    With a quite some time in sports and guiding sportspeople, perhaps I can give you a few pointers. If you are on daily support move, with your body, all you need are divers fresh foods. Vegetables, poultry, meat, fish, potatoes, rice and pasta. Water, buttermilk, walnuts and honey. Moderate you can take tea and coffee, delete all kinds of cokes and 7 ups and stay away of the red bull stuff. Start use olive oil for baking. See to it you eat in variety and all you need you will get out of your food. Be moderate with alcohol, every day a glass or two of red wine while eating and delete butter products as well as the cookies and cereals, and you'll be just fine.

    When in severe sports mode, your body wants more. In that case before you start take pasta, water and your body will ask for sweets and salt. So while exercise use water with syrup, any taste will do, some salt and if you need extra sweets, honey. If you still think you need some extra, use dextrose tablets during exercise and you'll just be fine.

    Water and the 2 liters fairies tale
    Water is healthy. Drinking liters a day useless. What one basically does is flushing vital vitamins, iron, salts out of the body and many suddenly may experience fatigue because of lack off. What it also does is put a constant strain on kidney and bladder so it really isn't healthful at all. Listen to your body. If it say, thirsty, drink. If it says hungry, eat some. It is very healthy to eat during training small bits in stead of at once eat a bunch. You can use all kinds of snacks to do that. Combine vegetables like carrot and broccoli parts since they contain a lot of fiber, water and other healthy substances.

    Basically here you have it. You can grow old and healthy on this basically.

    It's an interesting topic. I take something if I feel it benefits me -but then it could just be placebo or other factors. e.g. I'm doing something for my health, so I feel better (but I'm also eating better, getting more rest and exercise while taking the supplement regime). So, I'm not fully convinced, but I'll still take a multi if I feel rundown - it's probably because of the iron in it that I feel better over anything else in there. Who knows. They used to tell people to take glucosamine for joints, now they are saying it doesn't do anything. It's constantly changing, so I guess do what you think is best for you - and your wallet.

    Straight answer: We take Supplements because we do not eat healthy with a wide variety of nutrients found in our food baskets. The drawback of Vitaminizing oneself: pills dependency to the Core: beware. If your system doesn't metabolize the elements in the food: you weaken yourself. You have been warned!

    I know that you are supposed to get everything you need from your diet. But in today's world we are all guilty of 'eating on the run', not eating properly etc. etc. and a good multi vitamin and mineral supplement together with omega 3 and hydrolysed gelatin (for my bones) works really well for me!

    #8 In that context, of course. I wonder what we would see if we look at the same time frame.

    Sugar is everywhere. Even ketchup is about 25% sugar. I've seen items advertised as sugar-free but that contain glucose. I guess no sucrose means no sugar from a legal standpoint.

    There's a huge sugar lobby. The latest thing is that fructose is somehow dangerous. Maybe it is to the sugar-producers' bottom line. But, seriously, fruits are dangerous now?

    Mind you, it does hurt to get hit in the head with an apple.

    I see no harm in taking multi-vitamins and the like. Worst case scenario is that you'll make expensive urine.

    Protein supplements are another story altogether. We already eat too much. Save the protein supplements for endurance athletes. They're the only ones that really need them (unless prescribed by a doctor) My biggest issue with those is the high calorie count. Obesity is a killer.

    I'll bet that sugar has killed more people than tobacco

    Hmmm :-) If you eat correctly with a balance diet you will get what your body needs. The protein shakes etc frenzy is borderline dangerous, high protein diet are not necessarily kidney friendly for example ...the fact that many of those companies claim no explicit benefits in an widely unregulated area is just a loophole that helps them to get away with it. Now the US example where the population is widely over medicalized is not a benchmark I am willing to subscribe to either :-) Punctually and under a doc supervision why not as a routine NO !!!!

    #32 @Claire L Cardwell yeah...and the other thing (of course) is that designing, constructing, and accessorizing one's cat (mine anyway) with a proper aesthetically pleasing, yet functional tin foil hat (each ear encased in symmetrical antennae compartments, etc.) is something that I find to be every bit as challenging as successful cerebrovascular microsurgery on a leaking vessel in the pia mater of a small rodent.

    @Gerald Hecht - I also have prolonged absences from Social Media, this year for example I think I have been offline for 4 or even 5 months. Only checking in to pick up messages. I also do not have a smart phone. All that tweeting and twatting every time someone farted on facebook would drive me insane.

    I severely limit the time I spend on Social Media normally to an hour to two hours in the morning and a bit in the evening/late afternoon. Mostly to promote myself and my business. Otherwise I would never get anything done work wise or paint or anything. My ways of keeping stress at bay is to paint, go for long walks, meditate and dance like a loon around the kitchen for an hour every morning with rave music pouring out of my rather inadequate speakers.

    I often think that I would be very happy on my own (with my kitties of course) on top of a mountain and that if I never heard/saw another human being again I would be content....

For however long it takes to have the "Forrest Gump thingie" (you know the one where he was running for a few years and then he stopped)...I'm kind of tired...I think I'll go back home now.

    I do however take about 3000mg Omega 3 a day to help the wiring in my brain stay wired. Apparently there are no long term negative effects to what I am taking metabolically wise (that sounds weird!) in terms of liver damage etc. etc.

    Also as Dr Z is English he has a very conservative approach to doling out pills. He doesn't over-medicate unlike some other doctors I have heard about.....

    I'm thrilled to have you buzzing around again, @Claire L Cardwell

    My particular nuttiness is being certain DIY-healthcare is the only way I can make it through alive.

    We are excellent at the mechanical aspects like surgery, but horrific when it comes to the systems approach, as we pray at the alter of the double-blind trial. The method has some usefulness, but it is also a fatal flaw of our approach to chronic conditions. We are testing the remedies by looking at a very, very narrow slice of our bodies.

    Therefore, we shouldn't be surprised when the pill wreaks havoc in all sorts of other metabolic systems.

    Keep taking a curiously active approach, always seeking information and answers, as the only person with a holistic knowledge of what is going on is you.

    My best advice for you is that a medical journal might be a life-saving record....

    @Franci๐ŸEugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand Ambassador - I don't believe in a little thing like Bipolar should hold me back from achieving my dreams (or in my case trying to get there) or from really being me. Too many people's entire identity is shaped by their diagnosis. As if being bipolar explained everything about them. They have really intense conversations in cafes about their illness. The first question they ask you is 'what drugs are you on?'. Very irritating!

    It took a couple of years for me to find the right balance re mood stabilisers, but nearly a decade to find the 'big gun pill' that keeps everything all together. The cool thing about the meds I am on now is that they as you say don't stifle my creativity or my emotions into a dead mess. If I am upset about something I can cry (or lose my rag a wee bit). And I don't have to drink 22 cups of coffee a day just to stay awake!

    Thank you @Lisa ๐Ÿ Gallagher! I think what really helped me the most was when I went to see my Engineer shortly after I got back to SA to get some plans signed off. He looked at me and said 'where on earth have you been?' Something about the way he looked at me made me tell him the truth without being scared.

    'I was in Ward 2 of Helen Joseph with serious head injuries and was diagnosed with bipolar disorder' I answered.

    He smiled back at me 'Welcome to the Club!' he said 'I also have bipolar disorder and so does one of my daughters.'

    That really gave me heart. You see Callie is very successful and if he didn't let bipolar hold him back, why should I?

    One of the unique qualities of Social Media is that although everyone feels they have the right to speak as an expert, nobody feels a responsibility to read or be aware of what has been published by others who preceded them. It's as if the world is born anew each morning with no history.

    This article is a perfect example of stating something as a fresh "discovery" that has been pointed out by others literally dozens of times before. (Circa 2014 - 2015)

    It is well known that the LI Algorithm looks for trending topicality during the very first few minutes after a piece is published on the long-post platform, and that a burst of interest displayed at that point, showing across not only LI, but other platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, Google+, etc., is what stimulates the Algorithm to push a piece into a rapidly (and geometrical) growth-of-reach, positive feedback spiral.

    About the purported revelations contained here, one can only ask the author, "Duh, where have you been the past three years when dozens of articles were published on LI about this very topic and related subjects?"

Now it's no bread, cake or pasta for at least 6 months before I can have cake for breakfast again! The Skon/scown debate has gone on my my family household for years. There is no right or wrong - it's like e-ther or eyether. However if I did say Scown - I probably would have my clotted cream privileges removed!

    #1 Thanks, @Claire L Cardwell! I know, it did bring back memories for me too. GF seed bread sounds far more sensible. Yeah, I think I did get some cream on my nose actually ;) I don't if I say 'Skon' or 'Scown' I think it's 'Scown' but that's cuz of my American parents - not my fault!! ;0)

    Wow @Sandra Smith - you remind me of how much I miss English Seaside Holidays. Devon and Cornwall are so beautiful. Your images of the Scones made me dive into a large slice of gluten free seed bread with jam - definitely no competition! And nothing without the clotted cream. My family always went for the full fat version, warm raisin studded fluffy scones smothered in butter, then jam (good glue for holding on the cream apparently) then as much cream as you could. If you managed to take your first bite without getting a nose full of cream then you were not doing it right! (I hope you say Skon - not Scowne....)

    Two words - licorice powder - This is the exact brand I use > https://www.banyanbotanicals.com/licorice-powder/

    I refuse to use anything that isn't natural.

    I just pat it on. It works so well, I have never bothered to devise a concoction, like with coconut oil. I sprinkle some across my fingers pat around my cheeks and nose so that all the affected bits are obviously dusted and then go do something for 15/20 before washing it off.

    Not only does it help subside the burning and redness, it seems to shrink the capillaries, as well.

    It tastes sweet, no harm ingesting, but be careful under the nose, as it will burn if you sniff a bit and of course avoid the eyes,

    Great to learn more about you @Sandra Smith. You sound much happier even though it's a very different experience running your own business. I can relate from the other end... my husband does IT/Networking/Telecommunications and more, so needless to say his hours vary, they are unpredictable and as you noted clients can be very demanding with high expectations. So, it doesn't come without it's own set of stressors. Like you, he wouldn't turn back time and work for someone else again. I think once you become the captain of your own ship, it's hard to work for a Company again. It has to be hard with a toddler! Kudos to you.
