If everyone ate the paleo diet, there wouldn’t be enough food source to support 7 billion people. Not sure if here in the states we could feed our own without running out of room. On second thought, there are more pets in this country than people. Cats alone, over 100 million. Here kitty, kitty, kitty........I'm kidding!

It's bogus. Also, 250 kcal/day, or even 250 g/day, of carbohydrate is not high carb, though it isn't ultra low carb either.

Just to let you know, potatoes and sweet potatoes are not really paleo; they don't have the gluten of bread but they have the same concentrated dose of starch, and they're agricultural crops that were domesticated about the same time as grains.
If you want carbohydrates, the best thing to do is to add whole fruit to your diet.

Day 3FOOD JOURNALBreakfast - 3 eggy crepes. 3 eggs, almond flour, arrowroot powder, cinnamon. DELISH. ---Lunch - prawn salad (leftovers from day 2 dinner)---Dinner - salmon with lime and coriander. Sugar snap peas and baby potatoes with ginger, garlic and pepper. I had some cravings today. Mostly fizzy juice. This started very early in the morning though. This must be the last remnants of all that sweetener and "fake sugars" leaving my system. 3 days in and I miss the Pepsi max etc the most. Water is obviously good but can get boring after a whole. I felt more hungry then normal just before my meals today. The baby potatoes helped curb any cravings.

I was reading this http://180degreehealth.com/starch-lowers-insulin/
and all I could do was think it was complete garbage. The author did not cite anything, he made broad statements attacking the carbs=higher insulin statements with no proof or link to data to prove it, and also made broad claims that insulin does not cause weight gain again not citing or pointing to any source whatsoever to prove his statements. Am I missing anything? Is this just a bogus slam piece?

Many thanks Meljane. Good luck to us both!
Breakfast - 2 apple and leek sausage square patties fried in ghee.
Lunch - leftover mulligatawny soup (using bone broth) and 2 boiled eggs with a dash of sea salt and pepper.
Dinner - prawns in paleo mayonnaise with huge salad (tomatoes, spring onions, lettuce, celery etc etc)
I still feel fine today. No signs of the dreaded carb flu. I was a bit weak and shaky around 4pm but I had just had coffee beforehand.
I've noticed that my short (but hardly acted upon) temper was nowhere to be seen today. Usually I can feel the red mist descend over trivial things, but not today. This suggests that the nasty carbs induced mood swings? I'll keep a mental note of my temper!

Thanks Warren Dee.
I am 6 foot 2. I know that I am particularly heavy. Some of that is down to my height, and some of it is down to my muscle weight training. I recently completed a 12 week push-up program and my chest exploded 3 inches!
I know that muscle and height is only a portion of my weight though. My absolutely ideal goal is 220 lbs which would be perfect for my height and muscular build. This while 30 challenge should hopefully be a major stepping stone in getting there.

Unclebricka - sounds like a good start. Keep it up!
Out of curiosity, how tall are you, if you're willing to say?
