  1. I agree to a point, but disagree to the extent that 'hard medical data' is often found to be wrong or lacking or biased by funding etc.
  2. Ah yes, I see your point about the percentage of the population with intolerance. I think it's one of those things that everybody has a differing opinion on. I've heard people say that almost everyone is gluten intolerant to some degree and, like you say, others say it's much much lower. I suppose it's about experimenting for yourself. I have a friend who suffers from IBS but refuses to try and exclude things from his diet (like gluten or dairy) to see if it makes a difference, his mother is celiac. What I did like about the video was the explanation of how the stomach can't break the protein
  3. Doctors are often overrated and the advice they give is often the product of them being at the 'people end' of sales and marketing. Some of the best advice I've had comes from non-doctors, and some of the worst advice I've had from legit doctors. I think you might be a little too fixed on the 'who' is saying this and not so much the 'what' he's saying. If a credible doc said the same thing it would be alright?
  4. I'd be pretty keen to give Yoga a try however am a total noob when it comes to any of it. What would be a good idea for a total beginner?
  5. I really love Biltong, its basically dried beef (its South African). There is a great local company that makes it without nasty additives and it's so so yum. Although it is quite salty.
  6. I have a cup of black coffee with breakfast each morning, half strength though cuse I'm a bit caffeine sensitive. I love it. But I only have the one each day. If I have coffee after mid-day I feel a bit ill.
  7. Am reading The Fry Chronicles by Stephen Fry, I love it
  8. I've read it and enjoyed it, but not sure that I'd advocate for it being as good as everyone says. However I have a friend who is obsessed with it, really obsessed! He had read it six times (it's looking very worn) and puts a lot of the principles in to practice. He's a young businessman who also runs a restaurant; seems like a lot of the stuff is working for him, but really a lot of is is just common sense basics that get overlooked or over complicated when starting out in business. It's an easy and thought provoking book but putting it into practice is another thing.
  9. Currently reading The Night Circus... Awesome!
  10. I quite enjoyed that, I particularly liked the bit about how Target markets to customers.... and the bit about toothpaste and shampoo
