Thanks Dr. Jeff and likely I do... or did have some liver issues (used to drink a LOT of booze).... I quit drinking 4 years ago have been taking milk thistle for a few months now... and previously.. have performed 15 of the Clarke liver flushes.....
Interestingly... I recently spent some time with a couple of type1 diabetics. They are also vegan... their breakfast was oatmeal over tossed greens.. topped with avocado or walnuts and some flax.
I asked them about the fat and they said the very same thing... it seems to "flatten" the insulin response curve.
For lunch and dinner they stick with whole intact grains, legumes, seeds and sometimes root vegetables (low GI stuff).
This is where I am headed ... but first... I need to clear my head (see my "planb" post above.
