Just found out that Vital Farms is feeding their chickens "unprocessed soymeal."
Thankfully I easily found an organic brand that is soy-free, and I have switched over for good.
Be careful out there, lads.
I'm observing an interesting sensation: every time I eat whole eggs, I get this kind of chest pain that lasts for a few hours, sometimes even until the next morning.
I don't feel that comfortable with this and also makes me a bit concerned about my heart health.
Back when I was...
Dr. Peat mentioned in his Kmud 9.18.9 interview, that regular store eggs cannot be considered saturated because they are fed a PUFA feed. I'm Vegetarian and rely on 2 eggs a day for my protein, and my questions is: can frying eggs in butter neutralize or reduce the impact of PUFA in the eggs or not?
A pair of interesting study and a commentary in the highly respected Journals of Gerontology. Namely, higher cholesterol intake is associated with much higher lean muscle mass accrual as a result of weight lifting. Interestingly, higher protein intake was not. Even more interestingly, and much...
As many of you know, there are 2 fundamental dogmas in reproductive medicine. One is that every woman is born with a fixed number of eggs and those cannot be replenished. The second one is that there is a biological fertility clock in every woman that inexorably ticks, and if the female does not...
Whole egg is a food source of dietary cholesterol and inconsistent research findings exist about the effect of dietary cholesterol from whole egg on blood cholesterol concentration. We assessed the effect of co-consuming cooked whole egg (CWE) on dietary cholesterol absorption from two...
This study probably won't come as surprise to forum users given what Ray has said and written about cholesterol. Without much fanfare, after more than 60 years of officially demonizing cholesterol in 2017 the FDA quietly reversed its position on recommending avoiding cholesterol. However, to...
And the difference is big! 100% and 50% for each ,compared to subjects with higher insulin sensitivity.
Egg yolks/milk and liver are rich source of these phospholipids. But yolks are the richest.
Skeletal muscle phosphatidylcholine and phosphatidylethanolamine are related to insulin...
I posted a study on the height of Dutch men - a well studied phenomenon officially explained by genes, but recently recast as one possibly due to diet.
Dutch People Gained 20cm Of Height In Just 150 Years
Now this new study adds more evidence to the diet hypothesis as it found a population in...

'ear them now:
I got to this table because of the vit b12 availability study cited: http://ebm.sagepub.com/content/149/4/987.full.pdf+html
Something relevant mainly for...
A lot of people here consume eggs on a regular basis. The discussion is not new: soft boiling or poaching?
In both methods the yolk remains intact and is not overcooked.
Inside the egg shell there's naturally present water, so we're not comparing dry heat versus moist heat.
In Dr Peat's...
I have a question about eggs. A friend of mine is allergic to egg yolks but NOT allergic to egg whites. Quite the opposite to what one would expect. She is protein deficient, as confirmed by multiple nitrogen tests and wants to "load-up" on protein. I know Ray is not a fan off egg...
The city I'm in does not have Pastured eggs....anywhere lol The closest thing I can find is organic cage free...Should I wait until I can obtain pastured eggs...or is there not a big difference between the two??
I'm thinking about how a Ray Peat diet covers the RDA guidelines.
Of course, Ray Peat and people here may not agree with all those RDA guidelines, but I think that for 80% they are pretty accurate. I made this for myself, but I share it, because maybe other people find it interesting as well...
Peat talks about balancing protein with sugar. Well, I wondered, what are you balancing? ounces? grams? Sugar is a carb, so I thought he meant carb grams to protein grams. (Anyone familiar with the Zone diet?)
Anyway, being kinda OCD, and thinking I had it figured out, I went in Cronometer and...
I've heard that 1-2eggs a week is good. However, I think I've seen this only applies if you can't get organic cage free eggs...So I guess my question is if I have access to organic cage free eggs, does Peat still recommend 1-2eggs a week?
Anyone have issues with eggs?
If so is it whites or yolks you have issues with?
I vaguely remember reading something that it's the whites that create allergies. I get runny nose/nasal drip from eggs.
I will test it of course, but would be useful to know before.
I had taken a walk and was hungry. Before the walk, I'd eaten hard candies.
When I got in, I ate an ounce of cheese and 2.5 egg yolks (scrambled with some milk in coconut oil). Salted. I used just the yolks because someone mentioned the whites might be problematic (since I get sick on eggs...
