Exercises / Metcon

As some of you know, I am always late to the party, so if this has been posted before......my bad.

I have finally found a work out that I really like doing.  No more huge amount of time on the treadmill, or huge amount of time on the recumbent bike.  Now it is 10 minutes on the treadmill doing max effort then doing this work out as many times as I can with a 2 to 3 minute break between complete rounds.

Enjoy!

Workout Programs / Krav Maga
« on: April 21, 2012, 07:58:35 AM »
When we last left (sounds like a daytime soap) there were a couple of the board members who were doing Krav Maga, one I thought was in the STL area.  If they are still around, which club, the one in St. Charles or the one in Fenton do you use and why?

Workout Programs / Book recommendation?

I have a set of free weights now, they top out at 40lbs., but do not have a clue as to what to do with them for how long or how many reps.  A book that explains what the purpose of reps ect.. would be appreciated.

Diet and nutrition / I -so- did not want to read this!

Give it a read and see if it fits for you:
"Gluten Issues or Celiac? Donít Drink Coffee!"

http://www.thehealthyhomeeconomist.com/gluten-issues-or-celiac-dont-drink-coffee/

If you drink coffee and are also gluten sensitive or celiac, you might want to sit down for this one.

One of the most important pieces of information I learned at the recent PaleoFX12 Conference I attended in Austin last month concerned the surprising connection between gluten and coffee which holds ramifications for other autoimmune disorders as well.

The problem has nothing to do with caffeine, so decaf coffee would be included in this discussion.

In a nutshell, fairly recent lab research has revealed that 10% of coffee is a protein that cross reacts with gluten antibodies.

This means that if you are gluten sensitive or celiac and are avoiding gluten containing grains or perhaps have even gone completely grain free, if you still drink coffee there is a strong likelihood that the protein in the coffee is triggering the very same gluten related health problems you are trying to avoid.

In other words, even if you think you are doing fine with your current gluten free diet, it is very possible that skipping the coffee could take your health to the next level.
Symptoms of Gluten Sensitivity

Most people who are gluten sensitive donít realize it because gastrointestinal problems like burping, gas, tummy upset, or toilet issues are the least common way for gluten issues to present themselves!

The most common symptoms of gluten sensitivity?

Migraines and other neurological issues Ė even MS!

Hormone and endocrine problems are another common way for gluten issues to manifest themselves.
How Coffee Triggers Gluten Antibodies

So what exactly happens when a gluten sensitive person eats gluten?

Folks with gluten antibodies react to any gluten in the diet by mounting an immune response.  This means that gluten is perceived by the body as an invader and the gluten antibodies attack the gluten itself trying to destroy it.   This gluten attack is an inflammatory response and inflammation issues can occur anywhere in the body in any tissue or organ.

Hereís the real shocker I came across when researching the coffee/gluten connection:

According to Dr. David Clark DC, a functional neurologist and endocrinologist:

    Thereís not a disease or health condition you can think of that does not have an association Ė in the research literature Ė with gluten sensitivity.

Thatís a very strong statement!

In essence then, if you are gluten sensitive in any way shape or form, and it seems that most people are whether they know it or not given the epidemic levels of autoimmune issues today, gluten antibodies have the potential to react to proteins in other foods as if they are gluten thereby triggering an immune and inflammatory response.

The protein in coffee is the most common cross-reactor to gluten.   Because it is the protein in the coffee that is the trigger, switching to decaf coffee does not solve the problem.

Is it possible to be gluten sensitive and not cross react to coffee?  Yes itís possible but youíll have to do some expensive lab testing with a knowledgeable doctor to find out.

The probability is that you are cross reacting to coffee, so the best approach is just to play it safe and lose those lattes.

Vitamins and Supplements / Vitamin A, Omega 3 and 6 and now 9?
« on: April 08, 2012, 04:59:41 PM »
Greetings all,
    Before I left there was a post, I think in this section, about Vitamin A, and the Omegas 3 and 6.  I can't seem to locate it and would like the 411 on them and now I guess some further information on Omega 9 (?!).  One more question, does it matter from what you get your Omega 6, the bottle that I got says it comes from Red Currants.  Please shed some light or if you know of the post, please send me the link.

Thanks,
Bee
