I thought it was clear that burning fat is better than burning glucose for longevity. Now I read the opposite from a guy that looks quite good for his age of seventy something. Lacking expertise in biochemistry, I have no idea what is right, but... (more)

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.)

What are your vitamin D levels like and how's your vitamin k2 and vitamin A intake? Without either vitamin D or k2 calcium isn't appropriately used in the body and high levels of vitamin A antagonizes calcium's response to vitamin D.

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.

If you want to have a hero, have Jack Lalanne. He looked great in his 90s, and still had dark hair, by the way. He also was very good in sex. He never said he did, but I infer it from what he said (he knew the secret to good sex). And he was... (more)

Greetings! I am slowly adopting some of Ray Peat's ideas toward diet, as doing a traditional paleo diet was resulting in low-energy levels, weight gain, low libido, horrible cramps during period, related thyroid symptoms, etc...and I'm looking... (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)

I think the general Peat recommendations for acne involve getting enough Vitamin A (retinol form) from things like dairy products and liver. To this end, you should ensure that your Vitamin D levels are sufficient too. For more information I... (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.

From what I've read so far, he does seem to have somewhat of an anti-meat stance, which would disqualify him from being considered considered paleo. Again, I've not read a lot yet, I've not yet seen him state that he's actually a vegetarian or... (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?

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.
