    There are no guaranteed ingredients in sausage (doesn't help that retailers are shy about mentioning organs). Best case is freshly ground and seasoned in an intestine casing for a bit of cartilage,...

    Steak is a mascot food for PB but I honestly haven't bought one in years due to cost. Round or chuck roasts, brisket, shank/stew cuts, plus a bit of liver and heart.

    That doesn't sound right, check the serving sizes.
    Every plain Greek I've tried has about 4g sugars in a 5-6 oz cup--Kalona, Wallaby, Fage, Chobani, and some store brands.

    Sleep is pretty dehydrating--I slam 1 pint water first thing. I'm also pro-coffee though I wonder how much of folks' perceived energy from cup #1 is simply the water.

    For low maintenance there are also ceramics. It does have limitations (e.g. too brittle to hack into a butternut) but the extreme sharpness really takes the chore out of everything else. I found a...

    IIRC the Wiley Lights Out book suggested the hormone configuration during deepest sleep (3~4a) is the poorest for intake metabolism and thus the 12-hour offset (3~4p) is ideal, due to some labyrinth...

    • crudité: cucumber, radish, celery dipped in seasoned sour cream

    Welcome!
    You are correct that using rendered oils as primary fuel is not wise--I don't believe Primal Blueprint recommends it.

    An example 2000 kcal day might have 400 from protein + 600 from...

    Yes I think it's fair to categorize them like honey--flavorings to be measured with a spoon and not a cup. It's hard to run a kitchen without some nice fats for coating & dressing but they're not...

    Gram for gram nuts & oil seeds have amounts similar to grains & legumes so I can understand they want consistency, though I agree the handling of a ~1 ounce flavor garnish is not the same as a staple...

    Key issue IMO. Of course calcium should not be absent but the RDA is consistently debated because virtually no one achieves it without strange contortion (e.g. gallons of skim milk).

    Roasting in gentle temperature at home is likely fine. Some folks like WAPF encourage very gentle (dehydrator) temps to preserve the enzymes but I'm not convinced that's important. Store in the...

    Skepticism of "wise" authorities is wise. However, the free market doesn't have a sufficient answer to slow-motion poisons either--supply and demand require more open information than we often have.

    Probably not, converting protein to fuel is not a common process. The world population averages 50~100g/day and most folks' appetite (and budget) seem to shut down after that. 50% for an active...

    A typical donut contains so many ingredients, singling out a malefactor is probably futile. Gut toxins can impact serotonin and other things so it's plausible.

    There's a slight challenge because it's chewy without some work but also lean so it can't withstand tons of cooking. I like to slice thin, marinate, then make stir fry or fajita.
