Okay so aside from the flood of answers I'll get about how carbs cause insulin issues and diabetes, and how fat is the most metabolically benign macronutrient, AND how I should stop obsessing over macro ratios... what do you think?... (more)

Just speaking for myself, when I eat carbs above about 125-150g per day it's like a switch to turn on the weight gain. Doesn't really matter if I'm exercising or not, it just starts to pack the weight around my waist. Recently I was working... (more)

Hey everyone, So I have a bunch of red quinoa, I wash it two or three times before cooking it. I am an endurance athlete and I strength train so I eat a ton of carbs (quinoa, tubers, white rice). However, for whatever reason no matter how... (more)

If you want to eat them but retain their normal appearance, I would suggest soaking them overnight. I don't think chewing is the issue, their cooked consistency & size makes chewing less than effective. (kinda like chia seed, they're... (more)

Is it normal to shoot for 150-200 g of fruit/veggie carbs or even more when trying to gain weight? Or does this seem excessive to anyone? FYI I feel fantastic but am not gaining weight as I still fall short on general calories most days. I don't... (more)

Well 150g to 200g of carbohydrate in actually given as a general dietary recommendation by the Jaminet's (http://www.perfecthealthdiet.com). In terms of gaining weight it really is about increasing those calories. I like how Nate Green... (more)

Is there research on the cardiovascular risk for someone on a grain-free paleo diet who eats a relativity high starch carb diet along with a high animal saturated fat intake? Perhaps anthropological studies?

Let's suppose you're coming from a lower meal frequency to a higher meal frequency. The reason is, you want to bulk and gain weight. So you decide to have something like 4-5 meals a day instead of your usual 2-3. Suppose you set it at: 8AM -... (more)

I did exactly this change from 2 meals per day to 4-5 meals per day while on a highish carb paleo. I was taking about 200-250 grams of carb per day. I was also concerned while doing it that I would have a difficult time eating less frequently... (more)

Do you feel hungrier or more satiated on a high carb paleo diet? I'm on a medium carb somewhat eating potatoes, taro, sweet potatoes and cassava.

I've never heard that BCAA's limit fat burning. The articles I have seen indicate the opposite. The theory they came up with is that the body senses the extra amino acids, thinks that there's excessive muscle breakdown, so switches to burning... (more)

Again, I think that it's best to go with what you're comfortable with. I think many people probably could do with more (safe) carbs than they think, provided fructose is low. I think for people with serious metabolic issues of course should go... (more)

I'm an endurance athlete focusing on 100+ mile and 24 hr races. So I end up biking up to 20 hrs per week. As a result, my carb intake needs to be pretty high - typically 300+ g per day on the average. Believe it or not, this is considered low... (more)
