Kalbi Ribs Recipe

Rich, intensely savory, and meltingly tender, ribs are about as Primal an eating experience as we can muster these days unless we’re out in the wild hunting or fishing and cooking protein over a campfire. Kalbi, a classic Korean BBQ dish, begins with a bath in a sweet and salty marinade before being cooked until caramelized on a grill or under other intense heat.

Flanken short ribs are cross-cut ribs about a half-inch thick. Ask your butcher to prepare them for you if you can’t find them. For the marinade, you can use any type of apple, or you can use an Asian pear. These ribs are broiled, but you can also put them on the grill for a few minutes on each side.

According to The Keto Reset Diet and Keto for Life, that would be about 50 grams total (gross) per day, with some wiggle room if most of your carbs are coming from non-starchy vegetables and avocados. Otherwise, you don’t micromanage your protein, fat, or total calorie intake.

Is Intermittent Fasting Bad for People with Thyroid Issues?

Is intermittent fasting a good idea for people with thyroid issues?

It’s a common question. After all, we know that the thyroid gland is a sensitive barometer of overall caloric sufficiency in the body. If a fast sends a message of caloric insufficiency, and the body thinks “times are tough,” the thyroid may presumably down-regulate its function to slow down the metabolic rate and preserve energy and nutrients. Caution is justifiable.
