    Regular Aspirin Intake Can Save The US Almost $700b In Healthcare Costs

    I am starting to see more and more "bold" news articles that seem to prepare for an official change in policy by the FDA. Given that nothing so far has been able to stop the rising healthcare costs or improve outcome for patients in the medical system, the powers that be are getting desperate...

    How Much Calcium Is Too Much Calcium?

    According to cronometer I'm getting around 3,000 mg of calcium a day from diet. I'd like to take an extra 500mg in eggshell calcium to get my calcium:phosphorus ratio up closer to 1.3:1. Would that be excessive in terms of calcium ingested per day - 3,500 mg?

The dosage may be different for other people depending on the circumstances. Malnourished, hypothyroid or liver-disease people may need more or less depending...

    Too Much Protein At Once?

    I was mixing my regular milk/skyr/sugar/glycine/taurine smoothie and started wondering if 50g of protein at once was too much. A lot of bodybuilder sites say 30g is the most the body can use to build muscle, but I'm more interested in metabolism in general. Any thoughts on whether 50g is too much?

    Only 150-250g Gram Carbs ?

    I read that Ray Peat recommands 180-250 g carbs daily. Is that for a 2000 calorie diet ? Just doing a little bit of mathematics with that. Because 180-250 gram carbs is only 700-1000 calories. For someone that needs 2000 calories, that is only 35-50% of the total calories. For someone that...

    How Much Fat Do You Guys Eat Per Day?

    Here are the issues I am having with the RP diet. Trying to go high carb, low fat, high protein, high calorie is not working for me. 2 quarts of OJ will only get you so far. 1 litre of Skimmed milk has barely 400 calories. By this stage, you are ingesting ridiculously huge amounts of liquid...

    How to get enough sugar without excessive fluid intake

    Hi! Starch is not my friend, it makes me angry and tired. I do much better with sugar (fruits, soda, cheese etc.). My problem is that I always end up with to much liquids when I cut out starch. I get about 4 liter water from liquids/food. I would love to cut down the liquids, especially during...

    Eating too much salt?

    Hi, I've been Peating in the last two months and I increased my salt intake drastically. Currently, I'm eating 1 tsp of coarse salt 3 times a day before meals. I just take the coarse salt into my mouth and swallow it with some water. I'm doing this because of edema due to estrogen dominance...

    Calorie Intake

    I assumed I had been taking in my usual 2,500-3,000 calories a day since I've been Peat-ing. I've been eating whenever I'm hungry, eating basically anything I want, within the guidelines. I saw a post by Andrew Kim, of what he ate one day, so I decided to join Fitday.com and punch in my...
