    @DannyJ Regarding your concern about teeth&sugars. Sugars (though I think white sugar doesn’t have much value compared to natural sugars) don’t necessarily cause bad teeth.
    I don’t want to make anyone food OCD,but My father was a baker and had really bad teeth turned out it wasn’t bc of sugar…it aws all the wheat. His dentist told him,it was quite common amongst bakers to have bad teeth bc of all the wheat&tasting they have to do.
    I don’t know why,but my own assumptions is bc wheat’s high in phosphorus and low in calcium…

    Hey CP,

    Is there a way to contact you?(I looked if there was a PM function,but there isn’t)
    I don’t have a lot of time now to write up everything here and in a clear structured manner,but in trying to solve my issues I also came on the path of Fructose malabsorption,liver function,guthealth,mineral/vitamin deficiencies etc.,PCOS-like symptoms.
    I’d love to hear if you migth have some experiences/suggestions on my issues.

    @cookin Personally, I think it’ll be a rip-off of yhe Metabolic Blueprint and basically will come down to recipes with sugars/fruits,sat.fats,proteine/dairy,salt and starch in form of roots&tubers and rice. so,basically a Peatish framework…..I think it’s much cheaper to google recipes with these ingredients but thats just my opinion.
    The recipes in metabolic blueprint,i already came across on several blogs in somewhat the same form.

    @David Yes,that’s true about all the conflicting dietary dogma. I do (want to) focus on training only but the problem’s that I still have no clue what foods are beneficial and detrimental to me. I can have a certain something and the day after it boosted my workout and at other times it totally drains me. I seem to suspect a pattern in it and reading an article about Hashimoto’s and symptoms I strongly suspect I’ve been dealing with Hashi’s for a long time even though it never showed up in tests…..but I don’t think tests are all that trustworthy.
    Protein is still a vague territory for me as in how much and I think even the proteinsource migth make a difference. I know about ways to calculate it,however this would require to step on the scale to see what I weigh which is something I don’t really feel like.2

    I’ve given up on the dreamwish that I’d ever get an athletic-looking body with all the on&off bloating,weird fluid balance and varying muscle defenition,so that’s why I’d decided to focus on workout-successes because by now I have the impression I’ll never be able to fix&keep things like good gutbalance/digestion,no bloating etc.while not doing some kind of regiment,cutting out food(groups) etc.

    @David The Urbanathlon is June 15th. Yes,I indeed was thinking about starting with intervals between running&walking and then trying to increase running time and decrease walking intervals.
    I think Couch 2 5k recommends running 3 times a week….than on 3 non-running days I could do weigthlifting,maybe something like I Wendler 5/3/1 with some additional exercises? and then one day doing nothing….

    What I dont get though is that in the running magazine I’ve bought they talk about nutrition,high carb with adequate protein from fish,eggs,chicken,lowfat dairy but for fatsources they recommend nutbutters,eggs,olive oil…..no mentioning of coconut oil or butter.
    Then from a Peatarian p.o.v. PUFAS should inhibit proper glucose/sugar metabolism?
    (On a sidenote a while ago at Peatarian I read a topic about SFA causing endotoxemia. Just when you think you start to get a grasp of things,you get ‘surprises’ like this!)

    @David I agree with the avoidance even when it indeed seems unfair. Back in my Lyme-days other fellow Lymies were constantly urging me that I should rest,take naps etc.but I never felt like it and I think if I would’ve given in to it I would’ve probably completely fallen apart and dwell in the fatigue.
    But yeah,it’s hard for me to find a balance in resting&when to push through fatigue…..well actually finding&keeping balance in general in life.

    On a sidenote,I know you mentioned you run. I’ve signed myself up for The Urbanathlon in June organized by Men’s Health.(Yes,I like reading that magazine as a woman;))
    Even though I’m entering in the short circuit of 5-6km…..I’ve never ran/jogged in my life and now need to start with training to be able to run at least that amount of kilometers. (And then there’s the obstacles)
    The reason I want to participate is for one that I need some kind of goal to focus on in my life and second because I always felt fatigued,sluggish and not like running or any exercise in the past…and I’m also a bit clumsy at times. So,I want to prove to myself that I can do this….and hopefully it’ll be the start of many mudruns/obstacle courses to come,in other words a new hobby.
    Do you have any advice for a noob about how to start,nutrition,practical tips etc.

    I’m having the same problem too,by the end of the day I look like I’m 9monts pregnant.
    I’ve tried several things high fiber/low fiber,gluten seems to cause bloating one time and than the other time not and it’s not lack of calories etc.
    On top I keep battling with varying degrees of a (watery?)bellypouch and side lovehandles and overall fluidbalance….some days I have these dents in my leg where my socks used to be. (I hoped that all these stories about high metabolism and decreasing foodintolerances would apply for me,but it seems that gluten suppresses metabolism*sigh* and causing some other negative things. And before people start about not stressing about food,I dont but it still seems to cause a stressreaction in the body unfortunately. Sometimes I think I migthve Hashimoto’s even though tests never showed anything….but I personally think our healthcare system&tests are worthless shit anyway.).

    By now,I’m almost starting to accept that I’ll never get the bodycomposition I’d like to have and eat whatever no matter exercise/workout.

    @Christinam I agree that raising metabolism is very complicated and not just about eat more or eat ‘x’food.
    When I ‘losened up’ on food and amongst some others started to eat wheat again,I couldn’t get enough of it and I thougth it was actually doing me good because I got warm Hands&feet from it,but I also kept/keep experiencing certain symptoms.

    Sadly I now have concluded that the heat/warmth I felt,was actually warmed caused by inflammation from the wheat.Apparently,the wheat keeps damaging my gut and causing mineral deficiencies. So,even those ‘metabolic markers’ don’t always have to be trustworthy. Just like the pee-color thing,I find that sometimes when my pee is very clear I can feel nicely warm,energetic&positive.

    Also the ‘can’t get enough attitude’ of the wheat(&certain other things) I experience,are explained in this article which really rings true to me.
    And that’s probably also a reason why some people are obese and can’t loose the weigth.

    @Cameronday Yeah,I basically noticed the same when being without wheat I feel more positive&happy and when eating I feel even more happy and want to eat even more of it but shortly after my mood immediately downgrades. (and I think it may cause some bloating too.)

    A couple of days ago I read this article that stated that the opoid effect of wheat in the brain mask it’s inflammation in the gut….or something along that line. I’m thinking that migth be the case for me too.

    I love it (though I dont bake,so dont know how it turns out), I eat it straigth from the jar.
    It’s not as strong caramelly tasting like Palm Sugar,which is also good.
    Unfortunately it’s expensive but it contains lots of nutrients&amino acids.

    I’d be cautious of Bugles depending on where you live.
    Today I looked at the supermarket and saw it got a new package and on the bag was a big sticker ‘proudly anouncing’ that its 100% Sunflower oil.

    Actually Macadamia nuts and Hazelnuts are higher in Mono-Unsaturated-Fat and less PUFA

    I think the ‘junkfood being good’ is more along the line of home-made with healthy fats,additive and gumfree?

    The highest Sat.Fat sources are like Jman99 mentioned everything Coconut (Oil,Milk,Cream).
    Unrefined Palmfett has also quite some sat.fat.

    Butter,but personally I’d opt for Goat&Sheep dairy….they have a more favorable fatty acids composition imho….and usually better digestible.

    Cacaobutter is also high in sat.fats,so you can either make your own chocolate with cacaobutter and/or Coconut Oil…..or happily eat storebougth chocolate,though I’d be causious that it doesnt have soy-lechitine in it which a lot of pre-made bars have.
