Oh I see. In that case, I'm getting two completely different things mixed up. Yea, if you eat nothing but protein, that isn't going to cut it. You can't really get much energy from that. You need fat to go with it. Well if that is what he was talking about that supports what I was saying more than ...

Actually, our guts are in bad shape. Many auto-immune deseases may be linked to gut flora, either a direct cause or agrivated by it. Diet plays a big role as does excess antibiotics in factory meat. Medically prescribed antibiotics are relatively known qtys but they're a small part of what we actua...

No, its not that much of a problem in India. Isn't it curious. I suspect the reason is that our guts are not in as bad a shape as in western countries because we grew up on mother's milk. You don't think most people in the West grew up on mother's milk? Bottle feeding started fading from fashion in...

We are practically carnivores, but not obligate carnivores. We do not convert enough amino-acids to protein to survive just on muscle meat. There are strict limits to how much proteins we can digest safely. In this section I have quoted again, you are right on the first two, but the 2nd is wrong. T...

... I had gone down to 160, then eased back up, because of the symptoms. What are the symptoms? (I think Jungledoc already asked this.) Mostly low blood pressure, low temperature. Dizziness. Sometimes I will feel faint when getting up from bed. This happens when I do low carb and exercise together....

And I'd also like to point out that I've taken entire months off from grains (When dieting, I remove most grains, not because they are bad - but because I can eat a whole loaf of bread and still be hungry.. just not that filling) I did not feel either better or worse while consuming or not consumin...

Do you know people who eat a lot, but don't gain any fat? How do you explain those guys. Faster metabolism, more active both in a sedentary setting (foot tapping, etc.), more NEAT in general. They simply burn more calories, or equal calories, than they eat. Also, most 'hardgainers' don't eat nearly...

Form me, this would be a heck of a lot of trouble and expense to just to indulge your odd theory. If you want to do this yourself, I have no problem with that. If you want to fund a large double blind experiment, go ahead. If you have any links to real literature, let me know. Meanwhile, I'm just g...

As for the calories thing, I'm referring to the way we reference kcal when referring to humans. Tons of scientific evidence has shown that when it comes to losing weight - a caloric deficit is required (not counting glycogen/water loss). That is my beef with the epidemiological studies posing as re...

I am 5'9", with 170pounds, nearly 25%body fat. Are you a man or woman? Are you satisfied with that weight body fat percentage? I think that body fat is rather high for a man not quite so high for a woman. I'm a 50 year old woman and I'd like to get my body fat down to 24%, which, from what I unders...

I am trying to increase fruits and raw vegetables in my diet, to reduce oxidative stress, and giving rest to my adrenals, but I don't feel like eating them much, so I don't know if that is really healthy. Huh? What does "giving rest to my adrenals" mean? This sounds silly to me. Should I give rest ...

Gluconeogenesis is very thermogenic. It is possibly the reason why Carnivores don't have much brains, even though they have simpler guts. Read the Expensive Tissue Hypothesis and Klieber's law. What? We practically ARE carnivores. Look at a comparison of digestive systems. The denatured protein of ...

@NightFall.

You might want to read the following article which explains the mechanism of WGA attack on our body.

I am still searching for those papers :-(.

I'm at 10.5% bodyfat and 210lbs at 5'9" when I got it done Monday. The diet is a cyclical diet, meaning I only eat like this for 3 1/2 days before doing a carb-up. I'm currently eating 300g protein + any trace carbs/fats from meats/green veggies. Either way, the point of increased protein intake is...
