• tca300: I understand this is off topic from what you typically teach, but I was wondering if you have run across any information or learned on your own, things that help people grieve over lost loved ones, and or fear of losing others to death? Thank you!

    Ray Peat: It activates the “helplessness” reactions in the body, stress weakening your own life, and I think it can help to get out of that if you think of your life as a continuation of theirs—the same life, though with fewer bodies.

    Homemade Peat-Friendly Whey Protein

    Many of us are struggling getting enough protein for muscle building on a Peat diet. 150 g daily (average) is hard to find if you don't drink 2L milk every day, if you don't have enough money or just no time. Androsterone and other "pro-metabolic" substances are useful but still need enough...

    PUFA is catabolic, SFA is anti-catabolic (anabolic)

    During the early days of anabolic-androgenic steroid (AAS) science, it quickly became apparent that the ability of AAS to preserve and/or increase muscle mass was related to their ability to reduce/block the expression of amino acid catabolic enzymes such as tyrosine aminotransferase (TAT). TAT...

    The Ability To Metabolize Glucose Is Impaired In CFS/ME Patients

    The enzyme pyruvate dehydrogenase (PDH) is perhaps the single most important factor in proper glucose metabolism and it is often severely downregulated (both in function and levels) in a number of diseases, most notably cancer, diabetes and neurodegenerative conditions. Without proper...
