Protein + Glucose #1

Meat by itself drops blood sugar. Ditto eggs.
According to Ray Peat (Dec. 18, 2012) …
“Eating protein by itself can cause a big surge of cortisol. Preceding the protein with some carbohydrate makes the protein go farther, otherwise under the influence of cortisol a lot of protein is used just for energy.”
Elmer Verner McCollum (The Newer Knowledge of Nutrition: The Use of Food for the Preservation of Vitality and Health, 1922) wrote …

“The idea made popular by Metchnikoff, that the body is injured by absorption of toxic substances formed in the intestine through the agency of putrefactive bacteria, rests upon evidence which can hardly be doubted. The beneficial effects resulting from taking a liberal milk diet, especially milk which has been soured by the bacillus acidophilus, are attested by a great many people. A very striking illustration of the manner in which a diet consisting largely of animal tissues modifies the bacterial flora of the intestine, and influences the physical and psychical condition of animals, is given by Herter and Kendall. These investigators restricted monkeys to a diet of eggs, and cats to a diet of meat for one or two weeks. They then shifted suddenly to a diet of milk and glucose. Previous studies had shown that eggs or meat encourage the growth of putrefactive organisms in the alimentary tract, whereas milk and glucose stimulates the growth of fermentative and lactic acid-forming organisms, just as does a diet consisting solely of carbohydrates. After one or two weeks on the milk and glucose diet, the animals were returned to the eggs or meat, respectively. These intervals were found sufficiently long to change entirely the character of the bacterial flora if the intestine.

“As the proteolytic or putrefying type of bacteria began to predominate, which occurred promptly after restricting the monkeys to eggs, the animals became sleepy and rested their heads upon their hands in a bowed position. They were stupid and responded slowly to external stimuli, took their food very deliberately and manifested little interest in their surroundings. Not infrequently after a hearty meal the animals would spend much time trying to bite the woodwork of the cage. The urine voided was of small volume and highly colored, and amounted to approximately half that produced from the milk-carbohydrate diet. As the protein-digesting bacteria became established, in the intestine the amount of products of putrefaction which appeared in the urine increased markedly.”

    Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Tip #2 — Viruses are history at 50% relative humidity. Stay home if possible so you can either induct water vapor or lower the temperature. (Any temp below 56° Fahrenheit is counterproductive.)
