In addition (after some searching) : NTZ isn't registered as a (proven / useful) medicine in the Netherlands. :evil:

Re: Parasite : cryptosporidium parvum/hominis pcr - liver issues

I would not hesitate getting Nitazoxanide treatment, as there is an association between chronic inflammation and colon cancer. Thanks RRM, I also read some of that research ánd that immunocompetent persons didn't get treatment. I don't know why I didn't get any until now, but obviously I'm not that...

Parasite : cryptosporidium parvum/hominis pcr - liver issues

Since March this year I'm suffering from big digestive issues and from December last year my liver enzymes are raised. (ASAT, ALAT en LDH). I got my stool tested in April and it turned out I was infected with the cryptosporidium parvum/hominis parasite. Normally, an immune competent person will have...

Re: 6*200 versus WW : what's best?

So actually, it's even healthy to be skinny? :) I was thinking about the things you said about estrogen and calcium. Yes, estrogen levels are often depressed in female marothon athletes, and yes, estrogen protects you against osteoporosis, but only in the sense that it is protective against an overl...

Re: 6*200 versus WW : what's best?

But these are safe levels, that can never take individual differences into account. RRM, do you know what the minimum is? I've recently watched some documentaries about eating disorders. I don't think I've got one, but they always talk about the dangers of being thin / skinny. Now I wonder, if skin...

Re: 6*200 versus WW : what's best?

RRM, I now weigh 50.1 kg. My weight is steady, I consume a lot of food, eat when hungry and don't restrict calories at all. Most of the days I eat up to 3000 kcal, mostly carbs. You said As long as you have spare fat, your weight is not too low. I really like the way I look and other people say I lo...

Re: 6*200 versus WW : what's best?

Bigger meals come with more fat storage, as glycogen storage and fat storage happens simultaneously. Does fat storage also happen if the food consumed mostly brings sugars and there is also enough space in the glycogen depots? In other words : is there ALWAYS (a bit) fat stored after a meal? if the...

Re: 6*200 versus WW : what's best?

When walking 20 km a day, you need 550 kcal extra (on top of the 6*200) Thanks RRM, that explains why I was having a hard time on trying just 6*200. I now know even better what to do! :) Do I understand correctly it's best to only consume sugars? Or do I also need to eat some fat? My current fat in...

Re: 6*200 versus WW : what's best?

Thanks a lot RRM! It's reassuring to know I CAN get rid of this saddlebags on my own (without surgery or things like that) As long as those saddlebags are still there, there is still plenty of fat to get burned. That's exactly what I thought, even with my weight (low BMI, which indeed isn't telling ...

Re: low hydrochloric acid levels

I used to have the same troubles, like everything was causing big bellies and indigestion. After using probiotics (I made my own kefir) and 1 bottle of commercial probiotics (http://unlimitedhealth.nl/health-force-friendly-force-probiotic-30-v-caps.html?sqr=Probiotica&) AND consuming only one type o...

Re: 6*200 versus WW : what's best?

6*200 is most effective for a low bodyfat percentage Thanks a lot! WW goes well for a short period of time and then it's a true mental struggle for me, so this is good news! The BMI is not that telling I know. Some people think I am skinny, but that's not true when it comes to buttocks / hips. Tech...

6*200 versus WW : what's best?

RRM, I've been reading all the information on your website www.topfitafter50.com. Nice guidance, it's very interesting ! I am definitely going to try the exercises you mentioned for women. But I also have a question for weightloss / losing bodyfat. What's the best method for getting real low percent...

Re: Fictors Fasting Adventures

Nice to hear you're doing well! :) Don't you ingest way too much protein right now? I once read the maximum is 2.5 gr per kilo bodyweight for health reasons, but I don't know for sure if that's true (and of course I don't know your stats). Or is it just a test for you in search for your upper limit ...

Re: Fictors Fasting Adventures

That's great! And I know the feeling! Nowadays I eat mixed boiled or steamed vegetables at dinner with avocado and salmon. No issues whatsoever with my skin, only thing is that I don't like all the fibres in my stomach / bowels. But I does feel great to be able to eat "normal" (although it isn't con...
