  1. Canned beans or soaked beans? Vitamin D is more efficient for Iron absorption. Have you tried searching the internet "endometriosis vitamin D deficiency"? I prefer raw leafy greens over cooked ones. Have you thought about growing your own leafy greens? Have you thought about taking a magnesium supplement?
  2. Well... there wouldn't be a fluoride toxicity page on wikipedia if fluoride didn't pose any health risks to the public. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fluoride_toxicity I say to avoid fluoride products since the body has absolutely no requirements for fluoride. I use a sensodyne toothbrush since a regular toothbrush strips away enamel. I also use non-waxed floss. I eat leafy greens on a daily basis for Vitamin A/K and I get enough sunhine for Vitamin D. Fat soluble vitamins keep the gums healthy; teeth/bones strong and white.
  3. We aren't gorillas. We have to look at our nutritional requirements. Gorillas have a big colon to ferment cellulose into fatty acids, we don't. We started hunting animals because our fat soure(nuts) ran out. @StevenC Read the stuty. The article is bias. Meat consumption. Until recently, hunting of diurnal, group living primates by bonobos was considered to be absent [32] and detection of DNA from such species in bonobo feces would have certainly been considered to be contamination. From observations at Lui Kotale it is known that bonobos of this population hunt and consume the meat of several primate species. Given the paucity of information on the behavior and food selection of gorillas at Loango, we think that the possibility exists that the results from gorilla feces originate from endogenous DNA that has passed the digestive tract. There are various ways to explain this. First, gorillas, in contrast to bonobos, eat highly carnivorous driver ants that scavenge on carcasses, bones and other animal remains and by doing so could take up DNA from their prey. In this context it should be noted that a detailed morphological analyses of 177 gorilla feces from this region did not yield any evidence, such as hair or bone remains, for vertebrate consumption by gorillas (C. Boesch, personal communication). Real source: http://www.plosone.org/article/info:doi/10.1371/journal.pone.0009419;jsessionid=4223AC5B1F82B47555699DFA2F2E814F
  4. You went well into the details, which I like! Thank you Baby Herc.
  5. @OP You're doing great, IMHO. Incorporating more greens is the way to go! +1 One way to combat this s to rinse your mouth with water right away after eating citruses, it will reduce the acids in your mouth significantly. that and using a straw.It will minimise the exposure of acids to the teeth.Pineapples are even worse tho. Just a warning, don't follow everything durianrider says. He is a nut case that has officially become fat phobic and majorly deficient in healthy fats; oleic acid and omega 6's from nuts and avocados. Natural whole food vegetable fats are nothing like cooked fats and oils. Ripe citrus fruits, pineapple and kiwis contain very little if any acids. The acids are there in the fruit to protect itself from being picked prematurely by animals(we are animals ) that don't follow their instincts. Follow your instincts.. does the fruit smell sweet? Note: Oranges don't ripe once they have been picked. Squeeze the orange, if it feels like the skin is not attached to the inner membrane, its ripe. I can eat boatloads of ripe pineapple.. so sweet!
  6. You're welcome. Mark Sircus sells magnesium chloride. I'm confused about this whole inorganic vs organic. Sites say that we can't convert inorganic minerals to organic ones, only plants can however people are cured from taking magnesium chloride. Maybe beforewisdom should put a sticky in the nutrition section about the importance of magnesium? What form of magnesium did you end up buying?
  7. More fat soluble vitamins will lower BF. Carrot juice, greens, etc.. In the long run, those that shun soaked nuts because of extremism and fat phobia, loose muscle mass because of a deficiency of Omega 6's. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arachidonic_acid#Arachidonic_acid_in_the_body 80 10 10 is a good ratio for the summer. More fat in the winter for insulation.
  8. Thanks for the very interesting scientific article. I didn't know magnesium chloride was inorganic however it has worked very well for me. What is the difference between organic and inorganic? As it functions in the body?
  9. Makes sense. You learn to trust your instincts.
  10. The reason why anyone grabs the chocolate in the first place is because they have a magnesium deficiency. There is a youtube video by a very intelligent young doctor on magnesium deficiency if you wanna check it out. He is the doctor writing on a white board. Magnesium chloride is a good product.
  11. Nothing wrong with nuts after you've lost the weight. Omega 6's are essential for a lot of things in the body, including muscle growth, skin, heart and brain health however they get stored in body fat easily in excess because they are so hard to come by out in nature. Anyways, soaked nuts are super healthy since they contain the vitamins, minerals and water content. Have you tried carrot juice for weight loss? Have you thought about getting rid of the oils or limiting them?
  12. D2 is Vegan, D2 is from mushrooms. Vegan D3 is from lichen and pre-D3 is formed in the skin when under the Sun. Vitamin D3 vs Vitamin D2 I've tried Solgar D3 from sheeps wool years ago and felt so sick after the first supplement, a dose of 2000iu and stopped taking them. The companies use carcinogens to extract the D3 from sheeps wool, a very toxic method. I use Vitashine D3 5000iu's from lichen, Vegan. Absolutely no side effects. I don't take more than 5000iu's per day contrary to whatever anyone says on the internet. You can watch the video in my signature if you haven't already done so, there is a chart somewhere near the end of the video, toxicity chances increase right after 6-7000 iu's. USA customers(based on Vitashine): http://www.ghthealth.com/vitamind3.aspx I don't eat legumes/soy because of the phytoestrogens, they effiminate me with beautiful feminine skin and muscle loss however vegetables don't have the same effect. My protein mainly comes from vegetables.
  13. I bet my life on the wonders of Vitamin D. There is lots of other reasons why menstrual cycle stops; calorie restricting, high carb/low fat, high fat/low carb, and what Gaia said, intense exercise to the point the fatty acids get used as fuel. Missing Menstrual Cycle - No Overt Fats? - The comments are good below the initial topic. I personally don't like tanning beds. I made Vitamin D the first couple of times and then my skin was wrecked to make anymore. The Sun is the best option since it also emits color wavelength which stimulates melanin. I also like sweating under the Sun by playing soccer or running around; the sweat with sunshine tans me. No sunburn. Vitashine is my favorite D3 supplement, no side effects.
