Dietary Fat, but Not Protein or Carbohydrate, Regulates Energy Intake and Causes Adiposity in Mice

Highlights
•Energy intake was linked only to dietary fat levels and not protein or sucrose
•Adiposity increased with increasing fat content to 60% but thereafter declined
•Hypothalamic hunger pathways were unresponsive to dietary protein content
•Dopamine, opioid, and serotonin pathways were all stimulated by fat intake

We make these really yummy cauliflower breadsticks at home.

Ingredients:
4 cups of cauliflower riced (roughly 1 large head of cauliflower)
4 eggs
3 cups mozzarella cheese
3 tsp Italian seasoning
4 cloves of garlic, minced
salt and pepper, to taste
Directions:
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
Place riced cauliflower in a microwave-safe container and cover; microwave for 10 minutes.
Let the cauliflower cool until steam is no longer rising, then add to a large bowl along with the eggs, 2 cups of the mozzarella, Italian seasoning, garlic, salt, and pepper.
Combine.
Transfer to the baking sheet and divide into rectangular shapes to form the “breadsticks.”
Bake for 25 minutes, then remove and top with remaining cheese.
Bake for an additional 5 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
I follow the recipe that's on here - 6. Cauliflower Breadsticks

General Discussion / Should you be on a ketogenic diet long term?

Dr. William Davis says it shouldn't be long term, as it creates a stress response.
I wonder if he's had some new 'ah-has' along the way.

I love learning about all those tidbits too ...  believe this phenq review like sleeping with a bar of soap in the sheets for night time crampy legs.  :)

"sleeping with a bar of soap in the sheets for night time crampy legs". This one is new to me. Does this really hep? I too suffer from crampy legs from time to time. Never mind. I'll try this myself. Seems to be magic.
