    Ray himself consumes 1600 calories of sugar per day, with 0 white sugar

    Many people may already know this, but I just want to clarify this for anyone who still assumes he only drinks 1 or 2 quarts of OJ with white sugar and doesn't eat "high carb". I was playing around with this cool search tool Ray Peat Search made by @rijo , and I found an interview with Peat...

    Orange Juice And Thiamine Deficiency

    I had a Thiamine deficiency. A simple supplement gave me back my ability to break down alcohol without intense facial flushing and feeling like I have the flu. It's phenomenal. My question is, since high-carb dies increase the need for Thiamine, would drinking orange juice cause a thiamine...

    OJ Intolerance

    One cause of OJ intolerance may be the fiber dissolved in it. If you cant get a hold of OJ without pulp, its worth trying to remove the pulp.

    Do You Get Over The Fruit/Orange Juice Blood Sugar Spike?

    For most of the people who have been eating this way for a long time....have your blood sugar levels or insulin gone up? Were they low/normal to begin with? On low carb both of these were low/normal for me and now have gone up. Does this settle down eventually? How long?

    No More Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice? Beneficial Flavor Packs?

    We all know that orange juice is beneficial on many levels, fructose, naringenin etc. Being the ever diligent Peatarian, I only drink fresh squeezed, strained OJ because it is far superior to store bought, not from concentrate juice like Tropicana or Simply Orange. The downside of the latter...

    Does Pulp Free OJ Really Matter?

    I dont get what the big deal is about pulp free OJ? I buy both pulp free and pulp OJ. Personally I think pulp OJ tastes way better. I would have thought it contains more nutrients too?

    1.5L OJ, 1.5L goat milk, 100 gram beef, 1 egg yolk diet

    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...

    Eating Oranges Instead Of Drinking OJ

    I was wondering if it is okay to eat oranges instead of drinking OJ. I don't like the taste or how processed it is. And is coconut water a good alternative?
