    Wow cool article - it’s been 2 days and I’m still chomping through it. I like the way she writes even if the intro was way too verbose.

    I’ve not looked into the rice diet before but seems there’s some substance to it. Not sure I could do it without salt though and I’m not sure why it would be excluded. The thought of dropping protein out would make me nervous but I need to look into it more.

    Thanks for sharing it!

    Will do, thanks. Initially, I’m thinking 10-15% fat on a 3000 calorie diet, so about 35-40g.

    I don't think it would apply to small plants or plants that don't have a sizeable trunk, or maybe it does, but it's just that there isn't much of a filter to fully filter the toxins out before it reaches the fruit, or the nut, or the seed.
    That's a nice plan. I may have to slowly get to that. I would need to start with more protein, or else I get hungry quickly.

    I just realized I forgot the gelatin/collagen, of course... another Peaty option!

    Sounds fine. To achieve benefits on low fat, fat should be 20% or under. So what you are aiming for sounds good.

    I don't know that you can really call them "Peat Friendly Ideas" There are four dietary interventions in the article, and one of them, the Swank diet that upped PUFAs, runs counter to one of Peat's central ideas.

    Pritikin's Dietary intervention, as mentioned in the article, lasted only 26 days. Kempner's Rice Diet was always a temporary intervention diet (though it did likely result in PUFA and Iron reduction). I have only seen Peat mention Kempner once, in this article, and it wasn't in the most favorable of lights- Salt, energy, metabolic rate, and longevity So, those would be two temporary dietary measures, which could indeed help with some issues Peat talks about, but I don't think he would necessarily recommend in the long term, or even generally in the short term.

    The last diet discussed, the Morrison Trial, had confounders when compared to the control group (with weight loss being a big one), and while the intervention is in line with some of Peat's ideas, other parts, such as permitting breads and cereals, and restricting foods like liver and egg yolks, are counter to some of Peat's suggestions.

    This is an awesome article! Does anyone know if there's a Part 2?

    Haven't found it. Maybe she took it off. It's been some years since the 1st one at least.
