I guess it depends what your goal is. Ideally you want to count your proteins in grams (IMO), carbs and fats are just a see-saw so it really doesn't matter as far as weight in grams go, unless you're trying to maintain something like ketosis. (more)

Hey guys, I've tried to look up some other threads and I still couldn't find an answer to my question. When you're eating towards your protein intake for lean body mass do you count the protein from fat and vegetables? For example, my lean body... (more)

How do you guys do it? Some people here count their calories and macros religiously. Other people here think those people are batshit-crazy. After using a down-to-the-calorie type counter for about 5 years, I stopped using it about two years ago,... (more)

I can already tell that I'm going to get several perspectives on this, but I want to take them all into account. Specifically, I can't consume carbs (including any fruit, sweet potatoes, potatoes, etc) because I was recently diagnosed with... (more)

A direct answer to your question is difficult to provide because it would understate how complicated the human metabolic process is. This is something of a Doctor Oz question, and we don't earn money pushing supplements to housewives here on... (more)

How does this macronutirent ratio sound? It's moderate carb, moderate fat and lower/adequate protein.

borofergie 0 · October 08, 2012 at 8:38 AM

Depends on what the context of your diet is, if you can handle it and feel healthy than why not? However, on a 2500kcal a day diet, 40% carb is 250g, on 3000kcal a day it's 300g. That to me seems like an awful lot of carbohydrate if you aren't... (more)

I like this. From now on I think I'll start referring to body fat as adipose tissue. Y'know, because wearing toe shoes and telling people saturated fat is healthy doesn't make me seem weird enough.

Hypothetically speaking, which of the three macronutrients fats/proteins/carbs could singularly sustain you for the rest of your life if at all? And why?

For those of you who are eating a moderate amount of carbs, say 100g+ daily, where are you getting them from? Do you stick to 100 percent paleo sources like tubers and squash? Or do you eat some non-gluten grains like rice or corn? What about... (more)

Art De Vany talks a lot about power laws. I think this is a really important concept, at least for the field that I'm more or less qualified for (physical therapy and musculoskeletal health and exercise). My question is about power law variation... (more)

First, I don't think De Vany intends the power law idea to apply in all instances - e.g., you should avoid the stochastic consumption of paint chips and battery acid. Since we belive that we are not well-evolved to consume most processed carbs,... (more)

I am trying to adapt to a Paleo diet--and having trouble. I know it should be simple but I have a lot of "food issues" and nothing with food is simple for me. I don't WANT to count anything (calories, nutrients, etc.) but I think to get started I... (more)

For carbs, go as low as you can while still being able to function and have good workouts. The reason for this is that many people lose fat much quicker by having insulin levels as low as possible. But everyone is different, some people function... (more)

Does anybody here vastly differ their macronutrient ratios roughly in conjunction with seasonal availability - that is, gorge on fruit as a staple during the summer, and then switch over to savory, fatty, protein-filled meals in the winter? Do... (more)

I definitely believe that we are seasonal creatures and that changes in our environment and available diet stimulate many natural hormonal/epigenetic/etc changes in us that we don't yet fully understand. That said, I consider it a pretty safe bet... (more)

What matters most for FAT loss is the hormonal environment that you set up, which is dictated by your macro nutrient ratios, your macro nutrient and calorie timing, your food composition, your workout regimen, your total calories, your rest, your... (more)

Only because you used that word so many times, paleo isn't some capital-P Protocol. In fact, it's not exclusive of lean gains either - you'll find many people here that do both. LG is more about macronutrients, workouts, and eating windows; paleo... (more)
