Journal on depression/anxiety
Currently trying to figure out WTF to eat (for IBS-C).
Fixyourgut.com is fully upgraded with a “new” sexy coat of paint, new site features, updated blog, and a fully functional store. My book Fix Your Gut will be officially released on February 22, 2014. If you preorder the book before the release date, you will lock in the price of $19.99. The book price will be raised to $35 at release.
This book clocks in at 300 pages and took a year off my life.
I have been cooking one bag of beans every couple weeks. I freeze the leftovers in ziplock sandwich bags--they are the perfect size for about a cup of beans. I put a bag in the fridge the night before I want them and they are thawed out the next day. Too easy.
If you eat corn, there are some good tortillas out there with ingredients: limed corn, salt, palm oil. I fry up 3 slices of bacon, then fry a couple tortillas in the bacon grease. Put the beans in the pan with the rest of the bacon grease and heat them and mush them up. Spread the beans on the tortilla and put a bacon strip on top with some cheese....
Quick update...Been doing the recommended 1TBS potato starch (mixed in yogurt) since Monday and have seen absolutely zero difference. Maybe just need to give it more time? Should I increase starch dosage?
In this study, they used 33g/day of RS. 1TBS of potato starch contains about 8g. 4TBS is 32g, but most people really get to farting on 4TBS if taken too quick, hardly anybody does at 2TBS. Your mileage may vary.Out of the six subjects that showed an increase in Bifidobacterium adolescentis with RS4, five did also manifest an increase with RS2 [potato starch is RS2]. However, RS2 induced a slower gradual increase with higher proportions in week three of consumption when compared to week one.
Thanks Otzi...Not being a patient guy in the least, today I just decided screw it and went right to 3TBS potato starch (mixed in yogurt). I thought for sure there was going to be an explosion, literally, but here I am 3 hours later and, well, nothing, nada, zilch. Everything is very (strangely) quiet down there. Not sure what to think. Maybe the calm before the storm?
