    • Short term gain, long term pain is an understatement! ten pounds of water weight followed by 5 years of debilitating sickness is more like it.

      • I agree with Ray Peat, when he says that oxidation of mostly saturated fat is probably not that bad, problem is everyone in the world has prolonged exposure to PUFA, and the effects of liberating unstable unsaturates is disastrous

        Still, it's definitely not ideal, no matter what anyone else says. I've yet to see evidence to the contrary.

          Its interesting that recently i have been losing fat in a much different way then any other time and i have not had the same negative reactions to fat loss. Its just a difficult thing to accomplish.

          • That metabolism cranking into high gear. Safest way to lose weight, the only way that doesn't come with any adverse effects, I believe.

            My friend, who is dieting, and not just her, but everyone I've seen, complains about feeling so bad while losing weight. Lethargic, depressed, brain fog, insomnia, etc;

              Shit, i have been on a weight loss roller coaster for going on 8 years now and in the past i would have to stick to a horrible calorie restriction diet of some kind. My body would do the typical reaction of shedding a few lbs, crashing and forcing a binge.

              Now that i have finally cracked the metabolism secret, i am shedding fat with only positives to my health. Its quite exciting really.

              • The secret to all things in life:

                thinking as if you're still a kid.

                  • Thats exactly the mindset I've been trying to adopt with food. As a kid I would eat chicken for dessert if I felt like it or chocolate for lunch if I felt like it. I would stuff my face for 2 days because I was hungry and then wouldn't eat for a few days because I wasn't hungry anymore. And I did this until very recently. I'm trying to get back to this place of doing nothing but listening to exactly what I want all the time because I really do trust my signals. All of this irrespective of my digestive issues.

                    Part of me wants to stick with Zachs diet for a while, but part of me doesn't because it has never been a way I have naturally been inclined to eat. I've never liked dairy or sweet things. I've always wanted meat and veggies. So I don't know what to do.

                    Is it weird in here, or is it just me?

                      One of the little girls I'm a nanny for eats like this. Sometimes for lunch all she wants is fruit. Or for breakfast, toast with butter and jelly, or just eggs. I used to tell her she needed protein. I don't do that anymore because I know she's eating what her body wants.

                      Sometimes she eats alot and others not so much. She's high energy and has no health problems. She's skinny as a rail, and her hands are always warm to the touch.

                      • Yup that was me too - a bean pole with boundless energy. And I have been listening to what I want more, eating ice cream at noon if thats what I want, etc. and it doesn't seem to be not working out.

                        • It's mostly about mindset imo, rather than diet, though that plays a part too.

                          • Hey Derp, I have a beauty-skin care question for ya

                            As you suggested, I've been using the Cps and powdered B6 on my skin. I poured the Cps into a cream and use them like that, and I add the powered b6 to water and spritz it on my face. This is a bit involved for me though - I want a more simple routine. Do you think I could add the B6 to the CP cream, or would the copper and B6 interact in a way that might diminish the good effects?

                            Also, Simpsons quote:

                            "Smithers: He was more than a friend. He was the reason I got up in the morning because he would inject me with coffee at six in the morning in the back of the head."

                            "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."

                            • B6 is a copper antagonist, but I don't think they'd compete for absorption in the skin. Might not want to make a topical out of both of them though.

                              • Thanks for the info. Also wanted to ask you - what do you know about progesterone creams? Like do you know what brands are best? (I read that they're good for wrinkles).

                                Also, now that I'm back I'm rueing that we didn't get to meet up Hopefully I'll be over again soon though, and you'll be in a different situation.
