  1. High protein with low carbs/fat is known as rabbit starvation. Ketosis works best with sufficient fat, moderate protein and low carbohydrates. Too much protein = too much gluconeogenesis and therefore too much glucose which prevents ketosis. It takes our mitochondria a couple of weeks to efficiently burn long chain fatty acids as fuel and not feel weak. Heavy legs are an indication of no glycogen stores and on the right path towards burning fat as fuel. Then comes the bad breath as the microorganisms that grow on sugar die off. Then clear skin that looks 10 years younger sets in. Fasting and/or sleeping for a couple of days is the best way to get into ketosis. Once in ketosis; it is best not to carb load as it can cause temporary shaking (ketoacidosis). Ketoacidosis is too many ketones and glucose in the blood at once. www.youtube.com/watch?v=dR1FCJS8DoM
  2. Great to hear. You won't regret it. There is plenty of nutritious and delicious organic dried fruits, oily seeds, nuts, leafy greens, etc.. if you have trouble finding food to eat. I also recommend taking the 5000iu Vitamin D below monday to friday during the winter months if you aren't able to produce it. https://store.veganessentials.com/vegan-vitamin-d3-capsules-by-global-health-trax-p3609.aspx
  3. Pesticides. Try all Organic. I did the whole linking certain foods to certain places of the body where I would get acne. Bananas - chest acne, gluten/legumes - acne shoulders, dairy - acne back/face, blueberries - acne on the side of my face, fabric softner for underwear - acne on my butt cheeks, etc.. and when I tried the same foods in Organic... no acne occurred. Obviously the pesticides we consume are killing our good bacteria and our bacteria fights back by causing inflammation.
  4. This (5000iu dose everyday until you feel the steel rod as a backbone and then switch to every second day): https://store.veganessentials.com/vegan-vitamin-d3-capsules-by-global-health-trax-p3609.aspx And avoid push ups. They over work the front deltoids which leads to muscle imbalances. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deltoid_muscle
  5. Its a great idea however it isn't my idea. We use to as a society grind seeds with devices like a mortar and pestle. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mortar_and_pestle http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Molcajete I edited my post about Cantaloupe/Canary/Honeydew melon seeds being toxic when sprouted/germinated. Do you consume rancid nuts from bags or do you purchase whole nuts? Have you also noticed that Organic almonds are superior in nutrients and taste? I've tried whole pecans from USA yesterday and they were delicious. The pecans halves sold in bags are rancid and obviously taste nasty. What I can say is that I am learning about the importance of simplicity, going back to our natural roots and eliminate this capitalistic dragon that's causing a food dependency.
  6. My quote is: "If said food inflames your Gingiva, it will inflame your digestive system." Like I replied here (http://www.veganbodybuilding.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=37200) regarding leaving behing unhealthy high carb grains/legumes/oils and moving towards high fat oily seeds, fruits and vegetables. I've been where you are and have tried legumes recently when they were offered and they inflamed my Gingiva. Hope this brings awareness.
  7. What has worked for me for me is grinding oily seeds very well in a coffee grinder and then adding them to my blended smoothies. Eventually I will invest in a manual poppy seed grinder. Some notes though: Pre-blended store bought seeds like flax seeds/chia seeds haven't been blended enough to break apart the bonds and I swear they squeeze the fats out to make flax seed oil and sell us just the fiber. Buy whole seeds and blend them yourself. Poppy seeds safe intake dose: http://nutritionfacts.org/2014/09/11/overdosing-on-poppy-seeds/ My list of seeds: Flax seeds Chia seeds Poppy seeds Cantaloupe/Canary/Honeydew melon seeds (I drain them in a colander and dry these with a cloth or cheap paper towels, from the cantaloupes I consume) Do not rinse them or add water to them since these sprouted/germinated seeds are TOXIC. Sesame seeds Hemp seeds Pumpkin seeds Raw pistachios These seeds improve hand writing, increase cranial and sexual organ size. Enjoy. I don't consume grains, legumes, roasted nuts/seeds and other gut irritating seeds.
  8. All your problems are indicative of low Vitamin A and D levels. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2906676/ I recommend taking a 5000iu dose of Vitamin D every morning for 14 days because it usually takes 12-14 for the human body to convert enough inactive vitamin D into active vitamin D and then take it every second day; if you experience insomnia, spread out the dose to every 3 days or more; you'll need to experiment with the correct dose for you. Also consume (more) raw leafy greens while taking Vitamin D so you're able to produce very powerful Vitamin A/D heterodimers that promote growth. When you experience a metal rod feeling in your spinal cord; that is when you have enough Vitamin D and nutrients from greens to build your body. http://store.veganessentials.com/vegan-vitamin-d3-capsules-by-global-health-trax-p3609.aspx Other beneficial foods are hemp seeds when chewed properly, flax seeds ground up in a coffee grinder and added to smoothies with ripe bananas, spinach, strawberries, apples, oranges, etc.. UNCOOKED WHOLE PLANT FOODS. Steamed food I don't considered cooked. You might consider purchasing a non plastic steamer to steam a variety of vegetables. My biggest no no's are all oils and roasted nuts/seeds because of the lipid radicals that cause inflammation; grains, canned foods, and refined/processed foods since I can't consume them raw. Regarding physical activity; walking long distances does contribute to muscle growth and increased hormone levels. http://www.peaktestosterone.com/Walking_Testosterone.aspx I hope this knowledge will be of great help to you.
  9. MORGEDAL foam mattress from ikea seems free of animal products with a 80% satisfaction rate. I dislike futons; too thin.
  10. Turn off technology. http://www.health.harvard.edu/newsletters/harvard_health_letter/2012/may/blue-light-has-a-dark-side/
  11. Of the five top-selling imported “extra virgin” olive oil brands in the United States, 73 percent of the samples failed the IOC sensory standards for extra virgin olive oils analyzed by two IOC-accredited sensory panels. The failure rate ranged from a high of 94 percent to a low of 56 percent depending on the brand and the panel. None of the Australian and California samples failed both sensory panels, while 11 percent of the top-selling premium Italian brand samples failed the two panels. Sensory defects are indicators that these samples are oxidized, of poor quality, and/or adulterated with cheaper refined oils. http://olivecenter.ucdavis.edu/research/files/report041211finalreduced.pdf Then there is other contributors to cancer as we already know.. air pollution, second hand smoke, overcooked food, inactivity, etc..
  12. Your body needs the nutrients in leafy greens to repair itself. Try a salad per day and see how you feel.
  13. Fasting increases hormone levels however walking 10 kilometers non-stop per day is much better at raising hormone levels and you'll gain a strong core for the effort.
  14. 1. Doctors and nutritionists ARE NOT biochemists. 2. Not all fats are the same. Fatty acids in seed oils are exposed to oxygen during manufacturing which leads to the production of lipid peroxides(also known as lipid radicals). Lipid peroxides are one of the major sources that cause modern day diseases. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lipid_peroxidation (I know you don't mean oils but its good to distinguish the different types of fat sources). My observation on cranial evolution. Copied and pasted from an old thread. ================================================= You’ll have to read this.. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prostaglandin And this… http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neurotrophin To understand this… http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15044028 Vitamin K and the Nervous System: An Overview of its Actions http://advances.nutrition.org/content/3/2/204.long The neuroscience seems to indicate that high intake of leafy greens mainly for Vitamin A/K and nuts/oily seeds for the non-oxidized Omega 6 fatty acids are required in high amounts with sufficient serotonin to produce enough series 2 prostaglandins, which are required to increase neurotrophin levels, which eventually increase the number of neurons. I haven't seen any research which indicates that Omega 3 fatty acids increase neurotrophin levels by themselves; they seem to work in conjunction of the Omega 6's. ———————————————————————— http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10509750 http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/2544927 Prostaglandins are required to remodel the skull and the series 2 prostaglandins (made from Omega 6) are more effective at bone resorption/remodeling than the series 3 prostaglandins (made from Omega 3). ————————————————————————- http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18348265 Vitamin D3 inhibits the production of series 2 prostaglandins. Those living further away from the equator have bigger skulls because they have lower levels of Vitamin D3 compared to those living closer to the equator. Less Vitamin D, less inhibition on neurogenesis however skull bone will not form without sufficient Vitamin D. ————————————————————————— I don’t doubt we ate animals for survival purposes but animal fat is very low in Omega 6 fatty acids unless animals are force fed nuts and seeds high in omega 6 fatty acids. Plus if meat increased cranial size; big cats wouldn't have small 350cc cranials. =============================================================================
