You're into paleo stuff right?
not too much. it's a nice narrative with too many exceptions to be useful beyond that.

No, my question is, how can one lose weight without reducing calories?
again, it's tautological, if "lose weight" means "lose body fat". there are x calories stored as body fat in ThisDinosaurs body. if he reduces the fat, he reduced the calories.

3.brute has never cared much about high total cholesterol, as he knows that it isn't actually bad - doctors are just misinformed. brute's actual lab values are great, as recently discussed with a vegan somewhere here on the forum. brute's trig/HDL ratio is <2, where 4+ is "cardiovascular risk".
How about other fact on lab tests?
In what do you trust?
Care to give sources?
One more time, calling MD misinformed is quite interesting :D?

tbh, brute is too lazy to keep the chain of source custody intact. he's not out to convince anyone who isn't asking.

there are facts on lab tests brute cares about: glucose, Hg/bA1C, triglycerides, HDL (and their ratio).

BRUTE eats a pile of potatoes each year. BRUTE has 3.3 piles of potatoes. BRUTE can dig potatoes 2.52 times faster than he must eat potatoes.

A) How many potatoes are in a pile?
B) How many potatoes does BRUTE dig each month?

(Disregard fact that BRUTE does not actually eat potatoes for purposes of this exercise.)

oh. maybe it would help 7Wannabe5 to think in terms of piles of steak, not potatoes.

I love the "Man speak like Tonto in Third Person" thing.

For no easily traceable reason, I am reminded of a story by Adam Roberts, placed in some future where there is AI and also still the influence of Christianity, in a VR playbox where in order for an Artificial Intelligence to be promoted into reality and put to work, it first had to experience a Fall From Grace by disobeying an instruction of "Eat not from the tree of knowledge" variety. The AIs that obeyed prohibition, were quietly deleted. Sad.

Don't be that robot: act with agency! Excuse the irrelevancy of this post to your ERE blog. Good luck with carrying on there, 3x expenses shows you are under way.

I think it's some kind of code to decipher. Sort of like how Neo was first getting weird messages (in the "the Matrix" movie). That's kind of how a lot of sci-fi hero movies start out.
