I got some 10% mf yogurt today and it's made with whole milk, creme, milk protein concentrate, and bacterial cultures. I've been struggling to get enough calories so this yogurt and whole milk with every meal and snack are my only options. My... (more)

I think you have to differentiate the two common forms of CLA. There's the t10 c12 form that may increase blood sugar: http://care.diabetesjournals.org/content/25/9/1516.long http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12370214 But there's also the c9... (more)

As a result of cowpooling a grass-fed animal, I've been reading a lot about conjugated linoleic acid. However, I'm confused about whether CLA is a saturated, monounsaturated, or polyunsaturated fat? I'm particularly curious about whether it gets... (more)

I'm trying to find a CLA supplement that is based on vaccenic or rumenic acid, the more beneficial forms of CLA. This would be in contrast to all of the CLA supplements I've found, which come from some soy extract.

Pastured (100% grass-fed) beef and butter will give you lot's of CLA, as well as other good stuff.

I'll have the opportunity to purchase a whole pastured lamb soon, and was wondering about the CLA content of the meat versus say... Beef. They both work out to be around the same price per pound. Since I've read that Sheep milk has a higher CLA... (more)

I'll start by saying that I don't thinks its really a good idea to choose what you eat on the basis of any single nutrient, however beneficial it may be. Food like beef or lamb are complex containing many different nutrients in varying amounts,... (more)
