Adding barley to your Oat meal will reduce the spike in blood sugar by like 30% in the afternoon and like 12% for dinner.

1/3 of Barley, 1/3 of oats . . . you can also have a 5 grain Oatmeal with Barley, Rye, Oats, and a couple of other grains but its alittle pricey.
Also adding Cinnamon to the oatmeal lowers blood sugar so you dont have a big spike in insulin. cinnamon has chromium and thats why type II diabetes people use.

provide a faster conversion to ketone bodies during exercise
anyone with fat mal absorbtion or gall bladder problems can eat it due to the MCT oil being absorbed the same way a carbohydrate is absorbed.

Buckwheat is a COMPLETE protein grain with 10g protein and 30 carbs per serving with a small amount of fat.
Quinoa complete protein grain with around 7 g protein and 28ish carbs per serving.
Amaranth is the same quinoa in repects to nutrient content and complete protein, except an awesome "hot" cereal with splenda.

Eat artichokes while on a PH cycle. There are SEVERAL studies done on this but I've heard this from a friend whose been lifting and juicing for some time, and hes way more knowledgeable then I.
Why? Some benefits from artichokes.....
Artichokes are a healthy vegetable that help to speeds up the digestive processes by stimulating the release of liver bile. Liver's that don't produce enough bile let cholesterol accumulate. Recent studies from Germany show that people who ate artichokes for 4-6 weeks increased bile production (same time frame as a lot of mild PH cycles?) and lowered LDL cholesterol by as much as 22%! The same study concluded that artichokes may be able to block the formation of new cholesterol in the liver as well. I ate them because of my friends advice, but I had to verify it a bit...it makes sense to me....
the second tidbit not food/nutrition related exactly, but still bizarre, and relevant to the conversation because of the coconut oil comments. I read a study that some researchers believe that coconut oil could be used as a plasma substitute in emergency situations because of its bioavailability, low pH, etc. I thought that this was insane....

Eating watermelon can help produce arginine in the body causing some nitric oxide flow in your blood stream.

- Goat Milk and Kefir Yogurt Drinks are great sources of protein for those who are lactose intolerant.
- If you are lactose intolerance, warming up milk reduces or eliminates the impact
- I read somewhere in several places and articles that Dairy fat (whole milk for example) is not as bad to your health as people thought and as a matter of fact has proven to be beneficial (especially to pregnant women and athletes). For example, Milk Fat contains CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid)

my nutritional tips are more taste based than functionality based. The main functional one I have is that normally something like almond meal or walnut meal is fairly expensive to buy. But if you get one of those cheap blade style coffee grinders, you can buy bulk 2lb or bigger bags of almonds/walnuts/etc at sams club , costco or bjs cheap and make your own meal. Then using a combo of 1/3 almond/walnut meal, 1/3 soy flour 1/3 whole grain wheat as a replacement for regular flower you end up with amazingly normal texture, but can also get away with adding less oil in most recipes as well as having more protein in the pancakes/muffins/whatever. Works super well with banana pecan pancakes. You can go as high as 1/2 nut meal, just at that point texture starts to change. I used to do 1/3 nut 1/3 buckwheat 1/3 whole grain flour, but my wife didn't like the texture.

I am not lactose intolerant, but I do use Real Goodness milk when going low carb because the lactose has been filtered out and there are only 7 grams of carbs (11 grams of protein) per serving. It's a bit pricey, but I wait for sales at my local supermarket and stack the $1 coupons from their website:

I've recently been eating this as a snack in between meals. Dry roasted edamame
10g carbs (8g fiber)
1/4 cup serving. Contains soy beans and sea salt. A nice healthy snack food if you ask me. And it tastes great IMO.

I am interested in using coconut oil before the gym. what type do you suggest? how much do you take? and how long before your preworkout supplement do you take it?

Since plant proteins are incomplete proteins(lacking or insufficient amount of a few amino acids), food combining is recommended to make it a compete protein. For example, by combing grains & legumes (rice and beans) in the same meal, you get the missing amino acids and make it a complete protein .
Now it is known that you donít have to have it in the same meal as long as you have a variety of foods throughout the course of the day.
