Just out of curiousity....is there ANY real differences between the "Metabolic Diet" and the "NHE" eating plan? (I can't remember all the specific details with each) From what I recall both are low carb (30g/day) with carb ups at 3/1 or 4/1....all with high protein and fat...

No idea why I am asking this....just curious while I was looking over some old stuff....and fooling around with the Body Opus program lately....

NHE is not high protein or fat on the refeed days--I believe his recommendation is to try to get more than 100g CHO in each of last two meals of the refeed day, preferably with less than 10g of protein or fat...I'm not too familiar with the Metabolic Diet other than being low carb then splurge on weekends.

Virtually identical. NHE explains some of the sciency stuff better...MD allows for post WO carb spikes to facilitate recovery if the standard plan is not cutting it. The trouble shooting guide is legit:

Yeah kind of thought that....wanted to get some clarification before I went out and bought NHE....might do it anyways...anyone got a used one to loan?
