  1. Understand some folks don't like the science behind the results but I do and I appreciate you cutting your sources so I can read them directly. There's some related research that goes a bit deeper and the citation allows me to go deeper though I can see from the comments that some people think it's plenty thorough already. Appreciate it

  2. I make a keto drink with a scoop of Keto powder, a half scoop of MCT oil, 8oz of walnut milk and 4 tbsp of heavy cream. Glad to hear its got some benefit going for it.

  3. Now do a video on why cholesterol (any sort) is supposedly bad for you, I wont be holding my breath. You could start with the study showing high LDL as a marker for longevity in people over 65 and why thats wrong.

  4. Extra virgin olive oil and extra virgin avocado oil are both highest in palmitic acid. Are you saying i need to cut back on these? I remember you touting them as the healthy go-to oils! Please advise!

  5. Ok, so now, on keto, we DO have to be concerned about cholesterol? Even though carbs are staying under 20g? Now, red meat- not so good, chicken- better? What are you saying to all those doing carnivore? It also concerns me that DeLauer is always selling something directly related to his teaching. Yes, I get it, but it is concerning.

  6. I think the thing to do is add stearic and myristic acid to lean beef during the cooking process, rather than buying fatty cuts. Most pork and dark meat chicken that you buy today is loaded with unhealthy PUFAs. It can be as bad as using soybean oil. The solution is to buy lean ruminant cuts or chicken breast and add in healthy fats.

  7. Heavy cream is great with my coffee, I am 100% used to it now / with cinnamon

    Except for my cappuccino in morning which I’m not sure they can use heavy cream, yes I know the milk they use has sugar and breaks the fast, but overall not that bad

  8. question: when restrictive dieting (like carnivore + fasting), how long does it take to develop carb and vegetable intolerance (to the likes of brussles sprouts, onion, sweet potato, etc)?

    It took me months to be able to handle these again and it would be helpful to know.

  9. palmitic acid is the main fat that is being synthesized through denovolipogenesis, so why would it be bad? Why are we still arguing over whether a fatty acid is good or bad based on its effect on blood lipids when the whole cholesterol and LDL being bad stuff has already been debunked

  10. Healthy user bias. When looking at these types of studies is there needs to be corrections for lifestyle. e.g. Most unhealthy people probably have high palmitic acid intake. However, would we see same correlations in healthy groups that still include significant red meat? Same issue I have with studies looking at nitrites.

  11. The problem with Thomas' discussion about increasing cholesterol levels is the fact that the body is self regulating for cholesterol. If you don't eat foods containing cholesterol, your body will produce what you need. If you eat food that contains cholesterol, your body will produce less. So it is incorrect to say that eating red meat, for instance, increases your cholesterol levels. Your levels are what's needed for cellular repair, among other things. If your cholesterol levels are high (and there is disagreement about what constitutes 'high'), then you probably have metabolic syndrome.

  12. Thanks for presenting your research. It’s interesting to me that cholesterols levels directly correlates with inflammatory foods. Perhaps what we are seeing is a leaky gut allowing inflammatory fats (ie hydrogenated pal metic fats) into the visceral area. If so, the body would protect the organs with cholesterol , fat, and scar tissue.
