i think bigger fish like tuna and swordfish are the ones to stay away from/really limit....the bigger the fish, the more the mercury. Salmon is a small fish.

i'd guess that the benefits of eating it outweigh the dangers of *not* eating fish.

Here is some data on salmon.  Notice that footnotes on mercury and omega-3's:

Hey congrats on the 54 pounds and everything else!  Very impressive. 

I know someone who has done low carb diets many times - gonna ask 'em if they ever got a Ketone High.  That's a new one!

I read this
10) Protein-to-Carbohydrate Ratio.  The protein/carbohydrate ratio has an interesting effect on free testosterone and SHBG.  Several studies have shown that increasing carbs versus protein boosts total testosterone. However, before you start pounding granola bars, one study found that increasing the protein/carb ratio not only increased total testosterone but also SHBG. [4]  This means that free testosterone may not have been increased significantly because of SHBG's opposing effects.  (Increasing the protein to carbohydrate ratio also increased cortisol, a fact I cover elsewhere on this site.)

what ratio should one have?
or can you forward me the study?

Don't know and I doubt anyone knows the answer to that one.  This is kind of things that is maddening:  someone out there really should have studied this in depth but there's no money in it so it falls by the wayside.

And I don't have the study.  You should be able to get that with no problem, right?

Diet-hormone interactions: protein/carbohydrate ratio alters reciprocally the plasma levels of testosterone and cortisol and their respective binding globulins in man.
Anderson KE, Rosner W, Khan MS, New MI, Pang SY, Wissel PS, Kappas A.
Abstract

The aim of this study was to determine if a change in protein/carbohydrate ratio influences plasma steroid hormone concentrations. There is little information about the effects of specific dietary components on steroid hormone metabolism in humans. Testosterone concentrations in seven normal men were consistently higher after ten days on a high carbohydrate diet (468 +/- 34 ng/dl, mean +/- S.E.) than during a high protein diet (371 +/- 23 ng/dl, p less than 0.05) and were accompanied by parallel changes in sex hormone binding globulin (32.5 +/- 2.8 nmol/l vs. 23.4 +/- 1.6 nmol/l respectively, p less than 0.01). By contrast, cortisol concentrations were consistently lower during the high carbohydrate diet than during the high protein diet (7.74 +/- 0.71 micrograms/dl vs. 10.6 +/- 0.4 micrograms/dl respectively, p less than 0.05), and there were parallel changes in corticosteroid binding globulin concentrations (635 +/- 60 nmol/l vs. 754 +/- 31 nmol/l respectively, p less than 0.05). The diets were equal in total calories and fat. These consistent and reciprocal changes suggest that the ratio of protein to carbohydrate in the human diet is an important regulatory factor for steroid hormone plasma levels and for liver-derived hormone binding proteins.

I finally returned the reverse water osmosis filter to LOWES, i just couldnt find a plumber to install it that I could trust.
I bought a new fridge and a new dishwasher over the 4th of july and the dishwasher installer brought along his son and I liked the cut of their jib, but they didnt do plumping
so I returned it and bought a Stainless Steel Home Water Distiller – Model 100SS from H20LAbs
http://www.h2olabs.com/p-15-stainless-steel-model-100ss
1 yr  warrenty and should last 10+ years..makes a gallon of so of water a day.....so its great for me, I also have glass pitchers to save water. so I can store 3 gallons easily, so its always cold...
pricey at $250, but I buy 1 gallon jugs at 88cents each and lug those home and I dont like the plastic bottles and once I accidently got Spring water and I didnt realize till I was drinking it and I thought the water had gone bad.  This was about 2 weeks of only drinking distilled water...I am very much enjoying the distilled water

That's pretty cool but how does it work (in a nutshell)?  Is it simple filtration or does it a scaled down super collider of some sort?

Water distillation has three basic steps. Water is heated to boiling. The steam is collected and condenses into water droplets on a surface as it cools. The droplets are collected in a storage container. The water is cleansed of heavier elements and impurities such as bacteria that are not carried by water in vapor form.

Yeah, I think it's my hosting company:  it happens from time to time.  A "hosting file" gets locked/disabled.  What's interesting is that the forum was still up and running.

And thx for the distiller info!

I am going to hit up the Little Woman for one of those!  But how does the last filtration step work where it is "cleansed of heavier elements"?  (Sorry, I'm too lazy to Google right now...)

I'm sure what you are asking
the water gets evaporated, which is clean of all chemicals, then when it becomes liquid form again,its clean
then you drink it
what step arent you getting?

I got my water distiller yesterday
http://www.h2olabs.com/p-15-stainless-steel-model-100ss
that's what I bought
It's easy to use, it takes about 4 hours to make one gallon of distilled water, but the machine runs smoothly unattended, so you can run it while you are sleeping, at work, having sex, eating, but not while eating transfats, lets face it, if you are eating transfats this product isnt for you.
