  1. So do (I hate to rehash this) the Masai, and they eat red meat and animal fats as the main part of their diet. Also, on the part of vegans vs. meat eaters, vegans make up a small percentage of a health concious population, which doesn't include much overweight people, so it's obvious why they are less likely to have heart disease. And, if eating meat was such a contributer to cancer, shouldn't getting rid of it altogether result in a much stronger response than a marginal change in the risk of
  2. Interesting, but the correlation is still not completely clear, especially due to the erroneous nature of epidemiological studies. http://www.second-opinions.co.uk/red-meat-colon-cancer.html http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/1875140...Pubmed_RVDocSum http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/1742559...Pubmed_RVDocSum http://www.proteinpower.com/drmike/cancer/...r-and-red-meat/ http://www.proteinpower.com/drmike/uncateg...-red-meat-post/ http://www.proteinpower.com/drmike/bogus-s...d-colon-cancer
  3. Well, many people can eat 1200 and still stay satiated by eating protien and fats. But still its not the best thing to do. And theoretically, couldn't the reason why this is working be not from the restriction of calories per se but the restriction of carbs that make up those excess calories?
  4. Alright, just saying. The correlation between number of calories eaten and clear skin isn't exactly beautiful. Just be careful with 1200 calories or else your metabolism will plummet and you'll have a hell of a time trying to get back to normal.
  5. Meat pirate, wasn't it you who recommended eating nothing but beef for a month and see if you clear up and that it worked for you? Just saying, it's a radical shift from your current ideology. Sounds like you found something that really works for you though. Restricting calories actually made my skin worse D: Rubbish, if you're really eating 1200 calories a day, even avid calorie restricted dieters eat at least 1500 calories a day, and strive for a BMI of 18-20. Do you think that's a bit too lo
  6. I've seen a few on Google implying immune system and anti-inflammatory benefits, though I don't have them on hand atm. I don't know about acne, but there are tons of convincing-sounding anecdotal evidence floating around if that's your thing. One acne ebook claims kefir as the ultimate cure. Plus, if you have candida, probiotics may improve acne, though not drastically I don't think. Here's a long one on the benefits of kefir: http://www.foodsciencecentral.com/fsc/bulletin-ff-free, a probiotic,
  7. "This is why vegetarians have far lower cancer rates than people who eat lots of meat not because their bodies somehow dont want to kill themselves but because they simply ingest less cooked protein and therefore have lower risk of cancer " Not true. Also, AGEs in the body are mostly caused by glucose. And just for the hell of it: http://www.drbriffa.com/blog/2005/05/01/re...d-colon-cancer/ "a review of the available literature in this area published in the European Journal of Clinical Nutr
  8. Here's additional data with some very interesting conclusions if you want to pursue the meat vs. cancer issue: http://stats.org/stories/2007/harvard_data_diet_oct12_07.htm "On closer inspection, STATS found that the 30% increase in risk for colon cancer claimed by Chao et al, was not statistically significant – nor did it apply to women, where there was no correlation between meat consumption and colon cancer. The same study did find, however, a statistically significant increase in rectal c
  9. Depends on how much carbs you eat per day. If you were in ketogenesis for the entire three weeks that could account for the relapse. Also, if you can give it up, getting rid of almond butter might help.
  10. There are tons of contradictory findings. Allow me to add to the confusion: http://www.ajcn.org/cgi/content/full/70/3/516S "There were no significant differences between vegetarians and nonvegetarians in mortality from cerebrovascular disease, stomach cancer, colorectal cancer, lung cancer, breast cancer, prostate cancer, or all other causes combined." http://www.cancerproject.org/survival/cancer_facts/meat.php "Meat is bad." If meat does increase the risk of some forms of colonic cancer th
  11. Oh yes, doctors everywhere are tag-teaming with big pharma to keep people sick and make huge money. Unfortunately, all the doctors I've spoken to must have been left out of the big plan. Either that or they're just sneaky little bastards. This is ridiculous. Saying something is effective simply because it's "natural" or been around for thousands of years is faulty logic, something alternative medicine is rightly criticized for. And saying that parasites may increase susceptibility to schizophre
  12. Drinking urine is just one huge placebo. The more atypical the placebo, the more ostensibly effective it's gonna be. In a couple of weeks the benefits will subside and you'll have to find another miracle cure. And so what if the practice has been done since the Edo period or the Passover? So has bloodletting and acupuncture. Results from topical urea should also be mild at best, possibly as effective as salicylic acid. I'd like to see ONE study, double-blind or otherwise, that shows drinking u
  13. Really? I thought Dotty1 never posted any pictures of herself. Some people use a low-carb high-fat non-ketogenic diet to maintain constant normal blood sugar levels. And exercise will definately help.
  14. Home-grown kefir is better than any yogurt, its cultured milk with 10 billion bacteria/ml and 30 different strains of organisms. If you can't get it however then you can make your own yogurt by putting a few tablespoons from a good commercial brand (Stoneyfield) in a quart of milk and putting it somewhere warm (theres more steps, but thats the basic premise). Probiotics may be good, but they are more expensive with less bacteria.
  15. I eat lots of dairy daily actually, an entire quart of yogurt or kefir a day 0.o with no negative consequences on my part. I'm not sure about regular milk, however, and anything with excess sugars such as sweetened commercial yogurt or ice cream will probably cause trouble when taken in nimiety. Btw, Caps Lock broken?
