holy shit. he looks good lol
now we just need him to start using cannabis too...
I'm so happy that you guys are doing this!! and props to stow for the fast, it's rough!
Glad- i was reading a book i picked up called "Great Taste, No Pain" -seems to be the author's wife had IBS and other problems and they were introduced to "food combining" has Belle heard of this or oriented anything like that to her diet? ..basically at the simplest just combining high water foods vs starch and protein.
http://www.acidalkalinediet.com/food-combining-chart haven't delved much into that site yet beyond watch the video but seems about the same basics.
just backtrack from any diet site that want your money.. of course.

The importance being that our bodies metabolize different foods at different rates, so if you eat a big bowl of pasta (which takes a while to break down) followed by a piece of fruit (which our bodies metabolize quickly), the fruit will sit in your GI tract, partially digested waiting for the carbs/pasta to broken down ahead of them, which causes all sorts of stomach irritation which can inflame diseases such as diverticulitis, crohns, etc.
This might be worth while looking in to glad!
Good looking out tom!

Who would have thunk it?
So if us humans had it right to start with then dessert is the hardest to metabolize and soup and salad are the easiest?
Miss Manners you know.

Dude it makes a ton of sense; I'm surprised this hasn't gotten more press.
I wonder if you ate only one thing at a meal if it would make it even easier to digest?
Maybe have lots of one course 'snacks' instead of full meals.
How is Belle doing?

[QUOTE=FatMarty;How is Belle doing?[/QUOTE]
I could do several pages on this. That is why I haven't mentioned it. lol.
My little sis got herself into some trouble and she has a two year old. Belle snapped into action and went and got my nephew out of his 'situation'. It wasn't easy, let me leave it at that.
On top of watching him, she has taken him down every week to see him mom. I have been just blown away. She loves kids. (Really young people and very old people, the rest of us - maybe not so much. lol) Well last week she had an attack real bad, I took her to emergency and they kept her about 4 hours and she was good. I was like WTF? Then a few days later they went to see momma on sunday and had doctors on monday. This is a figure 8 tour of Michigan for a few days. She has done great. It's like time just went back 7-8 years (minus the visit to ER). Well yesterday she was pretty bad. It looked like everything is catching up with her. I am really wondering what today is going to bring.
My father has been staying with us the last 2 years. He is Vietnam vet, in wheelchair. Lt Dan from forest gump is exactly what should come to mind. lmao. So anyway, children do not ever come over. We had a few days to get all grow equip, meds, blah blah blah, off the main level of house. I had two grow tents in my office that I was getting ready to fire up and was venting them though his - now room. His room is when my somali taxi ride was. I had to take all that downstairs to where I had just begun remodeling. You want to talk about a mess that got out of control. Pretty damn crazy. Yesterday I spent the entire day just sorting through shit and straightening out my grow. It is so sweet now. So Belle has been doing very very good. Not sure how long she will be doing this but they have the surgery on hold probably for a few more weeks. It was pretty crazy but my nephew is safe. That is the important thing.
As far as our grow. We are setting everything up right, I was very tempted to cut corners and didn't. We worked through it, and we should be able to do 2 or 3 times more than we were, and use less than half the space.

Learning How To Roll
Learning How To Roll
The concepts on food combining that you are discussing is a large part of healthy digestion in general and is referenced in a handful of sources, (several low fat raw vegan references, look up Doug Graham or 80/10/10) though it hasn't quite taken off as you said. This is because almost all people like to eat so much that we've made a fancy addiction out of it to avoid some degree of emotional acknowledgement. This keeps the press on it down, through a subconscious self-imposition along the lines of denial acting upon the hive mind.

The "Many small things" approach will complicate the matter further, more than likely. It maybe could be done very carefully, but the stomach even produces different acids for different things, and therefore you can get a sour stomach from eating things in the wrong order. The first idea of solo meals will yield better results, and should be followed by a cessation period of a couple hours so that it can move out of the stomach and into the lower digestive tract. It's not only the order due to speed of digestion but also because of the different ways different foods are treated in the stomach as well.
The trade off is that you will end up with less food variety in the diet and therefore a decrease in the 'pleasure factor' of eating. But, the less you indulge in the pleasure seeking aspects of food (even down to the basic ones that move it above a 'need' into preferences for specific consumables) the more you will benefit in terms of health or form. The upsides to solo meals of just one thing at a time are smoother digestion, less gas. In some cases the core stabilizes in ways it could not before due to chronic gas and bloating.

Are you looking to begin growing? Or looking for a supply of medication or just strain ideas that could help?
