New Discoveries Of The Week: Cool New Things I'm Trying, Books I'm Reading, And More!
-What I'm Eating For Every Single Brunch & Dinner This Week
Thorne Mediclear SGS: My company Kion is bringing thousands of followers and fans through a 5 day fast this week, with varying options, from liquid fasting to intermittent fasting, alternate day fasting, fasting mimicking diet and beyond. Me? I'm intermittent fasting every day for 16 hours and then eating two meals comprised of, you guessed it, Thorne Mediclear SGS. This is a low-allergenic rice-and-pea-protein-based supplement that is formulated to support liver and colon detoxification. It contains all essential nutrient cofactors and a complete range of vitamins and minerals in their most absorbable, tissue-ready forms, along with enhanced liver support by adding sulforaphane glucosinolate (SGS) – a natural substance from the seeds and sprouts of select broccoli varietals. SGS provides effective up-regulation of the body's natural phase II detoxification enzymes and is an indirect antioxidant that provides long-lasting cell protection from free-radical damage. It also contains curcumin, green tea, and grape seed extracts in phytosome form for enhanced absorption and optimal delivery to the tissues (phytosomes are specific plant extracts bound to phosphatidylcholine, which greatly increases the absorption and blood levels of the desired botanical constituents). You get the idea. This is the cleanest stuff I could possibly eat all week. Get it here. Kinda tastes like a Wendy's Frost if you blend it with ice and bone broth.
-Shocking New Book I'm Reading
Feeding You Lies: How to Unravel the Food Industry's Playbook and Reclaim Your Health: Author Vani Hari – AKA the “food babe”, despite being quite controversial and often accused of being a fear-mongerer, has really struck a chord with me in this book, particularly in her expose regarding the extreme differences between European processed and packaged food compared to that in the USA. Even though the book is worth reading for that section alone, she also, in other chapters, blows the lid off the lies we've been fed about the food we eat – lies about its nutrient value, effects on our health, label information, and even the very science we base our food choices on. Read it, but prepare to be pissed.
