    Exercise + Fasting Is Stress, Causes Obesity And IR, And Requires Cortisol Blockade To Reverse

    I think this thread will ring true for all people who at some in their lives exercised in order to lose weight. Just like fasting, it works great in younger age (<30) but it really masks a bigger metabolic problem and of course badly backfired in the long run. Exercise is a forced/stressed...

    Inhibiting Serotonin During Protein Feeding Doubles Maximum Lifespan

    This study is actually on the effects of a high protein diet on brain neurotransmitters and lifespan. It was done in fruit flies but the serotonin in those fruit flies are essentially the same in humans. So, the results should hold. One of the big takeaways from the study is the explanation of...

    Low Protein / High Carb Diet - Healthier Than Caloric Restriction

    Ray has written about this before, several times across his many articles. He criticizes the caloric restriction (CR) studies due to the fact that the studies used toxic food ingredients, including PUFA. So, lowering those toxic food ingredients in the CR diets would produce a positive effect...

    Low Calorie, Low Carb Intake Lowers T3 And Increases RT3

    Perfectly logical findings for those following Peat, but it is nonetheless nice to see even a mainstream "broscience" blog conclude that the only solution to curing the chronic low T3 syndrome eat more and make sure a lot of the food is carbs. Also, it seems that people are also finally...
