    Perhaps for a meal you could eat a hunk of your favorite cheese and some fruit. The Alaskan smoked salmon at Trader Joe's is very good, and that's an easy protein, too.

    On vacation this summer, I ate one teaspoon each of two wheat-containing desserts and I probably got some wheat in gravies and soups, because I wasn't asking about ingredients everywhere we went....

    Soybean oil is an absolute no for me. I gave up making mayo a good while back. I just do without it now. I make potato salad and deviled eggs with plain olive oil.

    Ray Peat talks about how the body is at its lowest point upon first waking up, due to the stress of the darkness and the overnight fast. If I am having a very shaky, achy first waking-up, I stagger...

    If he can get used to eating food room temperature or not hot, this would open up a lot of possibilities. I make omelettes, hamburgers, steaks, and fish fillets in the morning before work and eat...

    I was planning on switching to magnesium glycinate when I finished my magnesium citrate, and after reading this thread, I was going to look for a change in my dreams. I've made the switch now, and...

    I suggest you stop weighing yourself. If the new way of eating seems sensible and feels like something you can do forever, just go with that for a couple of months. If your clothes start getting...

    I cringe when I hear "Everything in moderation" because it so very much conventional wisdom, which has gotten a lot of people into a lot of trouble. And it does seem to shut down critical thinking....

    I am not so fortunate as to have children, but I love to observe people. On a recent trip to Disney, I was absolutely floored by how badly children are being fed. I saw lots of kids eating Froot...

    Without verging into "crack" territory, I find it all too easy to eat too much cheese. If I take out a block after work for a snack, with just four cuts of the knife I've eaten 400+ calories. Way too...

    I read peaches are goitrogenic, so this year I am not eating them with abandon. Eastern peaches, not California ones. And I'm eating only ripes ones (per Peat). I used to love the hard, crisp,...

    Liver for me, too. Depending on the piece I get, sometimes it's hard to swallow; sometimes it's almost pretty good. But I really need it at least once a week now. Or at least I think I do. That's the...

    "Heavy legs" rings a bell for me. Even doing Wheat Belly, I would occasionally have poor energy in my legs to get up the subway steps. After reading Dr. Cate Shanahan's "Deep Nutrition" and...

    My mother is in her mid 80s but not frail. She has seen a lot of improvement in weight, mood, and health with primal + dairy.

    I would suggest deodorized coconut oil for a newbie, especially...

    If you like the idea of changing up your vegetables, here are two ideas. Both are relatively high-fat, however. But, for me, once a week, they're a nice change of pace from steamed.

    I second reading through Ray Peat's articles. Female hormones are his area of expertise.

    Also check out the Jaminets' "Perfect Health Diet." And I got a lot out of Dr. Cate Shanahan's "Deep...

    I am a tooth grinder and occasional tongue biter while asleep. The tongue biting can produce quite painful and slow-to-heal wounds. I've never pegged it to starch or anything else, but I would love...

    I was a baker, too--cookies, layer cakes, bread, pizza. I don't miss it all that much because I do not let my wander down that path. I occasionally make a cheesecake or no-grain pie. The one baked...

    I always thought it had to do with the size of the particles. Steel-cut oats are not pulverized and rolled, so they don't break down into sugar in your body as quickly, hence a lower (or slower?)...

    I did not weight myself for over two years of Wheat Belly/Perfect Health Diet/Peaty. Not weighing was the way to go for me when I was losing or down. But though I do feel better on a Peaty diet, I...

    That was not the commercial I was expecting to see. The one I remember from childhood (probably the 60s or early 70s) was along the same lines, Breyer's touting its simple, natural ingredients, but...

    I have been going to my dentist for almost 35 years. I think she is an honest, decent person and does not suggest unnecessary work or pad the bill. I replaced my silver amalgam fillings for my own...

    My skin is very clear today. I ate more liver than usual last week and plan to do so going forward. (Used to eat about 4 ounces; will now try 6 to 8 ounces a week.)

    I must also completely avoid...

    My mother is a good cook and baker, so now I'm wondering why weekday dinners when I was a child were a bit bland. A lot of breaded cutlets and breaded fish fillets, frozen vegetables (not canned),...
