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)

Having attempted to read his articles I quickly found that I'd rather go get my teeth drilled then continue on reading. That doesn't mean that it invalidates his theories, it just means I can't figure out what he is all about. I'm pretty darn... (more)

Have heard him mentioned on the forums. Had a look at his site and couldn't find much to say what sort of diet he endorses. Anyone know what this guy is about? Is he paleo or anti-paleo?

Hello Paleo's I am a 23 year old male who has been about 80% paleo since 2010. In the past two years I noticed itchy dandruff followed by hair loss in the past year or so. I had a thick head of hair up until I was about 22. Its super depressing... (more)

You'd need to have a read up on the SCD diet. SCD disallows starches, because they're complex sugars. Complex sugars are more difficult to digest, ending up becoming food for the gut bacteria. Fruits, raw honey are ok on SCD, but tubers and rice... (more)

This sounds typical to me. Many people switch to paleo relatively abruptly. After decades of adaptation to a different diet paleo is expected to immediately give perfect health and energy. That is never true, as far as i have seen. The quicker one... (more)

Re: Following Ray Peat - In a word? Don't. I tried his stuff, I read it all, and the references. It's pretty bogus, he exaggerates wildly. Take aways from Peat's work and a full 30 day trial on his plan? Seafood like shrimp is great stuff... (more)

Haven't heard much about his opinion on wheat/gluten? Does he see it as benign?

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 know I have heard this discussed, but after TONS of reading and podcasts, it all gets blurry. Its something to do with the increased milk/calcium speeding your metabolism up and burning through your vitamin A -or something like that. Watch Josh... (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!

There's copious amounts of discussions of Peat on PH. Search. Or Google it with the additional term... "site:paleohacks.com" (The built-in search function does suck at times.)

Ray Peat's way of eating makes low carb look like Doody (Well, it is). It's based on improving thyroid and metabolism, not some B.S ideology that we should eat a certain way because our ancestors did. Inb4 butthurt.

As someone who follows a lot of Ray Peat's recommendations, could you please stop trolling. You're not going to get more people to try your approach with these idiotic antics.

I get my omega 3's from fish, as I'm worried about the rancidity of fish oil. I also try to keep total pufas as well as n-6 intake low. Perfect health diet advises against fish oil too, you might want to read what they have to say.
