    Chapter 16: They recommend 450g of plain starch such as potato, 450g of fruit and "sugary" vegetable like carrots, and 340g of protein. That seems like loads more carbohydrate than PB!

    Am I missing something? I'd love to hear from more people who've tried this; the book makes lots of scientific sense to me, it just rubs against what only recently discovered reading the PB.

    The book is a much better read than the blog, although I guess what I want from it is the technical 'you should eat this because of that'.

    I found the book to be excellent and it's essentially the diet 'bible' i follow.
    Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

    Those are whole food weights which are mostly water.
    On a 2000 kcal day it shakes out to 50~100g protein and 50~150g carbohydrate.

    Thanks!

    I suppose you're right cause I'm an ectomorph. And you know that ectomorph are often under adrenal stress (maybe they are ectomorph by that, qho can know?), in fact I found that:

    I think this is me as well...
