"The bulk powder from Farmalabor in Italy is the kind I like best, but US Customs can cause problems with that. Naturlich Kost Co-op, 4260 TR 628, Millersburg, OH. 44654, sells it mixed with glycerine, which is o.k."
I think the antihistamines would have a more direct effect
I still eat salmon and avocado and vegetables and other things Peat says to avoid, just not early as much as I used to in favor of more saturated fats and tastier plants. I like saturated fat sources better anyway. I think diet dogma is the pits. Eat what makes you feel best, and if you genuinely enjoy it, even better.
I love roast fruit. And, if you have never made millet with pears or apricots... oh, my, good stuff.
Yep, I only buy wild sockeye here in Canada. My hubby fished with his dad commercially growing up, so he is insanely picky about his fish. So, I would bake a whole fish and we eat it for a couple-three days once every 2-3 of weeks when the salmon runs & is cheap. I don't think it is too much, lol.

When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.
"I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.
In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."
- Ray Peat
He gives a thumbs up to MUFAS, so I think macadamia nuts would be a good nut choice if you like nuts. They're popular in Primal for this reason too.
here's my take on ray peat's ideas.
Ray Peat is Diet Rehab.
If you've been struggling dieting for years or eating shit then there's probably no better place to land. His whole philosophy (IMO) is to cause your metabolism as little stress as possible, you almost molly coddle it, so it doesn't have to do anything difficult. This is great for people who for years have been overworking their systems dealing with toxic shit and no food(cal restricing) or VLC or whatever. You eat peat, you go on a dietary holiday. But.......
I don't think this holiday can last forever (most holidays don't) eventually i believe you will narrow your metabolic range eating this way. Intermittent Stress provides our bodies with terms of reference, it lets us know what we need to do, what we need to improve (this is basically weightlifting (and life) in a nutshell). I think eventually a peat metabolism will operate in a very narrow band and any outlying event (like having to go without sugar for 2 days) will cause the peat body great distress. They will be railroaded into having to have certain foods available all the time. Which is ok in these modern times I guess for some. I just don't think this concept has been fully understood yet by peat followers and they may find themselfs in difficulty down the track if they are not careful to provide enough variance and challenges to their metabolisms.
So yes while you can suffer from to much dietary stress, I believe it is also possible to suffer from too little dietry stress. If you've fucked your metabolism, get on peat for 6 months to a year, I'm behind ya all the way. but once you've finished rehab/ holiday get back to work, build that sexy metabolism up, give it muscles, make it a beast that can handle anything.
For sure avoid all the anti nutrients, toxins and toxic fats you can for the rest of your life. but you don't have to protect your thyroid from doing work, you don't have to sit in an optimal temp range all day, you don't have to make sure you only eat proteins with carbs because it stress your body otherwise, you don't have to go on a hormonal witch hunt, once you've got every thing normalised.
