Cracking down
« on: April 22, 2011, 08:33:54 AM »
Ok, enough Paleo eating and getting fat  ;D  I switched over to a rather Paleo low-carb (Ketogenic) diet a couple of months ago.  I did it to lose weight for cycling but I had been really over-trained so I really stopped most of my training and took up walking to get my body back to a normal level.

Well Gary Taubes is wrong. You most certainly can get fat eating fat.  Having said that, I have no intention on changing the foods I am eating.  I just ordered a 1/4 cow for gods sake and I have 15 pounds of shredded coconut in my freezer too!

The point is that if you over eat you can get fat period. 

The good is that I feel healthy and strong.  I also will start training again for cycling and I am going to use the forgotten ideas of endurance training (not just intervals) to coax my body to burn more fat and less sugar.

I am going to use the information on this site to condition my body to be strong in every way that I can as well.  Starting with getting my emotions under control to get my big butt under control

Of course you can get fat eating too much fat. Calories do matter, after all. It's just that low carb diets tend to be very satiating and high-carb diets tend to not be as satiating. Check out http://carbsanity.blogspot.com/ for a very good discussion of low carb dieting from someone who thinks that most of the reasons why we think it works are wrong, but still eats way.
