    I will sometimes dip bacon in slightly melted butter. I didn't think you could improve bacon until I put it on a blind date with real butter. Nom!
  4. Addicted to Bread, Pasta, and Rice?

    When I tell people what I eat (conspicuous by what I don't eat in comparison), I often hear "But I can't live without bread/pasta/rice." However, those same people would never eat bread, pasta, or...

    Filipino here! I've used Miracle Rice for a little while until I no longer missed white or brown rice altogether, and I've been much better for it. People proclaim to be addicted to rice, but I know...

    There are tofu version of shirataki noodles that are white in color instead of translucent. I will have to give kelp noodles a try. It sounds neat!

    I agree that finding suitable opponents is the key ingredient. I've been fortunate enough to join an amateur tournament league where most of the players are about my skill level with different sets...

    One alternative to calorie-based theories of weight management is the set point theory. I've observed and experienced myself the phenomenon where the body weight does not change even after large,...

    I will caution that losing stored body fat and scale weight are not necessarily the same things.

    I've never heard it put that way before, but it's held true for me as well! Thanks for sharing!
  12. A Day in the Life of Groktimus Prime

    The week ahead will be a challenge because of 25 hours of required overtime between this Tuesday and the following Monday. Most likely, I will not have much of a chance to cook during the week. And...

    People definitely have selection biases. The frustrating part though is that for many people who struggle to lose weight, hanging onto such CW notions of "healthy" will eventually drag them further...

    I'm beginning to think that as far as what is considered "healthy" from person to person isn't a purely rational, evidence-based, or academic discussion. I think Margaret Meade was onto something...

    That's an interesting way to put it! The body turns excess carbs into fat as a way to mitigate rising levels of blood glucose. But now you got me wondering how this converted body fat differs from...

    No problem. Your HDL number is awesome. Now, if you would just quit burning so much stored body fat, your calculated LDL number would "improve"! :D

    Ask your doctor to test your LDL cholesterol directly. For most lab tests, because it's inexpensive, the LDL number is indirectly calculated using the Freidewald equation (LDL = TC - HDL - [TG/5]...I...

    It sounds like you're well on your way to getting to where you want to be. Just keep up the good work!

    I think I freak people out when I mention that sometimes I'll cook a pound of bacon and dip it in real, slightly melted better.

    I've actually experienced what it's like to go from morbidly obese to lean and thin, but I know what you're talking about. I've had obese people lecture me on different aspects of nutrition, and in...

    Primalness of Racquetball?

    I've always wondered what primal elements racquetball incorporates, besides it being fun and social.

    Racquetball has been a blessing for me in terms of obtaining a cardio workout. I get bored with...
  23. Communicating with Non-PBers About Fat?

    I've been eating low-carb Paleo for about 18 months so far, but I forget how I conquered my fear of saturated fat. As a result, I feel like I don't converse well with those who are still stuck with...

    LDL is still usually indirectly calculated using the 1971 Freidewald equation (LDL = Total Cholesterol - HDL - [Triglycerides/5]). So, raising your HDL will directly lower the LDL number you obtain...
