Comments

 After marveling that almost no-one ever comments on my blog, I've just noticed that there are loads "pending moderation".

Not quite sure what is going on, as I've not been receiving notifications for these, but I'll go through them.

Of course some junk spam comments have gotten through.

Typical Google software.

  1. Just wanted to say I really enjoy your blog, but don't feel the need to comment except to say thank you. I've learned so much from you

  3. I also enjoy and value your blog Tucker. Peter at Hyperlipid is doing great foundational work. But his blog is hard for the layman to engage with - it assumes lots of prior technical knowledge (which I don't have). You've got the knack of putting the science together and then making it understandable and approachable. Looking forward to your book. I've left a few comments here in the past and I did notice that the comments section seemed empty and abandoned. I assumed you had become totally fixated on Twitter (which I don't use) at the expense of your own back yard.

    1. Thanks for your kind remarks, Kevin!

      "I assumed you had become totally fixated on Twitter (which I don't use) at the expense of your own back yard."

      At one point Twitter was a better way to interact with the scientific community. I clearly need to tend to my back yard.

  4. Priceless work Tucker. Have followed for years, and keep reading and learning. My personal bet on eliminating n6 follows your insight, also (when i can unravel 30% of it), Peter D's. While i look out for contrary arguments... I'm not knowledgeable enough to add to the discussion.

  5. I found you from being a long-time Hyperlipid fan (since 2010). You've certainly connected some great new dots in the puzzle. I am also intrigued by Brad Marshall's hypothesis that the "post-obese physiology" might be actually be reversed by long chain sat fats + SCD1 inhibitors (rather than merely managed by HFLC eating). Any thoughts on that?

    1. I don't think Brad really adds anything to the conclusions that Peter and I have come to: avoid linoleic acid. I don't think there's anything unique about stearic acid, and am reluctant to use any SCD1 inhibitors, as we are lacking knowledge about a lot of the details of these processes.

  6. Hi Tucker, I just listened to a podcast with you and Dr Mercola. I thought it was very interesting but a lot of it was over my head. I am eager to apply your advice about avoiding linoleic acid as much as I can but need help understanding HOW to do that. For example, should I avoid nuts? What about CLA suppements? Thanks for sharing your knowledge!

    1. I avoid nuts. They're an "industrially processed food" in the quantities we are able to eat them in now, and they are very high in n-6. I continue to eat occasionally as snack.

      I get my CLA from dairy and ruminants, and don't supplement. I've seen a number of papers indicating too much CLA is a problem, so until we get that sorted out, get it the way Nature intended.
