What is the difference between LCHF and LC Primal?

Here is the Youtube link (quite long, I wonder if you will be able to finish it):

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FSeSTq-N4U4&feature=context-vrec

Here is the website:

http://www.dietdoctor.com/lchf

The guy advocates high fat (cream, cheese), meat, eggs, fish but no fruit.

It does make a lot of sense BUT... he is against fruit, root vegetables, sweet potatoes, etc.

Not sure what to think.

Is he more Primal or more Atkins? Sounds very Atkins to me. I could be wrong though.

Many people with food addictions or who are emotional eaters do very well on this "Paleo Atkins" because it is more highly structured than other paleo types. So if you need some structure to help you stay on track, you can really benefit from this approach.

Thanks for your answer, and two more questions for you 1. Do you drink cream and have cheese? 2. What difference does this kind of diet make for you personally? Why do you like it?

Dr Eenfeldt was a presenter at AHS 2011 and it was one of the best presentations I saw. "The guy" is most definitely a part of our community. LC paleo/primal/whatever is going to be low/no fruit/sweet potato so his diet recommendations fit right in with that. I'm LC paleo and have been for years and I eat exactly as Andreas prescribes. Paleo Atkins exactly and not ashamed to say so. I am against fruit and sweet potatoes,etc for ME. There are many paleo/primal eaters who feel the same way. Usually the really fat ones who are trying not to be so. This is an accepted and acceptable way of eating within the paleo template. I think more people who seek weight loss of a significant amount would be wise to listen to what Dr. Eenfeldt has to say.

Eat food, not macronutrients.

Dr Andreas Eenfeldt has also written a book - only in Swedish and Norwegian yet I think - and his area of interest is curing obesity as a start and primal diet after that, so the bias against fruit and root vegetables makes sense in that context. A good website with a lot of followers and a big diet movement in Sweden.
