So around last Wednesday I decided to give this Primal Diet thing a go.
Seems pretty interesting to me, especially since my Doctor told me I have 2 out of the 3 gluten intolerance genes. When I first listened to this episode I was hesitant, I was following along until he said giving up all grains. Hold the phone, jettison the baby and bathwater. I love my grains. Every day I would have a huge bowl of oats as well as rice for lunch and dinner. I’d just bought Tupperware for both these grains. I mean come on. Anyway for whatever reason I tried to give it a go, I started reading the new book on my kindle, which I subsequently returned since The Primal Blueprint was more what I wanted (the new one focuses on health and fitness for endurance.. I just want the diet). So the reason I wanted to start the diet is basically the results I was really hoping for. I’m actually super happy with the results. I had a bit of a read on marksdailyapple.com which basically had everything I wanted from the book.
Been having some stomach problems since the start of the year, so got my digestive system tested. The reason for the test was actually acute sugar sensitivity, where a small amount of sugar, say 2 teaspoons hiding in a nut ‘health bar’ would make me feel crap within a couple minutes. I know most of the serotonin in the body is produced in the stomach so I figured this may have something to do with it. One of the problems detected was Blastocystis which is a stomach parasite. I was prescribed antibiotics which I held off from for a couple weeks while I tried natural methods (Paracea, garlic 3 times a day and 3 drops of MMS hourly for 8 hrs a day for a few days and various probiotics). This didn’t seem to solve the problem so I went with the antibiotics. Just finished that yesterday but still noticing a crash towards the end of the day. So today I watched this video which was all like hey Goji is the greatest thing ever. I stumbled upon it because a natropath I saw recently commented on how my red blood cells were stuck together, so I was looking into that. Seems they are talking about Goji berries, luckily I found some at my local supermarket basically straight away. This lead me back to this guy, who was the reason I have Chaga mushroom powder sitting in my room, which is another thing I need to look into preparing.
Gobi berries cost $7 for 150g at Coles so I think I’ll be snacking on these for a while, so addictive. I wanted to know a good dose, in this study they took 120ml for a fortnight… although they were taking this stuff and I’m not sure of the potency. I just had a bunch of yoghurt (first time having sugar in a while actually) as well as some Goji berries and I feel more energised… hmm.. anyway. Will be interesting to experiment with this in the afternoon tomorrow…
