I would just like to chime in that I am a young woman, and going very low carb prevented me from losing any weight. Adding 1/3 - 1/2 cup of sweet potato at every meal, plus the occasional piece of fruit has made me feel much better and get less... (more)

Things that contribute to metabolic flexibility: Healing insulin resistance if you have it. That can be done with a period of low carbohydrate (not necessarily ketogenic) dieting. Very low-level aerobic exercise such as walking, hiking, slow... (more)

Why is low-intensity exercise (walking, jogging, cycling) fueled by fat but higher intensity exercise is fueled by carbohydrates/glycogen/glucose? Everything says that less fat is burned during high intensity activity but is that an absolute or... (more)

Oxygen usage is what causes the switch. Once you cross the anaerobic threshold (out of breath, maybe 80% of maximum heart rate for most people), your body doesn't have the same saturation of oxygen (hence the reason you're out of breath trying to... (more)

I forget that I'm in a bit of a saturated fat tolerant bubble sometimes. I was chatting with someone who also has an interest in paleo but wasn't so keen on saturated fat intake (maybe only read Cordain, I don't know) mentioned this to me, and I... (more)

I would say this is a moot point - all of two essential fatty acids (ALA and LA) are going to likely be eaten alongside SFAs in nature. If they are not eaten alongside SFAs from one meal, then it's still safe to say they will be eaten with plenty... (more)

Animal studies routinely appear in the scientific literature linking dietary factors to the overall health of the organism. For example, today I found this article investigating heart disease in fruit flies. Just a couple of the red-flags I... (more)

When they are trying out what certain genes do, they often use a very simple and well understood creature like drosophila to try to tract down effects. I have yet to hear anyone try to extrapolite food health from drosophila to humans though,... (more)

People throw that phrase around all the time, "We're burning fat." And I understand much of the physiology involved, but where does the fat go after it's metabolized? Do we sweat it out? Does it pass through the urine or feces? This question... (more)

I know there's a wide range of experience of different diets, and almost as many reasons used to justify them. I also appreciate that the setting of n=1 experiments is typically as subjective as the perceived outcomes. However I'm curious about... (more)

I tried reducing my carb intake along with everyone else when low carb paleo was the way to go for fat loss and performance. I had enough energy but my moods were always stable at a very flatline mode. I never got really unhappy or really happy... (more)

A question regarding fat loss: Do you have to watch your fats and proteins as well when you want fat loss on paleo? I know carbs are important because people have a tendency of eating too much of them. But what if you have a tendency of... (more)

I am still a believer that at the end of the day, to lose weight you will need to create a caloric deficit. Determining the number of calories you need is not an exact science. Best thing to do is weight and measure yourself and adjust... (more)
