Also, milk is the ultimate white supremacy drink, since all other races are majority lactose intolerant.

Drink a glass of milk a day to repress the minorities.

Also if you're a scrawny little beanpole, chugging milk and lifting a lot will make you blow the fuck up.

If you're skinny, you're not eating enough. Drinking calories is easier than eating them, and whole milk has a decent ratio of protein/carbs/fat . Hammer on those core barbell lifts and drink multiple 16oz glasses of milk per day, you'll be surprised.

Honestly you don't need to eat any carbs unless you're trying to build huge amounts of muscle. Any carbs you eat should not be sugary, and DO NOT consooom vegetable oil, canola oil, or high-fructose corn syrup. Make your own bread instead. Nuts are also good.

Do a 18:6 hour daily fast and eat large meals with real meats, cheese and veggies and you won't have to worry about portion control.

I'd recommend eating livers, hearts, and other organs of any animal as it's a much more efficient and realistic way of getting essential vitamins and nutrients, and very tasty.

Fasting is definitely more important than eating a particular diet. When you fast, your body burns stored body fat which is a great way of purging any toxins stored there, and your testosterone and HGH increase when you're hungry for long periods of time, which can help with gains and libido.

Tl;dr fast a lot and only eat carbs if you're a lifting legend.

Apparently eating a few hours before bedtime wrecks your sleep because acid reflux will kick you out of REM sleep.

ChicagoMAGA 3 points ago +3 / -0

Yeah, I deal with gastritis and reflux from time to time. I sleep like a baby when I follow my usual routine so it works for me. But people gotta do what's best for them, which may differ considerably from what I do.

4
TheWestYearZero 4 points ago +4 / -0

Reflux is caused by low hydrochloric acid. It is possible to get rid of acid reflux if it is chronic.

People are told it is caused by too much stomach acid (HCl, hydrochloric) but it is in fact caused by too little stomach acid

Too little stomach acid means that your epiglottis does not give its signal to close properly. Thus reflux.

Taking antacids contributes to this problem

Sufferers need to restore the HCl levels in the stomach. Low HCl levels are dangerous to our health bcs it means all kinds of bad organisms that HCl would normally kill are getting into the gut. Of course it also means people are not properly digesting their food. Nutritionally poor.

To deal with this, people can get some Betaine HCl - a non-prescription over the counter product in the form of rather oversized pills - and take them prior to meals containing protein. It is necessary to experiment to see how many to take. They are not dangerous.

Over some time, perhaps a few weeks or less, it becomes possible to cut down and then eliminate their use.

Thereafter, things should be mostly fine as the body recycles its HCl.

People with low HCl may also not be producing enzymes such as protease or papeine, which are involved in protein digestion. People with that problem can just buy a fresh papaya and eat a few of the seeds. Very effective. Much more concentrated papeine than is in a bottle, and much cheaper.

Coffee is alkaline and will neutralize HCl, so maybe people with this problem can give that up.

People can also consider eating home made sauerkraut to improve general gut health.

I might give up on breakfast entirely.

6
ImperialTeddy 6 points ago +6 / -0

Definitely give up one of your meals. Feeling hungry means you're doing something right. Also, real hunger is an entirely different feeling than craving carbs.

If you start changing your eating habits, you'll only feel the need to eat at the times you used to eat at, then it will go away over time.

Why is eating a healthy and balanced diet hard for many people?

  • probably a combination of history and an abundance of info so that it is hard to navigate what you should eat, as well as what is offered at stores and restaurants and for some people, the money and time costs in getting good food.

What is important in a healthy diet?

-meeting your nutritional and energy needs, simply put. Eat quality food that your body can digest (someone like me can eat lots of beef and cheese but my Hindu supervisor should stick with her vegetarian diet) where protein is the main source of your energy needs and fats and carbs fill in the remainder.

Advice?

  • be able to recognize foods that are valuable in terms of nutrition and foods that are poor in nutrition. Eats lots of the former and limit the latter to what you truly enjoy (for me, donuts and cheesecake) and forget about the rest of junk food.

Eat nuts. People tend to forget about that. Packs a lot of protein without a lot of unhealthy sugar.

A lot of people will say that it contains estrogen or something, but it is negligible. Estrogen is very important even in male bodies. Estrogen is very healthy and normal just like sugar as long as it isn't consumed a lot or by itself.

It also helps you develop your wisdom teeth as well as a strong jawline if you are still a teen.

4
ImperialTeddy 4 points ago +4 / -0

The estrogen issue gets real with any products containing soy. Nuts, so long as they aren't flavored with soy products, probably won't affect your hormones.

7
zzbg 7 points ago +7 / -0

Conspiracy, mostly. The food industry has created conditions where the vast majority of people jave to shop through them, and then they load the food with addictive added sugars.

Literally anything is a healthy diet, as long as you GENERALLY watch calories and only eat shit that is real. Vegetables, fruit, meat, homemade bread, etc. If its packaged or has a nutrition label dont eat it. NO NON-NATURAL SUGARS OF ANY KIND. Ignore his California-ness and check out Dr. Robert Lustig.

Fast for a day or two when you start, then just eat breakfasr and dinner. Lunch is largely unnecessary, especially if you are trying to lose weight. I settled on about 800 calorie dinners and 1000 calorie breakfast.

Dieting took me many months to actually stick to, but now I've been on for four months and I am down 70lbs. It's nuts how much better I feel. No more carbs. Lots of eggs, cheese, chicken, some beef, some almonds or other nuts like pecans. It is crazy hard at first but gets way easier after about three weeks. And if you are cooking for yourself you barely notice you are dieting after a while.

Many of you guys already know the basics of where I stand on this because I am outspoken about it. I suggested this topic (thanks mods) because I believe diet is the primary foundation of good health, and without good health, life is not so great.

Diet does not mean “temporarily not eating certain foods in an attempt to lose weight”. Diet in its full context discusses not only the choices we make in what we consume, but also WHEN. WHEN is just as important as WHAT. WHEN = fasting.

Through lots of research and personal experimentation, I believe a combination of keto/paleo and intermittent fasting is the best way to go. In short, protein: pasture raised eggs, grass fed & finished beef, wild caught fish (chicken snd pork are simply poorer sources of protein) fat: MCT oil, grassfed butter, 100% cacao chocolate carbs: vegetables, maybe some white rice or a cup of fruit at dinner.

I do 19/5 fasting, frequently only eat dinner if I don’t train (24hour fast), and do a 72 hour fast once a month or so. Not sure we should get into the fasting portion in this months discussion, or create a separate discussion for that another month. I will say I believe fasting is just as important as what you eat.

I’m in better shape than 97% of people and feel and look great. What most people do not realize is most people’s diet (WHAT & WHEN) is causing a massive inflammatory response in their body. You can see it by looking at them. I notice it in everyone (most) people now that I do not have it going on (I look completely different, and I was not even fat before).

I’m happy to answer any questions about this, but I will say that the best source of information that really compiles a lot of fantastic data explaining WHAT you should eat and why is The Bulletproof Diet. I think everyone here should read that book. If it resonates with you, read Fast This Way for the WHEN. Here’s some extra motivation to read it that you guys will get (but would make Reddit after a brief google search not read the book): the (((science))) and (((medical))) community hate the guy who wrote these books, and there is a massive concerted effort to discredit him.

I do make a bulletproof coffee in the morning, I train around 1pm and then eat after, eat again for dinner, have some grassfed whey before bed.

There is a ton more I could explain (I follow most of the book I mentioned, and that’s a whole book), but hopefully I’ve given people some motivation to do further research on their own.

The problem is that modern society has fetishized eating. Most people operate under the assumption that food must be enjoyable. Most meals should be plain, simple, and healthy. We load up every meal with sugar, dressings, glazes, breading, and all kinds of luxuries that would have been a once in a lifetime experience for the common man prior to the industrial revolution. You’ll be shocked at just how damn good a strawberry tastes when you’re not eating breakfast cereal with 50% your daily value of sugars.

Settrigh 5 points ago +5 / -0

I'm not so well-versed in dieting but I love those threads and I'll try to chime in a bit more. So let's hit it:

Why is eating balanced and healthy so hard for many people?

For one, I think it's because it takes more effort than eating out or ordering or just eating pre-made trash. They are too lazy to pick a recipe, go buy the ingredients and actually cook it. This, and the fact that a lot of people nowadays can't even cook anything above fried eggs.

Another factor IMO would be the taste. Sure, healthy food can and most of the times IS tasty, but a lot of people prefer the taste of pizza over the taste of, say, rice and chicken breast.

Third, some people are not hooked on junk food and takeout but they just eat too much, even if they cook and if they eat healthy foods. It's easy to get carried away like this and get trapped into the mindset of "hey, one more meal won't hurt. At least I'm not eating hamburgers!". Which brings me to the second point:

What is important in a healthy diet? E.g., portion control, calorie counting, protein to carb ratio etc...

I'd say that the holy trinity of dieting is calorie counting, macro tracking and eliminating foods with poor nutritional value. If you want to lose weight only then calorie counting and quality food will probably suffice, but if you lift for example then it's a good idea to track your macros.

The three mentioned above are pretty much the only things I do. I don't really follow meal times (my schedule doesn't allow me to eat at the same time daily anyways) or eat much in the morning and less at night or anything like that. I do fast for 16-17 hours for 4-5 days a week, but during my eating window I pretty much eat whenever, and generally one or two big meals instead of more smaller ones like I keep hearing some people do.

Share healthy dieting advice.

I'm not big on giving advice because I know it might not work for everyone and might even backfire, but I will share what works for me:

As mentioned, fasting. I tried different diets through my life (at one point I didn't work out and I was focusing on weight loss only) but nothing helped me lose weight as much as fasting. You can do it for 16 hours, 24, days even. But don't overdo it if you feel bad. Just dip your toes in at first, then gradually increase the time if you feel ready. When I was a teen I lost 20 kilograms of weight just with fasting, no fancy diets or even calorie counting. Just make sure not to overeat during the eating windows. I eat as much during my windows as if I didn't fast beforehand.

I don't know how fasting can affect gains. It obviously can if you do it long enough, but I couldn't tell you what is the most you can fast without serious muscle loss. My gains are steady even with my 16 hour fasting, and I never feel more tired or weaker than before I started fasting. However, this depends a lot on the individual's body, muscle mass, metabolism and so on. But if weight loss alone is your goal, fasting is something you should at least try.

As for the diet itself, just seek foods with high nutritional value, count calories and macros and you'll be a-ok. Also, I'm a devil's advocate when it comes to fat, cholesterol, eggs and the whole package. I don't think fats should be avoided completely. This is a common misconception about fats, but you can eat NO fats at all and still get obese from carbs. Also, fats have a lot of important functions in our body, so avoiding them completely is not good IMO.

I am not an expert so take everything I said with a grain of salt, and filter it through your own judgement and experience. What works for me might not work for you, and vice versa. Good luck kings!

Why is eating balanced and healthy so hard for many people?

I'm convinced so many have been convinced that food of various kind (be it comfort, high-end, novelty, etal) is such an integral part of enjoying life they must consoom food in the spirit of YOLO/FOMOism.

Share healthy dieting advice.

I was a bartender for a while at a place known for its attractive clientele, and the subject of dieting regularly came up. Talking about high restrictive, elaborate or high-maintenance diets alienates normies very quick.

There are very few normies here, but in the same spirit, I would suggest everyone not actively trying to put on muscle to consume slightly less beard/starch and sugar than they normally would. That's it. Nothing too major, and this change can be done for life. You can still enjoy sweets and starches, simply in smaller amounts or less often.

If every country with an obesity problem did this, it'd become a notably leaner, healthier, more attractive one with a half year.

DannyTheSkyman 5 points ago +5 / -0

I don't follow any diet besides - don't eat shit. So no soda, minimized amount of sugar, no energy drink type of things including coffee and minimum consooming of fast food type of things, I do still consoom some every now and then but generally just avoid it, that's it. Works for me

Empty sugar is bad, but sugar in fruits and vegetables are good. There is technically no difference between the two sugars, but you get the point

Cj71 5 points ago +5 / -0

For me, the best diet ive found is basically carnivore diet + easily digestable carbs. So any animal product you can think of is fine, and for carbs youd be limited to juice, potatoes, and white rice.

Eat organic, grass-fed if possible.

Completely avoid nuts, seeds, polyunsaturated fats (PUFAs) / vegetable oils, flouridated tap water.

Basically some mix between Ray Peat Diet and Weston A Price Diet

I'm going to have to disagree with juice, just because the fiber in fruits cancels out the high sugar content, and when you blend/grind fruits all you're left with is the sugar.

PepesCovfefe 2 points ago +2 / -0

Good question. Fruit is high in sugar (obviously), and so not ideal. With that being said, I enjoy it regularly in a small portion after dinner. I don’t think one should eat it during the day. My preference is berries, which are the highest in polyphenols of any fruit.

4
ImperialTeddy 4 points ago +4 / -0

My parents like to get hard seltzers or booze because it has "no carbs", but the problem is that all ethanol (alcohol) is digested the exact same way as sugar. Sugar and alcohol take an equal toll on the brain, liver, and hormonal balance of your body.

3
PepesCovfefe 3 points ago +3 / -0

The only alcohol that is different is tequila blanco because it’s the only alcohol your body doesn’t convert to glucose, it just distributes it as a waste product. That’s pretty much the only thing I drink now with soda water.

2
ImperialTeddy 2 points ago +2 / -0

Huh. Had no idea.

4
PepesCovfefe 4 points ago +4 / -0

Yeah; it’s pretty remarkable how different the blanco is from other alcohol. Only the blanco because once you start aging it then there are sugars involved. It’s so different that if someone wants to quit drinking alcohol and they just switch to blanco they will still have cravings and withdrawals. I don’t advocate drinking alcohol, but if one wants to to be social or what have you, blanco is hands down way healthier than anything else.

Talking about diet is weird because people invariably pop up and say YOU NEED TO DO (whatever diet) IT'S THE ONLY THING THAT WILL WORK, followed by zero or dubious evidence. As though you're going to drop dead at 24 if you're not following keto or carnivore or whatever.

IMO you should get used to what foods typically have carbs, protein, and fat in them, as you become aware of what balance you're eating you'll start to become aware of how your body reacts to each.

Why is eating balanced and healthy so hard for many people?

Lack of education and an absolute glut of shit-tier foods. Most people don't know what macros are, think eating healthy is extremely expensive, and angrily defend trash food because they're hooked on sugar and fat or just don't want to cook.

Hey there's the real health tip. Learn to cook. You're ahead of like 80% of people if you bother to cook some of your own meals.

TheRealPizzaPope 3 points ago +3 / -0

So I've tried several things with my diet before. There is some things that I've essentially entirely cut out for a long while now.

I haven't consooomed sugar in about a couple years now and I abandoned corn syrup years ago. Also, I've cut back on alcohol.

A few years ago I tried a Mediterranean type diet, which is rather simple. Although it was a step up from my "anything organic" diet, it wasn't exactly tuned to my needs. Eventually, I went to see a natural doctor and she put me on a speciallzed diet after running some blood tests. I had a yeast over growth in my stomach, so for the next six weeks I ate no sugar (not even honey) and no white flours and no brewers yeast. It was amazing. The self control I gained from that felt awesome. I became content with what I had to eat and eventually got really creative with it.

Eventually, that diet ended and I stayed pretty consistent avoiding sugar and keeping a good meal rotation going. Now I'm on a slightly more strict and targeted diet, just to clean up whatever else may be going on in my body. When I got my testing done there were several random things that didn't settle well in my stomach, so I simply can't eat those things for six weeks. Unfortunately, many of those things are spices that I usually cook with. I'm on week two.

Lately, I've been trying to up my protein intake. I aim for 60 grams of protein per meal but I usually fall short of that. I eat a lot of meat and I am happy with that. In the morning especially I try to get a high protein/fat meal in and 0 to little sugar (maybe a fruit or something). That almost always gives me a lot of energy.

If one slows down and listens to what their stomach truly needs, I believe they will wind up having more well-rounded meals. A salad to balance out the steak. Cucumbers to balance out the potatoes. Everything must be in order.

Ultimately, my take on food is almost anything can taste great as long as a great chef cooks it.

As a person with that had an abundant amount of toxicity and methylation impairment, I have dedicated much of my life trying to improve my health, as not to be dependent on the sick care system.

The dietary knowledge we are fed is mostly unreliable. The food pyramid is bullshit. Just like everything else ‘science’ is sold to the highest bidder. It takes a discerning mind to wade through the lies and half truths. This is a large part why it is so hard for people. Critical thinking is rare and our society pushes convenience, quick and easy. These type of people always fall for fad diet marketing. Some never try and assess their diet and prefer to fall into fat acceptance, lifetime dependence on sick care.

There will never be a one size fits all but after a few decades in my experience nutritional dense bio available foods have become my go to. When you eat this way it is much harder to over eat. The type of cooking oil is especially important.

I especially like Natural Traditions, a way of eating brought to you by the based dentist of the early 20th century, Weston A. Price. I am a member of WAPF and would highly encourage anyone who is interested to check out there website/podcast. Even if you don’t follow the food guide they do excellent work, and have dedicated a large amount to the C19. They also promote sustainable farming and local producers.

Before I became pregnant I did carnivore for 2 years, with interval fasting and it transformed my gut (and I had eaten ‘healthy’ long before that).

It is incredible the connection between our gut health and mental health. Non-clinical nutritional deficiencies are ramped. Better to address your diet/lifestyle and skip the pharmacy.

I am now postpartum and practice interval fasting, 8 hour eat window, low (no junk) carbs. I have lost most of my baby weight along with consistent weight work outs and HIIT.

I have found Raw Milk to be an incredible super food. I have had 3 friends with knee/back issues that require surgery, they have told me the aching stopped in these areas after one glass. My breast milk supply has always been peak, even with IF and low carb, something that is warned against in the pregnancy community.

I add Fermented Cod Liver oil, and high vitamin butter oil daily. Raw minced garlic, and Ancestral Supplements beef organs as well. I buy or grow organic, and raise pastured chickens, ducks, and beef.

Connection to food in majorly lacking in our society something my husband and I are striving to give to our Son by him being a part of our farm. I could write a book on what is wrong with how Americans view on health and diet but I prefer to actively do the opposite of what is pushed through responsible animal husbandry and sustainable agriculture.

Why is eating balanced and healthy so hard for many people?

Its hard because carbs, particularly fast carbs are addictive in the exact same way that alcohol is. Complete with cravings and withdrawl symptoms. Also because the body processes them quickly along with the associated insulin signaling you end up starving. Grains and cerials are terrible here, and goybread being the worst of those.

This alao why the fasting/calorie limiting diets dont work for carb addicts. They are already starving from lack of nutients and trying to convince them to starve more just isnt workable or causes other health problems.

My best results with rehab on carb addiction is to use high fat/mid protein/nil carbs. High fat processes slowly, dosnt trigger the insulin cascade, and as a result dont end up feeling false hunger signal. Starting the day with something like heavy cream, eggs, or cottage cheese often means not getting hungry until late into the day. Meats, cheese and green vegetables too. Take a multivitamin as food and soils are mineral depleted or affected by halogens most places.

Some words from the occult/alt health world that i stand by (might be crossovered from mainstream health, but if so, it's atleast not highlighted here)

Whatever you eat, eat it slowly. Never eat in a hurry. If you are in a hurry, then fast, unless you are starving.

Don't do other activites when you eat. Don't read and don't watch videos, don't listen to music. If you can, eat in a natural environment, where birds sing but nobody watches you.

Before you eat, cast your hands in a prayer form upon the food and impress it with your wishes. Take your time and don't think about hunger while u do so. While a whole lotta shit has been said about the effects of this, it at the very least employs positive self suggestion to remind you what you are about, and try to achieve through a good diet. Also sets the mood for slow, conscious consumption of food.


Fat is good.

Sugar kills.

Alcohol is broken down by those same enzymes that break down estrogens, so you are either flushing alcohol or estrogens. Inb4 man tits


If you have several bad food addictions and don't know how to stop, muster the will to go 1 week with only brown rice with basic adds like olive oil and pepper and water. It will change your sense of taste in such a way you won't believe it, and healthy food will be the only thing you will crave after (and the only that will satisfy you).

What is the boards opinion on type of water? I was reading artesian is really good and I recently tried it. Was on a hiking trip and needed to fill a bladder on my girlfriends water backpack, so that’s what I grabbed. I looked it up later and it said it’s richer in minerals because an artesian well uses pressure to push the water up.

I highly recommend the book "Nourishing Traditions" by Sally Fallon. Processed foods are horrible for you and it shows up in the form of poor dental health and inflammation (which is basically what causes most illness).

Yeah, caring about your health is super gay and totally fatphobic! Embrace your truth. Choose to be a fat fuck and live a life in which you always need others to make accommodations for your fatness. Good call
