    Do you have any sites or book recommendations for how to use adaptogens? I got eleuthero root. I'm waiting to get the hang of some other supplements (mostly figuring out when I want to take magnesium & making sure it works well) before I try it. No idea what kind of dose to use or when to take it.

    No, im just going by the recommended dosage on the bottle and usually doubling it. I did run across a book that sounded really good with detailed writeups of 23 or so adaptogens. Ill see if i can find it again later, i wouldnt mind reading it.

    Wow, Zach, I think if I ate what you did, I'd be so hungry. Can't imagine eating only fruit and milk.

    I took rhodiola for about 1.5-2 weeks, and it was freaking amazing. I totally didn't expect it to do anything, but it actually worked. Helped me fall asleep quickly at night and got rid of the afternoon crash. I switched to ashwagandha three days ago, and it doesn't work as well for me. Maybe I'm not taking enough? I've been taking three dropperfuls, but I think I'll up it to four. I want to go back to the rhodiola but don't want to develop a tolerance to it.

    So far as i have read RR doesnt build up a tolerance like other adaptogens do. Also RR and ashwa are good stacked together so try that!

    As for being hungry, add 80g of gelatin to your milk!

    I second that. I've been having two sachets of knox gelatine (don't know how much is in each one?) in my morning coffees, and definitely noticing appetite suppression, and a distinct reduction of interest in meat...

    Yeah, I'm inconsistent with my gelatin intake. I don't consume any when I forget to make jello the day before (I forget often). I just like jello so much that I think it's a waste to consume it without first turning it into jello. This probably makes no sense, but i guess I think of it more as a food than a supplement.

    8g each.

    Im trying to get upwards of 100g a day as an experiment. Its kind of hard to do though and expensive! I just got two green cans and buy the knox by the case so i should be able to do it for a couple weeks anyway.

    WOAH - 100g a day?? That's impressive. THe most I had was 24g

    Have you tried making coffee jello? I made it by accident the other day - forgot about my coffee and went I went back it had jello-fied. It tasted great actually! Coffee, milk, maple syrup
