Forgive me if this is a repost but I've searched to make sure it's not been asked before.

Nate Miyaki is great. What his philosophy is, is that if you're obese and sedentary, than a paleo diet with fruits and nonstarchy vegetables should be your template. But, if you're fit and active, than a "Chinese Rice Farmer" should be your template- fish, lean meats, eggs in moderation, vegetables, fruit, and safe starches (rice, potatoes, and sweet potatoes are his... oats if you have zero gluten issues).

I thin Miyaki is spot on in his nutritional approach. He likes to rip on paleo too, which is another think I like :)

I like it. I agree with it, even if it descends into a bit of bro-science. Best quotes:

"We know gluten-containing wheat doesn???t for most people, as well as cereal grains high in lectins/phytates, so we kick that crap to the curb, not to fit in with being Paleo, but because it sucks balls."


"This goes against everything you???ve probably ever heard regarding an optimum fat loss protocol. But guess what? If everything you heard about in the Health & Fitness industry actually worked, there would be a lot more people walking around in shape."

good stuff. When I add a half cup or so of red potatoes, white jasmine or basmati rice to meals the night before weight training I notice improved endurance during the next morning's workout. This amount of carbs is still low enough to keep in the fat burning zone but provides me with more energy for that extra set or to work with heavier weights

I like it. Hadn't seen that website before, and it appears there's a lot of paleo-gold on it.
