That middle layer.. the Healthy Fats layer, that doesn't need to be there. That's what's throwing you off, but it can be deleted.
- Animal fats, coconut oil, coconut products are already accounted for in the bottom tier.
- Butter (high fat dairy), Avocado's and olives (fruit) and macadamia's (nuts) are already accounted for in the tier above.
- Olive oil is the only item in that tier which is not already accounted for elsewhere. So I say, olive oil, being a fruit oil be included in the fruit tier
So.. isn't the following okay in order from least to most??

I don't believe there is one correct way of eating for everybody, and I don't believe there is one correct way of eating for a person through every stage of their life
Very interested read Choco! Thanks for posting. I must admit though, a once a week 24 fast STILL feels good, but maybe it should be a once a month type deal, kind of at the end of a training cycle, or to start a rest week or something.
I do feel as though my libido isn't quite as high as when I having all kinds of carbs. Also (clearly) not nearly as full or powerful aesthetics/ strength wise. Tried the 500 grams of carbs but it was way to much. Gonna lower to ~350 and lower it increase from there.
Honestly, I was really ( no REALLY) scared and worried about chronically elevated insulin (so a high glucose diet) but in healthy active people.. I think its bullshit to restrict carb intake. Athletes need rocket fuel. Glycogen = rocket fuel.
Just curious choco, whats your take on leangains? Is fasting any of sort beneficial?
Is 8-9 hours of sleep enough of a fast? 12? 14?
"Mark Sisson's core concept of The Primal Blueprint is a sound one - eat real, fresh, nutritious whole foods, avoid processed, low-nutrient/high anti-nutrient foods. But then he has to go and muddy the waters with groundless bullshit to create a unique product that he can trademark as his own and sell. On one hand he advocates whole foods, but on the other he advocates added fats. He has this ridiculous and groundless "Carbohydrate Curve" that completely undermines the consumption of real food - you can eat all the meat and eggs you want, but you have to count your fruits. It's a cardinal sin to add a 16 calorie packet of white sugar to your coffee, but it's okay to emulsify half a stick of butter in it."
The entire paragraph is referring to Sisson's approach, but yet you now want to claim that your ridiculous straw man in last sentence isn't referring to that also? Please. At least have the balls to own your statements.
It's funny the fury in those like J stanton attack those that call out some of the "paleo" woo science.
It must suck having your whole identity tied into a community that has almost as much misinformation and junk science as the raw fruitarian crowd
yeah you are

Or like me, inability to digest starches aside, you could feel amazing eating high-fat, moderate-protein to high-protein and very low carb with occasional refeeds. Tons of fish, bacon and avocadoes, drowning in rendered fats. Focus on occasionally ingesting liver, and shellfish, cooked greens and lots of herbs so you aren't deficient in anything. Use green tea, ginger and black pepper, etc., for thermogenesis. Do it, while maintaining a healthy body fat percentage and feeling great. just to piss off the "fat is bad" crowd. I love it. Did it for three years!

Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.
