Ori Hofmekler The Warrior Diet
It's your choice: It's a crash diet and arbitrary "this is good, this is bad" from somebody with no evidence and no qualifications. It's your life and your health.

heard of diet called "shape reclaimed". u take drops ea day in water & there is hormones from sheep in it? Is this.safe? u r on low carb diet also
Safe, ?effective: I spent a fair amount of time exploring their website. I was not able to learn if the hormones come from sheep but since it is homeopathic it would only have trace amounts. But homeopathy is quite safe and the diet looks reasonable. I like that it is administered/supervised by health professionals. No research to show how effective it is but does look safe.

My reading makes me think it is, and that most world malnutrition (africa, china, etc.) is due to evil / stupid social policies. I would pay much more for meat raised humanely.

Unknown: This diet does not have any supporting scientific evidence for helping inflammatory bowel disease (ibd). There's no medical consensus about its safety.

You should discuss with your doctor before starting a child on this diet. ...Read more

Harvard's recent research: "gut flora is key to either gaining or losing weight, pill on the horizon". What food alters bad bacteria into good ones?
Doubtful: Body weight is calories in versus calories out. I could only find articles about obesity and gut bacteria in obscure journals (help me, anyone?) and i suspect this is just one more fake internet story. I bet dimes-to-dollars this "pill" never appears, but until it does, why not head down to the gym and have a really good time working and eating with fitness-focused friends? ...Read more

Eating a diet rich in protein from natural sources, and possibly from supplementation, may speed healing and decrease recovery time. ...Read more
