    High carbs for fat loss/ increase metabolic rate? Asking for some advice.

    I’ve been familiar with Ray Peat for awhile but my mental health has been very bad since the beginning of 2020 up until now. I eat all the “peat” foods, followed by binge eating junk filled with pufa, and alcohol consumption to escape. Im cutting out alcohol and processed foods. I’m finally...

    Excess Iron Is Associated With Diabetes, Obesity And Metabolic Syndrome

    By this time we are all aware that iron should be kept low. In this study iron is involved in insulin resistance, inflammation and fat gain. Iron homeostasis: a new job for macrophages in adipose tissue? "men and women in the highest quintile of serum ferritin (Ft) levels – the primary...

    Elevated PUFA In Blood Drive Metabolic Syndrome And Diabetes

    Some good evidence on the role of PUFA and inflammation in obesity and diabetes. The findings that FFA are elevated in obese people is not surprising and even mainstream medicine has wisened up to that fact. The surprising (for the authors) part was that unsaturated fats were involved in the...

    Strong Androgens (DHT) As Treatment For CVD, Obesity And Metabolic Syndrome

    The study used DHT as the active drug but since the positive effects were due to androgen receptor agonism, any other strong androgen agonist should do. I think the lack of estrogenicity also contributed to the benefits of DHT observed in this study, so this would explain the mixed results with...

    Blue Light Exposure Just Twice A Day Causes Insulin Resistance In Humans

    No need to elaborate, given how much Ray has written about red and blue light and their effects on metabolism. The key result from the study was that just 3 hours of exposure was enough to trigger that metabolic dysfunction. Imagine what happens at night when there is ambient blue light...

    Magnesium Intake And Incidence Of Metabolic Syndrome Among Young Adults

    www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16567569 Abstract BACKGROUND: Studies suggest that magnesium intake may be inversely related to risk of hypertension and type 2 diabetes mellitus and that higher intake of magnesium may decrease blood triglycerides and increase high-density lipoprotein (HDL)...

    Dietary methionine restriction increases fat oxidation in obese adults with metabolic syndrome.

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21346062 OBJECTIVE: In preclinical reports, restriction of dietary methionine intake was shown to enhance metabolic flexibility, improve lipid profiles, and reduce fat deposition. The present report is the outcome of a "proof of concept" study to evaluate the...

    Dietary Emulsifiers Promote Colitis And Metabolic Syndrome

    Emulsifiers are not looking good for intestinal health. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25731162 Milk with added vitamins is probably the worst offender for emulsifiers in the Ray Peat world. The worst part is that apparently you don't have to include the emulsifier on the label for the...
