    For a good discussion of PUFAs check this out: Mary Enig, Phd versus Ray Peat, Phd

    She says that the coconut oil studies (re EFA deficiency) use fully hydrogenated coconut oil, and are therefore seriously flawed. She also indicates that Ray Peat is mostly full of BS in this area, because his training was in hormone therapy and his knowledge of fat and oil metabolism is limited to misinformation (her words, not mine).

    So it boils down to who you think is more full of BS -- Dr. Enig or Dr. Peat. Anyway, here's the link ...

    My diet? Very low carb to initially lose weight, then moderate carbs (the past 12 years) for effortless weight maintenance. For me, the "carb curve" works like a charm. Once a week or so, I eat only one meal during the day (at late evening), as sort of a mini-fast.

    That article is full of strawmen and misquotation. Ray Peat has said more than once that EFAs are unavoidable, so a deficiency is improbable. She needs to quantify how much the minimum is as well as the maximum as she asserted too much is unhealthy. Hmm. Isn't that what Peat says as well? Where are the studies that define what the minimum amount is? And if there's a minimum, we need to define the maximum to avoid dis-ease, as she alluded to. Ray Peat has at least quantified his recommendations, Enig failed to do so in that article.

    She also neglects to mention that Peat is a biologist; she gives the impression that he's more like a confused endocrinologist whose area of expertise isn't how the metabolism functions.
