Things I would consider are... 1. PUFA: You get 40+g a day of PUFA. This will cause excessive inflammation, thyroid problems, etc. I would definitly work on lowring this! 2. Protein: You get too much protein in my opinion. Specific amino acids... (more)

The obvious answer on how to get off sugar would be to stop eating it. Could you clarify what you mean by sugar? Did you eat candy or did you eat fruit? I got lean eating a lot of fruit. I don't think giving up 'sugar' is some sort of... (more)

About a year ago I ran across an article (e.g. pubmed or paleo blog) or study that discussed some mice that starved to death while remaining obese. Their bodies "refused" to give up the fat. I cannot find this study and I'm wondering if anyone... (more)

it could be the glycine in skin and tendons and cartilage, or other substances present only in cartilage (chondroitin etc.). But it could also be vitamin K2, which is more abundant in chicken than in other meats. Whole chicken is underappreciated... (more)

Rice or potatoes… covered with butter or olive oil (literally tablespoons, not teaspoons as you have logged above). Nutrient density is great and all, but calories are king when activity levels are high.
