The timing tweak that ELIMINATES PAINFUL BELLY BLOAT

The surprising mealtime trick that tames bloat-triggering gas and GI upset: Eat your side salad after your entree. The raw vegetables supply fiber and digestion-enhancing enzymes that help your body break down the food in your stomach more efficiently. Also smart: dressing your salad with oil and vinegar. Research has shown olive oil boosts nutrient intake while vinegar helps break down protein and slow carb absorption. The result? No gas, pain, or belly bloat.

    How does eating salad after entre fit with long held ubiquitous idea of eating lighter foods first during meal so that their digestion isn’t held up waiting for more digestively complex foods to complete? Thus all meal components stay timely in passing through areas of digestion. Newer science? How can we beter understand these food interfaces as active “participants”? I’ve followed your work since discovered during the 80’s. During “low fat craze” embraced by traditional at all levels of medicine and government guidance, *your* books introduced me to idea of utilizing healthy fats; were my introduction to sorting among fats and looking at functional roles for whole nutrition. Changed my life. Thank you.

The simple way to MELT FAT FAST

Ever wish there were a vitamin you could take to erase stubborn fat? Good news: Conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), dubbed the “liposuction nutrient”, has been found to slow production of lipase, an enzyme that tells the body to store fat.
