  1. Thanks for all the great information! Wonder what your thoughts on taking multi-vitamins which typically have “anti-oxidants” in them? Would they dampen The Signal?

    1. Personally, I would never take an anti-oxidant as a supplement. They totally mess with your underlying biology.

  2. Hi! A genetic report has told me that I may have a disposition to gaining weight on a diet with more than 22g daily of saturated fat.More specifically, A double Variant gene APOA2 causes a person to produce less apt A-II protein, and weigh more on a diet with high saturated fat. What is your thinking of this?

    1. You’re not the only one to ask this. Truthfully, I haven’t had time to look into the issue but it’s on my radar.

      If I get time I’ll post something about it on the blog. Good luck!

  3. Hi Brad, I heard you on Ben’s podcast and want to order. I live in Calgary and not letting me ship. Is there a workaround? No problem sending you my visa # and I can pay for UPS or however best to ship…

    Thank you,

    1. Hi Frank!

      Yes, I’m currently having technical problems with my shipping software. I’m hoping to get it straightened out this week, check back in!


  4. Hello Brad,

    Thank you for this very interesting blog. I have been reading it through multiple times, and I am also currently digesting some of your stearic acid as a write.

    I was just reading (again) about the mice experiments


    and noticed that in the second study mice that ate stearic acid were the leanest, which sounds good. But then I realised that they also ate more than the other groups. If ROS is satiety, why did they eat more? It makes sense that they did not get fat because of IR, but did they also increase their metabolic rate because of stearic acid? If metabolic rate increased, could that explain why they needed more food to get satisfied without getting fat?

  5. Brad –

    Where can we see a list of all the antioxidants to avoid?

    So many questions:

    Vitamin C: avoid or not?
    Iodine: avoid or not?
    Quercetin, Resveratrol, N-Acetyl-Cystine …
    and the list of questionable antioxidants goes on.

    1. Personally I would avoid all of them, unless you’re in late stage diabetes. Then they may play a role.

  6. Excellent podcast. Regarding the 1970 French diet and years before, did the French use Einkorn flour before the newer hybridized flour? Was that also the case in the upstate NY 1940s study? I wonder, if they did; has that made a difference in obesity, metabolic disorders etc. Keep up the good work!

    1. It’s an interesting topic and one that I don’t know the answer to. The modern wheats, as I recall, were produced in the 40s through 70s and spread around the world fairly quickly. IDK when they got to France.

  7. Hi! I’m doing this diet, but instead of feeling satiated, I’m constantly hungry. I guess I’m one of those people whose metabolism revs up with this diet. Do I just need to work through the constant hunger and hope it gets better, or do I graze thoughout the day?
