    Heavy cream is back in dairy. It's normally in little paper cartons. Its where you'd find half and half, etc.

    Q. What is heavy cream? If you have to make it, how, or where can you buy it?

    A. Heavy cream, also called heavy whipping cream, has a fat content of between 36% and 40%. Light cream has between 18% and 30% butterfat (but generally on the low end of the scale), and light whipping cream has between 30% and 36% fat. If you find a carton in the store labeled whipping cream, it is bound to be light whipping cream. Many, many supermarkets carry heavy cream, but perhaps you should ask the manager at yours if it is available.

    Hey, I don't know how I (and everyone else) forgot this one:

    Oysters

    After giving your arms a miniature workout opening the shells, half a dozen medium oysters will give you just 57 calories, over half a gram of omega-3 fat (and only a trace of omega-6), 0.6 grams of saturated fat, 0.3 grams of monounsaturated fat, 6 grams of complete protein, and five whole days worth of testosterone-supporting zinc.

    I would vote for this being a separate sticky on its own. I like the fact that people in their post explain how x foods work for them and y foods don't, so that someone reading the thread can get a sense of the variety in the impact of various foods and can pay attention to their own reaction to various foods.

    I am not high on the legume foods (the various beans and their derivatives, such as hummus) during fat loss. They always make me feel bloated and unsatiated at the same time. I am always hungry if I have a meal primarily of them. And frankly, I know this will anger the vegetarians... but I just don't buy the protein they are supposed to provide. I feel much better after a whey and water shake than a soy milk shake.

    I want to add another bump for water and heavy cream.

    I like and eat just about everything else but I slow down on fruit when I am being more clean. Unless I feel a binge coming on... I find they are great for stopping a sugar/fat binge, for which I am always at risk.

    Is there a way to vote for organic and grass-fed varieties of foods?

    Fibrous veggies should be on top of the list if it isn't. :)

    Probably because in addition to protein, those foods are also rich in omega-3 fatty acids.

    I also read that saturated fats increase blood sugar/raise insulin/and raise GI. Where mono/poly lower blood sugar/lower GI/lower Insulin.

    This is the reason I think the saturated fats in heavy cream are recommended in PWO shake.

    I read this on a discussion with the top nutritionists that were arguing some of the reasons where P+C and P+F meals do not make sense. The saturated fats issue was of primary notation in that article.

    Organizing information is not to be underestimated. Many consulting companies make huge amounts of $$ taking a ton of data "out there" and converting it into something meaningful.

    We have a saying "Data is not information, it must be tortured to confess" you are an excellent data torturer =D

    Great post.

    Hey! Interesting read! :)

    I saw Whole Wheat bread on there, currently I'm trying out Ezekiel's "Flouless Sprouted Grain Bread". It makes great toast and I think it's as healthy as Whole Wheat???

    I always thought pork was not a meat to eat during weight-loss, was more fattening than other meats..??? That is interesting to see it on the list. :)

    Thanks for taking the time to put this together, it's helpful....:tu:

    Ha! you just described my thesis. I guess I have become quite good at torturing data into telling me something. Is this quote attributed to anyone? I may just have to use it in my Defense talk.

    I haven't heard of the bread, so I'm not sure what it is. Wheat bread usually means that extra stuff that is usually removed to make white bread is not removed.

    this article has some methods for telling if something is whole wheat http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whole-wheat_bread

    I think there is nothing wrong with lean pork chops. Now, bacon, sausage, and baby back ribs are another story.
