One of the most visited articles on the slimbirdy.com website is this one – What I eat in a day. People are trying to see what others eat on a Ray Peat style diet as well as their calorie intake a day. Just to see how it differs from what they are doing, to get the results they want.
It’s true. There are metabolism boosting foods. Coffee is one of them. But in ALL cases they must be consumed in a certain way to trigger the metabolic benefit. Continue reading
At the start of my Ray Peat style diet journey, everything I read at the time said to balance your macros at every meal.
So that’s all three macros – protein, fats and carbohydrates.
One reason was blood sugar balance. The other main reason, was to make sure you were getting all your macros in for the day in the correct proportions to be beneficial.
So far so good. Logically it makes sense.
Does eating dairy foods give you big boobs and belly fat?

There is no doubt that cheese is a wonderful food in the Ray Peat line up. When weight loss is a consideration however, the protein vs fat equation comes into play in all the cheeses you are eating.
This post was inspired by two of the members of our private Facebook group who were discussing cottage cheese and the fact that it was awful and tasteless. Another issue was gut irritation.
I just wanted to give everyone an update on my super low fat diet experiments.
As you may or may not know, since about June 2020 (4 months,) I have been trying to have only 20g fat a day, (10% of my 1,800 calories.) This was spurred on by the desire to lose about 5kgs (10lbs) within a Ray Peat diet framework.
(10% of calories was deemed to be the magic level where weight loss was more likely, along with a wider margin of calories allowed to no adverse effect.)
I frequently get asked what I eat in a day. So I thought I would document it, to help others out.
- Note I have updated this to reflect the fact that I am not doing super low fat of 20g a day (or 10% of calories any more.) Click here to read why this came about.
So overall I aim for 1,800 calories – 100g protein, 40g of fat and the rest carbs per day. I won’t always hit these targets, as measuring and counting every ounce of food I eat is not conducive to a balanced, happy life for me. However every quarter or so, I plug everything into cronometer.com to see what’s what, and if anything needs adjusting.

First up – what is it?
After 10 years on a ketogenic diet, I can unequivocally say the keto diet causes hair loss!
It was coming out by the handful and not growing back, until I made some changes.
