-free eating (I'm on day 4...) because I have some bloating and straight up fat to get rid of. I think VLC is necessary for me right now and when I get leaner I'll introduce more carbs I think.
    I used to seriously post here, now I prefer to troll.

    I mostly stay under 150 but sometimes I go over but usually its just shy of 100. I did an n=1 experiment where I allowed myself to eat all the fruit and sweet potatoes I wanted and I found that I just like them too much; I over ate them- I gained weight. I can't "free feed" fruit and potatoes and intuitively maintain my weight like some people luckily seem to be able to do. I have to cap it at like 3 servings total a day or I keep eating them.

    Because I am new to the primal lifestyle, I have been keeping track of my carbs. I usually stay under 100 grams but have had a couple of days over by less than 10 grams. My highest weight was 198lbs on a small framed 5'8" male. In the past 3 weeks of primal living, I have lost 12 lbs. Prior to that, it took me 3 months to lose 12lbs, exercising daily (CW). I am a believer in staying under 100 grams. I hope to start a journal soon with pictures.
