Progress Reports & Photos / Ray Audette Progress Report
« on: October 07, 2015, 12:41:42 PM »
Someone in this forum once asked about Ray Audette, the author of Neanderthin. He hasn't written anything in about 15 years and some people speculated he dropped dead from his diet.  Ray hasn't gone into full marketing mode like Robb Wolf or Mark Sisson. Ray was a computer tech before he quit his job to write Neanderthin.   Ray turned 64 yesterday. Here is his 64th birthday selfie.

You can't engage him in conversation to get him to change his ways. He should realize on his own that what he is doing isn't working.  You can help people only if they seek advice.

Miscellaneous / Ray Audette - Dean Ornish
« on: June 23, 2014, 04:27:25 PM »
Interesting trivia about  Ray Audette and Dean Ornish. They were housemates in college at the University of Texas at Austin.

Here is a 48 Hours episode from 2000 featuring Ray and counterpoint by Dean Ornish.

Miscellaneous / Re: Ceramic pans
« on: February 09, 2014, 07:10:22 PM »
I bought an 8 inch and 10 inch Orgreenic ceramic pans and I am very happy with them.

I already had an 8 inch, 10 inch and 12 inch stainless steel pans and about 6 cast iron pans of different sizes.  Nothing beat the ceramic pans for eggs. They are better than when I used Teflon 10 years ago.  For eggs, you just need to rinse them with water or use a soapy sponge. No scrubbing with scouring pads. Even with Teflon eggs would sometimes stick. Not with the ceramic.

Could be that you are allergic to beef. Unusual because I know people allergic to pork but never known anyone allergic to beef.  What about chicken?

Diet and nutrition / Re: Appalling tiredness immediately after lunch.
« on: August 10, 2013, 09:14:17 AM »
I've been battling this for 20+ years.  Paleo has helped some. But it turns out I am better off with no lunch or a very light lunch. By light lunch I mean a handful of almonds and a small apple or tangerine, or half an orange. Sometimes a small salad.

Instead of the almonds or maybe walnuts I might have about 3 oz of some type of meat. Lately when people ask me to go out for lunch I just say I don't eat lunch.

A prominent Dutch social psychologist who once claimed to have shown that the very act of thinking about eating meat makes people behave more selfishly has been found to have faked data throughout much of his career.

Miscellaneous / The health benefits of gargling with coconut oil
« on: April 28, 2013, 08:56:49 PM »
Since coconut oil is semi-solid below 75F (24C) you have to let it melt in your mouth.

Diet and nutrition / Neanderthin now on Amazon Kindle
« on: April 22, 2013, 08:45:27 PM »
Some forum members have inquired about the availability of Neanderthin over the past few years.  It has been out of print for a decade. Used copies cost too much.

Neanderthin is now available on Amazon Kindle.

Ashton Kutcher is playing Steve Jobs in a movie to come out in April. He follows Jobs' diet to get into the role. He got sick and has problems with his pancreas.  Steve Jobs died of pancreatic cancer.

Research / Re: Lowest salt intake had the worst cardiovascular outcomes.
« on: December 04, 2012, 10:54:31 AM »
I asked here a while back if the war against salt was like the war against fat.  Most people feel paleo was naturally lower in salt. But, perhaps not.   Cave people in the pale era could of sought natural source of salt. 

Also anyone own horses?  Horses are vegans (usually non primate vegas are called herbivores). However, many people I l know in this area (I live in rural 'horse country') put a 'salt lick' in their horse corral to supplement the horse's salt and mineral intake.

One method that indigenous peoples used for hunting was to watch natural salt licks for wild game to show up.

How did you get the pictures of my daughter's bedroom and bathroom?  That's what they looked like 10 years ago.  Her car looked the same.  I donated her old car from college to charity before the end of last year.  It took me 2 hours to clean all of junk out of it.
