    DHEA causes fat-loss and improved glucose metabolism in humans

    Another study corroborating the role of DHEA as one of the "youth" hormones. A recent study already demonstrated that DHEA can reverse aging of the human immune system, which usually goes hand in hand with lower cortisol and improved metabolism. The proven anti-cortisol effects of DHEA are...

    Fasting ineffective for shrinking belly fat, may actually increase it

    Hopefully, this study will give some serious food for thought to people who use (intermittent) fasting (IF) with the goal of losing excess weight. A recent post of mine discussed that IF is ineffective for fat loss and actually leads to loss of lean mass. The lead author of that study, himself...

    Incredible Craving for Fatty Red Meat

    I find myself craving fatty, red meat all day long. I eat pounds of it over the days. I average at least at least 2-3 pounds a day, and it's taking a toll on my bills. I try to get the highest quality meat I can get, which is usually imported grass-fed lamb and mutton. I'm about 178cm, about...

Here is the website if anyone is interested Merry Farm | Buy Milk Separators, Butter Churns, Egg Incubators Worldwide

    The Low-Fat Era - A Big Fat Lie?

    You hear all the time from low-carb/keto/carnivore people that the introduction of low-fat products and the governmental push of low-fat diets is a major cause of today's health problems. So I actually tried to dig up nutrition statistics over the ages. If you actually look at the statistics...

    How Much Dietary Fat Do You Actually Need For Hormones?

    I haven't found a good thread on this, but read a few posts of people saying their T skyrockets on a low-fat diet, which goes against what you hear in a lot of communities, being that fat is a very important precursor for hormones. I myself am experiencing with a lower-fat diet at the moment to...

    I Dont Tolerate Food X Anymore, I Can’t Eat Anything Anymore

    AKA you are frying all of your food and that is exactly the problem for you. I have observed this in real life too. Putting oil in the pan and heating it up like crazy is just business as usual. You flare up? It must have been the spinach. The only ingredient you are not considering (oil) is...

    How Nutritious Is Animal FAT Really?

    In the paleo, keto and especially carnivore communities, people usually praise animal fat, also for it's "high nutrient-density". But all sources I've looked at show that there aren't a lot of nutrients at all. I usually use Nährwertrechner, an incredibly detailed german food database. Here's...

    Help Me: SN-2 Positioning

    I'm having a difficult time figuring out how the sn-2 positioning of fatty acids works. What's the mechanism? What's the practical application? For instance, I've been using beef Tallow for its stearic acid and palmitic acid content, but I've read that over 50% of the fatty acids in the sn-2...

    PUFA Makes Girls Fat / Lazy / Diabetic And Exercise Futile

    Just a few minutes ago I made a post about PUFA (from nuts) increasing risk of diabetes. I just came across another very similar study below. It found that PUFA consumption, in both mice and humans, makes them fat and highly sedentary while also increasing their diabetes risk. MUFA and SFA had...

    Burning More Fat And Less Glucose Leads To Diabetes

    I really hope the keto community and other low-carb diet afficionados are taking note of the stream of recent studies that keep demonstrating a causative link between low-carb and/or high-fat diets, fasting, chronic stress, cortisol and diabetes. The evidence at this point is indisputable, no...

    PUFA Are Immunosuppressive, Fasting And Protein Restriction (possibly) Even More So

    Several great studies, which quickly illustrate the connection between PUFA, immune system, estrogen, cortisol, cancer and the protective role vitamin A/E play as well as their likely mechanism(s) of action. As I mentioned on one of the first podcasts with Danny Roddy, the role of PUFA as...

    Mitochondrial Damage And Fatty Acid Buildup, Not Glucose, May Drive Diabetes

    Finally some common sense is coming out of mainstream medicine. The study below demonstrates that it is the buildup of fatty acid metabolites and mitochondrial damage that drives the chronic inflammation now known to be a major causative factor for diabetes II (T2DM), as well as virtually all...

    Increased Fat Oxidation (FAO) Does Not Lead To Weight / Fat Loss

    The study below directly contradicts a mantra commonly repeated in nutrition circles - restrict glucose and increase fat oxidation in order to lose body fat. In fact, this idea is so ingrained into the minds of most people that I often get hate mail from people all over the world angrily...

    Only Dietary Fat, Not Protein Or Sugar (sucrose), Drives Obesity

    This is a recent study that confirms another controversial one I posted on the forum more than a year ago. https://raypeatforum.com/community/threads/low-protein-high-carb-diet-healthier-than-caloric-restriction.6909/ The newer study also had some unexpected findings. For example, increasing...

    Fats Cause Cause Cognitive Impairment And Insulin Resistance In The Brain

    The topic of whether fats cross the BBB is very controversial, especially in light of recent evidence that dementias like Alzheimer are simply so-called "diabetes of the brain". It is well-known in clinical circles that fats do cause insulin resistance, but the PUFA lobby is powerful enough to...

    Cancer Addiction To Fat Confirmed; Niacinamide As Possible Treatment

    This is the latest of a number of studies over the last year or so that point the finger at fat (and not sugar) as the primary factor in tumor growth. I posted a few studies in the past showing that tumor cells are highly dependent on fat for growth and proliferation, and a number of...

    Dietary Fat And Its Oxidation Drives Cancer Metastasis

    Yet another study that discover cancer cells love for fat. As I posted in a few other threads, cancer cells actually need fat (preferably PUFA) for metastasis and survival, and use sugar for ATP generation. Achilles Heel Of Cancer Found - Its Addiction To Fat Cancer Cells Addicted To Fat And Use...
