Can anyone explain? This is what has made my "yeast-overgrowth"-like symptoms go away, up until I consume more of this group: even natural sugar (honey, 100% maple syrup, raisins, etc.), salt (may or may not be a malefactor) and especially cooked... (more)

Hi, My two cents: Ripe fried plantain have a glycemic index of 90, which is quite high. This rose your blood sugar, which probably made your 6 hours of sleep a 6 hours of low quality sleep. After those 6 hours or some hour or two before your... (more)

Most sucrose we eat is hydrolyzed to glucose and fructose by the enzyme sucrase in the small intestines, although some (likely a small amount) of sucrose will be hydrolyzed in the presence of the acidic medium of our stomach. Personally, I don't... (more)

From my understanding all carbs break down to three camps, fiber, glucose or fructose. So on food labels why doesn't total carbs == fiber + sugars? What is the missing component? Bonus question: for the missing component mentioned above, using... (more)

It's starch. The rest is starch. For the life of me, I never understood why they didn't annotate it in the lower column.

I have these really bad rashes on my arms, could eggs be a contributor? Would it make sense if eggs were contributing to increased intestinal permeability and resulting in an autoimmune response in my skin?

What are you eating in addition to the chocolate? I know that Italy is famous for its pizza and pasta, but also for its eggs, meats, cheeses and fish--good sources of protein and fat. And good olive oil is plentiful. Are you getting enough... (more)

The best thing you can do is get your vitamin d level up around 60~70. That supplementation got rid of my crohns.

If we decide to eat 100g of carbs, we could be eating 50g of sugars (20g of fructose) if we choose bananas or 16g of sugars (4g of fructose) if we choose sweet potato. Maybe the carb-count metric is defunct and needs to be replaced by a count of... (more)
