I have supplemented with pregnenolone in the past though but I stopped when a Dr. told me that it can be worse for some people to take that instead of the things they are actually low in because their messed up bodies can sometimes want to continue producing more of what it doesn't need and still too little of what they do need. For example it will possibly go to make too much estrogen in a person who is already estrogen dominant instead of making more progesterone.
    That's actually a really, really good point. Now I'm very glad I listened to my instincts and didn't buy it

    I have a feeling you're going to lose weight PM!
    "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

    In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

      • I found my test results (hiding in a book).

        Total cholesterol 175
        LDL-C Direct 111
        HDL-C 60
        Triglycerides 62
        Non-HDL-C 116

        Apo B 72
        LDL-P 969
        sdLDL-C 22
        % sdLDL-C 20
        Apo A-I 141
        HDL-P 34.3
        HDL2-C 20
        Apo B;Apo A-I 0.51
        Lp(a) Mass 7

        Insulin 4
        Free Fatty Acid 0.74 (this was in the high risk range)
        Glucose 79
        Leptin 10

        Cholestanol 3.57 (high)
        Cholestanol Ratio 203 (high)

        So, overall okay but I could get my VLDL size down a bit and my HDL size down and for some reason I'm a high cholesterol absorber whatever that means. Also my free fatty acid was really high which usually goes along with high glucose and insulin but mine are low...

        lots of other stuff here that I don't know anything about too...

        • Another low energy day. I just want to be in bed all day. Too much fruit? or just a coincidence? I'm not sure what is up, I felt so great eating this way for the first half of the week. Yesterday I felt bad from some moldy plums but my stomach feels all better today and it doesn't seem like that should be making me feel so tired, especially since I feel I passed all the plums out.

          Weighed in today. It has been a week eating Peat and no weight loss so far.

          • I just caved on the low fat thing and had a nice thick slice of raw cheese and 2 glasses of WHOLE raw milk and feel a ton better instantly. I'm not sure I'm cut out for low fat eating.

            • Women do better with more fat. There is plenty of wiggle room on this diet for cheese and whole fat milk, among other things.

                  • My energy actually went straight back to crap about 15 minutes after I wrote that When I get super tired like this my brain often turns off at the same time, making it hard to remember what I've done and what might have been a problem... which brings me to eggs:

                    I had stopped eating eggs in the spring because they cause my seasonal allergies to be 10x worse. The rest of the year I have questioned whether they are causing me fatigue or not (sometimes I feel okay and other times it knocks me out), but this year I have not had them until just this week. The last two days I had an egg in my morning chai. I'm hoping this was it, I'm barely able to move my body around the house! Not good.

                    I do think I do best with more fat but wanted to keep it low for some fat loss action. Now that I remembered about the eggs I'm going to try and stick with the low fat (minus eggs!) tomorrow and see if that goes better. If not, I always have plenty of dairy fat waiting in the fridge

                    Zach, I was realizing that you are eating the same macros as the PHD except the fructose/glucose ratio is inverted. He does give ranges for the macros, but you are inside those for sure. I had been eating that way and feeling pretty good (on the higher end of fat) but now will find it interesting to compare the difference of eating mostly starch for carbs vs. mostly fructose. He gave compelling info for glucose over fructose, but Peat seems to make lots of sense too. I'll just have to see what my body likes best.

                      • Starch seems to be the number one reason people have energy crashes. Even unripe fruit has this effect. That is why i stick to only a few fruits, dried fruit and mostly juice and sugar as my main energy sources.

                          When you started this did you have to get used to all the sugar? I can feel almost dizzy from it and then have a mild crash afterwards, like I just ate a whole pillowcase full of Halloween candy but it was just fruit and a little honey. I'm wondering if this is just my body or if I have just been away from this amount of carbs for so long that it will takes some time to adjust. I've not been really low carb in a long time but 150g. a day was normal.

                          FWIW, the honey always comes with my milk and gelatin and salt (chai tea) and the fruit comes with milk or cheese unless it is just a snack of a single piece of fruit.

                          • Absolutely. Most peiple have blood sugar issues at first. It took me a few weeks to not get sleepy and a few months to really sensitize. Now i can eat massive amounts of sugar and feel amazing.

                              That's reassuring, thanks

                              • I don't usually plug in salt into cronometer but I did today and I was shocked to find that 1 tsp of himalayan sea salt provides 33% of the RDA for iron. I have always been frustrated at not meeting the iron needs, even when eating meat. I should have been adding the salt to my food log.

                                I don't know exactly how much I eat but I would say in the range of 1-2 tsp a day. Currently more like 1 tsp. a day but in the winter when I eat lots of soups and baked yams the salt goes way up. I do celtic sea salt, I wonder if it is the same iron content as himalayan?

                                eta: okay, so research says that the pink color of the himalayan salt is the iron. Celtic sea salt has the overall highest mineral content but the iron by itself is not that much. I might have to pick up some himalayan salt and switch between the two.
