    It's taken years for me to figure out when I'm hungry and when I'm full, courtesy of 9 years of boarding school and having to eat everything on my plate whether I was hungry or not, liked whatever...

    85g per day?

    Well, that's the problem then. It's not doing them any good because they don't eat enough of it.

    Now there's a great "bait and switch".

    The closest my red meat comes to being processed is getting ground into burgers. That's from a meat CSA which turns the "untidy" bits of their grassfed beef...

    Absolutely THD works for me -- and my CGM confirms that. I'm consistently in a pretty normal range (100 - 140 mg/dL or 5.4 - 7.3 mmol/L)

    With the CGM, if I'm curious as to how much any food will...
  9. More evidence that no best diet exists

    This came across my news feed today. It should be from the Captain Obvious department.

    Of course, it's not actually...

    Thanks Ted,

    Before Statins, the normal level for total cholesterol was 240 - 280 mg/dL. I know this because my mother had high cholesterol back in the early 1970s -- total cholesterol of over 400...
  11. Deaths from falls in the elderly increasing.

    I doubt if the increase is due to living longer, I suspect it's much more likely to be caused by over-medication....

  14. So now white meat is as bad as red for "artery-clogging saturated fats"

    https://academic.oup.com/ajcn/advance-article/doi/10.1093/ajcn/nqz035/5494812

    TL;DR -- all meat will raise your LDL level and you'll die.

    One of the problems with science in general and...
  15. Diet and Cancer. Another study we can probably ignore most of.

    Thanks for the pictures Ted.

    I couldn't have been a participant in that study. First all that diet lemonade (with added fibre no less!!) would have given me a screaming headache. Secondly, the...

    There are significant numbers of people who claim to be "vegetarian" or "vegan" but who still eat eggs, cheese, or even chicken.

    Ah yes, the PCSK9 inhibitors. Evolocumab (Repatha) has had its price reduced to a mere $5850, down from over $14,000 when it was first approved. Alirocumab (Praluent) is still around $14,000/year.

    Thanks Ted

    So, looking at the study, they don't report overall mortality -- which in the end is the only thing that matters. And I'm not sure that a decrease in CVD-related death from 1.6 per 1000...
