Highly recommend eating lots of eggs every day, provided you do some form of resistance training. Which every man should be doing anyway.

I try to go for 6+ incl yellow part, they are the best. Try to get non factory farmed eggs though. you can drink them raw or cook it whatever you prefer
 
Isn't bone marrow high in cholesterol?
Maybe, but are you suggesting that high cholesterol is a bad thing?

If you take a look at any recipe book from the early 1900s and before, you'll find that many of the ingredients listed are lard, butter, cheese, and eggs. People also ate a lot of bacon (high in fat) back then I'd imagine. Funny how the number of myocardial infarction (i.e. heart attack) cases spiked in the early 1920s and 1930s when nutritionists started recommending partially hydrogenated oils such as vegetable oil as substitutes for frying in fat. Apparently cholesterol doesn't really cause arterial plague (atheroma) but things such as vegetable oil have been linked to heart disease due to the trans fats they contain. Even LDL, the supposedly bad type of cholesterol, may be even more protective than HDL but I am not a food scientist so I can't say for sure. Maybe @Johnnyvee can weigh in here. And due to the trans fatty acids that it contains, even margarine, which many people falsely believe to be healthier for you than butter, is probably endangering peoples' health. Furthermore, statins like Lipitor that are supposed to lower cholesterol, have been known to have negative side effects so I'd be cautious of those.

So I'd say don't worry about cholesterol. Food scientists are paid by the food industry to tell us to eat whatever foods drive up profits: mainly sugar and trans fat (the bad type; saturated is okay) because they are cheap to make and last pretty much indefinitely. And foods that are high in sugar and trans fats will contain less of the good stuff.

Bone marrow, eggs, cheese, bacon, butter are all good for you. Don't let "high cholesterol" scare you away.

I used to be mostly plant based, but I definitely feel better eating meat. I am still moderate about it, just once a day and some days I skip it... but I go for QUALITY meat -- grass fed beef, grass fed butter (these are basically superfoods), pasture raised chickens, pasture raised chicken eggs. Unfortunately I can't find heritage pork, but I will probably start looking for this and other quality meats, maybe some venison.

In addition to grass fed butter, I have lots of coconut oil, avocadoes, olive oil. I'd like to find some good lard too, because this can be very healthy. I agree that cholesterol and fats are so essential for the brain, the body, and the hormones. The war on fat is retarded, although it is important to avoid BAD fats like vegetable oils, trans fats, etc.

Cholesterol is not bad at all! It`s only a potential marker of energetic excess. But it`s really the high glucose and insulin levels that are doing the damage. So when cholesterol is glycated by sugars, due to high blood sugar caused by high intake of refined carbs, it becomes sticky and attaches to the arterial walls. That causes an immune response in the local area, (cytokine signalling) and immune cells are recruited to deal with the inflammation. They also become stuck in the mess so to speak, and there is more cytokine signalling and so on. In the end you will end up with the artery becoming blocked or bursting from this dynamic.

Remember that the cell wall is composed mainly of cholesterol, (or the lipids that are carried around by cholesterol then, since cholesterols are really proteins that carry fats around in the bloodstream) and hence there needs to be ample cholesterol available to cells that need to divide rapidly. Immune cells are those types of cells. So when the immune system is needed, for example in the case of a viral infection or cancer, there is a heck of a lot of cells that are proliferating. That`s why having ample cholesterol available is key to good immune function. (By the way, sunlight convert cholesterol into vitamin D also, so that`s an element to keep in mind as well.)

As for the subtypes of cholesterol, it`s all about what foods we have adapted to over the history of our species. Saturated fat from healthy animals will have a positive impact on the balance of the types of cholesterol, and (refined) carbohydrates will have a negative effect. It`s not the foods themselves that are good or bad though, it`s the question of having time to adapt or not. We have not adapted to these novel industrial foods at all, hence we see all sorts of negative effects when we consume them. We are extremely well adapted to animal foods though, via millions of years of consuming that type of diet, so high fat animal based nutrition is ideal for humans, particularly as we get older in fact. I would say that bone marrow comes close to being the ideal food for humans, it`s really the food of/from the Gods.

This talk sums it up nicely I think...

Ginger is an outstanding spice worth incorporating into your dietary regime.

It has some amazingly powerful antiinflamatory properties, and it is a very powerful stimulant of digestion. In Ayurvedic medicine, where it has seen use for thousands of years to great effect, it is considered a "universal medicine."

And in the soy-infested, testosterone-deficient world we're living in today, it certainly could be a useful adjunct to any dietary program geared towards enhancing male reproductive health and testosterone status:
Seconded on the ginger. I remember one day, out of the blue, I felt nauseous to the point of puking my guts out. Drove to the store and picked up some ginger. Diced it up and put it in some hot water and drank. Felt fine about 5 minutes later.

Nigella seeds aka black cumin have remarkable medicinal properties, they have also been proven to be a very effective natural cure for covid19 based on a scientific study, with a reduction in death rate among the worst group of patients from 18% to 4%. They contain a bunch of compounds that work together to stop the virus, including a quinine compound called thymoquinone, quercetin (which is on the list of medications for covid recommended by the FLCCC), zinc, vitamin C and some anti-inflammatory compounds that address the later stages of covid.

I recently went through two packs of acai berries ( açaí ) , was the first I'd tried that.

The reason was, I'm often on a snake diet intermittent fast, getting ripped and was reading a bit about insulin resistance and how to improve it. Too many years of abusing sugar, and now there are some small fat deposits that are hard to completely displace.

That and Braggs raw unfiltered, unpasteurized apple cider vinegar while fasting.

Acai is not really a fruit high in carbs, it is actually high in fat and protein! I think you're eating more the seeds than the flesh. Taste is okay. What I learned the hard way - without realising it, is that it is a stimulant, if you have it in the evening, you may not sleep. It is probably more useful to eat it fresh if you are in South America, am not sure if I will end up buying a pack again, am a bit lazy to actually eat it.

I thought acai had a ton of sugar. That's why I stay away from it. I do like how it tastes.

I once read that blueerries and apples are among the best fruits for phytochemicals. So I do the literal apple a day and a small bowl of berries (aren't that expensive when frozen, and contrary to popular opinion frozen fruits and veggies don't lose nutritional value in the process).

Also raw veggies cut up with just olive oil, vinegar and garlic taste amazing and you can put in some raw cucumin for the superfood factor.

A couple good apple-eating hacks if you get bored of just plain applies:

1. Sliced apple and a hard cheese
2. Diced apple with oatmeal and real maple syrup.
 
I highly recommend all people that live in the west, to try milk thistle oil. All Americans suffer from some degree of fatty liver. However, it's hard to find quality oil. I bought a good brand last year and now the quality sucks. But if you do manage to get it, the healing effect on your liver is instant, within days you feel your body become a lot stronger, lose weight, get denser, deep voice and full of energy.
A good liver detox combo is choline, inositol, l-methionine, and milk thistle (mentioned above). Choline and Inositol are sometimes sold together. One of the few combos I can't find in liquid form or powders, often have to combine 2 or 3 capsules together to get the effect quickly. These four will bring you back from a hangover the day after.

Don't laugh but I recently was more or less poisoned from the acai / açaí . The stimulant in it is not like coffee, more like tea in a high dose. It has nasty withdrawals when you don't have it the next day. I lost several days of productivity and sleep recently, and trace it back to acai. Will not have any more of that stuff, whatever the supposed benefits are.

After drinking it in a Kurdish restaurant I become a big fan of the Middle Eastern sour and salty drink Ayran. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ayran
Some people consider it to be one of the healthiest drinks you could have https://www.nutritionadvance.com/ayran-drink/

My favorite version is 1kg/1 liter of Greek fat yogurt mixed with 1 liter of cold water and 4 teaspoons of sea salt. Can be stored in the fridge for days.

If you ever felt bloated because food "just sits" in your stomach and no digesting, no more with Ayran.

I've been mixing it up in the morning and sometimes I am drinking a high quality green tea instead of coffee. For those with allergies, or who just want a high quality green tea that taste great, I recommend the Benifuuki Tea--

This gave me a business idea, a chain of drink stands specializing in this, I'll call it Ayran Nation.
