What you need:
Probiotics... 30 Billion per capsule. Not serving size. Per capsule.
Bragg's Organic raw apple cider vinegar with the Mother... big bottle
Glutamine - an amino acid that helps with immune boosting, muscle repair,
and it soothes the stomach and GI tract when inflamed
Protein - Clean Whey Isolate. Link below.
What to do:
Glutamine - for anyone with bloating issues after they eat, IBS, colitis, or systemic inflammation.
5 grams 5 times a day... Take it 5 minutes before meals and snacks
Glutamine - for training recovery:
5-8 (smaller person/larger person) grams immediately before you start working out.
5-8 grams in your water DURING your workout.
5-8 grams immediately AFTER your workout.
Protein - Clean Whey Isolate. So important that I sourced it myself. Get it here.
This stuff is pure pristine protein. Period.
Take 20 grams prior to your workout, and 25/50 grams immediately AFTER your workout.
Carbs - This is my protocol for keeping blood sugar low, insulin from spiking, and fat from being stored.
Before eating ANY carb other than veggies (you know, the kind that you don't eat enough of)... sugars or starches, that is... which you should limit to sweet potatoes, cherries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, etc, strawberries, apples, and greenish bananas (just a bit on the green side doesn't have as much sugar content, but all the nutrients). I get frozen organic cherries, blueberries, strawberries, and I cut and freeze my own chunks of watermelon. Eating them frozen makes it seem like a dessert but it slows you down, so they last a long time, or you don't eat as many. And they're loaded with anti-oxidants and other nutrients.
Get healthy tip. Get ripped tip. 15 minutes prior to eating sweet potatoes or fruit (or any other carb, if you're taking that risk), take a 30 Billion organism probiotic capsule, then immediately before taking your first bite, drink a tablespoon of Raw Organic Apple Cider Vinegar with the Mother.
Fat - eliminate ALL trans fats = processed fats, artificial fats, and fried foods. They're the biggest sources of free radicals and inflammation. That translates to faster aging, deterioration, illness/disease, wrinkles, and so on.
DO eat almonds, cashews, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, hemp meal, coconut oil, and eat fish or take high balanced EPA/DHA fish oil capsules. Just get all of these and cycle them during your weekly meals. A little of this, a little of that for any meal that doesn't have much fat in it. That means any meal that doesn't have fish, steak, dark meat chicken/turkey, or eggs in it.
Oh, and saturated fat is not BAD for you. Eat a few steaks a week, you'll be fine. Eat egg yolks, they provide great cholesterol, which we need!
Interesting Fact About Carbs:
Heard of essential fatty acids?
Those are the Omega 3's and other related. We must get them from our diet, because our bodies cannot make them.
Our bodies create its own cholesterol if it's too low. Do you think high cholesterol warnings might be an incorrect one? Every cell in our body is made using cholesterol.
Heard of essential amino acids?
Those are a handful that we cannot make in the liver. We must get them from our diet.
Heard of essential carbohydrates?
No. They don't exist. Our bodies will CREATE glucose when blood sugar gets too low. It creates it all day long, if needed. Stop being mentally addicted to carbs. Eliminate processed carbs (and everything else) and watch how quickly things change for the better.
What to avoid like the plague:
Artificial anything, but certainly sweeteners Aspartame (SweetnLow) and Sucralose (Splenda). They are horrible for you. Watch the videos.
