I know there are a bunch of you out there who are up on the starches, but has anyone taken that a step further? Are there any paleos out there doing a high carb, low fat, low protein diet? Interested to hear from people who are eating in the 60-90% carb range... How is it going? How are you feeling? How does it compare? Anyone using it to lean out? Build muscle?
I had dalliances with fruitarianism in the past and ran into trouble there, but I've been wondering if a modified take on that approach which is carb-centric with some animal fats/proteins could be an alternative strategy for weight-loss/health. I've been experimenting with starches and fruit for the past few months with very mixed results, disconcertingly, some of the better results I've had increasing carb intake have been while keeping fat intake pretty low, around the 10-20% range.
I fixed a lot of issues I had post-fruitarianism with a high fat, low carb diet, so I'm nervous to cut down on the animal fat. But I've been coming around to the idea that unlike what I thought previously, which is that I got better mainly because of reducing carbs, it might have been down to the fact that I introduced nutrient dense foods like grass fed butter, offal, and shellfish. Is it possible that a more ideal route to low carb is high carb plus nutrient dense animal fat/protein?
