Weight Loss

Eating a low-carb diet doesn't necessarily result in weight loss. As long as the body gets enough fat and protein for the liver to use in producing ketones, our fat stores will remain untouched.

Those who are used to counting calories shouldn't have any trouble calculating that. Figuring it out is simple: just multiply the amount of food consumed by the a…

Flavor

At birth, humans only appreciate the flavors sweet and umami (this means meaty/savory and doesn't necessarily have anything to do with glutamate, as is often falsely claimed). Sour and bitter are rejected. This ensures that breast milk tastes good to us, since it delivers the essential nutrients lactose (sweet) and protein and fat (umami). These preferences can change in the course of life or through a culturally-distinct learning process, but nature has given us humans a general preference for …
