I just had a really hard stool, very uncharacteristic since this diet. I've been drinking almond milk lately. Is that what did it? Anybody wanna corroborate? Edit: It's "almond dream" brand. Edit number two (no pun intended): It's "almond breeze" (more)

Nuts in general can make you constipated. Dropping nuts from my diet solved that problem for me.

I bought some conventional beef bones and made a broth out of them. The outcome tasted vile to me. Not exactly taste but my body was repulsed by it- so probably because there is all sorts of CRAP in conventionally raised cows. On the other hand... (more)

I was in my local Costco this weekend and discovered a 3 lbs pack of Organic Ranchers ground beef for $13.99 ($4.66/lbs). While it doesn't label the meat as "grass-fed", a visit to their website says that their cows are grass-fed. Although their... (more)

The more whole the grain, the greater the phytate and lower the mineral bioavailability. If this is in a meal by itself, it's no big deal, but if you are combining it with meat/organs, it's not out of the realm of possibility that it could... (more)

DNA is not being changed, you read it wrong and the title is stupid. Its about miRNAs, very short nucleotide sequences that suppress specific gene. So you may get your DNA expression changed for some short time since miRNAs are degraded by the... (more)

If you really want visible abs, then you may have to recalibrate to get them, but you may also have to deal with the fact that your body may not "want" you to have them. You may also have a bit of loose skin that needs time to tighten up, so... (more)

I've taken valerian before and it is, IMHO, the best "natural" sleep aid around. I wouldn't recommend it as a nightly, or even semi-nightly thing, however, as it can leave you groggy, but it is a great help on those nights where you are amped up... (more)

From a purely "cooking" perspective, I can't think of many applications for ground beef any fattier than 70% lean. Most uses for ground beef in modern "Western" cooking will call for 75%-85% lean. You'll probably just end up scraping up a lot of... (more)

The reason you might not want to eat a lot of yeast is that there is a lot of RNA in it. When nucleotides are digested, large amounts of uric acid are produced. It's really a very similar effect to the metabolism of fructose given that fructose... (more)
