  1. I started with 5 ml a day, liked that so increased to 10 ml a day. Still good, energy is up, need for caffeine is down. Increased to 15 ml, found that is too much for me. I didn't feel any increase in energy and I couldn't digest the extra. I've been using a child's medicine syringe. That way I can squirt it to the back of my mouth and swallow quick without tasting it too much. Will it stain my teeth? I brush right after dosing and I'm wondering if I'm being paranoid.
  2. Here's one list I found with google: Black pepper. Brown sugar. Chocolate. Coffee. Garlic. Green peppers. Kidney beans. Leeks. Onions. Peanut butter. Roasted peanuts. Potato. Walnuts. Whisky. Wine. And two guides for figuring out the yin and yang of the food (I was backwards about growing in the sun): http://www.self-healing.com.au/MACRO/Handbookcd/Documents/MACRO/foods.html http://www.macrobiotics.co.uk/yin.htm ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Yin Foods, Yang Foods There are four factors that determine whether a food is yin or yang: • How the food grows (including speed and direction). • Where the food was grown (in northern or southern climates). • The sodium-potassium content. • And the effect the food has on the body (hot or cold effects). In terms of mineral elements, Yin represents foods rich in potassium, while Yang foods are high in sodium. In general, yin foods are considered "cool," larger, have less salt, have potassium, and/or grow above soil. Yang foods are "warm" or "hot," smaller, have more sodium, and/or grow below the soil. In addition to eating yin or yang foods, to maintain balance followers of the philosophy believe you must also eat "cool" foods when it is hot, and "hot" foods when it is cold. In addition to yin and yang, there are five elements, which must also be balanced. Each element is associated with a particular food quality and the ideal meal includes all five. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
  3. Thanks for the friendly invite, but no, not coming north this summer. My hubby and I already have plans to take our boys camping. That's all the vacation we get I'll check out that book too. I appreciate all recommendations.
  4. World Vegetarian Day is fun. I stock up on Soy Jerky there, taking advantage of special pricing for the show. Gotta get there early, before all the vegan ice "cream" is gone
  5. My sifu said for all the yang activity I do, I need to eat yang foods. Usually that is associated with meat. Obviously unacceptable. Which veggies or fruit have more yang? I'm guessing kale, since it's strong and grows in the sun. Chili for sure, because it's spicy. Others? I practice choy li fut kung fu, which has an internal qi moving aspect to it. Hence the need to balance the yin and yang in all things.
  6. Thanks everyone, glad to be here. Robert saw me on Tribe and asked me to join ages ago, and I'm glad to finally post something.
  7. Vegetarian for 3 years, gradually becoming vegan. Have been studying martial arts off and on for 14 years. Started competing in forms in 2005, but laid up by knee injury since February 2006. Both my martial arts instructors thought I would need to eat yang (usually means meat) to protect my tendons from further injury. Obviously that's unacceptable, so I came here to find out what I could do nutritionally to strengthen cartilage and tendons.
  8. I just started liquid chlorophyll yesterday. One tablespoon one hour after breakfast. It was recommended to me to help me wean off caffeine and boost my metabolism. Since it's just alfalfa extract, I figured there would be no harm trying it. Will let you know if I notice any difference. In the meantime, more information from your experts is appreciated.
