    Carbs and Water Retention

    Hey everyone, So I've noticed that over the years, whenever I'm eating lots of carbs, I have fantastic levels of energy and never feeling hungry, as well as sleeping better. But the downside to this, is that I get a very puffy face, people always notice as in commenting 'oh you've gained weight'...

It is really uncomfortable, half of the day...

    Hyperventilation from contaminated allergic sugar or sugar?

    If I use as much as 25 or more grams of white sugar with a cup of coffee and a glass of milk among other foods - it visibly suppresses my breathing resulting in brain fog. I suspect it might be because of allergic impurities in the sugar, which is absolutely possible in my case, but I don't have...

    The Most OVERLOOKED Peat Quote

    "I think a person of average size should have at least 180 grams per day, maybe an average of about 250 grams." In my opinion this is the most overlooked and important of Peat quotes for people on this forum to read. Many people here experiencing health problems, or even creating new health...

    The People With The World's Healthiest Hearts Eat A 72% Carbohydrate Diet

    So much for carbs making you fat, diabetic, sick and old. This is a nice corroboration of the other thread I posted on Okinawan diet.

    Meals Rich In Carbohydrates, But Poor In Protein May Increase Serotonin In The Brain

    Confused about serotonin OK, so from what I've gathered so far, RP is not a fan of serotonin, and believes estrogen dominance has alot to do with high serotonin and high histamine. But then as I'm reading his article I find this: "A large carbohydrate meal increases the ratio of tryptophan to...

    Carbs, Fats, Energy And Heat

    I've been wondering about the following: When the temperature goes down, we tend to seek heavier foods, fattier. However, if carbs are so much more efficient at generating energy and heat, why wouldn't we just seek more carbs? Is it just a matter of instinct? On the other hand, when people are...

    Only 150-250g Gram Carbs ?

    I read that Ray Peat recommands 180-250 g carbs daily. Is that for a 2000 calorie diet ? Just doing a little bit of mathematics with that. Because 180-250 gram carbs is only 700-1000 calories. For someone that needs 2000 calories, that is only 35-50% of the total calories. For someone that...
