Nutrition Talk / Intuitive Eating
« Last post by kristennash on Today at 06:30:19 PM »
 I'm looking for a good book or website that can help someone learn to eat intuitively instead of counting macronutrients and tracking their food constantly.
I myself would like to know more about mindful eating.

Nutrition News & Research / Gastric Sleeve Client
« Last post by sheilahunt on January 14, 2018, 04:31:15 PM »
I'm in my second semester of the Nutrition Consultant program and have someone who is willing to work with me for the class.  She admits she had a gastric sleeve surgery about 6 years ago. 
I'm searching for reliable research on the topic of gastric sleeve and nutrient absorption or lack there of. 
Have any of you worked with a gastric sleeve client and how was your experience?  Anything I need to be aware of?
Thanks in Advance.
Nutrition Talk / Re: Alopecia Barbae + The various types

Alopecia of any kind can be addressed with the AIP (autoimmune protocol) as described here:

Since it is understood that inflammation  is the underlying cause, this is the best approach to getting the best outcome. 

EPIDEMIC OF ABSENCE, by Moishes Velasquez-Monoff is a semi-autobiographical story of a search for the solution to alopecia universalis.  The journey includes acquiring some parasites, the theory being that our immune system is tuned by such exposures, especially early in life.

Does anyone have experience working with Alopecia Barbae? I have a friend who is getting a bald patch in his beard. Is this treated differently from other types?
Nutrition Talk / Effect of Naltrexone or Antabuse in Alcoholic Patients?
« Last post by christineengen on January 10, 2018, 01:47:19 PM »
Hi All, I hope someone can help. I am going to specialize in Mental Health and Substance Abuse. I have a client who takes Naltrexone for cravings (it blocks the pleasure center in the brain, used mostly for opiod abusers but can also work for alcohol abuse) as well as Antabuse (which causes the enzyme that metabolizes alcohol to malfunction, and will make the user very ill if he/she drinks alcohol while on this drug). I cannot find ANYTHING online or otherwise that gives any information about the effects of this drug on general health. I understand that if a Medical Doctor prescribed it, that it is determined by the MD or Psychiatrist to be more beneficial than harmful, however I am curious how I can otherwise support my client's health while she is taking these drugs. Apparently Antibuse can cause harm to the liver if used long term. She has to take blood tests every 3 months to check her liver function.
Anyone? THANKS
Nutrition Talk / Re: Blood sugar and human growth hormone as related to muscle
« Last post by Nori on January 02, 2018, 08:05:21 PM »
I am currently doing HIIT Slow Motion and understand from my trainer, a BC grad, that the carbs restore the glycogen and the protein helps muscle recovery. Fat would slow down delivery of both.

The key here is the type of carbohydrate.  We can agree that unrefined carbs from whole food sources will do the best job, without causing an undue rise of blood glucose.
Nutrition Talk / Blood sugar and human growth hormone as related to muscle
« Last post by punam858 on January 01, 2018, 05:51:06 PM »

My friend who is a personal trainer and I are in disagreement on the consumption of carbohydrates after a 1 hours HIT class or weight training session.  He urges his clients that are looking to build muscle or get toned to eat protein with carbohydrates in order to build muscle after a workout.  He uses muscle and fitness magazines as reference and says bodybuilders load on carbs. His suggests carbs to restore the glycogen stores, and is under the impression that without carbs the body will use up the muscles to make sure.

I disagree with him and suggest protein and fats instead. I make this suggestion with the assumption that a rise in blood sugar will stop the secretion of human growth hormone and therefore the body will not build the muscles necessary. From what I have researched, I came to the understanding that human growth hormone will not be secreted with a raise of  blood sugar:  Carbs raise blood sugar. but protein and fat don't very much.

As well, most people's glycogen stores lasts up to 12 hours and if they have consumed a meal or two that included carbohydrates, there glycogen levels are most probably fine. I am not sure how this theory works for someone on a ketogenic diet.

Any help?

LA animal shelters are interested in choosing a vegan diet for the shelter dogs.  The veterinarians weighing in say dogs are obligate carnivores. You can watch the movie PET FOOLED to see what other vets have to say about "species-appropriate" food for our pets. 

Dr Wendy Becker, DVM is associated with Joseph Mercola (  She has some ideas on how to feed your dog avoid nutrient deficiencies and large vet bills too!)
