Chicharrons? The bagged pork rinds are just OK, as far as I'm concerned, but I remember having home-made ones on occasion way back when, and I loved them.

Anyway, it's an essential ingredient in the biochemical process that provides energy to our cells. I don't think there's any reason why people in general would need to take it, although athletes apparently do before exercise.
I've been pretty wiped the last couple of days, partly due to an energy hangover and mostly due to poor sleep. We had a few really hot, muggy days that were hard on me. But basically, I have to get out of the bad habit of pushing myself a little too hard. I do have to admit, after reading Dr. Myhill's material, now that I know what is actually going on in my body when I push myself, it's going to be much easier to persuade myself to back off. Knowledge is power. Finding out what carbs and sugars were doing to me (I'm afraid I just thought of them as excess calories before) had a similar effect: now I look at them and see trouble hiding behind the deliciousness. No thanks!
For those interested in my CFS saga, I've added these supplements to the list: D-ribose, niacinamide, L-carnitine, B12 (sublingual methylcobalamin), CoQ10, and magnesium citrate. Whew! I'm getting a ridiculous number of supplement bottles in the cupboard. Looking forward to the day when I can back off a few of them. Anyway, these latest additions are to "feed" the mitochondria, basically putting the necessary chemicals back in my cellular batteries.

More and more, our life has been governed by specialists, who know too little of what lies outside their province to be able to know enough about what takes place within it.
