    Eggs/Choline Causing Twitching in Calf & Jaw/Tooth Pain

    I've been having a battle with eggs and choline. I started realizing that eggs help me sleep, but ever since I ate 7 eggs in one day 2 years ago (and got a short bout of insomnia from that large amount), I started having constant small, painless twitching mostly in my leg calf muscles. I also...

    Becoming aversive to milk and eggs?

    For 2 weeks or so I've been doing a bit of a SIBO cleanse with berberine, oregano oil, black cumin seed extract, and flowers of sulfur for a few days at the start. This is the only factor that has really changed in my diet. My tongue has very gradually become less white. Dairy, aside from salty...

    Eggs Under Attack Again

    An short article in the Atlantic says that intestinal bacteria convert Choline in eggs into a compound that correlates strongly with heart disease, stroke, and death. The study implicates Carnitine and Choline. It seems that business-backed studies are hitting on eggs again as a killer. Here's...

    Make Sure Your Eggs Are Soy-Free!

    Just found out that Vital Farms is feeding their chickens "unprocessed soymeal." Absolutely diabolical. Thankfully I easily found an organic brand that is soy-free, and I have switched over for good. Be careful out there, lads.

    Chest Pains After Egg Consumption?

    Hey guys, 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...

    Eggs Fried In Butter

    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?

    Cholesterol And SFA Are Anabolic; PUFA/MUFA Akin To Chemical Castration

    A pair of interesting study and a commentary in the highly respected Journals of Gerontology.

    Fertility Depends On Metabollism (ATP), Not Age

    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...

    Eating 12 Eggs A Week Does Not Increase Risk Of Heart Disease

    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...

    Protein Quality, Not Genes, Determine Male Height

    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...

    Eggs: soft boiling or poaching?

    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...
