This week, I was waiting in the waiting room of a yoga studio where i take a dance class (not the studio where i do yoga). One of the teachers/masseuses had just come out of a massage session and was talking to his client. I glanced at him, and my jaw dropped. He had the biggest, roundest beer/wheat belly I had ever seen on a man. It was so striking on him because the rest of him was fairly thin. Oh except his chest, which had some b-cup man-boobs straining against his shirt. He really, honest to gods looked pregnant.
It was....just so haunting....
Thanks, Jeffrey. And you know what else that befounds me? It took 4 endoscopies for them to figure out I needed to go get one of those nuclear tests to show how fast (slow) my stomach emptied! Why? Because even after fasting the prescribed amount of time that was required before the test, even 18 hours a couple of times, I still had copius amounts of food left in my stomach and they couldn't "see" anything. I guess they finally believed me when I told them I had fasted? Four times?

How many times a week can you eat a boiled egg? ...
Ans. Well, I would want to know more about your whole diet before I answered that question. In general, you could eat an egg a day and be healthy. The negative connection eggs have with health is the meal pattern that usually goes along with eating eggs. The Japanese eat about one egg per day and have very low levels of heart disease. But they also eat plenty of fish, vegetables, very little meat and saturated fat. So, if you're eating a healthy diet, an egg a day - or maybe even more - is fine!Q. What is considered too low for daily carbs espcially for prediabetes?

Don't get me started on pecans..I was overhearing my mom's viewing of Dr. Oz's ep on brain health; and how to improve it. I was hoping he'd mention coconut oil,but he didn't. He did mention pecans...I'll give oz props for mentioning offals, but only chicken ones... (he actually had a guest pointing out these remedies to his audience). I know Mark has a spectrum regarding nuts (as he has a spectrum for almost everything), but there are better options for brain health..

Just please, store your nuts in the fridge or freezer, buy them raw and DON'T HEAT NUT MEALS. Make "breads" out of tapioca, potato starch and white rice flour, not nut meals. Gross.
