So, I haven't researched this too deeply; mostly I've just gotten the bare bones of Dr. Rosedale's theories on the matter. Basically it's the same research the CRON people are working with, except that he advocates restriction of calories not being necessary; fat, unlike carbohydrate, is a 'safe fuel'. Right?
Who here on paleohacks actually lives by it? What do you eat? How do you determine how much protein you should eat? How do you feel?
Personally, it's a confusing idea for me since I maintain a BMI of 17, with bones sticking out all over, most I've ever weighed in my life - only by a high fat, high-calorie paleo-type diet which includes, most days, over 100g of protein. I'm luckily healthy despite my weight issues, but I just can't fathom that restricting my calorie or protein intake would bring me health benefits (frankly, even if I conclude it would, I would not do it, because I'm vain and I hate being skinny and bony).
