Re: A healthy diet will help us prosper in this pandemic

Boy you really dug a deep grave for yourself. Shame on you. I distinctly heard Mic say it was not a study of vegans. and he described the weakness of the report. He made it clear it was not a scientific study, just a clue. You should be fired as a mod. Also the time of your 1st post about Mic showed...

Blood tests give a clue

3 years ago my cholesterol was 196 :shock: and i was under 125 lbs. My Dr. wanted me to take a statin, and i said i'd like to try diet 1st. Got down to 135 changing my diet, not taking any drugs. So anybody that goes to their Dr., and you feel fine,and get a normal report, why mess with your diet? I...

Re: Baked my own, experimental NO FAT CHIPS - Horizontal bread/rolls and crunchy snacks pg 2

so now i cut off the hard edge around the bread/roll sheet. about 1/2 inch wide, and put it back in the oven for 2 hrs while it cools down. makes a nice crunchy snack, good for dips too 8)
i still get 24 small rolls, which are much easier to slice without that hard edge :bigthumb:

People need a mission and purpose to have a happy life. Quite often they don't examine too closely every detail.

Re: Solar setup for internal LED panels

I'd not use a battery. I have two 100 watt solar panels. max v around 22v, rated 12v full load. So i'd buy 10-50 of the 3.6v LED's off ebay that are less than $2 for a pack of 10. they sell those "natural color" that cost more, you may want them. i like the cool white better than daylight ...

With a cheap (yes they are cheap now) back yard (no permits needed) solar set up, you can charge an ev for free and with the Lightening you can maybe power some or all of your house too. 8) Try that with a bicycle :lol: And i ride my bike to the store for groceries, so i know what a bike can do :thu...

Re: Can melatonin stop midnight hunger? But it can raise fasting glucose -post 3

My cousin traded in his Toyota. He said it had a knock. I asked him what was knocking, and he did not know, he just figured the engine was bad. Numerous causes of a knock. My friend bought a knocking car cheap, tightened the loose torque converter bolts, and was very happy. Similar with the many typ...

Years ago, i had no idea that high fat diets cause heart disease. And i had no idea why i could only cut grass for 8 minutes a day. :shock: i weighed 133 and there seemed to be no heart disease in my family, so i thought.

Study shows it raises fasting glucose https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/310321 So if i took it the night before my blood test to get a good sleep, that could explain my elevated 116 level. i think the Ha1c is a better test. mine was 5.1 More from Dr Patrick https://www.foundmyfitness.com/epi...

on the fiero, gm used the wrong oil filter which lacked an anti-drainback valve, which led to knock on a cold start, which let to rod failure, which led to a hole in the block with oil spraying out, which led to fires.
