    One needs to examine sleep hygiene as well as adrenal imbalances.

    would you say this could be related to feeling tired all day despite enough sleep the night before?

    One needs to examine the proper pathology...
    Again its about sleep hygiene not that you actually just sleep.

    Here's the actual definition:

    sleep hygiene- controlling of all behavioural and environmental factors that precede sleep and may interfere with sleep

    I found that nutrition has fixed my bags. Now that I eat more organic foods. More fruit less grains. Salad n fresh veggies every meal and I juice once a day. Feel like a new person. I wont rant on about how amazing I feel but I suggest every one else look into this aspect of there diet.

    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.

It really becomes an art form of science when getting the desired results.
