    Foremost you want to be internally consistent day to day so your hormone curves don't collide and jet lag you (this is a lot easier if you're also externally consistent to the sun but alas...)

    Both great foods but ^this sounds a little strange. That would be about 2 dozen eggs per day? I'd start to wonder about allergen or mineral overloads. Maybe cut it with some butter cabbage is for...

    One of Diamond's other books mentions how remarkably slow agriculture was to catch on. People resisted it because HG was adequate & preferable, but eventually grain's secret weapon of shorter birth...

    Can't say I've noticed either but the ratio of deficiency consequences (high) versus cost (low) probably beats any other supplement.

    Both true.
    Grok diet was probably free from metabolic syndrome but also lacking materials for peak vitality/longevity (assuming DNA only cares about us until we reproduce). Most species in nature...

    CI seems to affect CO a lot. We can observe a (relatively large) modern person eating and burning 2500 but I'm not sure that means it's required to function. Grok may have instinctively taken it...

    I'm always torn about Indian food. It's a favorite among vegetarian friends but only so far as the oil, bread, oily bread, and more oil. I'm happy to tag along for a mixed tandoori platter but then...

    If he's being sincere (not bratty) then soup and salad/slaw may be good experiments. Vary the recipe each batch and sooner or later he'll encounter the combination of savory, fat, acid, and salt...

    Self-experimentation is great, the concern with ketosis is that some folks make a prison cell with it. The key is to find a routine that keeps your head on straight re: old bad habits. For some...

    Serving size is usually 1/4 tsp so I wouldn't sweat it, though price and quality are all over the map so do some scouting.



    This looks fun, I wonder how the cost shakes out? Whole beans around...

    No info on allergies but this thread made me buy a footlong 4-pound taro on the way home. Gonna make a cauldron of clam chowder with it.

    Temperature is a zeitgeber so it's worth a try. It's tricky in winter--I love to crack a window for fresh air but too much will provoke the radiator into rattling spasms.

    I buy taro often. The flesh is considered a gentle starch used as baby food in the tropics. The skin is definitely funky/inedible but easy enough to remove after steaming.

    Much fat loss occurs during recovery so don't spend all week in a sore or stressed state. Perfect your sleep--if the alarm hits like a fist then you stayed up too late.

    Looks like cocoyam or eddoe, which is related to taro? I've seen it the Mideast market here but the labeling is often unclear.

    I get these if I'm extra active and/or undereat. My hunch is it's potassium or magnesium which is basically a proxy for eating X pounds of food in a day. When I double-size the salad and pickles or...

    Sensible, but federal government has been inert for a while. Note how all immigration, marriage equality, marijuana issues are up to cities and states recently.

    Depends on the ingredients. Oil and vinegar are non-perishable and shouldn't require anything special (mustard, dried herbs, honey are all fine too). I keep 1-cup batches in the cupboard...

    Is a new line being crossed here? Governments have always "punished" income and property and regulated different commodities unequally, sugar included.

    If I'm reading correctly that's multiple 45 hour fasts? My hunch is that would be awful for circadian sync and electrolytes, and possibly protein and B/C vitamins unless one is totally sedentary.
