    Heh, yes THE RING! Invest in a very heavy and visible golden ring, to attract al those femme fatals that want to rob the husband from somebody! Personally I don’t need to use that tool though, and it still happens that 18 -20 year old girls give me their cell number, as happened with the girl working in the paper shop that started flirting with me a few days ago when I bought some stuff for my office! She even seemed to believe my blatant "innocent" lie when I told her that I was 33 years of age...

    Interesting. They say that it's easier to learn a language before age 14, as learning becomes more difficult then. This definitely has to apply to finess. Read up on myelin, really cool stuff.

    Growing up I mostly played soccer, didn't work on strength building via lifting until around 16-17, which now seems kinda late. I was always "fit" enough to do push ups and pull ups though, so I wouldn't say I was weak before that either. Still, I put a cool 30lbs after high school cus I stopped playing soccer... (and started smoking pot...)
    I used to seriously post here, now I prefer to troll.

    This is soooo far out of context....

    This is an acute reaction to increased FFA. Not a chronic lack of carbs. You go through this same insulin resistance Choco every morning when you wake up. Eat enough carbs and this resistance goes away because of the increase in insulin. Again it is acute resistance not chronic.

    Lyle has an article on this as well. He needs too to defend his ketosis diet.

    You people make my head hurt.

    Davidil, what kind of workouts are you doing?

    I say 3 days a week of weight lifting (if done right) is all you need.

    I know how to get results from only two days a week. Modifying volume and intensity is what matters. Dietary control helps dial in results.

    if you eat salad you are eating carbs.
    Why are you worried about carbs eat primal and enjoy.
    Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.
    PS
    Don't forget to play!

    It's not out of context at all. Give a low carber a carb-heavy meal out of nowhere. They usually get tired and complain about bloating and water retention. I don't have these issues. I've been eating yogurt and fruit for meals - near zero fat and 100+ carbohydrates in a sitting. If anything they make me feel better, more alert and less foggy than a more typical eggs-and-bacon breakfast.

    Again, I never said it was a serious health concern. I'm merely pointing out that a low carbohydrate diet is a disadvantage versus a balanced approach. A mixed diet where fat, protein and carbohydrate are all included in ample supply is going to steamroll a restrictive diet in the overwhelming majority of cases.
    Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.

    That is an acute response. Also, so what. There are a hundred people on this forum who will respond that the opposite is true a d steak and eggs make them feel less foggy.

    What do you mean disadvantage? I didn't know it was a contest.

    Most of the "bloating" complaints also include mention of eating foods they knew they were intolerant to. You avoid those foods. So it's a different situation.

    The fact that you are able to consume a zero fat diet that is purely carbs has no bearing on what other people can tolerate or enjoy.

    I'm still not seeing how any of your n=1 can be applied to anyone but you with any reliability to make the judgment about others.

    FWIW, I have experimented with some of choco's claims, and have adopted a lot of things into my own. I've been much better off since.
