The email I get most often is one inquiring about the “free ebook.”? In October of 2011, the free ebook that I used to give away was revised, expanded into a full-length book, and released as Diet Recovery: Restoring Hormonal Health, Metabolism, Mood, and Your Relationship with Food.? There is also now a Diet Recovery 2.
This book lays out all of the major concepts regarding the health issues that can stem from an impaired metabolism, how the metabolism becomes impaired in the first place, and clear instructions on the most high percentage methodology (without drugs or supplements)?for raising metabolic rate back to normal and?beyond.
I decided to do this post for those searching for information about the free ebook at 180DegreeHealth. You can read more about Diet Recovery HERE?
If you truly have financial constraints that forbid you from paying for the book, you can discuss the possibility of receiving a discount by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
I actually got the diet recovery ebook a little over a month ago, but I’m a bit of a tough case, so it’s going to take some time I think. However this seems like a good place to ask about the ‘180 Starter Kit’ that I originally signed up for when I found this site a couple of months ago. I don’t recall seeing anything in the article in the link about “Maximizing mineral absorption”; what I did get was something that didn’t really seem to match what’s shown that one should be getting with the starter kit.
I can find the link and see what it was if you want. It didn’t do much for me, as I recall.
The Maximizing Mineral Absorption was the best phrase to summarize the RBTI information.
Thanks for the reply. I just took a 2nd look, and now I get it. I’ll take a look at the RBTI intro. package when my budget improves (i.e. when I get a job!).
For me the rrarf is going to need some fine-tuning, since I have several sensitivities (gluten, soy, msg, sulfites) so I’m working to discover which foods work better than others. I’m definitely making progress, and your info. makes the task easier.
Matt~ I would love this book (and don’t mind paying for it) but based on a recent blog post, you mentioned you were planning on updating it so I was waiting – is that still the plan? And, while I’ve got you on the line … I would really LOVE the info you’ve mentioned was forthcoming about your girlfriend’s amazing recovery. Thanks!!
You’d have access to any subsequent updated versions released, so feel free to go for it now.
Don’t have any info for ya on the lady’s recovery. That one will be Matt :-)
Yes, I too want to hear about Matt’s girlfriend’s recovery. I hear so much about people RRARFing and feeling better – gaining weight – but I want to hear some stories about people who have followed this plan, fixed their metabolism and then have seen the weight come off effortlessly. I just don’t seem to hear many of those stories on there or maybe I’m just not looking in the right place. But I do remember Matt mentioning a while back about his girlfriend’s progress and would love to hear her story. Thanks!
Do you think pi3k, and AKT have much to do with insulin resistance? I think these things are out of wack in me, but I haven’t found a way to increase them. It seems like it maybe very easy for me to decrease them however. I just take plenty of alpha lipoic acid or flavanoids.
When I sit down my ass doesnt want to fold in on itself anymore. My acne is scarce to none (still use Acne.org regimen(best pharmaceutical grade benzoyl) and when I do get it, it doesnt feel like someone is shoving knifes in my face (probably also has to do with my abstinence from pork). I don’t EVER come close to passing out at anytime no matter how hard I work ANYMORE. I don’t look at donuts and get a boner. I’m proud of my fat and the fact that I sweat the biggest bullets out of anyone at work (even the much much heavier gentleman). I’m stronger than ever (have an ongoing wrist problem, though, most likely due to previous damage from when body was a wreck trying to perform my job) and still getting stronger. Sleep, umm, that’s hard to say, I was smokin spice (I think cannabis is wonderful and couldnt have it so was using synthetic) for a while unfortunately screwin with my shit. I’ve stopped because I was having weird sensations and never felt it before so went cold tofurkey. Sensations are gone now and can’t exactly be correlated but more or less I believe a certain brand/chemical was doing it. Been a couple weeks and the last couple days I’ve actually went to sleep fairly quick when laying down it’s crazy and I feel like I’m starting to much more in tune with my body somehow from being completely sober. Also, I used to crave alcohol sometimes and I no longer crave that either, but I still can and will enjoy it from time to time when the moment is right. I’ve gotten rid of most of my phobias of food while still understanding that maybe somethings aren’t best for me doesn’t mean I can’t have them if I want. I’m eating things I never thought I’d be able to eat again, and my IBS symptoms almost never occur anymore and if they do it’s usually subtle, but there were a few exceptions and I think it had to do with stress and other factors. I don’t eat weird shit anymore like hamburger patties with coconut oil salt, and turmeric. Or broccoli with nutritional yeast instead of cheese. The yeast actually is pretty good sometimes though. My semen is no longer bloody. Just kidding hahaha. (happened once when I was a teen though wholy shit I got scared. My hair doesn’t seem to be falling out anymore is thicker, I still have a lot of loss and I see fuzzies in there, but who knows if it’ll ever come back. I guess it’s like a battle scar like Rob Cooper from formerfatguy.com says his stretch marks are. I have balding in the family but I think I super accelerated it. Ummm, I’m way more horny now, even though I was already before, which is kind of a problem LOL. I have much more explosive energy, and probably would have even more if I super smashed in the morning an did some RBTI shit, but I’m still bein chiefy, even tons in the evening and other smaller things scattered when I am hungry. Gatorade and juice at work keeps my appetite at bay most of the time. And right now, I’m not over eating really, because I can’t afford it. If I was any hotter at work I’d fuckin DIE. I think my brain works better, more focused when I’m well fed. I guess I could say I don’t have hypoglycemic with large carb loads liek some people would, which is what is suppose to happen when you smash. I can’t believe I went foggy minded for so long without enough carbs. Like turning down one ways the wrong way kind of foggy minded, and putting the milk in the cupboard foggy minded (you catch my drift, freakin tunnel vision havent eatin in 8 hours whilst workin ur ass off foggy minded). I FREAKIN SHIT WAY BETTER, and it’s usually like clockwork, the whole tube of toothpaste deal. I still have teeth issues sometimes but they always seem to clear up. If I had more money and stuff I guess I’d be trying min-col and a bunch of other approaches but the real simple changes has made a world of difference. I have a long way to go and perhaps somethings about myself are irreparable and also genetic. I feel much better, I’m happier even whilst working my ass off for little pay, I also can withstand MUCH more sun now without pain. Sure I can burn without the proper precautions, I am a pale person, but I can tan, and I am tan where my skin is exposed, and I just recently a couple weeks ago took some Walmart coconut oil to work and use that now, I wore a wife beater type shirt for the first time, slathered my blinding white arms, and never got burned, and now its tan baby! Could say a lot more but hopefully this inspires some peoples out there. It’s a never ending journey my friends, just be intuitive, be critical of all information, don’t stress over stupid shit, even preservatives if you despise them, and stay positive as best as you can because it certainly plays a large factor in your hormonal state and well being. Until next time, Bob Dean the eatin and sweatin balls at work machine. Circa Mid December 2011, 200lb. Today, don’t know, but pry around 260-265. I think me being mostly sober now, and getting more natural sleep from exhaustion is going to have a big impact on the journey/experiment of mine, and I think it’s going to be really good. Just wish my wrists were strong so I could do pull ups and stuff =*(
Awesome account Bob Dean- thanks for sharing.
Thank you and you’re welcome good sir =D
Go on iherb or another vitamin site and search PerioWash, periobright etc. That should help clear up your teeth issue.
Thanks for the advice. I don’t use toothpaste either. Could you share with you your thoughts as to why this would help me?
Just use baking soda or baking soda and salt mixed. Cheap and works great. It kills off the microbes in your mouth and alkalizes the acids that form. After you brush swish the bs spit in your mouth for a couple of minutes. I think there is a website called oralmedia.com that talks about baking soda. They sell a book called How to fire your dentist that is written by a dentist. He tells about baking soda and how all the older people, who used to mainly be the ones using it, had good strong teeth.
I have asked this before and maybe someone else replied but I’ll never know until someone helps me out with this question. What do you guys use to keep track of people responding to your specific comments. I just bring up the blog post, search for my post and scroll down, there must be a better way…commentful or whatever, that website never even worked for me to begin with. Please help!
That’s the only way I know. The old site didn’t have the option of replying to specific comments, so it was a little more haphazard. Currently, conversation threads can emerge and make that a little easier. No easier method that I know of, though- sorry, brother.
thanks for responding Rob. I’ll share my methods if I come up with something better.
Since the book is due to be updated at some point in time, can I ask if there’s outdated information in the book (and if so, what), or simply just new information missing?
Did Matt say he was planning to update Diet Recovery? Or just that DR is the updated and expanded version of the old free eBook.
Oh, maybe that’s it. I might have read something in an old comment section, who knows. Is he planning an updated version?
Oh, and diet recovery for a very picky 4 year-old eater–is it possible?
Hey Josefina- maybe Matt can say more, but I’m guessing just having lots of good, nourishing tasty food around would be good. I mean, hopefully a 4 year old hasn’t been on a restricted diet already, so there’s minimal actual diet recovery to do. So just find what he or she likes, and have plenty on hand, made with good quality ingredients.
No, he hasn’t been on any kind of imposed diet, just his own self-imposed restrictions:). I think he was born low thyroid, considering I had a bad case of it before getting pregnant with him and in the early phase, though I’ve always had issues with it.
I have been feeding him what he wants for the past 2-3 years and he simply drops one food after the other.
I don’t know how much value this has for you, but I was a ridiculously picky eater as a kid. At one point, I even read about OCD as manifested through food, and it sounded like me (I was maybe 8 or 10 at the time).
My family, to their credit, never gave me a hard time about any of it. I ate lots of crappy white rice with margarine, oatmeal cookies, gummi bears, very rarely breaded and fried chicken cutlets, almost no red meat, lots of white bread and soda and McDonald’s french fries. Eventually, I found my way to food with nutrients and after various bits of extremism (bodybuilder style eating, vegan, paleo low carb, etc.), I ended up liking that nourishing food.
Just have the good stuff available. And as a former permaculture homesteader, I think having a garden around and involving kids in it from an early age will get them interested in vegetables and fresh food.
So I guess I would say try not to stress over it too much and give him time to find his way there.
I second (actually third lol) what Rob said, Josefina.
“So I guess I would say try not to stress over it too much and give him time to find his way there.”
Ya what Rob said! Like homemade cookies with coconut oil an butter instead of stinkin cotton-cock oil. Excuse my vulgarity =)
Hi Matt – I just finished reading your book after hearing you on the Real Food Summit. I feel like you were speaking just to me because I have a stellar diet and know so much about nutrition but I am like you when you were training and doing lo-carb and I have destroyed my health and I need to get it back ASAP and restore my metabolism. I feel like I am the only person out there with this “problem” of being underweight even though I eat really well…but after reading your book I feel inspired and motivated that someone else “gets it” and I am not alone! I started on the RRARF today and I do have financial contraints but I am wondering how much it costs to work with you one on one? Thank you so much!
Rob here- you can check out Matt’s ‘Get Help’ page here: http://180degreehealth.com/get-help He works with folks one on one on a ‘pay as you can’ basis. So don’t let financial constraints stop you.
Glad you found 180- have fun RRARFing!
Good luck, Beth! I tend towards underweight also (there are some of us out here haha), and Matt’s recommendations have been the only thing to help me in this regard. :)
For me, I think one of the main things was eating whichever carbs I could manage in large quantities. Oh right and when my appetite was non-existent, the only food that would bring it back, was sugar. :P
As crazy and counterproductive as that sounds, it was kind of a lifesaver, because I was at the point where I’d nearly stopped eating. But when I ate something sugary, then BAM I could eat a normal meal as well. Sometimes I could only eat a few mouthfuls of the normal meal before needing something sugary to increase my appetite again. Was really weird.
So be prepared to discover weird things like this, as you listen to your body. :P
Hi Matt – I’m so happy that I found your website! I bought your Diet Recovery ebook this morning and I’m nearly finished with it already – I couldn’t take my eyes away from it! It makes perfect sense to me – I’ve had hypothyroidism for most of my life (not autoimmune – been tested several times). I’ve dieted my way up to nearly three hundred pounds. My serum cholesterol is high and my basal temperature is low (of course). I’ve been on Levothyroxin until recently; I decided to quit taking it as it is obviously no more effective for treating my hypothyroidism than a TicTac. I recently discovered that I have multiple food allergies (duh) – gluten, dairy, soy, eggs. I have been doing a lot of research on my health issues – which brought me to your website. As I read the intro to Diet Recovery, it was like reading about myself. I’m going to be RRARFing! Thanks for doing what you do Matt – those of us who identify ourselves in your work appreciate it more than you could ever possibly know. Maybe we’re not as crazy as we thought all along.
BTW, butyric acid is found in coconut oil. I’ve recently started using organic coconut oil; it’s very inexpensive, odorless, and tasteless. I take a spoonful every day.
Welcome Donna- keep us posted on how things pan out for you. Be curious to know more about the butyric acid in coconut oil. Any resources you can send my way?
Today, my basal temperature was 97.8; the highest it’s been in a month of observing. I found an article on Mercola.com written by Ray Peat that references butyric acid in coconut oil; it provides some interesting information regarding the benefits of this saturated fat. The link is: http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2001/03/24/coconut-oil-part-one.aspx. I’ll post more specific and relevant links as I find them.
For some more indepth background you could read my post here: http://www.paleoforwomen.com/f?..ease-help/
So,today I couldn’t contain myself anymore again :( when I went to Aachen (I live close to the German border) and partook in a breakfast buffet (however I try to keep things usually somewhat Paleoish/try to avoid certain things) bc it makes me ‘feel good&normal” and I like eating on my own yet being amongst people. And the thing is,when I’m at restaurants I don’t think about ratios/portions/macros , anymore bc I think “just this one time and tomorrow I’m gonna go to the gym anyway”.And it also feels like such a relief that I can just “go sit at a table and try to eat intuitively without having to struggle with lots of different pots&pans myself”
Here’s what I had: 1Green Tea,couple of lettuce leafs,couple of slices of cucumber,couple of slices of green Bell Pepper,one Lemon, couple of slices of smoked salmon,2 small pieces of whitefish(I think it was Cod) in some kind of cheesy sauce I guess,one slice of turkeybreast&2slices of cheese which were actually there to put on bread.They also had different pies for dessert?.I took one cheesecake kinda pie,dont know what the stuff is called in the US that’s inbetween it I think soft curd, anyway I only ate that stuff in between and left the dough for what it was (though I dont know if it had some sugar in it,probably yes bc everything usually kinda has but the Germans usually use it way less than the Dutch lately and thats usually HCFS, it didnt taste too overly sweet.) I always carry around a small tube with Himalayan salt in it,which I put on the foods.
That’s when I had my first splurge of diarrea (excuse the gross subject),I know it’s not a good thing however it feels so good to me especially bc I’m mostly constipated.
Then at dinnertime I was craving the Chinese Wok restaurant again so I thought “what the hell just this one time??again”
Here’s what I had over there: 2 coffee jars of Green Tea,probably around 3 to 4lemons, couple of steamed BokChoy leaves with 2florets of broccoli and 3 shrimps&small piece of beef(I actually only ask to steam it instead of Wok bc all the Woksauces contain Soy),probably around 3plates of shredded lettuce(I guess mostly iceberg) and couple of slices of green Bell Pepper (maybe between a half and an entire one) as a “dressing” I had some kind of Chinese sweet sugary sauce though I tried to limit it as much as possible(probably was around one eatspoon),some shredded bits of salmon&tuna,and probably around a quarter of mackarel.
And then came dessert??.most dairy ice cream contains HCFS over here,however this soft icecream contains dextrose which I seem to be able to handle a bit better as I was told dextrose is the same as glucose so no fructose which I try to avoid as much as possible to my knowledge. Anyway I think I had entirely one fully loaded medium bowl of soft icecream(as I went multiple times for small servings) heaped everytime with lots of whipped cream. They also had Tiramisu,which I took 2small pieces of but only ate the Mascarpone out of it and left the cake. Though the Mascarpone definitely had sugar in it too.
Then came the second splurge of diarrea afterwards. After this happens,I usually feel like ordering stuff again (at that moment I was at the McDonalds) however I didn’t as I do not want to become too full.
My legs&feet are actually burning&feeling a lot stronger&sweat pouring out of my armpits which doesnt smell too nice;),I’m feeling more clearheaded yet also very mild anxiety in the back of my head regarding turning this over to Paleo(and also how much I ate today)&going probably to feel anxious again and from a practical point of view how to handle it all,trying to get myself to eat 3meals a day(which would require me to get up earlier,which means the day even lasts longer and really have to search things to combat boredom as doing something creative lately gives me crippling anxiety attacks for no reason.I actually want to work again,but have no idea what I want to do anymore as I seem to want very contrasting things,yet the thought of how to handle the eating stresses me,so not try to think about it now, at the moment even the one morning I at the moment currently do voluntary work,having to eat&prepare meals at home,what to eat etc.,however I don’t want to keep doing this to myself also from a financial point of view.Work&stress wise it be ideal if I could work from home or at least be selfemployed or being able to regulate my working hours so that I can handle the food thing better/keep on track and also workout&or go to the gym whenever I want,however being at home also scares me on most days.(I’m thinking more&more that if one might keep their bad hosts “happy” they also make you “feel happy”?bc ATM I feel like wanting to exercise hard&getting up early tommorrow to go to the gym,no anxiety regarding being at home&feeling like doing stuff though it’s almost bedtime.)
I’m just so lost&clueless regarding life/what to do and am trying different kinds of things to move forward but not really getting anywhere.
There actually once was a Paleoish doctor who gave someone on MDA a calculation program and according to this doc’s calculation programm I needed 100gr.of Carbs,100gr.of proteine,and around 80gr.of fat to heal the adrenals/thyroid?..which kinda scares the f*ck out of me,bc this regular dietician I talked about calculated the same carbwise,lower in proteine and virtually no fat! So I guess this calculation comes down to Matt Stone’s kinda RRARFing theory and I’m just so scared I’m gonna gain massive amounts of bodyfat this way?.yet it might help me out of this hormonal&therefore emotional mess,,however if I’ll have to try to hit those targets I have to be counting/measuring/weighing stuff again which let me to all these food-issues in the first place. I just want to be able to eat whatever&trust my body,not feel anxious/lethargic anymore,feel great without anxiety about gaining and working out 5days a week again but this time loving it and not being scared anymore about how much I might eat, but most of all not think about macro’s&types of food anymore. This Doctor Garrett Smith actually was also mentioned in an article of Performance Menu called “The Case for High Carb Paleo?.however I don’t do Crossfit at the moment trying to start with Strongliftish program(though I’m really at virtually no weight at all,which they actuallly “advised me to stay on for the first couple of 4weeks however the programm says something else),unfortunately bc it’s nowhere near me.I was wondering if CF exercises can be done in a regular gym with no equipment as a replacement for HIIT?Or how HIIT can be done in a gym as I imagine it might be such a hassle to programm/having to push buttons while being busy on the threadmill. Also I never was kind of a runner,due to pain/weak in knees?.which btw at the moment is gone completely too!and I’m actually not thinking about food.Yet I know it’s also detrimental to me,as I know the coming days I’ll get constipated,foul smelling gas,mood disorders,dry skin&dandruff,bladderproblems as in incontinence by feeding the molds again? I’m actually thinking of buying&going to take L-Glutamine powder at meals bc I really at the moment cant stand bonebroths,also bc I failed at making them correctly everytime so I dont feel like making them anymore at the moment.
At moments like this I most of the time watch this video as I actually like her meals,they look delicious and as if it’s not too much work&hassle regarding pots&pans yet varied in the way of vegetables bc I wish I had such inspiration regarding what to eat&combine and make simple healthy dishes. The only thing I don’t like is all the olive oil,though I like the way her salads look,I’d like to have more saturated fat instead of olive oil(though I do like it) though it’s really hard regarding salad dressings as coconut oil&butter cool down and set immediately again. And the other thing I don’t use is the soysauce,though it really is easy to combine with stuff to flavour (I actually heard about something called “coconut aminos” that should kinda taste the same? but it’s not for sale over here,nobody even heard of it). Apart from that,I like her enthusiasm and non-issues regarding macro’s as in too many veggies even the higher carb ones such as pumpkin,fruits(though bc of fructose I virtually cant eat fruit,apart from banana/plantain and a small bit of honey which are both high in Carb/Sugar and I dont see her eating that) proteine,fat,dairy(whether lowfat or highfat) and even sweetener/stevia eating this way!
Anyone/Matt any ideas/interpretations/advise regarding this please?foodintakewise today,exercise wise,the Paleo docs calculations etc…..:s (might I have unconsciously hit the Paleo docs calculations?probably even overdone it regarding fats&carbs:s )
I’d be very interested too,to read guestblogs preferrably with different transformational pics regarding especially women who rrarfed gained weight and lost it easily again,what they did/ate,exercise/movement and other healing methods and how they got off all dietary dogmas regarding macros,trusting oneself etc.
Even when not featured on this site but maybe poiting links to their own blogs would be helpful already! big bonus if they also dealt with lyme and/or other parasites!
I received this email yesterday, if this helps…
It’s been a while but I thought I’d check back in with my favourite health writer!
So, I followed your stuff my face ;-) and heal my metabolism programme for around 3 months, and I gained a little weight, but thoroughly enjoyed myself in the process! I then decided to clean up my diet and see what happened. This has involved cutting calories a little (not too much), eating nothing processed, and as exercise I tagged on walking a couple of miles a day to the station 5 days a week. Nothing too strenuous at all, and no other exercise apart from the walking. All the while, I’ve been monitoring my temps for fertility using a sensor that I wear 24 hours a day under my arm to give an accurate reading so that I could see whether the changes were impacting my metabolism.
I started this 7 weeks ago and I am now down 21 pounds (as of last Friday) and a couple of dress sizes. I am eating well and am hardly exercising much so I am shocked by the results. After an initial temp drop in the first 3 weeks which worried me, I added back in more calories in the form of protein at lunch as this seemed to be what I was craving, and my temps have now gone back up to my starting levels (98). I couldn’t tell you how many calories I’ve been eating but I’ve never gone hungry. I have never, ever lost this much weight this consistently in 7 weeks before, (even following an almost identical eating plan to the one I’m following now), and with so little effort. I haven’t been depressed from the food or stressed by the exercise regime, and I’ve just been less stressed overall in general (weight loss starts when stress stops?). I’ve still allowed myself things like a few squares of dark chocolate each night, and the odd glass of wine here and there, so none of this has felt extreme. When I had events to go to where I had to eat what I was given, I just ate it, including desserts and breadJ.
I think the difference here has got to be the 3 months of eating to recover my adrenals and metabolism, along with the stress reduction. I feel great and my mood has picked up substantially. My skin problems have cleared up and my fertility cycles and hormone levels are starting to balance out. I honestly can’t believe these results. I’m going to continue with this for 3 months to see how the weight loss goes as I still have around another 40 pounds to lose, but I’m in no hurry to get there. I’m hoping to fall pregnant in the meantime as I’m going to start trying again now, so weight loss is not my actual goal here. Going to add in some twice weekly resistance training regimes too.
So?.thanks to the health guru that is you for your help and advice?it wasn’t an approach I would ever have considered or known about before. It works!
Thanx Matt,but she claims that she still needs/wants to lose 40pounds but has already lost 21….so did she actually gain 60pounds in the process?:s
I’d very much would like some examples with physical transformations(& Paleo) if possible.
I really can’t sit my ass down and just eat whatever….I even don’t seem to be able to when exercising. (It seems like my exercise anxiety,moods,especially hunger&cravings/feelings of ‘starving’ etc. also have a lot to do with my digestion,time of day,possible fluid intake,&retention lots of factors actually which make me even more anxious.Then there’s the Lyme&molds,however according to my naturopath the Lyme should be gone though I havent checked it somewhere yet but I do suffer from molds which I’d like to get out ASAP but don’t know how to. Like I said I want to be able to eat happily&carelessly healthy like the girl in the video but it’s unfortunately not that simple as a lot of food appears to stress my adrenals probably bc of feeding the molds. I really don’t know how to reverse it.
I am burning hot most of the time,which actually doesnt make me feel that great usually.
I think you need to just set up a consultation with Matt Dutchie. You gotta learn to seriously let go, eating what you reaaally want (may have side effects at first) and not caring about your body image, you’ll get healthier and should feel better. You seem to be eating tons of protein and not a lot of carbs, seems kinda bad, but I’m no professional. I’ve done a lot of the same stuff, but I’m so much better now…Eating Mr. Hero right now because I worked really hard today, I’m tired, and I need some serious calories and don’t really feel like cooking. Yeah, its glutenous bread, but with steak, onions, mushrooms, and real butter =) A piece of cheesecake too, which I wish was all natural but im sure contains a lot of bs, but it’ll be fine, i wont die, and I’ll have some vitamin E with it, and idk, the healthier you get, the more resilient your body gets too, and less allergies etc…GOD SPEED =P
I wish that was the case for me too,however it’s my unfortunate reality that i’m defenitely am doing wrong by eating whatever that i’d like,eating at restaurants bc it makes me feel more at ease,gives me a sense of pleasure and stressrelief(very shortterm duration though bc then my adrenals kick in to let me know that i yet again did stupid things to feed the wrong organisms,and this isnt just bc they’re carbs/refined sugar it also happens with whole foods such as cheese and mushrooms fo4 instance bc they feed molds&yeasts too. So thats how one gets foodissues,especially regarding pleasure&food and then on top the whole carbthing by paleo. I immediately get punished for it the next following days bc I keep feeding all the pathogens and shit that reside within me along with other physical problems….so it actually is this repetitive vicious cycle that i’m and just dont know how to deal with.
As far as proteine goes….its the only thing that seems to satiate me,fat&carbs on their own just dont work. I guess thats why unconsciously I always safe most of my proteine in a meal for last.
Also @Matt I have another question regarding something you wrote in there anout PUFA such as found in chicken. I actually like chicken especially the parts with skin,which are the fatty pufa parts:(….however i was wondering,i have this grillpan for years which i never used bc i just didnt know how(maybe another cooking 180degree video subject?cooking for noobs;)) i read some articles online which state that it is a healthy way to cook lowfat (which would leave room to add other fatsources to veggies for instance) so i was wondering if id gr8ll chicken thighs that would diminish pufas bc as i understand grilling renders out fat to some degree? Though from what ive seen they sometimes coat even fatty pieces with usially olive oil,which i dont use,or to marinate with. With lean meats such as chicken breast i get its to prevent sticking to the pan,however i dont get why’d they would do it for fatty pieces such as lambchop,chicken thighs etc or does it render out more fat if id for instance would spray/coat it with some coconut oil?. If they first claim its a healthy lowfat way of cooking? (i did however see a vid with duckbreast where they didnt,however they did use the fat that flowed out into the grillpan to sautee veggies in).
If you cant have what your body really needs because you think, or you truly have fungus and parasites in your body, then I really don’t know what to tell you. The only direction I could steer you in, is to talk to Matt, or there is a dude on youtube, his channel is called facelessfatloss Super duper nice guy, has some crazy methods of health that I probably dont really agree with a lot of them, but he claims he’s really good at getting the body free of bullshit. Recommends things like a product called Opti-Silver (some ionic stuff), it’s supposedly more advanced than a colloid, and is much more effective and remains bioavailable after stomach acids, all this crazy stuff. But seriously though, screwin around with all that stuff (I wouldn’t worry about argyria, especially with what he uses) you can really screw your shit up, so if you look into it, you better speak with him personally and have some serious guidance by people you really trust, and I don’t know who that’d be lol. The dude stays shredded 24/7 and claims he has gotten rid of serious problems of his own, including unbearable pains etc…Like I said, seems like a really awesome dude, just uhh, idk, lil extreme, and maybe not as healthy as I USED to think unfortunately. Although I never did buy his program or anything, I’m cheap, and I just watch video’s and read free content to learn all my stuff, for now that is.
Thanx 4 the tip Bob:)
However I unfortunately cant afford expensive international supplements,programs,doctors etc. Even though the more specialized ones are amongst others situated in the US. I cant even barely pay for therapists on various levels here,let alone the fact that theyre less specialized at least most of them. So i’ll have to settle with a very kind woman with a really good and great heart who offered to treat me through color therapy for free. I know its out there….but its really the only option i have. Just dont know how effective it is….(according to her for instance she doesnt detect the lyme anymore,but to be sure and check im gonna need a LBA which is another shitload of money+traincosts) yet i keep wasting the xtra money i might get by selling some of my stuff on going to restaurants bcit gives me a very shortterm feeling of pleasure,cosiness,normalcy and whatever even though i know better about what happens after,food not really tasting that great,mental&moodrollercoaster i put myself through,cravingaddictions etc. Im such a horrib/e stupid moron!
Btw is there anyone who has experience&succes with The Fatloss Bible by Anthony Colpo?
(Not that I need to lose fat now,as my body I fear is trying to pack it on. I’m just curious what it’s all about food&exercise wise,maybe I might find some valuable information in there,while having to gain I’m gonna do it the right way and create a lean strong defined body instead of fat packing on randomly everywhere,especially on my belle/waist. There actually only needs to go a tiny bit of fat towards my boobs,the looser skin needs to be tightened up by muscles not filled with amounts of fat.)
Wow….I really have respect for this guy! Especially bc he’s one of the few people daring to honestly and openly talk about the psychological challenges.
