I tend to be more of a lurker than a poster, but I think it's important to share that I didn't have a good experience with Chris Kresser, either. The other reviews here touch on all the same problems I had: he is very expensive, 'prescribes'... (more)

Rice or potatoes… covered with butter or olive oil (literally tablespoons, not teaspoons as you have logged above). Nutrient density is great and all, but calories are king when activity levels are high.

Satiety is an individual thing. Some people are sated best by carbs and fiber. Others by fat. Others by protein.  It sounds like they added fat to carbs and expected that to be sating. That's not how it works, fat + carbs is a well known... (more)

I've heard that starches can cause or contribute to leaky gut. I have celiac and I'm doing strict paleo to help with healing. Should I avoid sweet potatoes and squashes and such?
