That's probably because you're a lightweight... literally.

I am not sure what the science behind this is (if there is any), but anecdotally, many lighter people, especially women, seem to become intoxicated quite easily. One of my best friend's wife can drink about half a beer and she starts to act all goofy.

Of course, if may just be that men drink more and therefore build up a greater tolerance to alcohol.

I find IF = lightweight when it comes to beer. Saves me money!

Back to the original topic, no way would I IF with grains, etc. I'm sure it's much better than ad libitum eating, but I'd feel like crap. Straight paleo, no IF would be preferable for me.

I think it's really just points on a continuum. That is, you may get good results with IF + shitty food, but you'll get better results with IF + quality food. Just as you may get good results with zone proportions but better results with zone + paleo foods.

Cool. Greg, that's a good point. I wasn't attempting to justify eating non-paleo items. I was just curious as to what the communities opinion was on the topic. My feeling goes like this IF with a non-paleo diet is just as good as an ad lib paleo diet. IF + Paleo is optimal.

My feeling is that if you're doing IF and eat poorly, there's just a less to worry about; or, if you just can't square away the food quality, at least try to mitigate ill-effects by implementing IF.

Hey new here from the Crossfit board.

How bad does eating "crappy foods" ( not including fast food, candy or sodas cause I really don't touch that crap) if it is only a couple times a week really effect the body if the person eats generally zone/paleo specific majority of the time? I don't eat a lot of bread, pasta, chicken salad wraps from chick fil-a, and cereal or dairy items often, sometimes only once or twice a week soetimes none. But I find splurging on those things every once and a while doesnt seem to put much a hinge on the diet, if not help it a little bit.

Unless you are sensitive to those things, then, nothing, really.

Oftentimes it's a balance issue. Occasionally, a genuine health concern.

Often those "crappy foods" are a nice reprieve and treat. That said, as of late I've had no urge for any of that kind of food. I'm finding Paleo, high fat, IF'in to be working great and has cut all the cravings I used to get. I don't remember the last time I had a binge/munch out session...the foods that are on my menu have become my favorite foods now.

I remember a great line off the Crossfit message board, something along the lines of:
"great athletes with shitty diets don't perform great because of their diets but in spite of"

Okay we learned something.

(Now if only I could figure out why I get so drunk off of less than two beers...)
God, you are so my dream girl.

Alas, having been married 16 years, you come along much too late.

I had half a pizza and a pitcher of beer to break my fast today (whilst playing a trivia game at a local establishment. . .4th place out of 13 teams using 2 people, other teams had about 10) and I feel fine.

What was the question again?
