General Discussion / Fiber Menace
« on: November 30, 2017, 09:02:19 PM »

Have you read Fiber Menace by Konstatin Monastyrsky?
You recently answered a question about microbiome on
DD site.  Thought you'd be interested in it.

I'm pretty much aligned with Konstantin's thinking.

General Discussion / World LCHF Day, January 16th
« on: October 27, 2017, 09:39:12 AM »
This idea was recently posted on Annika Dahlqvist's site:

Let's have January 16th be World LCHF Day.

I think it's a great idea and I'm getting it out to everyone.

Hope you all can get behind this idea and get it rolling.

General Discussion / Chickens are Carnivors
« on: September 02, 2017, 12:51:00 PM »

This is great.  I always wondered how someone
could raise bugs for chicken feed.  Turns out it's

I went to my local farmers market and talked to
the person I buy chicken hearts for (High CoQ10)
and she said she feeds her chickens about 30%
black soldier fly larvae and doesn't feed them
any grains.  I bought a chicken to roast.

General Discussion / Hope everyone is well

Hope you are all enjoying summer. (Northern Hemisphere)

General Discussion / Great Video by David Diamond
« on: June 17, 2017, 10:47:04 AM »

You've been lied to.  (When I said that to a friend, he said "Saying that doesn't help your argument."
But I don't know how else to say it, because we've been lied to.)


It's pretty good.  She did a study with lymphedema patients.

General Discussion / Keto Lipedema Summit
« on: April 23, 2017, 09:00:18 AM »
Have I posted this?

This summit is free if you register during the summit:

The first 4 days have been great.  Still lots of great
people to hear.

General Discussion / Take coQ10 and Don't Take Statins
« on: January 01, 2017, 01:08:21 PM »

Excellent presentation by a second generation medical doctor

I choose to believe him.

General Discussion / Davis's Discussion
« on: October 16, 2016, 06:53:21 PM »
Bob Niland:

When are the comments shut down on
Dr. Davis's blog?  I'd like to respond to
a question from here:
But there doesn't seem to be a way to
do so.

General Discussion / My Website
« on: July 05, 2016, 07:43:50 PM »
We just revamped our website.  Lots of
great info there:

Let me know what you think of it.

General Discussion / Famous LCHF People
« on: April 16, 2016, 09:59:26 AM »
Okay, how 'bout a list of famous people
who have apparently embraced the LCHF
lifestyle.  I'll start.

John Goodman
Ricky Gervais
Melissa McCarthy
Suzanne Somers

Any others?

General Discussion / Tripping over the Truth
« on: March 03, 2016, 02:43:03 PM »
I just finished Travis Christofferson's book
Tripping over the Truth.  It is excellent,
well written and a real page turner.  I highly
recommend it.  He makes a comment in the
appendix that nobody should be eating

If you have cancer or know someone who
does, this book will be especially interesting.
Yet possibly upsetting that we seem to have
wasted decades in the push for effective
cancer treatment.  This tells why, and what
the state of cancer treatments are now.

General Discussion / Peter Attia
« on: February 20, 2016, 02:07:24 PM »
Does anybody know what Dr Attia
is up to lately.  He's no longer on
the NuSi website and hasn't posted
since 3.14159.

General Discussion / This is Utterly Fabulous

General Discussion / Lots of Backlash Around the Blogosphere Lately
« on: September 29, 2015, 12:47:40 AM »
Lots of backlash on several websites in the past
few days.  British Medical Journal article by Nina
Teicholz sparked much of it.

I don't know what to say about it, I just thought
I'd note it.

General Discussion / Denver ASBP Conference
« on: April 13, 2015, 09:40:56 AM »
Just got back from the American Society of Bariatric
Physicians conference in Denver, CO.  Attended the
Nutrition and Metabolism Symposium.  Met and talked
with lots of nice people.  Went to the dinner put on
by Dr Jeffry Gerber. 

Did anybody else attend?

Oh, yeah, we also did a remote radio show.  Did
anybody hear it?

General Discussion / Fast Food Place Offering Grass-fed Beef
« on: January 06, 2015, 09:19:08 AM »
I don't want to promote this particular joint, but
they have been advertising a grass-fed burger
since December 2014.  I'm just mentioning this
to say that if we persist in demanding what we
need as consumers, the marketplace will follow
our lead.  We have the power.  Keep up the
good work.

General Discussion / Someone needs to shred this article and study
« on: December 19, 2014, 06:06:07 PM »

I haven't seen this talked about on any blogs.

It's a bad study no matter how you slice it.  The conclusions they
come to are ridiculous.

General Discussion / Nutrition Conference Videos Up Now
« on: July 02, 2014, 02:35:13 PM »

General Discussion / Listen to me on the radio!
« on: June 26, 2014, 10:53:12 PM »
We have a small community radio station here
and it broadcasts on the internet:

A couple of friends and I got together to  have
an LCHF talk show on the air.  Listen in Saturday
3:30 PM.  That's U.S. Pacific daylight time.

It'll be our first time, so go easy on us.  Please
let me know what you would like us to discuss.
We won't be taking phone calls on the air, but
we would like to respond to e-mails. 

We have a few ideas to talk about for a few
programs.  I hope we don't run out of things to
say.  We do sit around for hours and talk about
it, so it shouldn't be too difficult.

Let me know how you like it.

Food Elements / Can't find Mayo recipe
« on: May 18, 2014, 04:48:23 PM »
I thought there was a simple mayo recipe posted
here recently.  I can't find it.  I read so many blogs
it may have been another site.

Anybody remember seeing it.  It used Olive Oil,
Coconut oil, egg yolk, mustard...

Why can't I find it?

General Discussion / Just for Fun
« on: April 01, 2014, 11:10:38 AM »
Thought I'd share what I had for breakfast today.

5 eggs, sunny side up, one whole avocado, a
tablespoon of salsa, two almond flour blueberry
pecan muffins, all of it drenched in about a half
stick of butter, two heaping tablespoons of
whipped cream with vanilla, a cup of unsweetened
almond drink, and a bunch of BACON!

Who says we're depriving ourselves of anything.

LCHF stands for Just The Good Stuff.

General Discussion / Dr. Eric Westman Video on Youtube

We had a very successful Central Coast Nutrition Conference
and the first of the speakers, Dr. Eric Westman, is now up on

Hope you like it.

Off Topic Discussions / VEGETARIANS IN THE NEWS
« on: February 24, 2014, 03:20:26 PM »
When I see that someone well-known has died at
what I consider a young age, I google to see if they
were vegetarians.  Often that is true.

The news said Harold Ramis passed away at 69.

I didn't click on any of the links but one mentioned
him being interviewed over some sort of veggie egg-
white thing.

Is there a repository of famous people that are
vegetarians?  Seems it would be a common interest.

General Discussion / Family reunion eating
« on: December 08, 2013, 05:44:45 PM »
Okay!  So we had a family reunion at our house this
weekend.  I'm sitting at my computer, 'cause I'm tired.

We (two of us) did all the shopping and cooking, so
we could make it completely WB great!

We fed 17 people Friday dinner, Sat breakfast, lunch
and dinner and Sunday breakfast.  It was fantastic.

Friday had my world unfamous 5th place chili.  It was
a hit.  Lots of bacon fat in the sauce.

Breakfast had chili relleno casserole, blueberry muffins
out of almond flour.  Nuts, high fat cream, tea, bacon
and lots of other stuff I can't recall right now.

Lunch after a boat ride on the bay was deli meats with
all the trimmin's on lettuce wraps, cheeses, pickles, etc.

Dinner was a real feast:  We had a rancher bring in a
whole lamb and cut it up it in our kitchen.  He seasoned
it with salt, pepper and garlic, then told us how to cook
it.  Low, and slow.  We used about 7 large pans in two
ovens for about 7 hours to cook it all.  People who had
never had lamb before said they didn't know it could be
so good and people who had lamb before, said it was the
best they'd ever had.

We also had cauliflower mash with parmesan and butter.
Delicious!  We had a bigass salad (as Mark Sisson calls it)
with a bunch of stuff in it including avocado.  More muffins
this time with cheese and chili chunks.  Man, they are good.

Almost forgot:  we made a grokamole with shrimp, from
Mark's Daily Apple website.

Dessert was the best Cheesecake with crust and crumble
crust and blueberries on top.  I got this recipe from Dr
Davis's website.  I've modified it to about 1/4 the sweetner
and three times the egg and more cream cheese,
and it was still quite popular.

We did all the work ourselves, (with a little help from the

Nobody complained.  Many people asked for recipes and
we stayed in Ketosis!!!!  Yay!!!!

Wheat Free Recipes / Lunch Ideas?
« on: August 06, 2013, 10:46:15 AM »
Hey, my sister is on board!!  She came to
it on her own and is now asking me for

She wants ideas for lunches.  Problem is
I never eat lunch.  My breakfast
is real fatty and proteiny and I'm never
hungry until dinner (and sometimes not then).

It's true that there is no distinction regarding
when a meal can be eaten, y'know, breakfast
for lunch, dinner for breakfast, but she has
always had a sandwich for lunch.  She used
to have to eat every 2 hours to get through
the day.

Could y'all post some easy LCHF things that
could be recommended to her, to make me
look like a hero?


Wheat Free Tips / Snacks at home
« on: July 29, 2013, 04:06:03 PM »
Okay.  Here's where we can post
snacks you eat at home.

Cut up meat from the night before
(I usually cook more than I need at the time
and cut it into small chunks and either
warm it up or eat it cold)

Creme Frache (the 30% fat kind)


Nuts in a bowl with cinnamon and
almond milk on it.

Cheese chips in the microwave with salsa.

What other easy snacks do you eat?

Wheat Free Tips / Snacks on the road
« on: July 29, 2013, 04:02:21 PM »

There are two types:  On the road

Here's snacks we eat on the road:

Macadamia Nuts (#1) snack

Other nuts, pecans, almonds, walnuts (roasted
and salted of course)

Cheese sticks (if you bring an ice chest.  Can be small)

Beef Jerky

I've bought Parmesan cheese chips from Whole
Foods.  It's near the deli counter.

What else?
