I've been eating high healthy fat meals of thick, rich shakes or smoothies in the morning, eggs and bacon with coconut oil or butter balanced with the occasional lower fat and high carb meals throughout the week. I have been so satisfied and full and have overall felt really good!
The basic principles of the book teaches you that your body burns fat or glucose (from carbs) for fuel and when you eat them both together you overload on fuel and then that fuel goes to your fat cells for storage. I have plenty of "fuel"storage lol! So ya just eat more of one fuel source (fat or carbs) each meal with protein, just not too close together. There is way more detail in the book and tons of other really good info and recipes but that's the just of it.
They talk about a couple different types of meals in the book, "S" or satifying meals are the meals higher in healthy fat and lower in carbs. "E" or energizing meals are higher in carbs and lower in fats. So when you see me post S or E recipes this is what I am referring to!
