Re: How do you incorp vegetables in your diet

Peter Attia has said, "I eat vegetables, but primarily because they are a great way to get more fat (e.g., high-fat salad dressings, butter), not because I 'need' them."

Love that guy.

Re: How do you incorp vegetables in your diet

As far as I understand it, the previous generation was keen on steaming and boiling their veggies, but that just lead to tasteless, soggy veg that we all hated to eat growing up. Just keep in mind...

Re: Time to jump off that gluten free train...

An interesting article. I've quietly disagreed with gluten sensitivity for a while now, but seeing as it gets people to (generally) eat less processed carbs, I'm publicly for it. As this study shows,...

Re: Strict Paleo Zone

Well I'm happy for you! I'll be honest, I'm surprised at all the fruit you're eating; There's a lot of sugar in all that fruit, but apparently your body can handle it. If you've got access to dairy...

Re: The Optimal CrossFit Diet?

I agree with the first bit, absolutely. Everyone is different and the optimal diet is going to be different for everyone. Perhaps I was being overly optimistic when I started the thread.

Re: Food pairings

Pretty sure science has found that calcium is fat-soluble. If you want to absorb calcium, you have to eat fat with it. At least that's my understanding of it.

Wiki is a decent place to start; I...

Re: Food pairings

Ok, you said that rice & beans won't be "digested equally." Nobody ever claimed that they would. I'm a huge advocate for low-carb; I'm the first one to admit that foods are digested unequally across...

Then it's a good thing that nobody is claiming that.

Re: How do you incorp vegetables in your diet

I've seen it argued that low-carb followers don't need fiber. A fat-adapted body functions very differently than what we're used to.

Re: Food pairings

I'd also say that timing can be relevant, depending on a few things. We've already discussed in another thread how your body responds differently to partition calories post-workout.

Re: Food pairings

I'm absolutely on board with this. There are a lot of cultural examples of food combinations that work together to get the most benefits, like rice & beans; they each make up for what the other...

I had no idea "inflammation" meant all of that, but it makes more sense than what I was saying.

Re: Food for one day, how to improve?

I was looking through some studies and came across this. This is hands down the best way I've seen to describe my thoughts on nutrition:

Wait, so you're saying that a caloric surplus causes weight gain?

Re: Food for one day, how to improve?

Every time I try to describe why a low-carb approach is better than the standard approach, I'm met with the equivalent of "yeah, but still." I'm moving on.

Re: Food for one day, how to improve?

This seems correct, if I'm understanding you. Your body is always generating energy.



This part doesn't make sense though. Let's say that I burn exactly 2,000 cals every 24-hour period. And let's...

Re: Food for one day, how to improve?

I almost hate to do this, but you did say a few posts ago, "eating carbs does inhibit fat oxidation."

Ok, so these pretty much agree with what I'm trying to say as well. Those with insulin resistance did better than those more sensitive to insulin in terms of weight gain and bf%. And insulin...
