Max, yea thats the brand i drink.
I have been interested in weightlifting for years. Unfortunately i have done much more research then lifting, mainly due to injuries and just feeling like shit due to VLC. Im really into oldschool strongmen so a lot of my training revolves around that. Also strongman, olympic weightlifting and gymnastics/calisthenics.
Side note, i just picked up a pair of farmers handles, lifting log, fat bar and atlas stones (80,110,150,170,210,240). So its time to start strongman training!

Thank you, Derp of the Shiny Haired Hall. Question, though - why the interest in cutting the fat if it's already low in PUFA?

Could I not, the vegetarian appeal of milk would probably hold. I hadn't really thought of that before.

Zach, any reason 1% milk and not whole? Just to avoid excess fat calories? Anything wrong with the 1% organic?

Is it worth spending more money on Celtic Sea salt than Atlantic Sea Salt?
Geo Organics Atlantic Finely Ground Sea Salt - 500g - Geo Organics
I'm definitely getting through more salt and almost ran out. Celtic sea salt is around 3x more expensive and I wondered if there any major benefit from celtic VS atlantic. (both white)

Max, yea to avoid fat calories. I get a lot from cheese and chocolate so cut them with milk. I enjoy the 1%.
Nstocks, doubtfull that there is much difference besides taste. Minerals on salt are so small that it is insignificant.

I'm reading through "Eat for Heat" and have learnt that Fruit is a cooling food because of its high water content and low salt ratio to potassium. (not paraphrased! )
So my question is, should I eat less fruit? I eat a huge bowl of 3 types of fruit for my first meal and this could be why (amongst other things) my feet are so damn cold an 1 hour later. I'm doing well with NAKD bars which is dried fruit, but they aren't a meal. Of course I could eat sweet potato which have slightly less water content but again, I can't eat them each meal.
Obviously pouring some salt over fruit might help but it's vile, despite Matt himself saying to do this and it won't change the taste that much. Sugar can also be added, but there still no salt there. (Unless simply adjusting the water to sugar ratio is warming enough for this meal)
I'm totally digging his words about "But this isn't healthy food" blah, blah blah... Now, if only I could tolerate and enjoy cow milk Ice cream!

Reason: Reading on, my body seems really stressed out! Cold feet are a huge sign of this.

Randle cycle, fat bogs me down and messes with my sugar oxidation. Plus 0 fat = no unsaturates
Matt is misinformed regarding fruit; sure the water content is high, but so is the sugar, which is directly stored in the liver and easiest to convert to t3 unlike starch. I'll post more on this later.

This is what I already thought and salt to me, seems to be the thing that needs to be on fruit, not more sugar.

Looking forward to it It's like Matt is writing about my daily struggles, I can't wait to click to the next page!
EDIT: Thoughts on Sweet potato crisps? I can coat them in quite a bit of salt and eat whenever my feet feel cold. (although I need to work out my first meal since my feet get cold within hors of waking and are cold all day)
