I read Barry Sears's book the omega zone for info on fish oil and its anti-inflammatory benfits.Very enlightening but he pushes his superior high potency fish oil too much.He basically says that there is a test to see how much silent inflamation one has and then recomends a certain dosage of fish oil to combat.Claims its the future of medicine....it probably is!!
Now he also writes that if you experience joint pains and other ailments then the inflamation isnt silent anymore.He recomends very high dosage for that.I feel great with 25 fish oil pills a day.I jump everywhere without any pain.
But theres this nut issue I have now.I absolutley love nuts and look foward everyday to my 2 bags of nuts!!Yet.....I can say without a doubt that the nuts inflame my body.And I think its the high omega 6 to 3 ratio since a high omega 3 to 6 reduces inflammation so....
I told the maker of the BB'ing diet about my issue and he said that its good to be inflamed for bodybuilding or I should say a slight inflammation.The body grows better when slightly inflammation is present.Not best for health but great for bodybuilding.There are actually BB'ing products out now that contain as the main ingredient arachidonic acid.This is the taboo stuff Barry Sears says in his book the Zone to steer way clear of as its a strong inflammatory.Yet there it is in a BB'ing product and people are raving about it.
Truth be told Im tired of Trying for the "look" and just wanna reduce my inflammation so I can live pain free!!!
Jim,another thing I have learned from this bb'ing website is about a product that mimics insulin.Its called Vandyl Sulfate and works to lower blood sugar WITHOUT needing insulin(unlike chromium which is just an insulin enhancer).I mention this because I notice you take metformin.While VS is toxic at high doses at low doses it has no side effects and works!!!Cant say that about Metformin!!
My experience with the stuff is pretty good.Ive always had a hard time getting into ketosis and using VS when I feel like my blood sugar is high it levels me out and I feel great afterwards.You could try it when you take your PWO carbs.Or maybe it will help you with your insulin issue after a low carb meal.
