Reactive hypoglycemia! I never noticed myself prone to that problem before....
My husband hasn't seen any negative results from the emmer bread. He likes it, but observed that it isn't as tasty as the rye. He gets the rest of the loaf!
My bowels have been rather unhappy today, too. Coincidence...? Anyway, I took some probiotics this afternoon. I think my supper is going to be some "cheese crisps" and kippers. (Cheese crisps are what I call quarter-ounce portions of cheese baked at 450 F on parchment paper till they're brown and bubbly. When they cool enough to handle, they're little disks of heaven!)
HOW THE MIGHTY HAVE FALLEN!!!
I mentioned the other day that i'm reading all of Hyperlipid, from the beginning.
During a discussion of apoptosis, the comment section contains many excellent, clear-thinking inputs from pre-doctor Stephan Guyenet. It's SO SAD! From the bright pre-doc to the "good doctor" has been a biblically-epic fall from intellectual grace!
"Hey Peter,[wanna bet that post is one of the ones he's deleted since?]
"Nice post. I think the connection between insulin, hunger and obesity is not really appreciated in mainstream medicine.
"Gary Taubes has a nice discussion of it in "Good Calories, Bad Calories".
"I'm working on a post about obesity that touches on this; I'll probably post it within a week or so."
THAT was why I read him with enthusiasm about five years ago. He obviously had a fine grasp on physiological detail, and described it well. His photograph revealed a healthy good-looking man.
Not anymore -- on so any levels. :-(
