Is there any evidence that fasting without water is better than with? I have read things like 'one day of dry fasting is better than 3 days of water fasting', but can this be true? If it were, what is the logic? I thought water was used to clear... (more)

First of all, thanks to all who answered my question about coconut milk! Now, how "bad" is it -- or is it so bad? -- to use the sugar-free, flavoured syrups like Toriani and DaVinci? I don't do sugar at all, and am avoiding fruit at present,... (more)

I used to rely heavily on these syrups in my coffee and iced tea. I always avoided anything with aspartame as it gives me migraines and I read that your body processes it into formaldehyde. As I have learned more and delved more into the... (more)

We have both fat and glucose stores (muscle, liver) in our bodies, and in the absolute worst case, protein stores (muscle tissue) which can be broken down and converted to glycogen for energy.   The trouble is that you're going by a very... (more)

This is potentially a very interesting question. Can we tune our fermentation (temperature, salinity and bacteria, since humidity will always be 100%) so as to target specific toxins? In the case of beans we are mostly talking about protease... (more)

It sounds like you overcooked it. If you undercook it the texture is like mush but with a milder flavour and if you overcook it the texture is more like leather and the flavour is stronger. Don't let it sit around unfrozen for very long. Infact, I... (more)

How it will affect you depends entirely on YOU. Examine what led to that binge and what you need to do to avoid that binge in the future: Perhaps it's eating more real, nutrient dense foods at mealtime.  Not having bags of M&M's in your... (more)

The whole point of carb-backloading is to do it with glucose or starch which is essentially chains of glucose, not fructose. Since glucose will elicit an insulin response, in order to shuttle glucose and amino acids into the cells, it is... (more)
