Ray Peat Questions
I have imposed upon myself what seems like an encyclopedia's worth of information recently on hypothyroidism since learning about my lab numbers. Now, I'm not saying I've retained it all, or even the majority of it, but it's amazing how the... (more)
So i found a relatively good doctor to communicate with out of TX. Long way from me but whatever. I cant afford doctors visits and hormonal/blood work ups so this is what i got. Anyways I talked to him about my past. FWIW, i suffered anorexia and... (more)
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)
I've been playing around with some of Ray Peat's and Matt Stone's ideas lately with pretty good success. My diets still paleo but is much higher in fruit and carbs. I've done some intentional over feeding and some supplementation with gelatin to... (more)
-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)
I reread Ray Peat's article on Gelatin. http://raypeat.com/articles/articles/gelatin.shtml I have been supplementation with gelatin 10-20g for the past two days, but haven't noted any effects. Someone commented to me tonight, though, that I... (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)
There seem to be two schools of thought on this. Ray Peat suggests taking with food, especially with a meal containing muscle meat, to balance out the amino acids. Others recommend taking on an empty stomach which supposedly makes the collagen... (more)
Does anyone know the exact specifications of the diet i'm getting quite confused, I know cliff has helped other users before. Not how much muscle meat to limit quantities of fruit, why baking soda? etc
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)
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.
lol@tags "My body must burn fat for fuel, ketones are humans ultimate source of energy, I must never dare eat a piece of fruit, Dr.Robert lustig has deemed that forbidden!!!!"
This guy is a genius...read his work if you want to be truly enlightened....or u cud just stick w/ paleo and force urself through unnecessary suffering (omg i can't have ice cream, there's sugar and dairy) even though your body is telling you to... (more)
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)
My diet : I am paleo-peatatarian, eat a lot of semi-skimmed milk, strained orange juice, salt, coconut oil, liver, oysters, coffee, and some gelatin. Also some chocolate from time to time. I supplement fat-solubles, eggshell calcium, niacinamide,... (more)
I watched the video Danny Roddy put up of Ray Peat. It was very interesting in it's own right, and also sent me off looking for Gilbert Ling and Mae Wan Ho. So, I am looking at Ling's stuff, trying to figure out if it fits reality better than the... (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.
