    Hello all I am new here and have been peating for about 5 weeks.

    What I refer to peating is:
    Avoid PUFA
    Drink milk and OJ
    Lots of collagen
    Coffee
    Coconut oil
    Liver/offal multiple times a week (supplement size doses)
    Aspirin
    Niacinamide
    Taurine
    D3
    K2
    B1
    Bag breathing and circular breathing
    (Very occasionally) methylene blue

    Stopped all crazy workouts.
    Stopped keto
    Stopped carnivore stopped ketovore
    Stopped trt

    What I am up against:
    54 y o veteran with PTSD
    Been fed a pharmacy worth of crap over the years including world wide deployable inoculations 3 times.
    268 pound (fat) shadow of my former self
    Diabetic
    High BP
    Insomnia and nightmares
    Lost of body hair extremities and gained on back
    Hard to keep muscle and lose fat
    Genitals seem smaller(?!)

    Trt helped strength not libido and just skyrocketed my estrogen and hematocrit and pushed my blood pressure up. Libido has been nonexistent for years. Even penile injections only work some. Shows you how desperate I have become.

    I was hoping to get some pointers. I really want to get back to former glory (ie. Lean, muscular, great libido, clear headed, just ******* VITAL AGAIN. I moved better with a m60 and Abag the most did with only an AR ) When wife asks, "What happened to the guy I married?" I say, "i ate him, and a cookie!"
    So far on peat i got AM temp to 96.4 from 96.2 and actually sweated a few times after meals (dripping sweat w/o sweaty feet or palms). I wake less as night.

    So, I'm asking for your input diet, exercise, supps (including idealabs stacks) and hacks.

    Please!

    Thanks

    Sully

    Hey Sully,

    Many other people will probably chime in with great ideas.

    Here would be a few thoughts from my 6 years:

    1. The body will compound through repeated exposure of all your new implementations. In other words, hold course with your new plan for months and years.

    2. Temperature and pulse are a great guide at the beginning to understand your metabolic rate. Especially until you get back to 98.6-99 and 84-90 bears per minute. For some people this part can happen sooner, for others it may take longer.

    3. At the beginning it was very hard for me to back off my conventional exercise program 4-6 days a week because I use to eat based on appearance. However, once I finally backed off exercise almost completely, that’s where things really took off. Now I follow gymnastic bodies which involves an immense amount of stretching; each workout is only 10-15 minutes at a time.

    4. Dialing in diet has had the most profound effect in my 6 years. When that slips, regardless of supplementation, I don’t feel right. The key components that have worked for me are:

    ca:p ratio is 1:1 at a minimum - Kalona milk, parmigiano Reggiano cheese, organic ice cream

    Eat sugar and minimize starch - orange juice, milk, ice cream, cane sugar

    Eat gelatin and minimize meat - Great Lakes

    Eat saturated fat and minimize PUFA - coconut oil, dark chocolate, butter, cheese, milk, ice cream

    Eat digestive foods - Raw carrot, bamboo shoots, mushrooms, and coffee

    Bubbly water quenches my thirst

    Epsom salt baths - 1-7 days a week with 1-4 lbs in Luke warm water

    Enjoy the process my friend and use this forum for support. Be easy on yourself especially if you come across points of confusion. Many people here go through their tough moments figuring it out. Again, do your best to enjoy the process.

    Detox queen here - I am certain I will get my usual eye rolls. I say clean out the gunk while changing your protocol . Do a Master Cleanse, ( even if you can only do a few days at a time , get a whole series of colonics, get your coffee game on ( coffee enemas and drinking coffee. ) Start tracking your glucose levels if you arent already. I agree on all of the above advice however , I do think that timing of meals is important, ( like not a lot of grazing ) - yes on Epsom Salt and I really think yoga is great mixed with most of Dr Peats recommendations. It not only seems to lower cortisol , but is really like bodyweight work and breath work and detox and stretching all in one. It really is the perfect body practice as long as you are taking it seriously and not thinking of it as a " work out " . Do level 1 and restorative at first. I would go easy on the coconut oil and tons of sugar. But thats just me. I love my sugar in my coffee and with meals. I am not an orange juice fan but lots on here are. I say work on cleaning out your liver and colon big time and then you will feel the effects of your new diet and lifestyle faster and wont be further gunking up your system. If you have fatty liver , and you add the Peat way of eating on top of it .... well.... it might get weird or at least it did for me. I had a way toxic liver from taking a whole huge round of meds for my knee - so when I started Peating my liver could not handle it. When I started doing a lot of detox work , it made a huge diff, especially with hormones. I am also a huge fan of all the testing you can get to have a baseline of your levels in general . Magnesium and Calcium o rama for your PTSD and I like a product from Source Naturals - B1 that has mag and succinate acid with it. It is a chill pill. I pulse dose Metformin but most on here will tell you that it is rat poison. It really works wonders on my blood sugar and has done some hormone balancing for me. I am a fan of it but again, Dr Peat doesnt like it. I also think that D3/Ks is really important in healthy doses.... I take a liquid that is from Amazon .. it helps a lot with PTSD and mood. Enjoy your journey and research like a mofo... it's fun! xx

    Good luck to you. Seems like you have started on the right track. Still, - a carrot a day keeps the doctor away....

    I would personally also do some exercise, but not too exhaustive, some sit ups, push ups a couple of times a day. Do som walking. Got to activate muscles in order to induce your natural autophagy.

    Will make you gain more fat. Stay away.

    Drop all supplements.

    Skim milk + date/sugarcane syrup diet only 3 months. Write down every change in your body all time. Don't dive into supplement that soon. Remember you were able to perform without them. 3 months of this regime will give you more info about your next steps.

    Low fat fixed my ED.

    If you have habits of chronic hyperventilation, I think it can make a big difference to address CO2. Good CO2 levels play a role in calming nerves, as well as important for circulation and general metabolism. You can try bag-breathing and see if you notice any improvement from it (I don't have that habit).
    For me, the low-hanging fruit was:
    • Replacing mouth breathing with nasal at (nearly) all times (mechanic support at night).
    • Getting diaphragm moving instead of thorax for breathing at rest.
    • Practicing relaxed slow breathing.
    • Doing some controlled breathing while walking to get up a bit of air-hunger now and then.
    There are threads about various methods people have tried.
