General Discussion / Racing heart /coffee / wheat
« on: August 23, 2013, 01:26:25 AM »
I just realized another thing.....

Pre wheat free: Small amounts of coffee would give me a racing heart.

Post wheat free: Huge amounts of coffee won't give me a racing heart.

Any of you?

General Discussion / Broodbuik... I mean... WB

How cool, I just found out about the dutch translation of WB:


Food Elements / Apple cider vinegar
« on: June 27, 2013, 03:05:19 PM »
Bought a bottle today to see if it will further improve my bowel movements, I read a lot of good reviews from people with IBS and related.
Might be interesting to some of you.

A link..., there are better ones but this should do:

General Discussion / The meat I buy?
« on: June 27, 2013, 02:56:16 PM »
Here's a link to a video about the meat I buy lately.
This should be ok right?

Food Elements / Fish
« on: June 27, 2013, 06:38:38 AM »
I couldn't find a thread about fish?

Do you eat fish?
How much / often?
Which fish or seafood?

I'm into mackerel and salmon lately, like twice a week it's fish instead of meat, either lunch or diner.

General Discussion / Paul Jaminet / Perfect health diet
« on: June 26, 2013, 03:47:27 AM »

Because of the title / name,  I was a little sceptic at first but found this to be really interesting, indepth and clear (recent science backed as opposed to a lot of personal blogs), I will def. order the book!

There are a lot of similarities between PHD, WB and other currently popular 'diets', but also some interesting differences.
You might want to browse their Q&A section and rest of the site, if you haven't already, cause I seem late to the party.

General Discussion / Primal diet?
« on: June 23, 2013, 04:48:34 AM »
I'm sure some of you came across / read into 'Primal'?

Is it me or is this diet 'just' a way to justify eating loads of all things once labeled bad but people loved so much?

I just don't think our ancestors had access to loads of fat, eggs and meat DAILY.

General Discussion / So far, what DOES work for you and what DOESN'T?
« on: June 10, 2013, 04:43:45 AM »
Over the last year, besides WB, I've been reading a lot of articles, browsing a lot of forums, and some other books. It became more like a journey than just dropping some foods and upping some others.
I assume most of you did / do the same?

I tried quite a few things by now, so I'm curious what you people have tried so far and what does or doesn't work for you.
My goal was / is to get rid of IBS-C, anxiety and related stuff, a little wheat belly, more stable energy level.

Most important stuff I tried:

+ Dropping wheat (and all other grains except for a little rice here and there): worked: belly gone, drop in anxiety / racing heart, less mind fog, more energy, less IBS related crap.

+ Calorie restriction: worked: more energy, downside: I lose too much weight IMO.

+ No junk, refined sugar etc: worked: drop in anxiety, restlessness etc and more stable energy levels.

+ Less coffee: worked: drop in restlessness and racing heart, better sleep.

+ Green smoothies: worked: more energy, helps with digestion.

Good fats:

+ Adding extra (cold) EVOO: worked: more and more stable energy levels, makes meals more satiating, better digestion.

+ Adding / eating straight CO: meh: tends to give me anxiety, I like the taste though.

+ Cooking with CO: meh: no anxiety but no benefits that I'm aware of.

+ Upping meat intake: meh: I can't do the daily huge amounts some primal people are doing and swear by, especially red meat tends to make me slugish. After a couple of days of high meat intake my body tells me to back off for a while. I need it in moderation, like twice a week a moderate piece of decent meat, lean or fatty.

+ VLC to LC: not working for me: anxiety attacks, can't think straight, shakes, weakness, can't sleep, dizzy, tight muscles, not like the carb flu some people report.

+ HC (high carb): not working for me: sugar rushes then tired all day.

+ MC (moderate carb) : worked: stable energy levels, I'm around 75 to 100 daily ATM

+ Fermented /cultured veggies: worked: much better digestion, less anxiety. I add a little to each meal.

+ Pro biotic supplements: meh: not sure, will stick with them a little longer.

+ Papaya enzymes: worked: better, easier digestion.

+ No dairy: meh: I know it's better, I haven't had it in years, besides fermented just recently and some whipped cream every now and then, but I don't feel any different.

+ Upping veggies: worked: raw they give me more clarity and energy, steamed, cooked etc they seem to be more nourishing. Same with fruit.

+ Omega 3 supplements: worked: less anxiety, more clarity.

+ Chia seeds: worked: better digestion.

+ Solo meal: worked: better easier digestion but very boring.

+ Food combining: worked: seems it works to have fruit seperate from other foods but I like combining fruit with veggies.

I guess most things in moderation in my case.
O wow, long post lol, sorry for that.

General Discussion / How many carbs do you (try to) get daily?
« on: June 07, 2013, 10:56:18 AM »
Who is counting carbs?
How many do you aim for daily?

If I go lower than around 50 or so for a couple of days or a week or so, I start have these weird shakes and / or anxiety attacks.

I try to keep it arround 75 to 100. I get carbs from fruit and veggies,  to up them a little I added sweet poato.

Food Elements / Erythritol (sweetener)
« on: June 03, 2013, 09:09:50 AM »
Any of you use this?

0 GI !!!

Erythritol is the sugar alcohol (polyol) that has the least impact on blood sugar.

General Discussion / Shocking video on food / overconsumption
« on: May 27, 2013, 05:43:14 AM »

Makes me want to cut down on meat and go with strictly grass fed.

General Discussion / High-fiber sources?
« on: May 15, 2013, 01:25:10 PM »
What are your sources for fiber?

General Discussion / Who is still on oatmeal?
« on: May 13, 2013, 02:35:33 AM »

I know WB advices against it cause it 'only' will give you insuline peaks.

ATM I'm OFF ALL grains and feel a little weak / shaky / anxious at times, I suspect this is due to the low carb nature of WB, looking back I think this started to creep in after ditching oatmeal as the last grain I was having on a daily basis.

I try to model my diet after WB and 'The Food Hourglass' (NOT the same as the hourglass diet)... basically the same set of 'rules' with a couple of exceptions, one being contradicting views on oatmeal.

WB: ditch all
TFH: ditch all but oatmeal

So, who is still on oatmeal and why?

I'm considering going back as a test to see what happens to shakes / weakness.

Off Topic Discussions / The Food Hourglass (book)
« on: May 06, 2013, 01:38:31 AM »
This is a book I'd like to recommend, (bestseller over here) a nice addition to WB and / or visa versa, some of the stuff might not agree with WB but a lot of it does.

The book is in dutch only right now but an english version is in the making.

The blog is in english already:


General Discussion / Fitness: who's working out / running / walking?
« on: April 24, 2013, 03:13:12 AM »
I'm trying to go for a walk (1 hour) at least 3 times a week.

Just started working out at home, used to go to the gym but takes too long.
I do push-ups and some lifting a couple of times a week, still figuring out a decent regimen.

Will start jogging again as well, like 2 times a week, just half an hour or so.

General Discussion / How much chocolate do you eat?
« on: April 23, 2013, 02:27:49 PM »
I'm at a couple of 86% squares a day.

Did you just drop wheat?
I dropped all grains and diary, I also upped my greens and good fats.

General Discussion / How to halt weight loss?
« on: April 21, 2013, 04:14:59 AM »
Hi all,

I was never overweight, just a lil wheat belly, which basically is gone now that I eliminated wheat from my diet, along with the belly, of course, I lost overall weight as well.
Daily green smoothies resulted in even more weight loss.
I would like to halt this, in a healthy way...

Any thoughts?

More good fat? more carbs?

General Discussion / Who's into green smoothies?
« on: April 18, 2013, 11:18:30 AM »
I recenty started 'eating' green smoothies and today I had my first ever hardcore non fruit green smoothie.
Who's into green smoothies and / or blended salads?

Less IBS symptoms.
