    Starch weight gain?

    I've noticed I've gained 15-20 lbs since incorporating potatoes with coconut oil into my diet daily. Have you guys experienced weight gain on starch as well? Or is it a product of just including more fat in the diet?

    Protein and saturated fats beneficial, PUFA detrimental for thyroid

    A good new study, which again confirms that saturated fat is anything but detrimental to our health. Most of the studies until now demonstrating improved thyroid function from saturated fat used coconut oil, and that has led to attacks from mainstream medicine that this pro-thyroid and healthy...

    Hyperventilation from contaminated allergic sugar or sugar?

    If I use as much as 25 or more grams of white sugar with a cup of coffee and a glass of milk among other foods - it visibly suppresses my breathing resulting in brain fog. I suspect it might be because of allergic impurities in the sugar, which is absolutely possible in my case, but I don't have...

    Progesterone use in pregnancy causes homosexuality?

    I am starting to doubt progesterone supplementing in pregnancy since I know someone who took natural progesterone and it made her spot during early pregnancy. This study claims that adults whose mothers took progesterone in pregnancy are more likely to be gay or bisexual. I was under the...

    No, it's not about that popular diet by blood type) This Russian guy has his own YouTube channel. What he does is simple: he eats/drinks something, then takes his blood and looks at it through a microscope. You can judge by two parameters: the flow of blood and the state of red blood cells...

    Even mainstream medicine admits many claims about sugar are myths

    It is always nice to see when a outpost of mainstream medicine tries to set the record straight on something as controversial as refined sugar. My personal favorites are the myths on sugar and causal links to diabetes / cancer. Apparently, there is solid evidence those links are myths. Yet...

    Sugar (sucrose) lowers stress-induced cortisol

    Just a quick post to give some props to the much-vilified sucrose. The study below demonstrates that sucrose consumption for just 3 days prior, blunted most of the negative effects of stress, and especially the rise in plasma cortisol. The HED of sucrose was about 4g/kg, which matches closely...

    The high sugar model did not prove to be a good model of obesity

    Excess sugar consumption doesn't necessarily make you fat, if you have sufficient nutrients to use the carbs. "but the daily caloric intake was higher in the HS group in relation to the C and HFHS groups (HS: 92 ± 2.0 vs. C: 79.2 ± 2.6 and HFHS: 77.3 ± 1.7 kcal/day, p < 0.05)." And yet...

    Foods I Like That Like Me

    I think the fundamental goal of anyone's diet is to find nutritious foods you can afford and easily prepare that you digest well and enjoy. My new goal is to eat only things that meet all of these criteria. I know it seems so obvious, but we often forget the most obvious things because they...

    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...

    High-carb (65%-85%) Diets Therapeutic In Diabetes

    Another myth of mainstream medicine continues to (slowly) crumble. The myth of diabetes as the "sugar disease" may be still alive but the evidence against it is quickly mounting.

    Honey Gets Much Better Results Than Sucrose

    I’ve seen a lot of talk here about using refined table sugar and pop to help increase sugar intake. Not only does this advice go against repeated long term human RCTs, but it just doesn’t make sense when there are much better options such as fruit, fruit juice, and honey. Adding sucrose to the...
