    Phytic acid should really only be a concern for the plant-based crowd whose major protein sources are also their major sources of minerals. As long as you eat meat at all, you're not likely to be...

    So you have physical bloating but no digestive upset/stool problems?

    Laz was talking about metabolic syndrome, and you're only talking about HOMA-IR. Saying "magnesium deficiency causes insulin resistance" implies magnesium supplementation is the cure, which is what...

    I use the term insulin resistance interchangeably with metabolic syndrome. If we're just talking about HOMA-IR, I can provide a study that shows a low sodium diet causes insulin resistance.

    This made me laugh: "Saturated fats should be the major source of dietary calories."
