  1. Standing with the Man on the Silver Mountain

  2. I used to be morbidly obese and am now half the man, literally, that I used to be. Gluten free and low carb works for me but you mileage may vary. It can be done.
  3. Buckwheat is not a grain and has a low glycemic index. Buckwheat refers to plants in two genera of the dicot family Polygonaceae: the Eurasian genus Fagopyrum, and the North American genus Eriogonum. The crop plant, common buckwheat, is Fagopyrum esculentum. Tartary buckwheat (F. tataricum Gaertn...
  4. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  5. I found that I can't take it every night because I quickly build up a tolerance. I have not noticed any ill effects or even become remotely addicted to it. For occaisonal use it works really well.

    Bad Experience With Dr.s?

    To be proactive and take control of your life and health is hard work. Most people prefer to passively let life happen to them because it is the easy way out. I refuse to waste any energy or time on these kinds of people. I have better things to do.

    Bad Experience With Dr.s?

    Because they can't write a prescription for it. No drugs, no kickbacks.

    Bad Experience With Dr.s?

    I have found doctors to be a group of people who are completely incapable of thinking outside of the box. All they are taught to do is write prescriptions and when someone comes along that a prescription won't fix they just stare at you like a deer in the headlights. When it comes to nutrition all...
  9. I only take it when I can't sleep or really need to be rested up for the next day. If I take it every night I seem to build up a tolerance to it. I haven't noticed anything unusual if I wake up during the night.
  10. I take it from time to time and it really works. It doesn't give me that drugged out sleep you get with other sleep aids. Never had any side effects or other problems with it.
  11. I used to have all kinds of sleep problems but after nearly two years I rarely do. Melatonin helps when I can't get to sleep.
  12. Buckwheat and flaxseed are also good. They don't give me a blood sugar spike and are another good thing to eat. Flaxseed also is high in omega 3 fatty acids like salmon. I really notice a difference if I don't eat flaxseed and salmon for a while.
  13. The carb loading really messes me up so I don't do that anymore. My blood sugar spikes and then crashes and I can't recover quickly. I stick with meat, nuts and green veggies. Small amounts of these throughout the day works best for me. Salmon seems to be the best meat when I am riding and I avoid...
  14. Extreme brain fog, almost zombie like. Fatigue Weight gain and I bloat up like a balloon Fortunatley it takes a fair amount of gluten to really knock me out. Very small amounts trigger the same symptoms but I can still function just not at %100 efficiancy.
