L carnitine in seafood

Festin de poissons et fruits de mer

Tous les poissons et crustacés contiennent de la carnitine, mais la morue a la concentration la plus élevée de tous les fruits de mer. Une portion de 100g fournit entre 4 et 7 milligrammes. Le Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch suggère de choisir la morue de l'Atlantique capturée à la ligne à main du nord-est de l'Arctique ou de l'Islande ou de la morue du Pacifique capturée au casier, à la ligne à main ou à la palangre de fond. La morue de ces type de pêche est récoltée dans le respect de l'environnement et présente un faible risque de contamination. Les femmes enceintes ou allaitantes et les femmes qui envisagent de devenir enceintes devraient limiter leur consommation totale de fruits de mer à 300g de poisson à faible teneur en mercure, y compris la morue, par semaine.

The ultimate proof that knowledge is nothing without evidence of results

There is no way to chose without experimental studies that bring evidence. Only low carb diet and low processed food diet that is quite different than low GI diet or low calorie diet were tested in RCTs.

Surprisingly they are not mentioned in this paper.

The first step of health: Skip the Nutri Score and embark on NOVA!

Processed foods are associated with a higher risk of all causes of mortality and CV mortality. Association studies are of poor value about the causal relationship.

  • Group 1 — Unprocessed or minimally processed foods. These are either unprocessed foods or foods that have undergone minimal processing, such as cooking or pasteurization.
  • Group 2 — Processed culinary ingredients. These derive from nature or group 1 foods. They include olive oil, salt, maple syrup, and other items which people may use to prepare group 1 foods.
  • Group 3 — Processed foods. These are foods created using items from groups 1 and 2, such as bread and cheese.
  • Group 4 — Ultra-processed food and drink products. Manufacturers have formulated these food products to be tasty, cheap to buy, and easy to prepare. They include few to no products from group 1 and often contain fats, salt, preservatives, stabilizers, food coloring, artificial flavoring, and refined grains.

Almonds: 50% of fat, 21g of carbs and 21 g of proteins

Almonds: nutritional facts

Some labels are completely wrong:

Raw almonds are around 21g/100g of carbs and 21 g of proteins.



On the left the label is wrong. Like for spinach and iron! Probably a typewrite error. There are around 21g of carbs for 100 g of almonds.









It is a pity to have some discussions like this one, just simple math gives us the solution:

Recipe:

almond flour hydrated with water
raw cocoa
one egg
one full teaspoon of coconut oil

pine nuts 
half spoon of sodium bicarbonate

Cook the mix very gently around 30' at 1/10, by baking in small food moulds or in a pan.


This is a great recipe for no grain almond cake meals after workouts in winter
