General Discussion / Sorry I've been missing in action
« Last post by Rita on January 29, 2019, 07:46:57 AM »
Hi everyone,

I don't know if anyone is still reading this forum. I took an 8 month break, because the low carb diet was not working for me, and I really had to figure things out. In that 8 months, I got rid of all my belief systems about food and did a ton of research.   What I found was quite surprising.

I wrote an article about it.   It's a long article, but I think it's worth the read:

Is Diabetes an Infection?   A New Perspective on the Cause of Weight Gain and Type 2 Diabetes

General Discussion / Kefir?
« Last post by hismaimai7777 on November 29, 2018, 01:51:39 AM »
i know this is OT..but I have been experimenting with my milk based kefir grains...they can be trained off milk, although some people claim that they have to be revitalized in milk once a month. so far i have tried coconut milk, coconut water, help milk, rice milk, soy milk, almond milk....

General Discussion / Re: Should you be on a ketogenic diet long term?

For those who prefer to read, there's a full transcript at the WB blog posting of that video.
The way I convey the message is: do chronic keto only if it's the most benign treatment for a chronic condition (but mind the gut flora in any case).
Chronic keto does not appear to be an ancestral diet.
KD is a tool in the Undoctored/WB box for short term use for various reasons. It's clearly a human adaptation for most genotypes, although most likely experienced in the wild as periods of involuntary fasting than as periods of fat-as-only-food.
Chronic keto is a current food fad. In addition to the microbiome concerns, I have to wonder if people doing it are fully informed on key micronutrients to mind (D3, I, Mg), or even optimal fat choices.

It was definitely a psychological response to the diet.

hismaimai2000: so, we started this WOE on Monday.

Which WOE, and if Undoctored or Wheat Belly, based on what reference information?

re: Takes me a long time to fall asleep and then I wake up far more often than usual for me. Is that a common reaction? I don't mind being more alert during the day, but nights are for sleeping!

Here are some sleep tips.

General Discussion / Bean cooking problem??
« Last post by ponsumkey on September 24, 2018, 10:14:42 PM »

Anyone gotten beans that were too hard to digest and caused too much discomfort?  I like to hear what solutions people have tried to solve. What worked and what didnít?


doesn't seem many alternatives to replace protein from wheat. rice is too low. and then there are beans and there are lot of different varieties of bean...

I have not had that issue.  Hope it resolves for you.  I don't
see how more starch or sugar could help though.

so, we started this WOE on Monday. Tues, Wed and Thur nights I have not been sleeping well. I have been far too alert! Takes me a long time to fall asleep and then I wake up far more often than usual for me. Is that a common reaction? I don't mind being more alert during the day, but nights are for sleeping!

Amazing! I truly should be cautious at that point. The uplifting news is I didn't waiver. I'm up to a 26 lb. misfortune and the main thing that isn't becoming alright yet is a decent night's rest.
