    Not with muscle gain but with fat gain...big difference....unless you have a study that shows other wise.

    Funny how you, the troll, ignored my other posts...pathetic.

    Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

      No it doesn't.

      When my BMI increased to 34 (obese and at least 40% body fat) I showed no signs of insulin resistance. My blood glucose and blood pressure were in the ideal zone. That's because I was eating low fructose, low GI and mostly real food. The main reasons for the weight gain were giving up gluten grains (which cured my IBS), owning a car for the first time and having to cut back on exercise due to health problems.

      Lots of Greeks are obese and show no signs of insulin resistance as they eat a healthy Mediterranean diet and walk a lot. They don't binge on sugar and bread. They get fat eating too much real food, as I did.

        Couldn't give up your goodies so blamed primal for failing. I've got no problem with that, eat what you like.
        And I'll keep on letting people on here who fall into the trap of thinking that you're actually a member who's trying to help people with the primal paleo lifestyle know that you're full of shit and just trolling.

        speaking words of wisdom....

          Yes, I meant fat gain not muscle gain.

            Some of my obsessively thin friends have given themselves insulin resistance through years of low fat dieting.

            When they assume I am insulin resistant I have to set them straight.

              How do you know they are insulin resistant?

                They've told me they've been diagnosed with prediabetes. They have to eat lots of small meals otherwise their blood sugar levels crash. They are eating the CW healthy fats now like olive oil and fish oil, but they're still getting as close as they can to eliminating saturated fat from their diets and overall their diets are still low in fat given their low calorie intakes. They eat a lot of wholegrains, vegetables and chicken. They are very health conscious. They look skinny fat with relatively large waists and fat faces.

                Another slim friend who is older by about 15 years is much healthier by comparison. She mostly eats meat, fish, eggs, organic vegetables, butter and bread which she bakes herself and a bit of chocolate. She doesn't do a lot of wholegrains. She smokes, and she drinks more than the other friends. She's also very active. She has a more relaxed attitude. She isn't primal but she's not that far off now I come to think of it.

                      You can't simply demand to be heard as a scientist. There is a significant amount of investment in CW by corporations and the government and it will take years for science to overcome that.
