  1. You should check Brad Marshall's fire in a bottle website. He has alot of interesting studies hes looked at going into how saturated fats and unsaturated fats effect weight gain of humans throughout history until now. Considering obesity is a very new thing in human history, it's worth looking into the effect these newly introduced unsaturated fats(veg oils, seed oils) have impacted health and weight gain.

  2. Love your videos dude, they're all super informative. I wanted to take your opinion on my confusion related to nutrition. I'm underweight at the moment with a BMI of 17.5 but repugnant to gain weight because I can't do strength training for an year or maybe more. I was on the receiving end of a L1 burst fracture which restrains me from lifting weights. Now, I don't wanna gain a lot of fat just to get on the ideal side of a subjective metric which is kind of inevitable without strength training. Any ideas what steps I can take next? On a side note, I'm eating 1300-1400 calories only on a daily basis which I do understand is inadequate.

  3. Wow. That was a fantastic video. One that I could actually understand. I'm not a scientist but I am trying to understand fats more. My take away from this is that a diet high in saturated fats may lead to higher and faster cell senescence. Whereas a diet higher in unsaturated fats would lead to more of a stockpile in the lipids storage of the cell and a slower use of that energy. Does that sound about right?
