I've been eating a lot more fat and a lot less carbs. Not for any fat-loss our bodybuilding reason, just for energy and health. I feel so much better. My saturated fat consumption would scare most people.
Just so everyone knows, a lot of John's knowledge comes from the research and work of Weston A. Price. If you're interested in this type of diet, check out the Weston A. Price Foundation.
As always, fuck off...
I actually used to be a chapter leader for them, but just didn't have the time to keep doing it. One of Mary Enig's books have a profound influence on me as well..."Know your fats".....that little old lady knows more about the effect of fat in our body's then anybody I have ever met..
I try to read everything I can that you've written. You have a different approach based on the WAPF teachings. Such as your usage of certain carbs. A lot of your writings are lost in the black hole that is The Internet. I just realized that I get almost instantly tired after eating carbs. Do you have quick carb choices, or tricks that would prevent my drowsy after feeling?
I'm really interested on learning more about this MD diet..i'm currently dieting and eating 200 C, 250 P, 50 F. Anyways, if i were to approach the MD diet, what the the macro percentage breakdowns? I understand that the carbs are really focused on pre, intra, and post workout. I'm a 200 pound male 6ft. I just don't know how many carbs or fats to eat if i were to start this diet...
Milk is BS, the health benefits of it have always been blown out of proportion IMO. I haven't drank milk (or used whey protein) in years and I'll likely never drink it again.
There is a LOT of research on the health benefits of the immunoglobulin and proteins found in bovine milk.
Regarding potential... From the conclusion section of http://journals.cambridge.org/action...tyETOCSession=
Code:Commercial whey or colostral antibody preparations, which may also contain complement proteins, have been used for a long time as feed supplements or substitutes for farm animals, mainly calves and piglets, in order to prevent contagious diseases. These preparations have proven effective especially in the prevention of diarrhoeal diseases. Moreover, commercial products for human use have appeared on the market and a lot of scientific research work is currently under way for the application of milk antibodies in the prevention or treatment of microbial diseases in humans. Specific antibodies can be produced also in cell cultures or isolated from other body fluids than milk for use in laboratory experiments. However, thus far and in the near future those preparations are too expensive or not available for the scale of production required for commercial products. Milk and colostrum are ideal sources of these defence molecules for industrial-scale production because of their ready availability and safety as compared, for example, with bloodderived analogues. The main limitation of milk antibodies in human use is that they are derived from a foreign species and can thus be used only against oral and gastrointestinal pathogens or for topical applications. In order to overcome this limitation, it may be possible in the future to produce human antibodies and complement proteins in transgenic cows.
John, I have estimated the macros, is fat contest really that high or I overestimated? I assume this diet is 12 or so weeks out ant the fat and calories is cut out significally at the end?

I bought clarified butter for frying. Anyone used it before?
Clarified butter can be made at home very easily. I've used it for French dishes. I'm not sure how much it costs at the store but it's probably too much.
