For what it's worth, since I began actively implementing Peat's ideas and eating significantly more fruit and dairy, adding up to 250-300g daily, my milk let-down has been stronger and I've been producing a lot more milk for my little one.
Any tricks for getting gelatin to dissolve? I find if I don't boil the heck out of it in something then I just end up with a giant glob.
Btw Zach, I just saw your most recent pic, you're looking great! This sure seems to be working nicely for you. I'm glad you're in such a comfortable place.
PM and Moluv, Re: getting gelatin to dissolve, it requires pretty hot water (or coffee) but be sure that you are mixing the hot liquid into the gelatin, not the gelatin into the hot liquid. As in, place gelatin into empty cup, pour hot water over it and stir. Does that help?
Is it weird in here, or is it just me?
I'm pretty skeptical of some of the stuff he say's but I'll experiment with a few of his theories and see how it goes.
Cutting out nuts and seeds or any other O-6 sources besides a bowl of oatmeal and some macadamias. Which only has about a gram or 2 anyway.
Replacing almond milk with coconut milk.
Adding 10-20g of gelatin. Is that enough?
Drinking orange juice a bit more regularly.
I won't be eating dairy because I don't really like it besides yogurt and I do better without it.
Won't be eating shellfish or any seafood because I can't stand the smell or taste.
Won't be using refined sugar because I have honey, maple, molasses on hand.
I'll give it a month or so.
"I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.
In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."
