Re: Why exercise alone won't save us

brute's hypothesis: diet and exercise are overrated as factors in human body composition, which is why there is no "one workout/diet that works (for all human)". in the end, body composition is mainly regulated by hormones. exercise (in the right intensity and duration, with the right reco...

Science works by successive approximations, with increasing accuracy [..] What won't happen though, is a 180 degrees turn. Science doesn't pivot on its axis.
clearly false in the case of dietary science. what bigato is explaining is the romanticized version of science, not the actual one.

Re: Planetary health diet

The way to attenuate this is to trust the proper scientific process as a source of actionable knowledget-we-believe the problem with this is that the science will not be in on time. there is no null hypothesis in life - humans have to eat something. so if the science will definitely, positively fin...

There's currently no genetically engineered wheat being commercially grown [1] - meat production requires way more water than vegetables [2] - factory farming tipically uses grains from industrial monoculture, roughly 5 to 7kg of grain to produce 1kg of beef [3] Even if we compare grass feed, free ...

Re: Planetary health diet

So you don't believe that a plant-based diet is more sustainable? It's much more energy efficent so i don't see how that can't be true. I mean you might believe that climate change isn't a big threat, but it's not just about CO2. It is also about how much land is used for farming instead of leaving...

Care to share brute's sources for this absurd claim?
sounds like a ton of work. the book Fiber Menace would be a start for those interested. btw, brute is not interested in ad hominems against the book or its author.

Yes, yes. And fiber causes cancer. Yes, we know. yes. butt cancer. The planetary health diet does allow for small amounts of meat and modest amounts of dairy. Is more needed than this for efficient muscle regeneration, etc? "is more needed" is not the question brute asks himself. "wh...

Re: Safety razors and shaving techniques.

Merkur handle with Red Personna blades. shaving soap, but not any particular brand. in brute's experience, "real" (=non-shaving) soap doesn't actually help with shaving, as it doesn't moisturize and thereby trap liquid, but instead dries out the skin. biggest factor by far is heating up th...

Re: Thoughts on the new Gillette Ad

I tried shaving with safety razors but never with much success - I'd either cut myself or get real bad razor burn so I always needed to go with the double and triple blade cartridge razors. there are huge quality differences and types of blades among safety razors. a good safety razor will give a m...
