Regulate Blood Sugar

refractometer_water
Apologies for the use of the word “blood” in the title, as it is one of my pet peeves that in RBTI the refractometer is thought of as a tool that monitors blood sugar, which it doesn’t.  But it does show an incredible connection to available sugar – or what you might call sugar levels in the brain and muscle and available to the cells.  Because of that, the...

Mango Sherbet

sherbet
I’ve been kind of sick of eating commercial ice cream and packaged cookies with my lunch lately.  Eating tons of that crap just doesn’t feel right.  Intuitively I think to myself that, sure I might be able to get away with it – especially taking buttloads of minerals and putting blackstrap molasses in all my food, but ideal? One of the main objectives of RBTI is to maximize the...

Ulcerative Colitis Diet

ulcerative-colitis
This is a funny video with Challen Waychoff.  One of the attendees mentions something about the RBTI beliefs surrounding how cancer develops, and he stiffens up so as not to reveal anything too libelous on camera. But he goes on to tell an anecdote of a man basically on his deathbed due to a severe case of ulcerative colitis – an inflammatory and “incurable” bowel disease. ...

Inherited Health Problems

lookalikes
From the beginning I have been interested in the role that our inheritance plays in our health tendencies.  It is obvious that inheritance plays a massive role – and this has been repeatedly validated by scientific study. It is also obvious that eating the same foods and being exposed to the same general environment, beliefs, and lifestyle create consistent health tendencies as well.  This...

RBTI and Junk Food

Awesomeness Test Galleria
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...

RBTI vs. DHEA

dhea
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...

RBTI, Sleep, and Vegetarianism

hospitalculo
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...

High-Brix Gardening and Farming

biggest-tomato
On my crazy road trip, I took the time to swing by the Platte family farm in Rochester, New York.  The Platte family has had a history of many debilitating health problems, but used RBTI, as well as clearing their homes of black mold, to get dramatic improvements – especially since they made the recent switch to working with Challen Waychoff. Their RBTI experiences have been so inspiring...

Cancer and pH, Sugar, and Vitamin C

gump
Okey dokey, so maybe I haven’t quite had the opportunity to post videos like I had planned.  The trip has been a mega whirlwind, and totally fun.  The best part was giving Rob A. the schooling of a lifetime in ping pong.  Yeah, I totally brutalized the poor kid.  I went totally Forest Gump on him.  Only the exact opposite.  Yes, sadly, I learned a very hard lesson.  Never take on someone...

RBTI – Eating a Big Lunch

big-lunch
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...

RBTI Introduction Video – Challen Waychoff

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...

Pee Freelea and Couchrider

Please bear with my sick sense of humor, but Pip and I did a short spoof of the 80-10-10 raw vegans Durianrider and Freelea of 30bananasaday.com. What’s wild is that the information in this video is pretty accurate.  That is Pip’s actual age, she has lost a lot of weight since starting to work with Challen 6 months ago, she does no structured exercise and hasn’t for a decade. ...

Taubes Schools Guyenet!

People practically beg me to write up some thoughts specifically about Gary Taubes. I have done so in the past, but not necessarily in thorough detail. When I did write about Taubes, I often championed him for pointing out that obesity is not a simple matter of calorie consumption, calories burned via exercise, willpower, discipline, and so forth. Gary Taubes, as well as several others, have...

How to Run an RBTI Test

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...

Hank Garner Podcast

Hank Garner, a man who quickly lost 100 pounds on a carbohydrate-restrcted diet, recently interviewed me on his site.  It debuted yesterday.  You can listen to it on My Low Carb Journey The interview focuses in many ways on weight loss of course, but Hank mentions some interesting things about drinking water that is in line with recent conversations. ...

Hypoglycemia, Blackouts, Seizures

Here is another interview with the woman visiting West Virginia to work with Challen Waychoff in person.  This is basically an exit interview about her experiences in Wheeling before she heads back home later this afternoon.  Turns out one of the biggest roadblocks that she was running into at home was eating “too much health food.”  She kept trying to do things like make pancakes...

Water: Is it Good or Bad?

I think it’s the nature of the human psyche to be somewhat lazy. By lazy I mean wanting to cling onto simple black and white concepts, declare “case closed,” and systematically file everything into good and bad categories. In the world of nutrition this laziness abounds. It seems everyone wants to create “good guys” and “bad guys” out of different foods, different substances, different...

RBTI Testimonial

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...

Armi Legge

This work with Challen is heating up and getting more and more interesting every day.  I’m away from my beloved Wheeling at the moment, but used one of the simple rules of RBTI today to prevent someone going into a seizure.  In fact, the person was so disoriented that she thought she had had a seizure and rushed to the bathroom mirror to look for bite marks on her tongue.  But there were...

Hypoglycemia – It’s Not All in Your Head, It’s All in Your Urine

While I of course am still very unsure of what to make of my RBTI adventure overall (it’s only been a week, and it is quite a shocking mind funk), I feel comfortable saying that there is at least something of value going on here. How much value? I don’t know. It remains to be seen. I have no doubt that some seriously undesirable body chemistries can be greatly improved, and from the improvement...
