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)
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?

This has been asked before, in particular by ROB (here), and there was some good discussion around it. The general consensus was that Ray Peat is something of a whack-job with interesting ideas. But his name has been popping up more, recently.... (more)
"Dr. Peat examining plaque build-up in the arteries?" Yes, low thyroid function is a cause. Broda Barnes wrote a whole book about it. (this is a comment to sifter, I can't comment on his post for some reason)
