I've been trying to do the whole high fat, low carb paleo thing for a while. It never seems to work out for me. I usually feel pretty miserable. And here I am, still almost 30 pounds over weight. So, I'm trying the opposite. I'm going to restrict calories and eat high protein, moderate carb (around 100 grams), and low fat. I figure the high protein will help preserve (maybe grow) my muscles, the moderate carb will fuel all my workouts, and without fat, my body will be forced to burn my bodyfat for energy. Seems pretty simple. But, I've been reading so much about how great fat is for so long, I feel like a heretic.
I'll let you know how it turns out... Anyone else ditch the high fat diet for a low fat diet and see good results?
