OK should apologize for that. I just really don't like the use of the term CICO in any context. Yes, we all know that the "CO" part of CICO is really darn complex, and CICO is sorta true, mainly because CO is really complex.
But to the SAD community, CICO is the philosophy with a very clear and simple meaning. It's also the philosophy that makes people fat and sick and frustrated, like Kelly Korg. I'm just hoping there's some other name out there for all the n=1's so we can avoid using CICO. I like the "fat grams in minus fat grams out for people who are already fat-adapted." But you can't fit that on a bumper sticker. Maybe "Primal with extra carbs" or something like that.
5'0" female, 44 years old. Started Primal October 31, 2011, at a skinny fat 111.5 lbs. Low weight: 99.5 lb on a fast. Gained back to 111 on sugar cheat. Currently fighting off sugar/candy cravings with bulletproof cocoa and a little rice.
I (try to) follow by-the-book primal as advocated by Mark Sisson, except for whey powder and a bit of cream. I advocate a two-month strict adjustment for newbies. But everybody is different and should tweak Primal to their own needs.
