Ray Peat Questions
Hi guys, how much retinol from liver do i need to be getting to prevent acne from drinking raw milk? According to Ray Peat and other members on here such as Cliff and Korion, high vitamin A can help acne sufferers... But doesn't dairy... (more)
About 3 ounces of liver a week. Too much liver can actually make things worse. Also, your thyroid needs to be working well. Low vitamin A is a frequent cause of acne but not the only one.
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)
There seem to be two schools of thought on this. Ray Peat suggests taking with food, especially with a meal containing muscle meat, to balance out the amino acids. Others recommend taking on an empty stomach which supposedly makes the collagen... (more)
Does anyone know the exact specifications of the diet i'm getting quite confused, I know cliff has helped other users before. Not how much muscle meat to limit quantities of fruit, why baking soda? etc
Hello. I've been reading some more Ray Peat lately, and am noticing that a lot paleo foods are high in omega 6. Avocado, nuts, eggs, pork, poultry and fish. I used to be under the impression that whole food sources do not pose a problem, but now... (more)
I thought these Peatarians were nuts, but sure enough, eating one meal of my usual amount of carbs as apples instead of rice (2 med Tango apples instead of ~ 1 cup basmati rice) has raised my temperature a full degree and finally given me the... (more)
Does anyone here avoid all unsaturated fat (including omega 3) ala Ray Peat? There's some pretty interesting research into it and now that I think about it I was consuming loads of the stuff (CLO, salmon, nuts) I'm hoping Peat is the path back;... (more)
Okay people, I'm having a bit of a problem, and I am in need of some instant advice here... For starters, I'm on a paleo diet/ray peat diet. My diet consists of grass fed beef, potatoes, some fruit, veggies every once in a while, chicken,... (more)
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.
lol@tags "My body must burn fat for fuel, ketones are humans ultimate source of energy, I must never dare eat a piece of fruit, Dr.Robert lustig has deemed that forbidden!!!!"
This guy is a genius...read his work if you want to be truly enlightened....or u cud just stick w/ paleo and force urself through unnecessary suffering (omg i can't have ice cream, there's sugar and dairy) even though your body is telling you to... (more)
I've been off birth control pills for a year, at first I had a lot of hair loss, cycles were all over the place and my skin looked pretty terrible, but that seems to be fixing itself now which is great. I've read a lot of Ray Peat's work on the... (more)
Apologise that this isn't strictly a paleo question, though paleo is such an umbrella term these days that I challenge anyone to clearly define it... The question is has anyone else got anything to add or support my observations here? because I'm... (more)
Any and all store bought pastuerized OJ I have had rips my stomach up too. Then I tried buying oranges and juicing them at home......no problems, and it tastes SOOOO much better.
With the acceptance of dairy products slowly growing within the community - as well as my own newfound interested in some of Peat's ideas - some questions have been nagging at me. For quite a while it's been clear that there is at least some... (more)
Danny Roddy just finished his new book The Peat Whisperer and I for one am really curious to give it a read. I know many people on PH are skeptical about Peat's recommendations, but I find alternative viewpoints interesting, and am intrigued to... (more)
so jaminet & others say some amount of carbs (glucose) is needed for immune health. we all know that active people need more carbs, and probably even plenty of fructose to stay healthy. yes, ray peat makes plenty of sense when you try out his... (more)
Okay, so I've found this: http://forum.lowcarber.org/showthread.php?t=419742 And I get most of it. My question is though about the fructose. Fruit seems to always aggravate my reflux if I eat it for more than a couple of days. Also, I have no... (more)
Should I try it for My acne and skin problems? Can anyone write a list of foods allowed and not allowed on this diet, having trouble finding information about it and how to do it properly. My sister also had acne before she went on BC, so I'm... (more)
A common thing around here seems to be avoidance of polyunsaturated fatty acids. This is a pretty strong theme in Ray Peat's writing. My question is about how far this should go when applied to children. Given that the brain contains a large... (more)
Been plugging in all the Ray Peat staples to cronometer, vitamins E and K seem to be the only ones not making the cut. Best sources when following the recommendatinons of Ray Peat?
On one of the East West Healing Podcasts, Ray Peat talks about keto acids. He says they are great for the brain, and can easily be converted to amino acids. As a therapeutic aid, he recommends centrifugal juicing of potatoes (to remove starch)... (more)
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 was just listening to some Peatarian podcasts and heard a caller question about fructose : he said he improved his digestion a lot by eating pure fructose, and it made him tolerate all kinds of carbs like orange juice and soda. Now I've... (more)
I've been following Ray Peat's advice pretty closely the past 2 weeks due to thyroid issues and am feeling a lot better. Staples include orange juice, 2% milk, eggs, some cheese, shellfish, some beef, potatoes, etc. Also will throw in some... (more)
I've been doing a lot of research on Ray Peat's and 180degree health (Matt Stone)'s stuff, among experimenting with other things (paleo, GAPS, WAPF, raw primal, ray peat, RRARF, etc) over the past few years. I want to learn the best way to lose... (more)
I'd say that there's no one way and what you might at one point think is THE way for you is subject to change over time. Eat real foods, minimize stress, maximize play and movement, sleep well. Tinker as needed.
