    Yea that's what were all taught. I think the truth is coming forward that as far a body composition is conserned its the quantity of macro that mattesr not the source. I'm not saying eat candy instead if yams Cuz its the same marcos but I saying if you juice 2 apples half lemon some carrots n greens the fructose isnt going to make u any fatter than a yam would. Try it out if you don't believe me. As far as health n nutrition goes I its all about the source of your food rather than quantity.

    Yea same I love it.. I totally understand the whole insuline spike stuff I just think some times people take it to far like by thinking fruit is going to make them fat so they eat yams and brown rice all day for carbs. Which is not the best way to diet IMO. I guess that's all I was trying to say.

    I guess I was speaking to the opposite crowd who think that by juicing they don't need to eat whole fruit

    In certain cases I have people alter their eating to put them more into an alkaline state. Again it depends on multiple factors if this the proper recommendation to make to Dr for their patients. This is why one needs a complete detailed medical history, and diet journal to know where adjustments need to be made.

  7. I read somewhere that eating carbs two hours before bed can help induce better sleep

    Having proper glyocogen levels will help this as it helps to produce serotonin. This is why when prepping people for contest, i montor there neurotransmitter and make suggestion to support proper balance to prevent them going purely dopamamine/NE dominant which is not a good thing. It really becomes an art form of science when getting the desired results.

    Is it a good idea to have my own glucometer even if I'm not diabetic?? Was thinking about getting one for the hell of it,, can get it with my flex spending card

  10. If you dab a warm caffeinated tea bag under your eyes it will serve as an astringent, causing them to shrink. Also if you elevate your head slightly when you sleep.
