This is a long post. I have tried to clarify my opinions. I have tried to find the papers involved, but my opinions have been formed over the years, and have not been able to find much of the papers involved. I do go more logically than by studies. If it makes sense to me, as in it does not contradi...

I also do low fat, along with it. Pretty much just eat at a 70/15/15 ratio. You mean that you eat 70% protein. WOW. That is not low carb at all. As most of the protein will convert to glucose. Do you have a lot of fat to lose? You do know that our body has a very limited capacity to convert protein...

I don't doubt that many of you give advice/information based on scientific research. I just kind of got 'set off' by the post from the person I quoted because it is mostly alarmist hogwash, which is one of my biggest pet peeves. Oh and I also want to point out - that when I diet, I also do low carb...

Also, the reason for keeping fat low is to keep you from having excess calories stored as bodyfat. It's actually fairly difficult for carbs to be stored as body fat, from what I understand, even when you're overeating them. I think where the fat gain can come from, if I've read correctly, is that b...

Try to get a Microwave with an Inverter. Cooking at a low intensity provides better cooking. Normal Microwaves cannot do that.

I'm sure that's why nuts seem to be ok where corn oil, for example, is not. 3-4 grams came from Stephan Guyenet's blog http://wholehealthsource.blogspot.com/ It seems to be the amount in the pre-industrial diet. Edit: I read it wrong, it's "4% of calories". In a 2000 cal diet that would be 80 calor...

Anybody wanting to lose weight easily, must take a long hard look at the paleolithic principle. Eat what they ate ie eat natural food that paleolithic people ate (avoid neolithic foods, eg grains, refined oil and sugar). Do not skip on fat from healthy meat (grass fed), but avoid the fat on factory ...

Following is totally inverse of the diet advice that you may have been used to. So brace yourself. But it will fix your visceral fat. It did fix mine. To target visceral fat you must understand why it happens. It happens when fats are stored under the influence of insulin. Now when does the fats get...

Why not add a lot of fat, in the form of butter, ghee, lard etc. It is the densest form of energy that is there. You will be able to add a lot of energy to your diet. I think you are eating way too much protein. Using protein for energy in my opinion is not a good thing. Adding fat will balance that...

I think liver function is of paramount importance. I don't know if Turmeric or Mustard have anything to do with it. We in India use quite a lot of Turmeric and Mustard oil. They must do something to sustain a vegetarian lifestyle, but what exactly is not known. They are both anti-fungal and anti-bac...

Devadiva You should get your Liver tested. By the looks of it, it seems to be in pretty bad shape. Get a liver function test. To fix the problem reduce Omega 6 as much as possible, by removing all refined oils. Have only grass fed butter/ghee. Also add enough fish oil, to get a better than 1:1 Omega...

I do try mutton (goat meat) sometimes. I do like mutton curry quite a lot. But most restaurants will serve cooked in Refined oil, with lots and lots of gravy. Also the portions for Mutton tend to be very little. So you try to only pick out mutton pieces from the curry, its going to be a very small m...

There are three components to energy. Carbs, Fat, and Protein. Carbs are an energy source that our body does not prefer. They convert to glucose, and our body cannot hold too much glucose at a time. It releases insulin to get rid of the excess glucose as soon as possible. Possibly by converting it t...

I also like liver. Its best with onions and lots of fat. Be careful while cooking though, it doesn't cook well on high heat.
