    Sterculia oil, SCD1 and inflammation

    To my surprise I didnt find a post on this so I figured I'd make one, because I want to know your opinions. So many of us know Brad Marshall for his Croissant diet, a diet high in stearic acid. Recently he has been researching and writing a lot about the role of the enzyme SCD1 which regulates...

    Am I fat like a wild pig?

    So I have been doing I would say a peat inspired diet for about a month now and have gained about 30 pounds. And probably it is half muscle and half fat and water. I would say I averaged 20-30 pounds overweight most of my life prior to the keto and carnivore diet I was on. About 2 years...

    PUFAs, cardiolipin, ATP production and obesity

    As we all know, PUFAs are a metabolic toxin. One of the mechanisms how a high fat diet promotes obesity and metabolic syndrome is by remodeling cardiolipin. Cardiolipin is a unique mitochondrial phospholipid that contains 4 fatty acids. Its main goal is to stabilize the complexes of the electron...

    More Saturated fat seems to have cured my adhd + reduced my facial bloating.

    hey, relating to edema and food consumption i was checking out edwardjedmonds blog - he emphasises the value of saturated fat in the diet - claiming glucose is a primitive and inefficient energy source) ( i think i read he was a powerlifter) ray also said that the muscles at rest consume...

    PUFA is catabolic, SFA is anti-catabolic (anabolic)

    During the early days of anabolic-androgenic steroid (AAS) science, it quickly became apparent that the ability of AAS to preserve and/or increase muscle mass was related to their ability to reduce/block the expression of amino acid catabolic enzymes such as tyrosine aminotransferase (TAT). TAT...

    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...

    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?

    The Most OVERLOOKED Peat Quote

    "I think a person of average size should have at least 180 grams per day, maybe an average of about 250 grams." In my opinion this is the most overlooked and important of Peat quotes for people on this forum to read. Many people here experiencing health problems, or even creating new health...

    BK To Feed Cattle Lemongrass, Positive Or No?

    tweet from Burger King today - I'm suspicious that just adding one substance to the diet can decrease emissions by 33% - that seems disproportionate. Lemongrass is an herb, probably cows would eat it anyway, but are they just going to be fed the plant? Or will it be some extract/lemongrass...

    Is The Fat Content Of Grain-fed Milk More Estrogen Than Grass-fed?

    I know that the fat content of the meat is more estrogenic when a cow is fed grain, but is the milk also even though the cow has 7 stomachs, rumen, etc?

    MORTALITY FROM COVID-19 INCREASES WITH UNSATURATED FAT

    MORTALITY FROM COVID-19 INCREASES WITH UNSATURATED FAT, AND MAY BE REDUCED BY EARLY CALCIUM AND ALBUMIN SUPPLEMENTATION - Hypocalcemia, hypoalbuminemia occur early during severe COVID-19 - UFAs cause MSOF, inflammation resembling severe COVID-19 - Mortality from COVID-19 correlates with...

    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. Namely, higher cholesterol intake is associated with much higher lean muscle mass accrual as a result of weight lifting. Interestingly, higher protein intake was not. Even more interestingly, and much...

    Anti-Peat PUFAs Better Than Saturated Fats?

    Supplementation With (long Chain) Saturated Fats Protects Liver From Alcohol

    As many of my readers already know, there are a number of human studies, going back to at least the 1960s, demonstrating that supplementation with saturated fats (SFA) protects the liver from damage induced by alcohol. I fact, supplementation with SFA not only prevents alcohol-induced liver...

    Saturated Fats (SFA) Increase Glucose Oxidation While PUFA Decrease It

    This is great human study that addresses two key questions people have often asked Peat in regards to SFA vs. PUFA. As Peat has mentioned several times, during stress (exercise in this case) PUFA is preferentially oxidized while SFA is stored. The preferential oxidization of PUFA during stress...

    CNN News - Running Lowers Testosterone In Males

    When news like this features on CNN, it is becoming obvious that something it not right with the official recommendations for regular (endurance) exercise as the best way to ward off CVD, cancer, brain diseases, osteoporosis, etc. The CNN piece also states that vitamin D supplements, weight...

    Saturated Fat (palmitate) Does NOT Activate TLR4

    We must have had hundreds of discussions on this topic on the forum. Some forum users strongly believe that saturated fat (SFA) increases inflammation by binding to and activating the endotoxin (LPS) receptor TLR4. Among all SFA, palmitate is the one most commonly blamed and has been...

    Topical Stearic Acid Is Metabolized Into Longer Chain SFA

    This seems like a very interesting study, but is in French and not available from PubMed. So, I am hoping @burtlancast would be able to obtain it and maybe translate the relevant fractions. The study shows that dietary stearic acid is both incorporated into cell lipids and metabolized further...

    PUFA Increases Alcohol Damage By Increasing Cell Fluidity; SFA Are Protective

    Peat has written a number of times on the synergies of PUFA with ethanol and endotoxin on causing liver and systemic damage. In one of his articles he opined that in the absense of PUFA/iron ethanol would likely not cause much harm. He also wrote about the protective effects of saturated fats...
