  1. I had actually thought about this a while back as well. I've been trialling sugar/carbs in different forms in my diet and it seems like that's my issue; fructose malabsorption or some sort of a sensitivity to it. I've also read some articles that point to fructose as the culprit in a lot of health issues rather than glucose or starch; it seems as though a lot of us are poorly adapted to diets with more than a little bit of fructose. I've only skimmed quickly through some articles but here was a
  2. Reactions to foods vary individually, you may or may not react to it; the only way to find out is to try it for yourself. I'd recommend not binging on pizza though (hard as that may be after abstaining for 1 month), so that you know for sure whether or not it was the pizza and not just simply overeating.
  3. :P I speak french too, no worries. I'm betting your blender is just not capable of effectively blending up the ingredients. Greens are tough to break down and, in my experience, only a high speed blender like a Vitamix or Blendtec does a great job of it.
  4. How's your diet? Higher carb meals can help promote relaxation and good mood (not saying to go binge on pasta). When I was high fat and/or high protein, my sleep took a massive hit. Now that I've added a good amount of carbs back in my diet, I'm much more relaxed, happy, my sleep is much more restful and occurs a LOT more readily. I also remember reading in a psych class that eating a higher protein meal before a test is recommended as it helps keep you alert and stimulated. The chapter also r
  5. One thought I always had was that it typically leads to binge eating which, as we've seen in several posts, is definitely a factor in acne.
  6. Same exact reaction here; it's basically entirely on my jawline for me though. It's odd too because they're just flat red marks and disappear with time, provided i stop taking whatever it is that's harsh on my stomach. I get the same reaction from vitamin C in the form of Ascorbic Acid but not Calcium Ascorbate (see Ester C or BioCGel (in Canada) for these forms); the ascorbic acid in this form is buffered with calcium and is much less harsh/acidic on the stomach. I don't get the reaction wh
  7. Just IMO, but twice a month likely is not enough to raise and maintain iron levels. I try to eat red meat (quality meat if available) once every few days or at least once a week. Also 4oz is a fairly small serving size by most layman's standards (although food guides do use that size as a serving); if you need to go with 4oz for one reason or another, I'd try to eat red meat a minimum of once a week, if not more. Keep in mind too that red meat doesn't just mean beef. There is venison, buffalo/
  8. Read up on AOR's Advanced B-Complex . If I remember correctly, they explain their dosage levels and the reasons for them.
  9. Reminds me of a water filter company's slogan I read a while back; "Buy a filter, or be a filter".
  10. If I remember correctly; this is also an explanation for certain cases of male baldness (my prof. had covered it in one of my classes, can't remember if it was just theorized or actually proven though).
  11. Eggs and cruciferous vegetables come to mind (ie broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, etc.).
  12. I use basically the same recipe too . I got the idea from here. There's also a really interesting video on the page as well, be sure to watch it. It's definitely the best "toothpaste" I've ever used though; my teeth never really got plaque or anything on them really but now they're constantly smooth. I highly recommend trying it.
  13. The body has an innate ability to heal itself; provided you reduce your stresses, eliminate any foods which may be causing your stress (refined carbs for instance or food allergies/intolerances) and maintain a good healthy diet/lifestyle (and possibly a supplement regimen if necessary), it shouldn't take too long. I'm hesitant to give you an exact time-frame though because it is a complex problem and everyone is different. I think the easiest and most effective thing you can do though, is to c
  14. Exactly what happens to me when I overdo fruits. They never form to a head or anything and often are just dark red marks which on occasion are deep cysts that eventually disappear when I taper down or cut out fruit. I also get them from apples and other acidic fruits, esp. when eaten alone (no matter my fruit intake; haven't tested this in a while though).
