-Dairy, meat and fruit are the core of his diet. -He believes in consuming lots of gelatin and limiting muscle meats. -States protein must be balanced with sugar, according to him protein alone lowers blood sugar so it must be eaten with... (more)
He's a natural person to become popular considering the promotion of high-protein diets and misinterpretation of research on fructose. The truth is that there is lots of evidence high protein diets can be harmful and no evidence that fruit is... (more)
Hey guys, I'm very interested in Ray Peat's work, although I'm at a college cafeteria. I have access to conventional milk, sugar, OJ, eggs in unlimited amounts. Would it be possible to devise a plan without things like shellfish and... (more)
Have heard him mentioned on the forums. Had a look at his site and couldn't find much to say what sort of diet he endorses. Anyone know what this guy is about? Is he paleo or anti-paleo?
I thought it was clear that burning fat is better than burning glucose for longevity. Now I read the opposite from a guy that looks quite good for his age of seventy something. Lacking expertise in biochemistry, I have no idea what is right, but... (more)
There's copious amounts of discussions of Peat on PH. Search. Or Google it with the additional term... "site:paleohacks.com" (The built-in search function does suck at times.)
Has anyone noticed an improvement in their IBS/general digestion after eschewing starch? I have gone about a day and a half since quitting the 'safe starches' of white rice and sweet potatoes and I feel lighter, less bloated I've been really... (more)
Ray Peat's way of eating makes low carb look like Doody (Well, it is). It's based on improving thyroid and metabolism, not some B.S ideology that we should eat a certain way because our ancestors did. Inb4 butthurt.
As someone who follows a lot of Ray Peat's recommendations, could you please stop trolling. You're not going to get more people to try your approach with these idiotic antics.
Greetings! I am slowly adopting some of Ray Peat's ideas toward diet, as doing a traditional paleo diet was resulting in low-energy levels, weight gain, low libido, horrible cramps during period, related thyroid symptoms, etc...and I'm looking... (more)
Been plugging in all the Ray Peat staples to cronometer, vitamins E and K seem to be the only ones not making the cut. Best sources when following the recommendatinons of Ray Peat?
he says the gluten is linked to skin problems and is a gut irritant. If you have a really high metabolism and superb digestion he thinks you could get away with eating it moderately.
I've been following Ray Peat's advice pretty closely the past 2 weeks due to thyroid issues and am feeling a lot better. Staples include orange juice, 2% milk, eggs, some cheese, shellfish, some beef, potatoes, etc. Also will throw in some... (more)
Recently I read an article by Ray Peat describing the almost limitless negative effects of lactic acid on the human body: http://raypeat.com/articles/aging/altitude-mortality.shtml Peat does not consume any fermented foods except cheese for this... (more)
it's working! not perfect but my mood and digestion are more stable than they have been in a long while. this is what i'm eating regularly. at least 400 cals of brown rice syrup/day mixed with shredded coconut and/or trader joe's gum-free lite... (more)
I see many people claiming benefits from consuming orange juice, so it seems like this Peat craze is really catching on. Anyways what have your experiences with it been? Have your triglycerides climbed, do you have more energy, did you gain... (more)
I do not. I love real oranges, yet I only have the real fruit, not the juice. I think having too much fructose is not good for your health, and orange juice has lots of fructose!
This has been asked before, in particular by ROB (here), and there was some good discussion around it. The general consensus was that Ray Peat is something of a whack-job with interesting ideas. But his name has been popping up more, recently.... (more)
Hi, I am new to doing paleo and I am trying to makes sense of all the various recommendations and best practices. After reading a bunch of different articles imploring me to take fish oil, I started researching on this board and via google... (more)
I get my omega 3's from fish, as I'm worried about the rancidity of fish oil. I also try to keep total pufas as well as n-6 intake low. Perfect health diet advises against fish oil too, you might want to read what they have to say.
Hello Paleo's I am a 23 year old male who has been about 80% paleo since 2010. In the past two years I noticed itchy dandruff followed by hair loss in the past year or so. I had a thick head of hair up until I was about 22. Its super depressing... (more)
I started a very similar paleo diet a few years ago and went completely cold turkey, and found myself after a month with a rather interesting bald spot at the hairdressers, (she was shit scared to show me, thinking I was going to blame her, and... (more)
