    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...

I want to share with you some things I learned along the way. There are many diets out there. Nutrition is like religion, people protect...

    Intermittent Fasting (IF) Ineffective And May Even Be Dangerous

    I have no doubt the findings of this study will quickly get dismissed by the massive industry that has formed around the idea that ANY weight loss is a good thing, and, just as importantly, if you lose weight while torturing yourself (in this with fasting) somehow the "gains" are even more...

    Is Fibre A Menace?

    According to Konstantin Monastyrsky (gutsense.org), the primary cause of constipation and colorectal disorders (IBS, colitis, colon cancer, etc.) is dietary fibre. Ray himself has claimed to eat a "fibre-free diet", but that's not quite right: he eats raw carrots and mushrooms because of their...

Anyway - for now - I have been doing a lot of reading lately on Tryptophan and...

    High-carb (65%-85%) Diets Therapeutic In Diabetes

    Another myth of mainstream medicine continues to (slowly) crumble. The myth of diabetes as the "sugar disease" may be still alive but the evidence against it is quickly mounting. Perhaps the only thing still preventing it from collapsing overnight is the large numbers of Paleo-diet supporters...

    “All You Have To Do To Lose Weight. Turn Fat Into CO2 & H2O

    Just ran across this TEDx vid on YouTube. It started out sounding like it could be a very Peat-like explanation to fat loss. However, the final take was “move more, eat less and breath”. Are there nuggets to take away from this? He says the #1 question he gets is “can we just sit around and...

    High-salt Diet Strongly Inhibits Cancer Growth

    I am posting this study mostly as a response to the hostile exchanges I have had with doctors over what they claimed was "irresponsible" promotion of high salt intake. While these discussions mostly revolved around CVD, I also made claims that increased sodium intake would be protective for...

    The Keto Diet Works Only For A Week, Then It Causes Obesity And Diabetes

    A great study that goes a long way towards dispelling the currently dominant dietary fad - the keto diet, as well as various other functionally equivalent diets such as Paleo, Warrior, intermittent fasting, etc. As the study unequivocally demonstrates, the reductions in blood sugar and weight...

    Eating 1 Lb Of Sugar Daily Has Strikingly Positive Effects On (male) Fertility

    When I saw this news article pop up in my daily feed I immediately thought to myself "This study will never get covered by large mainstream news outlets". And of course, the websites of CNN, Fox, ABC, CNBC, USA Today, etc have no trace of an article covering the study or even just the basic...

    Down Syndrome (DS) Cognitive Handicap Is Due To (cellular) Stress, May Be Reversible

    If there is any disease that is currently considered incurable even in principles, it likely comes from the group of inherited/genetic disorders. Perhaps the most well-known one, due to rapidly rising incidence and thus publicity, is DS. Perhaps its most disabling aspect of DS is the cognitive...

    Despite Striking Increase In Dieting And Exercise, Obesity Is Skyrocketing

    Maybe it takes a study like the one below to finally wake the public health authorities from their century-long slumber. I doubt there is a person alive today living in the Western world who has not been raised by the mantra "eat less and move more" as the single proven way to lose weight...

    SFA / MUFA Are Preferentially Oxidized, While PUFA Are Stored/accumulated

    Just a quick post in response to some of the hate mail I keep getting on a daily basis in regards to the body's discriminatory treatment of various fat types. According to various proponents of keto diets, fasting, etc the organism has no preference for one type of fat or another in terms of...

    Endotoxin Has A G.E.L.D.I.N.G Effect, Causes Obesity And Hypogonadism

    A very interesting study proposing that the decline in gonadal function seen in obese/diabetic men is due to chronically elevated endotoxin levels in such people. The study calls this phenomenon (G)ut (E)dotoxin (L)eading to a (D)ecline (I)n (G)onadal function (GELDING) due to the remarkable...

    Vegans And Vegetarians Have A Higher Risk Of Stroke

    A good reminder that vegetables are not as benign, let alone as healthy, as your board-certified, PhD-boasting, marathon-running corporate nutritionist would have you believe. In fact, this is not the first study to seriously question the "eat mostly plants" mantra. Several other very large and...

    ALS Tied To Increased Fat Oxidation (FAO), Increasing Glucose May Treat It

    I made a few posts in the past about ALS characterized by adrenal hyperactivity and suppressed gonadal function, as well as mitochondrial dysfunction and copper deficiency. Also, non-familial ALS is known to occurs 4-5 times more often in active/retired elite athletes. All of these findings...

    (Brain) Cancer Is A Metabolic Disease, Can Be Treated By Glutamine Restriction

    It seems that mainstream medicine is finally wisening up to the massacre they have been orchestrating for the last 100 years. Without much fanfare or apologies, medicine is now quietly changing its story on cancer, hoping the public won't notice as long as a cure is finally found. The study...

    Vitamin D Deficiency Can Cause Heart Failure

    As many readers know, there is an epidemic of vitamin D deficiency. It is of worldwide proportions, but is visible mainly in "developed" countries in the Western world. The official stance of mainstream medicine is that while vitamin D deficiency is undesirable, it does not really have much...
