Re: Non-Bluetooth Sleep Trackers

Hopefully their next version Also, have a look at the Whoop tracker. Love the interface, the monthly cost is a bit of a pain, but it does give good data. F...

Re: Non-Bluetooth Sleep Trackers

Thanks for sharing info on Dreem 2 and also the info on the discount. I picked one up at the discounted rate and have used it twice thus far. It takes a bit getting used to on the first night but it wasn't too bad last night. So far it seems to do everything advertised and I like seeing the deep sle...

Re: Prolon Mimicking Diet

I started off doing a modified version of the Prolon diet with the main thing being to try to match the macro breakdown as much as possible. I erred on the side of lower calories and macros and this is what I came up with to try and match the spirit of the FMD. I kept it very simple and straight for...

Re: Google as Big Brother?

The same thing happened to Examine.com, a great resource with unbiased reviews on all sorts of supplements. Link to their Examine's article on being removed from search results: https://examine.com/nutrition/google-update-july-2019/ I've been pretty disappointed with how easily You Tube and other al...

Re: Need input into my lipids please

HI, I was told I'm a hyperabsorber and was told to try Plant Sterols/Stanols. But if I hyperabsorb doesn't that mean I have high levels of sterols? I'm confused. Do those work? Wouldn't Zetia be better? I've read stuff about Plant Sterols actually causing harm. Help! I've never dealt with sterols b...

Re: Best baby formula and why for babies that can't breast feed?

Thanks, I wouldn’t have thought of European brands. Can they be found in US stores or just online? It is difficult to find a legit distributor as the product isn't approved for import into the US. The first website I found was a total racket. You had to pay a monthly fee and then that allowed you t...

Re: Gundry internet ads

For the general population, I don’t think it’s the big, bad monster it’s been portrayed to be, but because of studies that show that’s not entirely true for ε4s, I go the conservative route and moderate my saturated fat intake: no cheese, no meat except fish and only small portions of that, and bas...
