It’s something I don’t really understand. It’s like saying, you have a diet of higher fat that is not conducive to high metabolic rate, but you add in a few hormones and it’s fixed. But if the fat diet provided enough energy, why do these hormones naturally decline in the first place? How can hormones compensate for an energy problem?
I think Edward must have a good explanation for this, because his posts have hinted about good thyroid not being incompatible with higher fat ratio.
The underlying explanation is that there is a difference between saturated free fatty acids and polyunsaturated free fatty acids. Essentially you self-induce mitochondrial diseases with polyunsaturated free fatty acids; you can’t do that with saturated free fatty acids. There is a longer post here but sadly no time. Sometime after the 16th.
