I just read this in the Washington Post this morning.  I thought it was worth sharing on this thread:

ADMIN edit:  Article about the effects of coal power plant emissions reductions on mecury in fish.

Thank you, Lloyd!

Quoted from Brimstone
Patty H I think you should look into kelp and make up your own mind.
You will be able to get your thyroid panel tested privately...I've just been looking into ordering these test myself as we also need to know what our free T3 is and our reverse T3 is as well as T4 TSH and antibodies. Thyroid is very complicated and we are all different and you need to look at the whole picture.
Also adrenal testing and hormones...


I've had my adrenals and hormones tested.  I was in adrenal fatigue but things are better now and now am past menopause.  I have lots of hormone tests in my possession . . .

Do you drink lemon juice in hot water?   (reply) Posted by: Patty H
Date Posted: Monday, November 28, 2016, 1:04pm
My new European-trained naturopath has me doing this again.  I did do it for some time but dropped the habit.  To the lemon water I add a couple of remedies - ReHydration and SpectraMin, both by Energetix.  I also add Black Seed Oil and sea or Himalayan salt.  I don't love this first thing in the morning but I'm doing it.  I do drink lemon water or lime water or plain water throughout the day as well.

A1c levels rather high despite years on SWAMI   (reply) Posted by: Patty H
Date Posted: Sunday, November 27, 2016, 12:29pm
I've recently learned from a European-trained naturopath that the top end of the reference ranges on some blood tests are too high and once you hit them or are close to them, you are on your way to disease.

The important issue that Christopher1 pointed out in his initial post is a family history of diabetes and concern that his level is high to him.

I would again recommend cutting out all simple carbs (grains) and eating very few, if any fruits other than berries.  Eating carbs with more fat is a sure recipe for weight gain.

Christopher1, maybe you should consider purchasing and watching The Fat Summit 2 by Dr. Mark Hyman who wrote, Eat Fat, Get Thin.  Unfortunately, it is no longer free ...

Do you know what your T4 results were Patty H? Low T4 would add to diagnosis...this is all new to me too though.
Not hijacking, this is all very interesting.
We are all on this forum because we have health concerns and realise that what we eat makes a huge difference to our health...especially if we fine tune it to our respective blood types.
Eric made a really good point about kelp...thyroid 'experts' across the forums that are just about testing and meds, say no...but...is this right for everyone when we know food, nutrients, supplements can all have different influences depending on what blood type you are?
With thyroid issues one size definitely does not fit all which I suppose could be said for a lot o

I hope this won't be considered hijacking the thread - it thought it might be helpful for others to see regarding thyroid.

Last week I went to see a new naturopath who uses bio-energetic analysis.  She was trained in Europe and looks at things somewhat differently.  I'm still seeing my other naturopath and see their different approaches as complimentary.  She asked me to bring in all of my recent blood work.  It was interesting because she looked at some of my results and although they are within the normal reference ranges, she flagged them and said they were not normal as far as the way she interprets test results.  The reference range for my TSH is 0.27- 4.20 ulU/mL.  ...

Brimstone, I found this link to Wellness Mama who was also diagnosed with Hashimoto's disease.  You can see from her diet that it is slightly different from the normal high healthy fat diet but grains and sugar are definitely not allowed.

And this from Hypothyroid Mom:

Regarding avoids on these diets, unless you think there is a very good reason to include them, I would stay away.  Bacon and pork can easily be avoided by eating other more health protein sources.

As far as coconut oil goes, substitute homemade ghee with grass fed butter.  I'm also consum...

I also would recommend cutting out the grains and eliminating sugar altogether and upping your healthy fats like avocado and EVOO.  Grains and sugar are inflammatory whereas EVOO is very anti-inflammatory.  I don't have any autoimmune disease but I am following The Rosedale Diet and cross referencing my SWAMI.  I eat somewhat similarly to Mother.  I'm following that diet to try minimize my significant family history of heart disease.  It's a diet you could research as well.  All diseases start with inflammation.

It's very easy to do a high fat diet without bacon or coconut oil.  You could make your own ghee and use that instead.   My diet differs from...

Pecan Low Carb "Bullet" Snack   (reply) Posted by: Patty H

Quoted from san j
Good morning, ladies. Gee whiz, punish a friend for sharing!

@Patty H:
Seeing as you're sitting in the seat of a "disqualifier", it's interesting that you "didn't bother to even look at at the other ingredients"! Since your role on the thread is to be a judging one, you might have examined the entire recipe before jumping the gun. You would have noticed that I used coconut (organic) in there, and, if you'd looked it up, you'd have learned that that actually disqualified YOUR disqualification of the Kefir's "ZERO dietary fiber" by supplying both fiber and even more medium chain triglycerides to the recipe!
You might also have demanded I submit my proportions of other ingredients

How to get this B back on track   (reply) Posted by: Patty H

Iben, I need to get back on track with my Rosedale keto diet as well.  I got thrown off track around my birthday.  I'm still doing ok, only up a pound or two since my low on the three week plan, but truthfully, after my birthday, it's been harder for me do to work and other issues.

Today is a reset for me!  That being said, we celebrate Thanksgiving on Thursday, so that will be a difficult day because the only thing I have been asked to bring to my brother's is something that would not be allowed on my ketogenic diet.  Turkey is find, but all the side dishes and desserts will be difficult!

I'm going to try to work my way through the holidays as best as I can.

Pecan Low Carb "Bullet" Snack   (reply) Posted by: Patty H
Date Posted: Monday, November 21, 2016, 2:54pm
Quoted from Mother
No apologies necessary. I am saying sanj s recipes are NOT  bullletproof. Fat bombs and bullletproof  are low carb, high fat and barely any protein. Neither spike insulin. I don't eat either but they both can have their place. Personally, the fat bombs look delish but I've never made any.  Good ole avocado is fat bomb enough for me. No need to go to extremes.


I did look at the recipes and they do look a bit much for me as well.  That being said, being a former pastry chef, I am often asked to bring a dessert when eating at a friend's house, which I love to do.  I bookmarked the link so that if it is not a birthday cake or specific request of one of my signatu...

My mistake and my apologies, Mother, on what a fat bomb is.  I assumed you were saying that San j's snack was not good because it has carbs, and carbs and fat promote fat accumulation on the body.

I'm going to check out the fat bomb recipes!

As another contrast, SquarePeg and Chloe use stevia.  Stevia has 1g of carbs, 1g of dietary fiber (which cuts the carb load in half) and ZERO grams of sugar.

http://www.calorieking.com/foods/calories-in-sugar-substitutes-stevia-sweetener_f-ZmlkPTk2NjAy.html

One thing of note:  when you read many of the info online regarding a ketogenic diet and using sweeteners, you will find that many of the experts agree that giving up sugar in any form, even if allowed because of a low carb load, is a much better long-term plan because you eliminate your taste for sweet foods.  This is what I have been saying over and over.  Eating sweet foods can cause cravings for more sweet foods. &nb...

I believe what Mother means by a "fat bomb" is that fat and carbs combined are a very bad combo because the body will burn the carbs first and store the fat.  When carbs are not present, the body burns the fat instead.  That is the main principle of a ketogenic diet.

Like I said in my previous post, just the kefir alone would disqualify your recipe as bulletproof.  I didn't bother to even look at the other ingredients.

Here is the info on one serving (1cup) of organic whole milk plain kefir:

Quoted from Eric
I've been fighting hypothyroidism over the last 10 years, without medical intervention. I've had peaks and valleys, but overall my TSH has continued to climb. Was tested a few weeks ago and it was 20 (highest it had ever been before was 6). Kelp/fucus, iodine, selenium, 100% BTD compliance, stress reduction, meditation, you name it. I've accepted that this is just something I can't beat. Started Levothyroxine (Synthroid, et al) and have been doing great. I seem to only need about 50mcg, but I have yet to be re-tested (all of this is out-of-pocket, but that's a different discussion). I also have pretty severe SAD, so I've been on Bupropn (Wellbutrin) with phenomenal results. No side-effects, and I can actually function normally du

It's my hope that Dr. D will change all the diets to reflect the new information on the negative health benefits of all forms of sugar.  It has ZERO nutritional value and promotes diseases including heart disease, diabetes, cancer, metabolic syndrome, obesity.

Chloe's recipe is made with nuts and nut flour and while I would not make cookies myself, are very low carb with only a 1/4 cup of Stevie and 2 carbs per cookie which looks much lower carb than "candy" or your pudding.  Chloe also was kind enough to provide the nutritional breakdown so that it was, indeed, easy to see that the cookies are low carb. Kefir is very high in both sugar and carbs, according to http://www.caloriecount.com  I didn't...

Neither you nor Patty had any problem with Stevia in Chloe's recipe. In fact, you both thanked her for it - and you yourself said you had Stevia on order! But now, on page 2 of this thread, it's suddenly problematic?  


Considering that "Bullet Snack" was not found in a google search, we can each interpret the term as we like, apparently, with no one here more an "expert" than anyone else, no? Especially since my own recipe called for "your chosen sweetener".  

PS. It's FOOD. It's a Snack. I think that means: Enjoy it.

At the time you did SWAMI, the option to control Mercury contaminated foods was not in SWAMI XP.  But I am pretty sure this option was in SWAMI GenoType at that time. The labeling is a little different in SWAMI GenoType, but I think it works the same way in both.  

The instructions practitioners are given for SWAMI GenoType is that we should only check a few items. Otherwise, the selections start to cancel each other out.

Since you had a number of health issues I presume Dr. Nash decided that some of the other settings in this section were more important than the mercury. I do not know what those were in your case. But I do know that in the section where a practitioner set how

When using SWAMI, the user chooses how much they are concerned with mercury contamination.

Since I am sensitive to mercury, I checked both of the checkboxes in SwamiXP for Mercury Contaminated,

Shark and sword fish are both avoids.

King mackerel should not be listed in anyone's SWAMI. This food does not exist in the SWAMI database.  "Mackerel, Atlantic" and "Mackerel, Spanish" are listed and both avoids for me.

Big eye tuna should not be listed in anyone's SWAMI. This food does not exist in the SWAMI database.  Bluefin another large tuna is in the SWAMI database and it is an avoid for me with my mercury settings.

I don't have SWAMI, but the GenoType Diet book offers a range - looks like a Hunter (if you're not still an Explorer?) should use between 6 and 12 ounces of cheese per week (which is quite a bit, actually!) in addition to all the butter and ghee you like ("as desired")! And your Superfood cheeses are the same as the diamond cheeses I, as a Nomad, really enjoy most anyway (my allowance is only slightly higher -  8-16 oz/week).
Note that, as "Fats and Oils", Hunters may enjoy Butter and Ghee 3-9x/week @1 Tbsp ... but "as desired" as "Dairy".  
For Nomads they're considered "Fats and Oils" and are considered Superfoods to be used less often: 3

Less of a candy snack -- more of a dessert pudding:

Melt EVCO. Add unsweetened cocoa powder and your chosen sweetener. (Then I added some very fine ground coconut pulp.) Blend well.
To this base add your chosen protein powder (mine has vanilla in it) and when well blended, pour vanilla kefir over it and mix.

Mousse-y dessert tonight - Satisfying: Hit the spot.  


Neither your candy nor your pudding would be considered "bullet" snacks if they have sweeteners.  Sweeteners are not allowed on a ketogenic diet.

I guess so- I dont think there is any reason to import expensive european dairy- You still have some good dairy in US - just have to watch.

In milder countries like UK, Ireland and France cows are outdoor all year -but they are fed a little grain as well.


Kerry Gold butter from Ireland is supposed to be 100% grass fed.  I should look to see if they export other dairy products as well.

Quoted from Henriette Bsec
It depends of country and if they are organic or not.
Danish is not 100% grassfed
- we have to keep them indoors from november to early april - ALL organic cows in EU HAS to be on grass all spring -summer and early autumn.
They are fed a mix of hay -some root veggies and smaller amounts of organic grain- but far better than conventional cows, that in many cases never see any grass.
Organic dairy ( even with some grain) has a better omega3 and CLA than conventional dairy.


Thank so much, Iben.  If that is the case, I could probably get the same products locally here.  Hopefully folks from some of the other countries will chime in!
