Has anyone come across data on the make-up of the actual kombucha scoby? I know people have come up with interesting ways to eat them. But what are you actually eating?

Have had my vitamix for years, don't use it much because it is so hard to get things out. I am far from a good cook, and I am old, just trying to help my body a little.

One would have to eat a whole container of 10 oz spinach, have to eat nuts and vegetable oils, and eat massive amount of other types of foods to get the daily mg of Vitamin E? Is it just me that's having a tough time with this?

Eat fat and carbs. Fried plantains or sweet potatoes. Poach fruit in cream. Broil cheese over vegetables. Being in ketosis will work against weight gain.

Eating eggs raw is not the best way to utlize the protien. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9772141 smoothies are great though, unless major fat loss is your goal and you need to abstain from morning carbs. Otherwise i would (and do) have the... (more)

Religious calorie counting bears much resemblance to the ritualistic and obsessive eating patterns of Eating Disorders. But can calorie counting (whether for weight gain or weight loss) be a trigger for people to slip into an eating disorder?

If you have a predisposition based on your personality (like an obsessive compulsive disorder for example), calorie counting could trigger some of the conditions you mentioned. Let's face it some people are over-achievers and might try going lower... (more)

Can you afford food bourne illness and a hospital stay? Not that I think luke-warm meat for a few hours is a significant hazard.

Am i experiencing early menopaus due to my thyroid... and how come my levels go up the more my doctor increases Mu thyroxine dosage?

2cbd904ebf34e1df5ccd2ded41ce7c16
schultz 0 · September 30, 2014 at 12:30 PM

You're taking thyroxine, which is T4. The body converts T4 to T3, the active thyroid hormone. This conversion can be compromised by a number of things. I would ask the doctor if you can be put on something like desiccated thyroid or a T4/T3 combo. (more)

Use probiotic foods such as yogurt, cheese, sauerkraut, buttermilk and soy milk in your diet.

How much to cruciferous vegetables affect iodine absorption? I like eating raw kale at cafes and in smoothes when I'm out. If I was to consume seaweed like nori how much would this help if goitrogens interfere iodine absorbtion?
