    Peat "Fat loss" Failures?

    Shop Now
    I was reading online, and many people gained weight (body fat) doing peat-style eating. Wondering if anybody here has experienced the same? Having body fat is normal and healthy, don't get me wrong. Some people around here are almost skeletal and still trying to lose - bone? - weight. So weight gain would be good for many people. But has anybody experienced this? Weight gain on Peat? And what were you actually eating?

    I have not seen anyone here on Peat lose weight, they talk a game but nothing more. Any pro peat that has posted a pic just looks like a teletubby.

    Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

    Aw, thanks Canio! We would have done better dances, that's for sure

This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

    In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

    Yeah, I have read of people gaining on Peat. They eat things like a pint of Haagen-Dazs a day on top of fruit, quarts of juice, hamburger, coconut oil, eggs, milk, cheese, potatoes, white rice, butter, mexican coke, and crab legs. It's really a no brainer. Peat isn't a sugar and fruit and saturated fat free-for-all; you have to apply common sense. Like its the 90s we thought a low-fat diet meant eat the whole box of SnackWells because they're fat free! Or like when people think primal means you can eat a stick of butter in your coffee along with 6 eggs and an avocado for breakfast, 16 oz. ribeye steak and brussels sprouts with 3 tbsp butter for lunch, and a jar of macadamia nuts because they're all primal-approved and because you're within the carb curve walls, calories don't matter.

    It doesn't matter what protocol you follow if you're reckless about it. Weight gain is inevitable if you overeat for your burn rate.

    Oh, I'll never give up my weight loss and strength and clear skin for the excuse that I think guzzling orange juice and milk is healthy. It is obvious most Peat followers just spew unscientific rhetoric in unison to back up their candy habits. I would never make a mockery of myself that way. I'm already happy being a mockery as a mythical caveman dieter. No need to switch cards now!

    Man, I almost took the bait.

    I will say, I've never been a fan of candy! Much more of a chocolate person, myself.

    Peat "Fat loss" Failures?

    I mean, if you go high carb and still eat a ton of fat... Then yeah, you're gonna gain weight.

    Otherwise, I used to fear carbs because I gained weight (3 years ago) with a mostly high carb "healthy" diet which I thought was low in fat... Then realized I still ate a ton of fat back then with all the almond milk, coconut milk, etc. I also probably ate too much because oatmeal makes me hungrier.

    Now my weight stays the same or decreases whether I eat high or low carb because I realized I need to cut fat way way way down on high carb days. The only fat I have on carb days comes from coconut (light coconut milk which is half coconut water half milk, and 1-2 tsp coconut oil). I eat a decent amount of protein via egg white/whey/gelatin/occasionally lean meat or liver.

    I don't eat candy though. Or milk. I eat fruits and juice for carbs. (I would have milk if I figure out a way I don't break out and I don't have digestion problems )

    I've never had clearer skin on a Peat way of eating. Two years of Paleo and sugar detoxes with countless supplements that made zero difference. I still can't believe that the polar opposite of what I've learnt and implemented for the past few years (4 years without dairy) has finally helped me. Scientific? No, absolutely not, but since when did textbook information equate to real life results? On paper, I should probably be obese with crazy mental behaviour but the truth is, my life is finally starting to balance out and Im so happy. I'm even more open minded about food, people and life. I need no reason to backup eating Haribo now and then, I don't see myself owing anyone an explanation for loosening up in life.
