    “All You Have To Do To Lose Weight. Turn Fat Into CO2 & H2O

    Just ran across this TEDx vid on YouTube. It started out sounding like it could be a very Peat-like explanation to fat loss. However, the final take was “move more, eat less and breath”. Are there nuggets to take away from this? He says the #1 question he gets is “can we just sit around and...

    Personalized Diets Based On DNA/genome Analysis Are A Failure

    I am sure by now everybody has heard of the much-heralded approach of the so-called "personalized medicine" - a world in which every person will be treated uniquely based on the complete analysis of their genome/DNA. From specific drugs and dosage, to interventions like radiation, diet and...

    1600IU Of Vit E Safe During Fat Loss?

    I have gained some weight, would like to lose 3-4kg slowly by still doing RP diet, but having fruits instead of pure sugars like honey/brown sugar etc. I hear polyunsaturated fat is the issue here as burning fat leads to more PUFA in the blood. But can the harmful effects of PUFA be negated by...

Clearly it works for some of those 801010 fans. What about all fruit with just a bit of protein from...

    I've been reading about Hepcidin, a pro hormone discovered recently in 2000. It is the hormone that regulates Iron absorption and elimination in the body. There is a lot of evidence via Ray Peat that most degenerative conditions involve excess iron, either directly or indirectly. Hepcidin is...
