    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...

    Do Meats In Supermarkets Contain Higher Amounts Of Endotoxin?

    Ray has talked about the meat in mexico always being fresh and not aged like the meat in the US. We also know that ground meat contains higher amounts of endotoxins than regular meat.

    high amount of chicken

    I have trouble finding free range chicken. I buy oven baked chicken strips by the kilo. It's a main source of calories and protein for me. Since its a fact that chicken are often given hormones, I am wondering what I could eat to counteract this. Any ideas ?

    Does kosher meat have less iron?

    As an ignorant atheist gentile, I think preparation of meat according to the Book involves draining as much as possible of the blood from the meat after slaughter and before butchering, but I'm not sure. Is this right? If so, does that mean it would contain less iron, because the blood has a...

    How does the body signal hunger for protein?

    Yeah, we start craving food with protein, but does anyone know what types of hormones, etc. signal that? We know how it works for sugar: i.e., glucose-insulin cycle. Is there something like that for protein as well? Thanks

    Dieting Is Stressful, And Probably Makes You Fat

    There is a quote on the front page of the forum from Ray saying that chronic dieting leads to hypothyroidism. One of the mechanisms this happens through is the chronically elevated cortisol levels that dieting causes. Here is a study that discussed the effects of dieting on cortisol in humans...

    How To Depufa Chicken

    When making a chicken based broth, a lot of the fat rises to the top. Does anyone have an idea of what percentage of fat you can remove? If you could get it low enough, chicken doesn't seem like such a bad protein source. Low iron and far more digestible than beef. Remove skin and fat, leave...

    Fasting / Dieting Leads To Obesity

    In direct contradiction to outfits like Weight Watchers, Warrior Diet, etc this study shows that chronic dieting and calorie restriction leads to obesity. Most of these "expert" protocols talk about "leptin sensitization". As the study points out, elevated leptin is actually one of the major...

    Iron rich meat tastes bad

    I have always been a huge fan of beef and the like but lately, it all tastes like iron and my stomach is not 100% happy when I eat it. Whitefish, shrimp, gelatine, cheese, it's all a pleasure to eat at the moment so I don't think it's protein in general. Is this a sign that I need to lose some...

    Eating meat

    Im just wondering, this baffles me all the time....why is it that meat smells good, can taste good, but the act of producing it is terryfing and grotesque? Im just wondering how many people would eat meat if they had to kill and process every animal they ate? There seems to be a sort of...

    Safest way to cook shanks?

    I found lamb shanks at the store the other day. LAMB meat with a bone goin through? Sounds like the perfect cut for a Peatarian. I've been looking around the internet trying to find the best way to cook it. Some say oven baked, some say put it in a slow cooker. I know slow cooking is bad for...
