Actually, Sharon, better. TypePad has NEVER provided All comment RSS. Starting tomorrow, we'll have it. A major motivation for me finally making the switch. I'll never look back to TypePad machinations on ensuring a captive clueless blogger clientele.

I saw that. However, this is also apropos: http://bradpilon.com/2009/07/eat-stop-eat-and-life-extension.html While mortality is certainly an issue, so is quality of the life you do lead. This isn't the first time I've seen such photos. That said, I think IF is the way to go, anyway.

I just might, Kathleen. To me, however, the epidemiology seems to point to vitamin D deficiency as a more plausible cause of skin cancer than sun exposure. http://www.freetheanimal.com/root/2008/12/melanoma-sun-and-its-synthetic-defeat-sunscreen.html The whole debate strikes me as a bit a-priori, i.e., sun exposure --> sunburns --> skin cancer. It's all so pat, so seemingly obvious. But the skin is, in the end, another organ and it's quite possible (probable, even?) that the same sorts of things that kick off cancer there are the things that kick off cancer in other organs. And if so, then the same things that prevent cancer in other organs (god diet, adequate vitamin D) probably prevent it in the skin as well. On the other hand, supplementation is a good way to get the D, which is the most important thing.

Modern Ignorance, Rocco. Dumbfounding.

It's a bit like celery, but with the added butter and cream (use lots) it's quite mellow and creamy. Plus, it's cooked in milk.

Thanks, Paul. I'll give it a shot.

Thanks, CJ. BTW, how is the film coming along? Any idea of the release date?

The coconut butter makes nice tiny little chuncks of delicious coconut added to the flavor of the coconut milk, and whatever fruit you use.

Good points, Bryce. Of course, environmental impact isn't the reason most of us eat this way, but for how we feel and health. But, producing less trash is a side-effect that I consider a small bonus that just makes sense.

Yea, it falls under the category of personal values when not forced. unfortunately, so very many of them are about force. They want to "save the world." As to the cost questions, Dr. Monica Hughes has done work on that and has some blog posts: http://www.fa-rm.org/blog/index.html I've emailed her and perhaps she'll weight in.

"Teaching children how to kill?" Those unenlightened animals amongst are just deluded enough to consider teaching responsible gun use to kids just a bit better than teaching them to starve or become victims.

I feed my dogs the Evo, sometimes Instinct, plus they get a decent amount of meat & fat scraps from the table. Also give them the duck & chicken breasts, and desiccated beef, buffalo, and venison liver, and desiccated lambs lung (they love it). I also get lard from the Mexican market and they get a dollop per day, and sometimes some coconut oil. I also give em a bit of CLO, salmon oil, D3, and K2 MK-4 1-2 times per week. My 10-year-old is leaner, more active, and naturally aggressive (he's unfixed) than when he was 5.

"I have one general question: when training heavy twice a week and IF two days later is my body eating my muscles protein or is it using fat stores? No good answer anywhere on th web. I think you're the only one that would understand the question !).Keep up the great job !" You're probably eating some lean tissue, but this is normal physiology. You want to, actually, as it's part of the whole cycle of consuming the old and rebuilding with new. Here's something to consider: autophagy. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Autophagy_(cellular) http://www.arthurdevany.com/?p=674 But, when you are eating well, i.e., no carb-sugar laden junk, then glycogen is low, and you body becomes accustomed to fat burning. The brief intense workouts keep your body on alert for rebuilding and maintaining that lean tissue (because you use it -- signaling genes, essentially, to spare it). There's some dispute about GH, but I think that if there is a very important role for it, it's not so much in building lean tissue as in preserving it, i.e., making your body go for the fat instead, and eating right ensures that your body is very efficient at moving from carb burning to fat burning. Three things promote GH release: 1. Intense exercise (resistance, sprinting, etc.) 2. Sleep 3. Fasting So, the very act of not eating intermittently or acutely, seems to preserve the lean tissue, at least it has for me. The difference for me is that I tend to fast on my workout days, such as today. I had dinner last night, then some nuts around 9:30 or so. I won't eat until dinner, today (around 7-8 pm), and I have a workout at 2 pm. You might check out Eat Stop Eat by Brad Pilon. It's a good book with lots of science regarding preservation of lean tissue in conjunction with a fast.

I'm sure she'll be glad to know. She has been getting better and better on the diet aspect.

It's probably that the few skin creases were just puffed out with fat and water retention. :)

I read somewhere that Israel has high CVD mortality. Yep, another of those unintended consequences. Early prohibition of pork was probably due trichinosis, but the leaders probably figured it would just be easier to have God command it rather than have to give a rational explanation.
