Is this a low carb forum? I'm quite concerned by the advice given to newbies regarding carbohydrates. Paleo, or what I prefer to call "hunter-gatherer diets" are NOT low carb... they are normally in the region of 30-40% carbs.
I'm really concerned because young people are coming on for example saying they eat 20g or 50g of carbs feeling crabby, or stalling weight loss etc and people tell them to eat more fat and these bad answers are voted up! That must mean lots of people are bloomin' carbophobes.
And what the heck is the story with fruit... one "expert" gingerly recommended "even 1 or 2 pieces is OK" Come ON people! Dr Lustig has you all mesmerized!!
Read Chris Kresser or Stephan Guyanet if you're are having a panic attack every time your are tempted by fruit. I overcame serious illness getting nearly ALL my calories from fruit and nuts and felt AMAZING, the best I had ever felt in my LIFE.
The carbophobe and fruitophobe combo is very serious imo, not funny, because kids as well as adults are getting crappy advice imo. What say you?
