    Probably when a chronic deficiency is detected. The idea behind fasting is to ensure both the "deposit" and "withdraw" systems are adequately exercised. Malnutrition is a potential but not...

    Ideally we don't want to be swimming in 150+ BG for long periods since it promotes nerve damage and glycation. This is highly individual--some folks eat a sack of potatoes without this happening...

    Splitting the intended dose into two meals 4~6 hours apart is probably gentler to the system than one but the effect on muscles should be similar either way.

    Low magnesium sometimes causes craving for cocoa (and nuts), and low carbohydrate can cause sugar craving.

    Unfortunately 85% is both so it's hard to separate. Try to ration a bar of 100% baking...

    Thanks, I figured that was the case. I'm wary of adding or subtracting nutrients on the basis of intermediate markers (e.g. "canola oil lowers TC")--when the real symptom develops over 20-30 years...

    I'm curious if coconuts have ever been credibly linked to heart disease or death?
    Americans don't eat many so applying (largely) American lipid research might be hasty inference.

    I believe yes, though I'm still wary of frying--we don't know the oil freshness and the temperature at which starch dries into a chip texture can form acrylamide and other things.

    Leftovers?
    Accommodating a "picky as heck" adult will drive anyone crazy, I imagine he's learned how to shop for himself.

    A slow cooker isn't meant to be airtight so 1/4 evaporation over 3 days sounds about right. Many folks deliberately condense stock this way for storage (can always dilute to taste later). ...

    I used to feel cautious about the half dozen sardine tins in my desk, but after years of others' scorched popcorn compromise is dead.

    Definitely remove all skin, but as far as I know nothing special after that. I buy the giant 4-5 pound ones and cut a 1-inch slice into cubes and steam for 15-20 mins, most of which gets...

    My lazy version of this is just a batch of guacamole blended with enough water to be pourable, it's plenty rich with or without other fats. With enough lime or acid it stores well.

    Welcome!
    Someone with prior insulin problems should measure blood glucose and not guess, but most people do not. Refined energy of any type seems to injure BG behavior and abstaining will help. I...

    Reflux and gas (from both powder and bars). One could probably adapt to it but I decided it wasn't necessary.

    x2
    It's possibly the best food to actively pursue. Benefits level off after 4~8 ounces per week--pick a weeknight and make a routine with that in mind.

    As with everything there's individual variance--I always reacted poorly to refined protein so I exclude it. Primal Fuel works for others though I feel it adds some unfortunate confusion to the...

    By type? If you get any whole food whatsoever you won't be missing any.

    By amount? Without mentioning amounts or energy expenditure it's hard to say. If you get severe appetite or dry skin it...

    I dunno...
    If a person adopts one view of nutrition based on a media snippet, it will only last until the next one. I had to finish almost a dozen library books before this topic made any sense.

    A night of sleep can be impacted by the previous 24-48 hours so look at all circadian sync issues. Bright light exposure upon waking, activity and more sun at midday, eat between 12p-8p. Avoid...

    Co-sign, the mucilage is a magic binder. I usually add various baking spices then dot with frozen berries while cooking.

    Sausage often uses tough cuts, excess fat, heart, and liver that's difficult to retail but there's really no way to know without asking the producer. I would still pursue bone stock or liver weekly...

    Many benefits of fasting come from the energy(ATP) depletion, so sugar and milk will halt them.
