No, I haven't seen it, but I call horseshit.  You can easily disprove this yourself.  Go on a fast.  Whenever you feel hungry ingest a teaspoon of MCT oil, or a slice of Kerrygold.  You'll find yourself unable to look at food... (more)

By themselves, no. If you're coming from a place where your just starting, the previous diet was a mess and you have leaky gut, eating lots of starchy veggies may inhibit the healing of leaky gut. I'd avoid them for a little bit of time and... (more)

Sounds like you may be in ketosis. If you're low carb trying to lose weight, that's a good thing. Your appetite drops (so much for the "food reward theory") and you may find it easier to eat fewer calories. You get used to the taste and feeling... (more)
