    Pretty sure this is similar info as what Derp and Zach would have to say

    Np man. Hope all goes well for you.

    I might as well. It's water soluble so I shouldn't have to worry about toxicity, right? Any forms in particular you would recommend?
    Yeah. Just niacinamide(non-flush niacin) is fine. It's really cheap too.

    Do you only use cow dairy, or do you mix it up with different kinds?

    Great to hear how well you're doing! Keep it up ^___^
    No, i lift whenever i can get a session in so i dont bother with pre/post workout nutrition. My training is completely random. Some nights i will sit in the gym for a few hours throwing weight around or practicing something. Other days it will be 20 minutes or less of bodyweight.

    Just cows, dont really have an option for that. Once in a great while i will buy goats cheese at the farmers market. I have never had a problem with pasteurized milk.

    The better your metabolism is and leaner you are, the better and quicker your digestion is. Everything has to do with digestion, transit time and assimilation. If those are messed up, you will experience, bloating, inflammation, constipation, fatigue, etc. I can eat just about anything and a lot, but after a few weeks, it catches up. Right now im focusing on perfecting the function of my body, physically and aesthetically. Hard to do that with any old food unless you started from childhood.

I try to avoid that. When I used to eat oatmeal and oat bran, I noticed that they sometimes gave me heartburn. Too much sticky rice will give me heartburn too, but regular rice doesn't seem to have that effect. If I eat too much ice cream, I sometimes feel sick (slightly nauseated). But that's the extent of my knowledge.

    Hey Zach, how do you measure inflammation?
    After like 8+ years of nutritional obsession, im pretty aware of how certain foods effect me.

    My main marker for inflammation is how i feel when i sleep. At my worst, sleep can be painful, the spine feels on fire, no position is comfortable, intestines feel cramped. At the best, deep, relaxing sleep, jump out of bed pain free. Also like Derp said, skin inflammation is a biggy as well as joints. Most of the time its very subtle but i know when my body is functioning optimally. Another thing is flexibility, highly inflammed, you will be very inflexible. Reduce inflammation and you will instantly gain flexibility.

    Just curious because I'm pretty sure I have a slightly lowered metabolism, and I'd like to fix it and get to a point to where I could lose a little more body fat. I'm probably around 20%ish.

    Btw, I'm just barely recovering from a serious bout of orthorexia and binging, and reading your journal, derps, and especially yoga bares' has really helped me find a few tips, so thanks!
    Its a perfect storm of metabolism, no inflammation, digestion and exercise. The diet is the key component in all this, eating a very pro metabolism, anti inflammatory and highly digestible diet. Food becomes more of a optimal fuel instead of a chore for your body. I really believe obesity is an inflammatory disease. I also exercise quite a bit which helps immensely.

    GREAT NEWS!!! I've contacted a local wholesaler of fresh fruit and veg and I can get 15KG (around 56 Oranges) for 11. That's approx. 80% cheaper than the supermarket. These are their cheapest oranges so when I take a look I will know if they are juicy or not but still, very cheap!

    I've also been simplifying my meals, so instead of having 4-6 types of fruit I'm having 2-3 and I feel less bloated, even with Bananas which is huge for me. Peaches are incredible so I'll look at bulk buying those too since they are expensive at the supermarket.

    Just a quick thanks to Zach and Derp for saving us all the trouble of doing any actual research on our own.
    The above should be viewed as complete and utter nonsense.

    I had this on VLC, before lots of hair shedding, so I'm all too familiar with it. I had system wide inflammation from a backlash of years of shitty food though, being liberated all at once.

    Okay, so I've never noticed itchiness on my scalp, but the skin on my arms, legs, and feet sometimes itch, especially at night when I'm in bed. It hasn't happened for a while but started again recently (just within the last couple days, actually). Sometimes I'd scratch in my sleep and wake up with all kinds of unsightly scratches on my arms and legs. Do you think that's a sign of inflammation? Could it be caused by consuming inflammatory foods?

    Do you have a good source of info for what foods are inflammatory?

    Interesting. No wonder I always feel cold on down days. (I'm doing JUDDD.)

    Yeah, and thanks for being a well spring of knowledge. So much easier to just ask you guys than it is to do research on my own!!

    We could squeeze in another person to our fitness journal: COYZ ... COZY? lol.
    LOL at COZY! I will try to update more often.

    Thats awesome about the oranges! Fresh orange juice is the best. I hope you are growing mint and cilantro in the garden, my favorite juicing herbs. Dandelion greens are good as well.

    Bo prob, man. Gotta do something with all my wasted years. For some reason my friends family are sick of hearing about it, haha.

    Does your skin get red or dry? Those are definate signs of inflammation and a less then optimal thyroid.

    No, it doesn't really get red or dry. It's definitely not red. Sometimes my skin will be a bit dry, especially if I take a hot shower, but it's not super dry. My skin used to be more dry when I used body lotion all the time. I think it got used to the lotion and lost the ability to moisturize itself. I've cut back on the lotion (still use it sometimes), and it's a lot less dry now.

    I realized something.

    I had been off my vitamin B complex for some time. My digestion suffered, gastritis was back, although not terrible.

    I finally got more of my b complex and have been taking it again this week, and I feel MUCH, MUCH better.

    I say goddamn! Vitamin B, don't ever leave me again!

    Do not allow yourself to become wrapped up in a food 'lifestyle'. That is ego, and you are not that.
