I think most people are way too obsessed with refrigeration. It certainly has it's advantages for long term storage, but I certainly wouldn't worry about leaving leftovers out for a few hours, and then eating them. I do what you are suggesting on... (more)

Burbot liver also has high K content, not sure how much of it is K2 tho. Its also very rich in vitamin D, more than cod liver.

Your initial weight loss is fast and then it will trim down. However, if you are overcoming really bad eating and exercise habits. Rejoice at your initial success and let more come. Nevertheless, it slows to about 1.5 pounds a week, or thereabouts. (more)

Yes. They are packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. As other posters said, keep an eye on overall carbs. Be aware that they might turn your poop or urine red. No harm, but it can be startling. A great way to eat beets is as beet... (more)

Is it safe to eat copious amounts of bacon? What about the sodium?

A2c38be4c54c91a15071f82f14cac0b3
Mscott 0 · February 12, 2013 at 5:42 AM

Supposed strikes against it is it's omega-6, sodium, and nitrosamines, but these are probably not in the amounts worth worrying about unless bacon is all you eat. So yes, i'd say it's safe.
