Ray Peat Questions
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)
Hello. I've been reading some more Ray Peat lately, and am noticing that a lot paleo foods are high in omega 6. Avocado, nuts, eggs, pork, poultry and fish. I used to be under the impression that whole food sources do not pose a problem, but now... (more)
I thought these Peatarians were nuts, but sure enough, eating one meal of my usual amount of carbs as apples instead of rice (2 med Tango apples instead of ~ 1 cup basmati rice) has raised my temperature a full degree and finally given me the... (more)
Does anyone here avoid all unsaturated fat (including omega 3) ala Ray Peat? There's some pretty interesting research into it and now that I think about it I was consuming loads of the stuff (CLO, salmon, nuts) I'm hoping Peat is the path back;... (more)
Okay people, I'm having a bit of a problem, and I am in need of some instant advice here... For starters, I'm on a paleo diet/ray peat diet. My diet consists of grass fed beef, potatoes, some fruit, veggies every once in a while, chicken,... (more)
What are your vitamin D levels like and how's your vitamin k2 and vitamin A intake? Without either vitamin D or k2 calcium isn't appropriately used in the body and high levels of vitamin A antagonizes calcium's response to vitamin D.
I've been off birth control pills for a year, at first I had a lot of hair loss, cycles were all over the place and my skin looked pretty terrible, but that seems to be fixing itself now which is great. I've read a lot of Ray Peat's work on the... (more)
Apologise that this isn't strictly a paleo question, though paleo is such an umbrella term these days that I challenge anyone to clearly define it... The question is has anyone else got anything to add or support my observations here? because I'm... (more)
Any and all store bought pastuerized OJ I have had rips my stomach up too. Then I tried buying oranges and juicing them at home......no problems, and it tastes SOOOO much better.
Danny Roddy just finished his new book The Peat Whisperer and I for one am really curious to give it a read. I know many people on PH are skeptical about Peat's recommendations, but I find alternative viewpoints interesting, and am intrigued to... (more)
Okay, so I've found this: http://forum.lowcarber.org/showthread.php?t=419742 And I get most of it. My question is though about the fructose. Fruit seems to always aggravate my reflux if I eat it for more than a couple of days. Also, I have no... (more)
Should I try it for My acne and skin problems? Can anyone write a list of foods allowed and not allowed on this diet, having trouble finding information about it and how to do it properly. My sister also had acne before she went on BC, so I'm... (more)
Does anyone eat this salad? It's basically raw grated carrots with coconut oil, olive oil and salt He argues that that combination is very beneficial to the gut so I'm hoping it can help me. I think there is an argument also that they are good... (more)
I have a coconut oil allergy and can only use the smallest amount at a time, so for me, animal fats, avocado oil, et al, are what I use. So no, I have not had his salad. But.. Carrot salad is something that I really enjoy especially in the hot... (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?
On one of the East West Healing Podcasts, Ray Peat talks about keto acids. He says they are great for the brain, and can easily be converted to amino acids. As a therapeutic aid, he recommends centrifugal juicing of potatoes (to remove starch)... (more)
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 was just listening to some Peatarian podcasts and heard a caller question about fructose : he said he improved his digestion a lot by eating pure fructose, and it made him tolerate all kinds of carbs like orange juice and soda. Now I've... (more)
Okey, I'm seriously surprised I could'nt find a question on this already. Am I the only one? I simply have to work out in the morning or early on the day (at latest 3 p.m), if I want to get tired in the evening or not lay in the bed for hours and... (more)
Danny Roddy article Ok, I haven't heard of this guy before, though from what I see, he did paleo for a while and then decided it wasn't working. The interesting thing about the article is the claims that low blood sugar/fat metabolism is... (more)
EDIT : I changed to title to Ray Peat experiences? since there was some confusion about the previous title (Ray Peat failures). So, what are you experiences with Ray Peat? What symptoms improved, what got worse? Is there anyone who failed on... (more)
EDIT : This thread is NOT about smoking. I just read through http://gutsense.org and came across this : Does smoking cause constipation? No, not really... Actually, smoking stimulates moving the bowels because the continuous swallowing... (more)
Hey all, Reflecting on my past I realise that the only clear skin I have achieved was when I was on minocycline. I have tried lots of diets, a few different antibiotics with varying improvements but Minocycline was king and totally clear. I... (more)
Ok, I got into ray peat via Cliff, and I've been following RP protocol religiously. well, at the beginning, I made some mistakes here and there but I think now I'm doing it pretty well on it. I eat melons, OJ, low fat or skim milk, carrots, eggs... (more)
I know many posters, like Cliff, follow a high fruit diet and seem to be thriving on it. I personally consume a lot of carbohydrate too, but most of it comes from low fructose starch. I have always avoided fructose because I have been under the... (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)
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!
