Quoted from lola
do you eat only grass fed and organic meats?
or are you not that strict?
the reason I ask is because down here, I have a hard time finding those.
I have to unfortunately settle for what is available.

yet I do feel energized and peaceful!


This is probably longer than it needs to be, , but:

Lola, I don't know about farming practices in Mexico but for what it's worth... I've long known I had a corn sensitivity and so have sought foods that don't contain it. We have a great chain of clean, nice 'dollar stores' in Southern California called 99 Cents Only. I started going there for things like paper towels and then wondered how their canned goods were as they can be 1/3 the price of some other grocery stores. I don't eat canned items a lot, but was pleasantly surprised to find out that a lot of products - which originated in countries south of the U.S. and were probably originally meant to be sold in those markets - had much less junk in them than products marketed in mainstream U.S. grocers. I saw far, far less corn syrup added, and often not such a sophisticated and potentially troubling melange of additives. The quality of most things has actually been quite good.

So, all this is to say that while I don't know for sure, it's possible Mexico has, all things considered, a more favorable supply of mainstream foods than does the U.S. in terms of source ingredients and processing.

Interesting, definitely. But you don't crave a salt lick or pine needles or anything?  


Oh, by the way - regarding the catecholamines comment earlier... for that you also may want to read up at NAP on Catechol (and its ingredient rhodiola).

Now that you mention it, I've been craving pine needles & a salt lick all day...it's nice after a big drink at the river

Mike O,

Do you personally notice any weight change (non-muscle) depending on which red meat source you use?

Thanks,

RT


I have never really had a weight problem...but grass fed beef or buffalo has a lot less fat in it and considering it's a little more expensive I tend not to eat the large t bones I used to devour...it's also rich in CLA.. Conjugated Linoic Acid which is a known cancer fighter...higher in beta carotene, higher in vitamin E and Omega 3, lower in calories as well...great for O's who struggle with weight

thanks for posting RT!

I actually cook from scratch......so haven t bought anything canned for ages......got tired of looking and reading ingredients in hopes.......you know.

grass fed organic is what I am looking for in terms of animal protein sources.....wild organic for fish, etc/

think that will kick my diet up a notch.....but I do fine with what I have available so far.

I ate a hamburger last night and almost immediately my abdomen swelled up to second-trimester proportions.  

But when I took two Deflects, along with two astragalus, yeast cleanse, zinc and rose hips, almost immediately I started feeling relief.  And within 30 minutes, let's just say that I'm glad I wasn't sitting anywhere near an open flame.  When they first opened King Tut's tomb, I'm sure it smelled better.

after you eat grass fed...most regular grain fed (especially ground beef) meat is very foul

I know astragalus is an adaptogen recommended for Os but can you remind me as to why you think it might've helped on this occasion - along with the zinc and rose hips? Thanks. (It's more apparent to me why the Deflects and yeast cleanse likely helped.)
