Why are beans so bad? I have no complaints about them and feel strong and energetic. I eat them at leat once a day
I do because I can. I can because I want to. I want to because you said I couldn't.

The starches are too complex to break down easily, fibre, phytic acids etc etc. I couldn't tell you exactly without a bit of reading right now and I can't be arsed. Maybe I could start a thread some time, but I am sure it is not in most peoples interest here.

I was however just looking for an alternative. I remembered reading about how corn was used as a staple in the Americas, they would beat it, mix it with lime or ash and ferment it somehow. The process is called 'nixtamalization': when the process was foregone in later years, on a similar diet, natives suffered from niacin, protein, vit A, zinc deficiencies. Nixtamalisation made the proteins much more bioavailable (though lower in number in scientific terms since it washes away damaging proteins), minerals and vitamins available (the process removes most of the mineral leeching phytic acid),higher in calcium (from the lime), and much easier to digest. I wonder how available such a product is now. It is a very laborious product to make traditionally, the old women spend much of their time bashing corn and preparing this stuff.

Regarding the calcium level: I know dentists who volunteered in Guatemala who noted the natives' teeth were very difficult to extract and their bones were VERY strong.

I only ask cause beans have been the only saving grace with the stomach issues I have had. Soy in small amounts and no wheat. Going back to a vegetarian diet doesn't suit me because I am not fond of eggs or dairy

Just because they are better than wheat and soy doesn't mean they are good by any means.

They are the only thing that doesn't double me over in pain and have me with my head buried in the toilet. I am such between a rock and a hard place.....

Holy shit, my diet has gone to hell today. I woke up to someone calling me, some lass I know wanted to meet me for brunch, I figured why the hell not? She was kind of nerdy, we went to a nice book shop cafe and had pizza and coke (I hate pizza but she was paying). Went back to her place, had more coke and emptied the fridge. Got back to my apartment i'm staying in, my roommate had set out a nice dining set and was cooking pancakes. There was maple syrup, chocolate sauce, cream and sugar sprinkles... so much diabetes. I think she gave me some kind of gift... I will check later once the brain fog has gone from all the pancakes. I feel so sick. She wants to go to a restaurant tonight but I already had plans to do fuck all. I found out maybe 10 minutes ago it is valentine's day, I quite like it.
