Cops in the Crosshairs

Isn’t it about time that the most significant threat to your well being—pigs in lipstick, robed in fashions and military gear—got theirs? It’s happening. I submit for evidence in the court of public opinion, your honors: Take it over 1,000 That’s the number of shares in my recent post: Skokie Thug Cop Michael Hart Needs to Go to…

Paleo Cinnabon!!! That’s What Tears it For Me

When a few early Paleo enthusiasts stopped being enthusiastic, I laughed and dismissed them. When a few of those, and others, wrote posts of divorce, I laughed and dismissed all of them again. See, I’d written several posts prior—seeing what the low-carb Junk-Food “Revolution” Atkins had become—about what I eroneously took to be tantamount to…

Saturated Fat & Cholesterol Worries are so 2009

I love evolution, but particularly in thinking. It’s not an issue of right vs. wrong but a process hallmarked by honesty. Evolution happens in large swaths of time, such that discrete changes at any point in time are hard to identify short of outright re-evolution. Then one day, you realize that everything has changed. To…

Russell Brand and Jeremy Paxman: Oh Myyy!

I must have received 2 dozen emails yesterday or day before making sure I saw this interview of Russell Brand by Newsnight’s Jeremy Paxman. Let me make this quick: Not Impressed; What a Mess. Brand is basically just spouting reformulated commie drivel regurgitate…with the added spice of not doing another Chernobyl or any of the other…

Go Outside and Work—Where I’ve Been The Last Three Days

Isn’t there a “Go Outside and Play” meme that goes around? Background: We moved into a place about three years ago, around this time of year (early September). The backyard was a principal thing for me, other than all wood floors inside…because wall-to-wall carpeting is the stupidest fucking thing ever created by man and demonstrates…

Perhaps This Informs About My Passion

For 18 years now I’ve watched hang gliding videos. Originally, they were DVDs (I think an AHS or two as well). I only blog the very best. You won’t even believe the amazing Austrian scenery as he’s doing his aerobatics. I don’t do that stuff. I can launch on a yawn from the same place…

Resistant Starch Ingestion Has No Effect on Ketosis But Blood Glucose Blunting Effects are Highest in A Normal Diet

For my next installment on Resistant Starch, the following post documents an N=2 (two study subjects) collaboration to record blood glucose readings in different states of dieting, with and without RS. The following was assembled by regular commenter Marie (a real life scientist in her day job) and ‘Tatertot Tim’, the guy who brought RS to Free the Animal months ago and has probably read more of the studies going back 30 years than anyone currently living on the planet.


After reading the information you posted from Tim and yourself on resistant starch, I wanted to verify personally whether my father could take it so that he could get the immunological and gut-healing effects of RS, while staying in ketosis. He is on a severe ketogenic diet for cancer and must remain continually in ketosis.

At that point, Tim and I started to collaborate, looking at a second possibility raised by the literature, that of “blunting” of the Blood Glucose (BG) rise by resistant starch when taken together or before a high-glycemic food. A large (300 gram or 2/3 pound) cooked potato is a good test for this blunting effect, as it normally gives a large rise in BG when eaten without any added resistant starch.

These slides of graphical comparisons tell our story.

1. For tolerance of ketosis to RS/PS, the results are unequivocal. There is NO rise in BG when taking PS alone or with a ketogenic meal. Ketostix also confirm that ketosis is not disturbed.

The Dr. Terry Wahls Interview You Don’t Want to Miss

This is categorized both under health & fitness and politics & culture for a reason. The first is obvious. The latter is revealed in the last segment of the interview. Unless you’re an Original Vampire that Nicklous staked for some reason and missed the last few years, decades or centuries until just now, you know…

Is Sexual “Perversion” Paleo?

I skimmed Sex at Dawn way back when. Skim, because I saw so much of it as pretty self evident to me, especially in the context of having two long-term relationships with non-promiscuous but nonetheless: “cheating” women—in the context of “social norms.” One lasted 7 years and encompassed three countries on two continents. I pretty much…

The Inessentials

It’s hilarious for me to point out to various people that because what they do is on federal government furlough, it’s safe to consider them inessential. Can someone please pitch a new TV program: “The Inessentials.” It involves a “The Office” cadre of laughably incompetent fucks; but, unlike real bottom-line business where such could never…

Frenched Pork Chops With Resistant Starch Mashed Potatoes and Gravy

What a difference a day makes. I still might not blog much over the next week, but at any rate, got interested in this during a trip to the market yesterday and so made it so.

Other Side

If you don’t do them Sous Vide, then I like a cast iron skillet, on high always, lard as cooking fat. Brown very well on one side (about 3 minutes, flip and then cover to get at the inside).

I might be taking a week off from blogging

At least that’s how it seems at 2:13pm on this Monday. I can call it off at any time, of course, but if I don’t, at least you’ll know what’s up. I need to occupy my limited mindspace with a few other things for a while. Anyway, next post up will be the data Tim…

Alright, Now I Have to Work Out a Proper Paleoish Shit on a Shingle

This is my increasingly common first meal of the day, nowadays—10am-1pm, typically, in terms of timing (i.e., when I actually get hungry). Sorry, I just hardly ever eat bacon, anymore. Tastes like I’m eating a block of salt, to me. But, Go paleo!!!; bacon, the exclusive favorite food of the brand.

Pretty Simple

If you prep them properly, beans can be quite amazing. After a 24-36 hour soak, drain, rinse; and then, where I plop the beans into the pot: sprinkle them with garlic powder to lightly cover, then desiccated onion flakes to lightly cover, then salt & pepper, and cover them in beef stock (or, chicken, if that’s all you have). I bring them to a boil, reduce to low and cover (I don’t want to add any water). It’s usually an hour or two, and you have glorious tender beans in a thick sauce. After the obligatory tasting and seasoning adjustments, into the fridge they go for a day, in order to form retrograde resistant starch. I often eat them cold or, just a 20-second nuking.

No, Really: Fried Egg Sandwich on Gluten Free Bread with Pastured Butter and Cornichons

OK, that’s exactly right. I’ve been working on a post about my take on some of the more funny dissenting comments from my 3 political-religious-government-shutdown-axis posts yesterday, but just couldn’t put it together in a way that made me happy: Dot-Connect of the Day: Government “Shutdown” = Big Fat Yawn Government “Shutdown” Juxtaposition (Real Hunter…
