I need ur opinion on something: I just came back from seeing a naturopathic dr due to my digestive problems and he suggested that I cut back on my activity (he said that the amt of activity I am doing is causing a lot of lactic acid in my body that is causing the digestive problems. He suggested doing Messner's workouts---2x/week, 1 body part to failure. IDK if i can live on that little activity!)He also suggested that I cut back (if not cut out) the soy and instead eat eggs! YIKES! I've been a vegan since I was 12.... it's not only my identity, but also a big part of my morals. However, I can see his stance on the egg thing. Whats ur opinion? Are range-free cruelty-free? what about the activity level?
I am no expert but I would also questioning his recommendation. Is this a new Naturopathic DR for you ?
First reducing exercise may not be the answer for the digestive issues. If you do some research on Lactic Acid you will find it is an important AID in digestion ...and also when you train the lactic acid is created in the muscle (isn't it..?) and not in the digestive system. I think this is more complicated than can be covered here.
I would keep the exercise in. Add the rebounder to you routine if you can afford to get one. I love the rebounder, great for the problem you state.
I know that Soy binds me up, my husband too. Infact we have eliminated it from our diet. Fermented Tempah may be a good option for you as it is easier to digest.
Also add some Kale, Spinach deep greens to the diet. Put them in a Juicer (or Smoothies too) to get the high concentration of Protein. I juice a large head and drink it. I could never eat that much Kale cooked or in a salad. Also can make soups cold in your food processer from spinach, brocoli, arugula to boost plant protein.
Nutribionic makes a great Rice Protein, low carb and fat, hi protein...and it is low heat processed.
