    I'm on the opposite end in your sister state, New York. I know exactly what you mean.

      My condolences.

      He doen't market it yet all the peatarians here are talking about it. How did they hear about it? Telepathy? Right.
      Because word-of-mouth doesn't occur, right? Improbable that his audience communicates with each other?

      Mark recommends eating real food, good exercise, sun, sleep, play, and avoiding poisonous things. That is not going to hurt anyone.
      This is exactly what Ray Peat recommends, WTF?

Go to an MD who has a wall of degrees... and who likely knows little about nutrition and will prescribe drugs to manage symptoms.
        No, it's somewhere down the middle. be skeptical, do your own research, but also realize that, unless you are a doctor yourself, you may need some professional advice when it comes to the important/serious stuff (i.e.more than a scraped knee or a rash).

        Don't throw the entire medical profession out with the CW bathwater. Find a good doctor. Don't tell all of them to jump off.

          It's all very contradictory. Paleobird has Ray Peat all wrong too. I emailed him my labs, got a free consultation, and he told me what he thought I should do. This was months ago. Nowhere did he try to sell me a bunch of stuff I didn't need, he just gave me advice from one person to another. Doctors won't do that. They will insist you're wrong on all accounts. If something is becoming mainstream enough to be accepted, there is a sure possibility that there stands to be money made off you. The same thing Paleobird is trying to criticize one person for doing, despite being really wrong.

          Why should I have to trust one person's word over another? I did not blindly follow Ray Peat, I did my own research, in my own way, using my own feelings as guidelines. People are so out of touch with how their own real bodies even feel. Blame indoctrination.

          Are we not all capable? Human beings can govern themselves, and if they can't even govern their own health problems on their own without going to see a doctor, there is something really wrong. It's my body, I decide what I do with it. Advice is welcome, belittling my intelligence and telling me what to do is not. Don't tread on me.

            Google it. The ads are everywhere.

            That was is response to Derp saying that Mark's advice was soooooooo dangerous.

              Of course not. I'd never suggest or do such a thing, but I also believe in doing my own research and experimenting. You can't protect everybody from themselves. But you also can't protect everybody from malpractice. I think trusting doctors can be just as risky when they are so quick to prescribe dangerous drugs. I think it's important to do your own research regardless of who is guiding you.

                Google what? I searched for ray peat progest e and there's like one result at the top. This equals ads everywhere? I see ads for Primal on Facebook and dozens of other sites I visit. I have never seen an ad for Ray Peat anywhere without deliberately searching for it. When you are actively searching for something of course it will have results! It's when you aren't searching for something that it becomes advertisement saturation, which Ray Peat progest-e is NOT guilty of.

                  This is exactly what I did with Primal. It is not indoctrination, it is evidence. Yet you call me a sheeple at every opportunity.

                    Ads? All I see is a bunch of Peat forums and blogs discussing it. It's not even him lol.

                    You don't even need to google primal blueprint, the ads are all over the forum.

                    Again, no one should blame Mark for anything they do to themselves if they take his advice to eat VLC and end up sick. They chose to follow one person word for word. You can blame him however for being such a scheming marketer and using buzzwords. He doesn't just recommend those things, it's clear that he has a stance on VLC.

                      I called you a sheeple for the prop 65 thing, not for whatever you're doing with your health. I take your word for it, and your anecdotal evidence is pretty astounding considering you're a cancer survivor.

                      You just keep saying things like discussion = pushing Peat guidelines on others, and word of mouth = relentless pushing of a product. It makes no sense, and you're just wrong. I will never tell you what to eat, I will simply give my opinion. your way isn't a one size fits all kind of thing, otherwise there would be no other opinions, and you shouldn't be intimidated by the fact different opinions are being posted here.

                        The worst is when people can't even differentiate between a Liberal and Libertarian. They assume both are the same thing, and I can't stand being lumped with that group of dogmatic, compliant, parasitic leeches who don't even know that their actions are a boon on humanity and society and are successfully pushing back free thought and making racial relations and gender relations much, much worse.

                        Feminism, not even once.

                          Calm down. I never said "advertisement saturation". I just said it is advertised and it is for sale and he presumably does make money off of it.

                          The thing about Mark's whole program is about getting people to be so heathy and nutrient replete that supplements become unnecessary. Ray's articles keep leading back to that underlying problem that can only be fixed with an exogenous substance (which he just "happens" to sell, isn't that nice?). I choose to believe that the human body is not broken by design. But if you sell people the problem, then it is very easy to sell them the solution. Kinda like the same people sell you the wax and the wax remover.

                            He does NOT advise VLC, in fact he recommends against it.

                            Read the book before spouting off such ignorance.

                              I am anti-feminism. I believe in true equality, which means no privileges or discrimination in any direction. Classical liberal.

                                Sure he does. From the Amazon description:


                                - Weight loss is all about insulin; moderate your production by eliminating sugar and grains (yes, even whole grains) and you will lose the excess body fat you desire without dieting—plus you will improve your energy level, reduce inflammation, and eliminate disease risk.
                                - Eating meat, eggs, and a generally high-fat diet not only is healthy but is the key to effortless weight loss, a healthy immune system, and boundless energy.
                                - Slowing down your typical cardiovascular workouts, and incorporating brief, intense strength sessions and occasional all-out sprints can produce fitness benefits far superior to workouts that are much longer and more grueling—and can eliminate the risk of burnout.

                                Oh, the carb curve too. Need I point out everything wrong with that, what you said, and your never-ending ability to dig yourself further into a hole with your hypocrisy?
