No expert on metabolic typing but from what I understand if you're a slow oxidizer (carbohydrate type) this basically means you'd be better off with small meals more often. If this is really your type, your appetite should be a good guide.... (more)

If you're seeing benefits from eating beans I say eat em, who cares if they're paleo or not. Tubers and root vegetables are probably a better source of carbs, but that doesn't mean you should shun beans if they work for you.

As long as protein meets requirements then I don't think macronutrients matter much; I think VLC or VLF aren't the best way to go. Myself, I eat around 60% fat, 20% carbs and 20% protein but it can vary.
