    Not qualified to answer this question, but I can take a guess, I guess

    Protein doesn't cause as much fluctuation in blood sugar. Even if protein is converted to glucose via gluconeogenesis, this process takes some time, therefore there is not a huge rise and fall of blood sugar. However, I believe some type 1 diabetics do take insulin along with protein at times (someone please correct me if I'm wrong).

    Again, someone smarter and more experienced than myself will give you a better answer, but that's what I got.

Consuming large amounts of PUFA and sustaining vitamin and mineral deficiencies impairs our primary metabolic functions. Making our own glucose requires large amounts of cortisol to break down amino acids. What you are proposing is for your body to limp along on a backup metabolism while having chronically elevated cortisol due to a constant catabolic state. Simply avoiding glucose avoids the main problem of metabolic syndrome, but now you're opening up entire new cans of worms. The real solution is to lower PUFA, become vitamin and mineral replete and slowly cycle in glucose until you can tolerate it again. It may take months or years of trial and error to repair the decades of damage you've done to your body, but it is the real solution.
    Glucagon mate, glucagon starts the glucose manufacturing process in the liver a few hours after the last carb meal (the limp mode your talking about is the last step of gluconeogenesis days after your last carb meal). When our obese westerners reach the stage when glucagon is starting to ramp up they go and eat again, stopping the glucagon process. Basically after insulin has dropped a few hours after your last carb meal, you can do one of 2 things:

    1 Add glucose by mouth, this raises blood sugar, and also raises insulin again, which repeats the cycle.

    2 Let your glucagon take over, (give insulin a rest) let it convert hepatic glycogen into glucose, and also raise the amount of fatty acid oxidation for your muscles to use instead of glucose oxidation.

    Most people whom have heathy running bodies do (unknowingly) variations of both methods. ALOT of obese westerners never get to the stage of significant glucagon production, they get carbs (method 1) down their gullets before this happens. This leads them to cycling insulin all day, chronically stressing their pancreas making one hormone and not the other (probably a factor in metabolic disorder), changing the quality of carbs is not going to get these guys to upregulate glucogon significantly.

    What I am proposing is that the body learns to operate under glucagon conditions quickly over the first few weeks of low carb. Once our bodies get used to glucagon (it don't take long) carbs can be reintroduced, free from addiction as our body is now used to operating under glucagon conditions.

    What your proposing will get people healthy (low PUFA's, mineral balance) i'm not disputing that, just that it takes far longer for these people to function good under low blood glucose conditions (ie learn to rebalance BS themself) than if you go LC for a month. After a 2-4 weeks of LC they will have a much better chance of sticking with your protocol, than transitioning into your method straight from SAD.

    yeah I was debating about a generalized approach to doing primal from people landing straight in from SAD diets. People with metabolic conditions like you mentioned need individualistic help, wich would be wrong to make broad reaching starting protocols for. My suggestioin was that people do a month of low carb to get rid of their habit of re balancing blood sugar by consuming carbs exogeniously, before they embarked on taking Choco's advice. He automatically assumed i was demonising carbs as a macro and disputing metabolic conditions brought about from low carb, he thought I was an avid taubes follower (maybe that was jj) and was a LC nut, he was wrong on all accounts.

    Most of the people whom are overweight in my view, just can't be arsed living with glucagon flowing in their veins, they'd rather just raise blood glucose by mouth. Now If they did this for many years they'd probably reach a stage where; we can fire up a debate about the damage it might cause to their metabolism, but i'm not gunna go there because it will just decend into a nitpicking fight.

    I didn't accuse you of being an avid Taubes follower (on purpose, at least).

    I'm actually enjoying reading this debate between you and Choco. Sometimes a little disagreement is good for the soul

    Ok sorry my bad,

    Yeah people on this forum don't know what box to put me in. All the VLCers and keto dieters put me in the carb lovers box because I warn against all the damage doing prolonged LC can do. All the carb lovers put me in the VLC and keto box because I warn that carbs can be more addictive than other foods and are the crutch of obesity.

    People just don't get the middle ground. It's the human, not the macro

    they do mate, carbs have more impact though , the protein rise is slower but still there. type ones learn the foods that cause the most problems early on and carbs are the foods that require insulin adjustment generally. also protein is usually a part of a meal containing carbs for most people
    When I'd had enough of the grain and starched based 'diabetic eating for health' diet (eating for health, my ass!) my weight was 242.5 lbs. On starting primal- 18th April 2013 weight : 238.1.
    27th July 2013. weight after 100 days 136.9 weight lost 101.2lb ; that's 105.6lbs since I stopped the 'diabetic eating for health'

    My carb addiction was so bad I ate pure sugar and starch. Not Doritos but fat-free fruit candy. Not fried chicken but cous-cous with tuna. I ate every few minutes. I ate 3 king-sized bags of candy a day. I liked gummy bears and reeses pieces best. I ate grape nuts with dried fruit and powdered milk, and trail mix bars, the kind that are basically oats glued together with sugar. I fucked myself up so royally that a healthy regular low-fat, low calorie diet with vegetables and stuff like that could not sustain me at all. I'd always find myself with my face in some horribly sweet thing. I had to go low carb high fat to fix me. Now I'm fixed and can eat the carbs (although I don't eat quite so much now) without the horrible feeling I had before and I can go hours and hours without eating now.
