ridiculous amounts of enzyme/hydrochloride pills-no effect
If your avartar pic is you, you are obviously in pretty good health. *leer* Why do you feel you need to take these pills in the first place? Why not spend the money on some good primal food and leave your poor digestive system alone? Were you having a digestive "issue" or just taking them on general principals? Either way, my $.02, your digestive system knows what it is doing. Eat primally and let it do its job. Don't fix what ain't broke.
In my experience working with alot of clients, more people have this problem than not. Your digestion is so critically important to the synthesis of neurotransmitters, proper methylation, hormone production, and mineral and vitamin absorption that unless you know for a fact you have perfect digestion, HCL is a great way to go to improve these processes. Try drinking some beet juice with a meal and if your urine is off color, you got a problem. Just because we are primal/paleo now doesn't mean much for stomach acid production... because we were all something else in childhood and/or early adulthood leading up to this. Gut health is quite complex and unless you digest your primal food, there is much room for improvement.
Oooh not good, sorry to hear that. Cortisol is definitely off kilter and probably leptin too. You don't need to become a Dr K devotee to see the wisdom of eating breakfast though, a big protein rich one. It really does re-set your body to be in tune with the circadian cycles. Give it a try for a week. You might be surprised.
Dr Jack Kruse. Eating a protein rich breakfast is one of the central features of his Leptin Reset protocol. Kruse gets into what are, IMO, silly little details like a certain number of grams at a certain time etc. but still I think the general idea of starting off the day protein/fat rich and saving any carb ingestion for later in the day does help to curb snacking urges.
eggs have been out of my diet for a very long time..i only reintroduced them last week so i dont think theyre an issue..i hope. if god doesnt let me at least have eggs i give up on gaining weight lol
I have similar issue I feel like I do not digest things well. 'Get bloated, infrequent bathroom visits.
I do not get stomach aches, just feel not as energetic, ad I have taken over 10 hcl pills with no warmin at all in the stomach.
I even started doing green smoothies, thinking to eat stuff thats easily digestible, which helps with more frequently bowel movements. So thats good, but would like to get my energy back, and I am just thinking that my digestion is not the best.
Any help would be appreciated. Since you were taking 8 pills without any effect, was wondering what the end result was.
