That's what Socrates would say. You're so wise! ha ha.Actually, i know nothing;
Just to be sure; drinking something fiber-less like juice during a fever doesn't count as a burden, does it?Its the same as when you have a fever, due a viral infection.
Your body will not like to eat something, as it does not want to waste any energy on digestion.
(digestion requires a lot of energy)
It wants to direct all energy to fight the enemy (creating radicals to kill the virus),
Ok, and you're talking about the protein-decomposing enzymes that clean up useless or malfunctioning cells (cancer cells).The lower the blood amino acid levels, the more active thsoe enzymes will become
And by keeping the amino acid levels low, you activate them. Okay, got it.
I have a question; is it possible to elevate these enzymes with a supplement?
I'm confused; so you're saying that if you eat low-quality protein from plants, it will NOT keep amino acid levels low (despite the fact that you're ingesting only a little protein) because...the protein is low-quality and thus not useful for (re)construction...and this will affect amino acid levels? (Our goal being to keep them high.)But, if you only eat plant protein (fruit, veggies etc), the protein quality will be low,
so that relatively much of the ingested protein will be worthless,
and not utilized for (re)construction purposes,
so that relatively much amino acids remain in the blood (not good regarding activity of protein-decomposing enzymes)
I'm curious about nuts now. Is the digestion of nut-protein less of a burden on the body (that is fighting a fever, or cancer) than animal protein? It has way more fiber than, say, egg yolk, so it seems like it would be more of a burden.In my opinion it would be more effective to replace the grains by Brazil nuts (with the same amount of protein),
so that the overall protein quality is much higher and less redundant amino acids remain.
