Do Robb Wolf's plan and forget the Guyenet stuff. Guyenet actually has mentioned
Seth Robert's Shangri-La Diet before- he thinks the success people have on it is indicative of his food reward theory being legit. I disagree- Seth's own theory makes more sense and explains certain real world cases better. But I digress, because the theory is much less relevant than the effects.
Shangri-La diet + paleo works. Trying to integrate Guyenet's advice into a paleo diet causes something akin to clinical depression- and those white potatoes seem to be a potential culprit. Maybe Ray Peat is right about serotonin being a bad thing. I don't know, I'm just telling you it was pretty bad. Maybe if you keep the level of animal products rather high you can over come this, but you probably want to ditch the chicken in favor of beef and get more of a variety in general.
Flavor is a signal. Guyenet seems to be focusing on keeping the signal weak, but if the payload is the same over and over, the body will still get used to it. No signal (i.e. calories without warning), variable signals/variable payloads- all tends to keep the set-point low.
Processed food gives the exact same flavor profile and the exact same calorie payload every time. This is key. Don't make the mistake of using a bland diet, only to recreate this highly reliable signal to payload situation with processed foods.
