RBTI Update

Posted

Apologies for my lengthy silence on RBTI.  If anything, I took a lot of time to let it all soak in, and to see what really stuck.  As you may know, the personal benefits I got from RBTI included fat loss eating to appetite – even eating lots of palatable processed foods, disappearance of chest pain that I had suffered from for years, and tremendous improvement with some pain/weakness I had in my feet that had gotten worse over the year prior.  Plus my nostrils seemed to become less inflamed as well, allowing me to breathe deeper.  I thought my pet allergies were gone forever too, but it turned out that I was only not allergic to the pets I was around during my RBTI education. I of course saw… Read more »

RBTI Intro Package

Posted

It’s here and it’s queer! Get used to it!I finally released the RBTI Intro Package this morning. I did the best job I could do of thoroughly covering the basics of the program that Challen Waychoff, N.D., uses to help his clients get some pretty remarkable results. The package includes the eBook – Introduction to RBTI, as well as the 180DegreeHealth RBTI Cookbook. In addition to those 2 eBooks, there are 8 videos and 9 audio segments on various RBTI topics – including links on how to get a test kit for as little as $217 + shipping. Note – that’s the price of the TEST KIT, not the package! Anyway, I’ll spare you the whole sales pitch. If you are interested in doing RBTI, you won’t find a set… Read more »

RBTI Lemonade

Posted

Still got a half dozen more video clips of Challen on file.  Here’s one with him discussing a few topics briefly, such as why people are “night people,” the A through E ranges in RBTI, and the purpose of the lemonade – as well as the dangers with drinking the lemonade if your chemistry is not right. Also wanted to make some announcements.  Just putting the finishing touches on a dual eBook, video, and audio package introducing the basics of the RBTI program.  It is an organized presentation of the program Challen is using to get such excellent results with the clients who manage to stick with his program long enough to reap the rewards.  Hoping to get this out on Monday, so stay tuned. Pip and I will also… Read more »

RBTI and Junk Food

Posted

Before getting started, I must publicly declare a winner for the two combined road trips. Winner of what? Awesomeness of course. While one guy opened the door adorned in a faded Ghostbusters t-shirt – and believe me, I was impressed and thought this was unlikely to be topped – and another fed me cheesecake, housed me and Pip for an evening, and let me have a couple games of ping pong, there is no question whatsoever that the Croatian giant that I met in Chicago won handily over all the others if awesomeness is the object of the game. I walked in the door and he had an 80’s movie cued up on the television. Before saying anything he pushed PLAY. It was an obscure 80’s film that I didn’t… Read more »

RBTI vs. DHEA

Posted

Tomorrow I leaveth the WHIZard and the wonderful paradise city of Wheeling. At least for a few months. I have spent a total of four weeks here and about six weeks on Waychoff’s basic program at this point – with decent but not perfect adherence due to some chaotic road trips. My body chemistry has moved much closer to Reams’s theoretical ideal. And I can honestly say I’ve noticed improvement in all the areas I was having troubles with upon arrival – from improvements in foot pain, chest pain, and back pain to a huge decrease in pet allergies and asthma. My teeth feel noticeably stronger – kind of like what I felt on my extended milk fast over a year ago (which made the other problems listed exponentially worse… Read more »

RBTI, Sleep, and Vegetarianism

Posted

In the months leading up to my pilgrimage to Wheeling, West Virginia (where I saw a grown man wearing a hospital gown as a shirt on Saturday - it was tucked into his pants but his fat, hairy, bare back was showing… the thing was faded and frayed as well, as if he had been wearing it as a shirt for years), I was eating a progressively vegetarian diet.  I noticed the more meat I displaced out of my diet, the better I felt in many categories – such as lower levels of inflammation, less tooth pain, no body odor, gums stopped bleeding, better breathing… But I knew it was a dead end and I also knew things weren’t right.  I broke out with two major rashes on my backside in a period of only… Read more »

RBTI – Eating a Big Lunch

Posted

One of the simplest aspects of the RBTI – and one of the most powerful, is eating a big lunch – the meal of the day when you eat the most fat, the only meal that you eat meat (not including eggs and dairy), and the last time during the day that you eat sweets or desserts. Seems that people are daunted by this whole RBTI thing, but, as Challen says matter of factly – “the more rules that you follow the healthier you will become.”  Well, I’m finding that just following this ONE rule - eating big every day and finishing up the meal no later than 2pm, is helping a lot of people.  It’s very simple.  No meats or sweets after 2pm.  Dinners are very light – typically small salads, steamed vegetables, cottage cheese, soups,… Read more »

RBTI Introduction Video – Challen Waychoff

Posted

Pip and I will be leaving Wheeling on Friday to tour around New York and New Jersey (starting Friday in Rochester).  Pippa will bring a test kit with her and is willing to swing by and test anyone in the area that is interested, as well as go over all the intricate details of Challen’s program for a reasonable fee.  I’ll be there to make fart noises in several creative ways, do impressions, say GARRRR every time she looks at the refractometer, and otherwise annoy her.  I’ll write more about this tomorrow.  If you are an individual or alternative health practitioner of some kind in the area and know that you are definitely interested you can start the process of lining up an appointment by sending her an email at… Read more »

How to Run an RBTI Test

Posted

Well hey, I’m a newbie at this – but a lot of people wanted to kind of know how the testing is done.  The testing is pretty easy.  What’s hard is getting a proper interpretation, especially with the urea numbers – which, on my own, I never would have figured to be a 7/10 as shown in the video.  But for those wondering how the hell to do the test, this is a good place to get familiar. One thing the video failed to show was the proper sound to make when looking through the refractometer.  Looking at your urine through a refractometer makes you a “Pee Pee Pirate” by default.  Thus, you should make a sound like, “Garrr” or “Arrrggghh” when looking through it.  Lord knows I always do.   How to RAISE YOUR… Read more »

RBTI Testimonial

Posted

I’ve made the point before and I’ll make it even more emphatically here – there is only one person that has cracked the code of the RBTI.  His name is Challen Waychoff.  It has recently come to my attention that many people are hearing about RBTI here, googling it, and ending up on the forums of various jagoffs that have no idea what they are doing.  Fail. There is only one person in the world that has developed any degree of mastery using the Reams equation.  Accept no substitutes. For example, the most popular of the “RBTI” practitioners nearly killed the person that speaks in the following interview, by having her drink a bunch of water.  Water is like kryptonite to the hypoglycemic, and this is one of the worst cases… Read more »

RBTI – Challen Waychoff Delivers

Posted

I went to see Challen Waychoff because I was told he could look at a basic set of numbers ascertained from a series of simple urine tests and tell what was wrong with a person, what they ate and even when they ate it, and precisely what course of action to take to fix their body chemistry. This seemed like incredibly powerful knowledge, and hinted at a more sophisticated understanding of nutrition than anyone else in the world possesses. On the first day I watched a few clients come in. The first was an average construction worker kind of guy. He had a big gut and was just a regular Joe. He had a heart attack at which point he decided to pay Challen a visit. Within 48 hours his… Read more »

Why RBTI?

Posted

So why exactly have I journeyed up to the dilapidated town in West Virginia known as Wheeling, where tattooed rednecks walk around with no shirt through city streets, where the Klopeks would be scared of their neighbors – and would have the best kept house in town… …where cars like the one shot with my phone are parked on lawns, where some of the world’s most unnattractive and physically debilitated Americans can be found “wheeling” up and down the streets in wheel chairs like a scene out of Wall-E? Well, because Carey Reams (who looked a lot like Harry Caray, coincidentally – maybe I’ll start calling him Harry Carey Reams) spoke to God and God gave him an equation for the numbers you should score on a bunch of pee pee… Read more »

Books by Matt Stone

Posted

Eat for Heat: The Metabolic Approach to Food and Drink is a steady bestseller in Amazon’s Diet Therapy category. The book discusses revolutionary new insights into the role of body fluid concentration in metabolic rate, and continues to be highly effective for individuals applying its methods. The premise is extremely simple and straightforward… By manipulating the ratio of calories, carbohydrates, and salt to fluid intake one can largely determine the increase in metabolic rate (and body temperature) derived from that meal. Hence the name “Eat for Heat.” It is available in both the Platinum Collection and the Metabolism Bundle sold in the site STORE, and is sold separately as an eBOOK or PAPERBACK at AMAZON. There is also an audiobook version available at AUDIBLE. It is also listed at other retail booksellers such as Lulu, Barnes and Noble, Google… Read more »

Why I Don’t Eat Pork

Posted

By Matt Stone In 2006, my natural contrarian tendencies getting the best of me, I decided that fat, not carbohydrates or protein, was the bestest thing ever.  So I embarked on a diet with roughly 70% of my calories coming from fat.  In all the world’s anti-fat hysteria, they must have missed what is truly the optimal human diet.  Or so I led myself to believe as I watched my abs pop out, my moods stabilize, my cravings for all of those “poisonous” modern foods disappear, and so on.  Pork was a huge centerpiece of my menu, especially in Hawaii where tasty pork bellies abound and you can go to a supermarket and pick up weird piggy stuff like the pig’s head shown left (that’s me holding it). But by… Read more »

How Much Water Should YOU Drink?

Posted

By Matt Stone One of my greatest pet peeves when it comes to nutrition is the frequent use of blanket recommendations – many of them made on some theoretical basis, or made due to statistical probability (none of them particularly relevant to a real person living in the real world).  And I feel like, over the years, we at 180D have been picking through these one by one – especially now as we leave this sort of standard view of nutrition in the dust at an accelerated rate. These blanket recommendations really degrade what nutrition, or dietary manipulation, can be – which is an amazing medical tool. The food pyramid is a real travesty, and gives nutrition a bad name.  Dietary needs radically change – sometimes on an hourly basis.  Nutritional… Read more »

Thyroid and Nosebleeds, Heavy Periods, Bleeding Gums, Bruising, Anemia, and Low Platelet Count/ITP

Posted

Wow!  If that ain’t the most Ray Peat title ever!  Beat that old man! Okay, I don’t expect this post to really appeal to a broad audience.  I mean, that’s the most uncatchy title of all-time.  Well, other than the fact that I listed enough health problems that virtually everyone will have had some problem with one of those at some point.  Maybe that will lure in a few readers. This post is important though, as there are some very interesting connections between all of these conditions and metabolism/thyroid.  Understand some of those connections and you will understand the human body better than most.  Be warned that this post will probably jump around a lot and seem a little schizophrenic, but bear with me.  I didn’t want to separate it… Read more »

2011 Reading List

Posted

Wow, that time is upon us.  The infamous time of year when I post the titles of all the books I read over the past year.  Last year I hyped up this list to be legendary.  But I didn’t come close to reading all the titles I wanted to read, much less get to many of the great books that many of you 180 faithful suggested I stick my nose in.  I was tearing up the books through about March.  Then I couldn’t be bothered with anything that wasn’t written by Ray Peat.  He is still, despite obvious shortcomings in his ability to put all of the pieces of his knowledge together into something effective and practical, the most interesting living health and nutrition writer on the face of this earth that I… Read more »

Increased Alcohol Sensitivity

Posted

I don’t think I’m allowed to post comments on Mark Sisson’s site.  I was banned a couple years ago.  But I was checking out his most recent post and tried to post this comment on the topic of increased sensitivity to alcohol and caffeine on a low-carb Paleo diet, which I don’t think showed up.  My response was… “Alcohol and caffeine cause sugar levels to crash on a cellular level.  They are perhaps the most potent triggers of these crashes, which you can test by monitoring your urine with an agricultural tool called a refractometer.  A reading below 1.5 denotes a crash.  Below 0.5 is considered very severe. The fewer carbs you eat, the more prone you are to these crashes – for one because you are not offsetting the effects… Read more »
