    Carbs and fats

    Is it true you should avoid combining carbs and fats in the one meal?

    Load of bollux with no **real** science behind it.

    Yes - lots of saturated fats or trans fats, in combination with lots of HFCS or highly refined carbs can be a bad thing in a diet and can lead to insulin resistance and just general poor health (poor cholesterol, heart disease, fatty liver accumulation, visceral fat storage etc etc) but there is nothing wrong with having an appropriate serving of carbs (combinations of starchy/sugar and fibre) and an appropriate serving of healthy fats in the same meal (combined with protein). This is actually advantagous - it has many benefits for things such as satiety and your blood sugar/blood insulin response.

    i totally disagree. Berardi is one of the best in the business and an example of someone who promotes p/c and p/f. research and science included.

    Well... Berardi USED to talk about this (in his first 'massive eating' serious the one he put out years ago which is completely stupid in terms of calorie prescriptions)..

    But if you go and take a lot at his more 'recent' stuff (the 'updated' versions) he 'modified' this to "Remember that low GI carbs, and healthy fats are ok" after many 'less than positive comments' from other people in the business.

    all i can add is what i've seen from my own experience--for months i've been making a point to have some carbs, fats and proteins in every single meal i eat (except PWO), and i'm quite happy with my results thus far on the program.

    he may have received less than positive feedback from various folk and i haven't read his 'modified' articles but there is still a significant amount of information promoting this method of dieting. i, for one, can say that this is the method i use (edit: that my coach uses with all of his clients. he just so happens to be friends with Berardi) which has resulted in the best results i've seen in my entire life in a significantly shorter period of time.

    different strokes for different folks. p/c/f works well for some people. while p/f and p/c works for others.

    Except for PWO all the research out suggests that a combination of protein, some carbs (starchy/fruit/vegetable/fibre) and some healthy fats is always beneficial - regardless of whether you are cutting or bulking.

    The information 'promoting' that method of dieting has no scientific merit - it is all 'testimonial' stuff only (eg: "I did the diet and I got ripped" or "I did the diet and I got HUUUGEEE")...

    But don't get me wrong - I never said the diet doesn't work... Infact, the diet can work... But this is because it is working 'despite the macro seperation' rather than because of it... In reality, anything that provides appropriate calories, sufficient protein, some healthy fats and some fibre and is not completely stupid will work...

    All I am saying there is no real (applicable, reliable, peer-reviewed, scientific) evidence for the suggestions at all.

    'all the research' is very broad. what references are you basing this on?

    Have you ever used a p/c/f approach? And if so, was it strict, and planned like the p/c p/f approach your using now?

    Here is the update of Massive Eating...

    Here is a Food combining Study that showed no difference between the two diets (disociated or balanced).

    There is another one Here where it was shown that three different diets (balanced, food-combining or low-carb) had similar results.

    There is a great article here where they basically conclude that a moderate carb, high to moderate protein, low-ish fat diet (in terms of western diets anyway) is probably optimal in terms of hormonal influences on satiety and hunger.

    And another Here - on appetite control. And a great article on regulation of food intake Here.

    There are also many studies on the short and long term effects of the different macronutrients if you want to look them up - simply go to Pubmed or Highwire and type in any number of searches (eg: protein AND satiety OR macronutrients AND satiety etc) and you will get a stack of papers back.

    eg:
    protein satiety -
    http://www.ajcn.org/cgi/content/abstract/82/1/41

    Carb and fibre satiety -
    http://www.nutrition.org/cgi/content/full/130/2/272S?
    http://www.ajcn.org/cgi/content/full/72/6/1461?

    Diet composition and dieting -

    you're missing my point entirely. that's irrelevant for the purpose of this argument. i'm simply stating that there is no one 'cookie cutter' method of dieting. both methods exist and neither is 'bollox'. there are success stories on both sides so how can one be more 'correct' than the other? that's just as asinine as saying bodypart training is the ONLY option...it's simply not.

    how is it illogical to split up your meals in a way that enables your body to utilize the macronutrients it needs at the times they will be best put to use? your body simply does not need p/c/f all day in each meal. however, it would be naive of me to state eating all three in each meal doesn't work because clearly it does...it's just not the only way. let's be a little open minded here.

    Don't be so defensive. Actually, according to PreMiers comments I think that was the point he was trying to make - keep an open mind.

    Nice post Emma

    It's not really a defensive post. I see an open mind. She says cookie cutter doesn't work, there is more than one method of dieting, and people get results from more than one dietary approach.

    And I guess this is a true statement too.
