Week two of self-regulating low carb paleo and it’s all pretty free and easy. Less carb seems to directly correlate to less hunger, and I can’t say I’m craving anything. More fun than Zoning for sure, even when eyeballing it.

The other side of this is that there’s a bunch of interesting reading that goes along with it:

The cohorts in Dr BG’s examples are comparatively small, but their responses to the TYP program are impressive (although the organisation’s site and the fact that it’s an LLC are a little creepy, but it’s difficult for me to know if that’s just par for the course in the American medical landscape). Regardless, she’s a hell of a lot of fun to read and Cordain et al’s by-the-numbers reviews in the context of an evolution-informed unified theory [PDF] add a lot of credibility to the excitement.
