Interviews: The Hampton Creek Team Answers Your Questions

trout007 Re:Cholesterol (43 comments)

I realize everyone's body is different but I have done quite a few experiments trying to figure out what to eat. For 2 months I ate 3-4 eggs a day for breakfast. I really like eggs but by the end I was getting tired. I have always had high LDL (150-170 range). Eating the eggs had zero effect over 2 months. What had worked for me is what you are suggesting. I try to get the majority of my calories from good quality natural fats. The Plant based ones are coconut oil, olive oil, and palm oil. These are actual oils you can get out of plants just by grinding and squeezing. I also get some from nuts and avocados. I avoid the ones you talk about that require chemicals to extract them from the plant before being mostly removed'. The animal fats are mostly heavy cream, butter, and to a less degree from meats. As a 40 year old man I went from 215 to 175 and have kept this weight off for over 2 years.

As for my cardiovascular health indicators everything improved with this way of eating with the exception of LDL which is still where it was. But HDL has increased and Triglycerides have gone way down as well as blood glucose levels. Plus I feel as good as I did when I was 20 where I felt like crap through most of my late 20's and 30's.

Again this is a one person experiment and I don't know if I'll die from a heart attack when I'm 60 but I'll take how I feel over contradictory theories proposed by the pharmaceutical industry.

Elon Musk Talks "X-Wing" Fins For Reusable Rockets, Seafaring Spaceport Drones

trout007 Re:He's not just speculating (96 comments)

NASA doesn't build rockets. They write contracts for companies to build rockets. The reason SpaceX is building rockets today is thanks to previous developments due to NASA contracts and current NASA procurement.

Doubling Saturated Fat In Diet Does Not Increase It In Blood

trout007 Re:Interesting though not to be overinterpreted (251 comments)

Right on the money with #2. During the work week when I'm not moving much I have 2-3 coffees with cream from 5am to 5pm with no discomfort. At 5pm I eat a big meal and I'm good until the next day.

Doubling Saturated Fat In Diet Does Not Increase It In Blood

trout007 Re:Control the carbs and you control blood lipids (251 comments)

Same results here as I'm drinking a coffee with heavy cream. I now get about 50% of calories from fat (mostly saturated).

Everything improved with the exception of LDL which is still high 160. HDL went from 40's to 60's. Triglycerides in the 70-80's, glucose in the 60's and I'm down from 210 lb to 170 lb.

These aren't my theories I just find some of them interesting. It makes some sense that there should be a charge differential between a region close to the sun and far away. I am actually looking forward to the data.

Study: Body Weight Heavily Influenced By Heritable Gut Microbes

trout007 Diet causes change in those microbes (297 comments)

The microbs thrive in different environments. I went from a standard american diet to something more high fat low simple carbs diet with lots of fermented foods. Not only did I lose a bunch of weight but most digestive, allergy, and skin problems went away as well. I think there was something about the microbial environment that a high sugar diet caused that was giving me trouble.

trout007 writes "My company has been in the clam farming business for many years now. We realized that our clams are taking the CO2 out of the atmosphere and locking it up into their shells. We have decided to expand our business into the Carbon Sequestering Market. Our business plan is to find people that can invest $1000 in capital to sequester 1 ton of CO2. That $1000 will pay for the seed clams and labor to plant them in our lease in the Indian River, Florida. When we harvest the clams 2 years later and sell the clams at market the investors will get back their investment plus $200. So they can lead a carbon neutral live AND make money doing it. As a /.er I thought I'd write to see what people here thought about it. Our webpage has information on how the process works. www.carbonclamup.com"
