    MOAR is just Internet slang for more, but an enthusiastic more+roar

    Peat refers to the man Ray Peat

    Thanks for the list. I had figured out (or googled) most acronyms by now, but this is definately helpfull, especially if english is not your first language. EVOO, CAFO and HIIT had me puzzled for a while...

    a few additions:
    GF can also be gluten free
    BP = blood pressure
    BLT = bacon lettuce and tomato (common sandwich changed into salad or wrap)
    BLAT = bacon lettuce avocado tomato
    YMMV = your mileage may vary
