This point is absolutely incredible! Does anybody have a source for that?-In1939, the average wealthy adult male in the US ate over 5000 calories per day (and they didn’t seem to have a concept of “eating too much”) of mostly flour, butter, sugar, potatoes, some beef and pork, lots of milk. (They ate peaty.) If you choose pro-metabolic foods, you can eat way more calories than the current recommendations. Back then, people didn’t do any cardio and were still way leaner, despite eating more calories.
He's summarizing the interview, so that would be the source. You might want to check Brad's blog for the studies he talks about. Peat says this was basically his experience.This point is absolutely incredible! Does anybody have a source for that?
Just think about the implications regarding how far the general public has already degnerated and how less productive and intelligent we have probably already become.
I have a habit of reading a lot of old books, some of which were fairly popular back in the day within the educated parts of society, and it always amazes me what level of basic understanding of various areas is assumed from the reader and how much more complex the average sentence structure was back then. The average high school graduate 70 years ago proabaly had the general intelligence/metabolic energy of the average phd graduate of today.

It might not be as simple as "choosing pro metabolic foods." It's probably a matter of eliminating a significant amount of PUFA from your tissues. I would think the results of both the William Brown experiment and Walter Kemper's rice diet (they could apparently eat sugar freely, too) show this can be done in a relatively short time. Some of the before and after pictures of both men and women are staggering, and the weight loss happened in under a year-
It's basically a very low fat diet, similar to what the vegan durianrider is promoting.Tank, where can I find more info on that diet?
Can a man go very low fat indefinitely? What are the consequences?They mentioned the source in the interview, but I was not able to find a free, full version on the internet:

The underlying principle is to eat less fat than you metabolize at rest during a day. You can eat as much carbs as you want because de novo lipogenesis from glucose/fructose can be neglected in regards to (fat) weight gain. That's why all fruitarians look like meth addicts, which makes the keto crowd look like idiots. According to their perspective they should all be overweight diabetics.
It sounds like the Kempner diet.Can a man go very low fat indefinitely? What are the consequences?
