Re: Hello from Israel

I know some people don't like vitamin and mineral tablets but the nutrients in many foods have fallen over the last 100 years or so, according to some estimates. I take them to be on the safe side and also because my diet is not as good as it could be. Some people like vitamin and mineral supplemen...

Re: 2 months into living vegan and still havent dropped lbs!

Fruit is awesome. This! and Ducati actually has a point. When comparing satiety between a food blended or intact the intact one always wins. This has been done on apple and products of apple (fiber enriched juice, regular juice, apple slices or apple sauce) and the result is pretty conclusive. Havi...

Re: 2 months into living vegan and still havent dropped lbs!

It's all about calories in vs calories out, you won't drop weight by simply going vegan. Try reducing the amount of oil and nuts/seeds because they are very energy dense foods that is easy to overeat. Stick to veggies, fruits, intact whole grains (not flour products like bread) and tubers.

Re: Intermittent fasting

That's really cool to hear dude! I actually stopped doing IF because of work but I really appreciate what the experience taught me about hunger, meal frequency etc. Sometimes I skip breakfast when I'm not working and I'm basically only eating 3 times per day and sometimes a bedtime snack. Not worryi...

I cut my own hair for maybe 4-5 years but last time I went to a pro and I will probably do that the next time too.

Re: Is there such a thing as too much good fats?

Yes there is such a thing as too much "good" fats. Oxidative stress, decreased insulin sensitivity, increased expression of endothelial adhesion molecules just to name a few. And regarding what fallen_horse said, a lot of these negative effects is seen with intakes below 40E% from fat. E% ...

Re: Dr. Furnham cures type 2 diabetes, but drug comapny obje

Read some of Dr. McDougalls studies. You need to show me which one(s) because I can't find any that's related to this topic. I think he only published like one or two studies. I'm waiting for the new one on RA though. He also has some "comments" published but I highly doubt that's what yo...

Re: Dr. Furnham cures type 2 diabetes, but drug comapny obje

I used to believe that "Energy in < Energy out" line for a long time. I was fat for most of my life despite tracking my calories and working out extensively. When I switched to a high carb/low fat mostly raw diet, it was the first time in my life I lost weight and kept it off. I eat more ...

Re: Dr. Furnham cures type 2 diabetes, but drug comapny obje

That must be the biggest POS "journal" if they're run on a drug company's dime. Using diet/weight loss/exercise to get diabetics off their medication is not news at all, it's every doctor's ultimate goal. This is one of the reasons peer-reviewed journals are the only credible ones...despi...

Thank god for the group of people here.


If you hate 99% of the people which God created but like 1% of them you should not thank the dude. Be pissed at him instead.

Re: preggers and vega?

I don't know who gives the official guidelines for pregnant women in the US but in the Nordic countries and the rest of Europe it's recommended to not take any vitamin A supplement above 1 mg (or to eat liver and liver products because of their high vitamin A content). Why even take the risk?

Re: preggers and vega?

You have no worries using Vega while Pregnant. This is simply not true and I'm really concerned that you would say so. Vega contains 100% RDI of pre-vitamin A (retinyl palmitate). High intakes of vitamin A can damage the embryo. In general the official recommendation is to not take supplements, exc...
