    YoYo Dieting As A Strategy For Rapid Pufa Depletion

    Does anyone like the idea of intentionally fattening on extremely low pufa foods and then dieting down to not get fat and the repeating this until pufa percent is much lower? You lower the adipose pufa percentage every time you add body fat without pufa. So if you go from 40lbs of body fat...

    Arginine / Glutamine Depletion May Treat Cancer By Blocking The Warburg "Effect"

    As my readers have noticed, I started putting quotes around the "effect" part of the infamous observation made by Otto Warburg himself. Over the last 3-4 years, even mainstream medicine has started to publish studies acknowledging that the "effect" is very much a cause as well. In other words...

    Even Minor Stress Substantially Decreases DHEA-S Levels

    Most endocrinologists are at a loss when asked what leads to lower DHEA-S levels. The generic response is "aging" but the DHEA-S have been steadily declining over the last 30 years (just as testosterone) in young people, so that explanation does not add up. While Peat has not directly written...

    RoundUp (Glyphosate) Finally Proven Toxic - It Depletes Glycine

    For more than 2 decades Monsanto has been denying that RoundUp has a provable adverse effects on living organisms. The official reason cited was that there was no known mechanism through which glyphosate (active ingredient in RoundUp) can exert detrimental effects on the cell. Sounds...

    The Big Misunderstanding About PUFA Depletion

    There's a big misunderstanding about PUFA depletion just like there is a big misunderstanding about endotoxin, and that is, they are always a problem and always will be a problem for life. You can't stop their effects completely, but you can do things to greatly reduce their effect. You...

    Dietary Fat Intake Below 15% Depletes PUFA

    A human study. Obviously, a lower fat intake will increase PUFA depletion. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1345066/ "...No patient was EFA deficient before the onset of TPN. EFA deficiency was prevented when at least 3.2% of total calories were given as intravenous fat or at least...

    PUFA Depletion Can (probably) Be Accomplished In 30 Days!

    Since removing PUFA from the body is one of the primary goals of Peatarians, naturally anything that can speed up the process of waiting at least 4 years would be highly desirable. I have been experimenting myself relentlessly with speeding that process up (as safely as possible). While...

    Tryptophan (serotonin) Depletion In Brain (and Elsewhere)

    I wrote on this topic several times and I know has commented on it as well in terms of lowering serotonin by loading up on gelatin and BCAA. One of the most potent methods for lowering serotonin in the brain is by taking the chemical p-choloro-phenylalanine (pCPA), which inhibits the enzyme...

    More On Serotonin Depletion

    Hi all, I've been researching the topic of serotonin depletion since it seems to be tied to so many beneficial health effects. There is a thread on this forum discussing Fenclonine (p-chloro-phenylalanine) used to deplete serotonin in animals and humans, thus resulting in tremendous increases...
