    He is a nutritionist, with thousands of clients who have been gluten intolerant. I was just using one example.... why don't you go gluten free for 60 days and see if you are gluten intolerant... might wake you up

    You're assuming that I don't already have a gluten-free diet...

    If you are gluten free thats great, the the majority of americans are not gluten free, and don't even realize that gluten intolerance exists.

    I'd actually contend that the majority of their symptoms is from metabolic acidosis as opposed to gluten problems. Gluten has been a part of the human diet for 1000's of years, especially to those of Mediterranean/Arabic/Persian descent.

    Metablic acidosis is a huge problem in todays world especially with the type of habits most americans have... drinking large quanitities of soda, and eating a lot of foods with a low ph.

    You are right, gluten has been a part of the diet for 1,000s of years, yet only recently we are experience this sensitivity, or intolerance in some people. The reason for that is because of the commercial growing of wheat. The gluten protein is what essientially holds the bread together, so obviously the more gluten, the better the quality of bread. There is just simply MORE gluten in the wheat today than there was 1,000s of years ago and that is the reason for the sensitivity.... when a person who is intolerant to gluten eats it, it is almost like a parisite has gotten into the body... the body attacks it and this is what causes most of the problems... impaired immune function, digestive problems, and possibly adrenal problems as well.

    Here is an article I stumbled across a few months back that can explain it a lot more than I can...

  6. I pointed out, about a year ago, that I feel better when I'm 0-20 carbs per day. I'm not lactose intolerant, I don't have to pop Tums like candy and I don't have 5 bowel movements a day. Wow. I guess I'm gonna give this a try. I get weird rashes and skin issues, too. Hmmm.

  7. Licorice Root Cream can be rubbed on the abdominal as it will aid in burning fat from the stomach. The trade name is called Glycgel.
    Anyone know where I can find this??

  8. licorice root??? ive heard this increases estrogen..now im confused

    Google would help, I think Poliquin has it on his site.

    The active is Glycyrrhetinic Acid, which is found in Eviscerate for example.

    Depends on actives, see above

  10. I wonder if any little thing that boost my immune system is really going to make fatloss easier along with muscle building?

  11. Like other have stated i like some things that were stated but not all. Good read. Keeps you thinking

  12. Is that licorice root cream legit? Does any one have any experience with this?

  13. Noticed this article was super old, but would like to add my .02 anyway.

    I don't think 75% of Americans are carb or gluten intolerant. I think 75% of Americans eat way more than their body needs...I mean, if you ever feel stuffed, and you don't work out, you ate too much. That and 75% of food consumed in the US is utter crap o.O

    Fair, but Id like to know if his comment about immune system and muscle gain/fat loss has any merit at all. I think he says some things that are researched, and some things just to fill space.

  15. The 'moulds' he refers to in peanut butters are not visible moulds but are aflatoxins/mycotoxins.

    Bacya: Glycgel was sold by Thorne Research but actually discontinued some time ago. You can purchase Licorice Lysine Plus by Wise Woman Herbals- this is the brand that CP sells and the only reputable brand of licorice cream I could find. I have heard of many practitioners using it with great success, I am using it now but haven't been using it long enough to pass judgement. On a side note I have been told anecdotally that it seems to work best on people who are already fairly lean i.e., abdominal skinfold is less than 15mm.

    I hope this helps

    If you are interested in gluten sensitivity I attended a seminar by Tom O'Bryan and can happily recommend his work. He is too heavy for a lot of people- one of those listen to it and suddenly freak out and become gluten-phobic types but he quoted a lot of extremely powerful studies.

  17. What was this glycgel spoken about in here?
    Similar to today's Topicals?

    Lift the fücking weight from the floor, or leave it on the ground. The thoughts are supposed to be daunting. The pain is meant to be tormenting.

    Hold the **** up. Proof? This is a blatant lie. Diet doesn't impact blood pH. Especially not enough to cause metabolic acidosis. I draw blood gasses all day and have shut up a few vegan hippies who told me their alkaline diet has changed their life. Studies are all based on urine pH, which is not an indicator of blood pH or straight up eating bicarbonate, which is a pharmaceutical intervention. Not something you will find in food and it only has an acute effect, as your body will drop producing bicarb once introduced. The body is so efficient with regards to blood pH. You have protein buffers, respiratory drive changes, and you can alter the production of bicarb. Your body will hold strong damn near at 7.40 unless you have COPD and you've destroyed your chemoreceptors... Or have some other serious, chronic disease state. I'm on my tablet, I'll go more into detail later if someone doesn't believe me.
