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, 43 years old. Started Primal October 31, 2011, at a skinny fat 111.5 lbs. Low weight: 99.5 lb on a fast. Current weight: skinny-fat 106 lbs. Resetting with the 21-day challenge.
MY PRIMAL: I (try to) follow by-the-book primal as advocated by Mark Sisson, except for whey powder and a bit of cream. I aim for 80-90 g carb/day and advocate a two-month strict adjustment for newbies. But everybody is different and other need to tweak Primal to their own needs.
