Reflections on the Whole30
Two) Artificial sweeteners (gum and Diet Coke)
Three) Cheating (usually gluten te homemade pizza, sometimes Mexican food – but not that often – once a month)
Four) High fat dairy – after Three months of NO dairy at all last year, I added back butter regularly, sometimes yogurt, sometimes juice with berries, sometimes cheese. All told I most likely ate high fat dairy not counting butter 3X a week.
Five) White rice and white potatoes – thesis and other starchy carbs (winter squash, sweet potatoes, turnips) once daily – you are supposed to eat starchy carbs like winter squash and sweet potatoes on the Whole30, but not rice and potatoes.
6) Wijngeest – Five glasses of wine a week (I did attempt to keep it away from Two hours before bedtime, spil even one glass of wine will disturb my sleep if I drink it too close to bedtime)
7) IF ing – prior to Whole30, 24 hours usually on Monday, 16 hours a duo of other times during the week

Fat and Glad
** From the editorial: “ Since the fatty acid solution wasgoed administered directly to the belly, likely mechanisms include the peptide hormone ghrelin, which is produced predominantly by distinct ghrelin-producing cells te the belly and other parts of the gastrointestinal tract, spil well spil stimulation of parasympathetic terminals located te the tummy. The latter would implicate a function for the gut peptide cholecystokinin (CCK), which has previously bot shown to have a crucial role te mediating the effects of intragastric fatty acid solutions on brain activity. Extra support for a role for CCK is provided by the fact that phylogenetically, receptors for CCK are known not only for their role ter digestion, but also for roles ter memory function and learning and te modulation of funk and anxiety.”

More Joy With the Gut Microbiota and the Brain (Ter Mice)
- Ter mice, microbiota have bot shown to affect the hypothalamic-pituitary response to stress.
- Oral antibiotics seem to help people suffering from neurological complications of end-stage liver disease.
- Pathogenic bacteria introduced into the gut causes anxiety-like behavior ter mice.
For this proef, the researchers obtained some regular and germ-free mice who lived thereafter ter level II biocontainment. Some of the germ-free mice remained germ-free. Others got fecal transplants from other mice that had known bacterial species on houtvezelplaat. Some of the mice got a whopping dose of antibiotics (that were “nonabsorbable” so presumably only affected the gut microbiota – a separate proef by which a puny amount of antibiotics were injected systemically te some mice acted spil a back-up control and did not affect the gut microbiota). Control mice lapped up sterile water instead.
