    It's plausible--there are some eerie connections between gut function and neurotransmitters. "Toxin" sounds melodramatic but bacteria + nutrients in certain combinations can definitely impact the...

    Without agreeing or disagreeing, the case I heard is:
    Most glucose is claimed by the brain, nerves, and red blood cells which don't vary as much as body size might suggest, i.e. petite woman and...

    I can't comment on the twitches but the US RDAs are a based on a patchwork of old and dubious observations. In particular it seems that calcium is unreasonably high--it's often the only one...

    Anecdotally the folks I know are cooking less than ever so these data probably reflect the ingredients that manufacturers prefer. Still plenty of neomania for packaged meals and restaurants with the...

    They can be good if creatively marinated or poached gently like a lean fish but ya--the common version is more like dry jerky. Roasting a whole bird has so many advantages I can't remember the last...

    I could never lose waist on 3 meals a day (it's an industrial concept IMO). Those meals are solid--continue with them for a bit to replenish any nutrients that your previous diet lacked, then...

    The term is often thrown around imprecisely. IIRC ketone adaptation refers to a specific biohack among endurance athletes with no relevance for general folks, and the carb + protein limits are quite...

    Virtually nothing in biology is linear--every line is curved.

    Ya it's easy to observe that sodium = bad health as a proxy for processed food intake. The problem could be the low potassium content or any number of other bad factors in those foods.

    A diet that includes some eggs, wild seafood/seaweed, liver, cartilage, and cultured vegetables should obviate almost all supplements.
