It occurred to me tonight that the reason high carb diets tend work may be because it allows the body to synthesize the right fats. Pure and simple... If you have good gut flora and a healthy metabolism and good insulin response, your body/flora... (more)

Our bodies only synthesize things they *need*, otherwise it's a waste of energy. There are things we need but cannot synthesize.  So in terms of fats… we need omega-3 and omega-6 long chain fats, we cannot synthesize these,... (more)

Your body is pretty good at dealing with both extremes (too much and too little) of protein. So it's not something to worry about too much. If you're trying to pack on the muscle, you'll want to have much more so that you have building blocks... (more)

If you really want to understand what's going on inside your body when you do this read a book called GRAIN BRAIN by Dr. David Perlmutter, MD. Your 1day carb binge is horrible for your entire body!

It seems I get a bet of nausea and acid reflux right after a drink cream on an empty stomach. I use ecological cream and I take lactrase enzymes with it so that the lactose won't be a problem. Why do I get this symptoms?

Michele_7 0 · April 24, 2013 at 1:23 PM

Lactose may not be the problem. Lots of people cannot tolerate casein, which is a protein found in milk. There is no pill to reduce casein, like there is for lactose. A big dose of fat on an empty stomach may cause reflux.
