I know that there are much more knowledgeable people than I, so I come bearing a question. I eat only Natural Peanut Butter with an ingredient list of peanuts or peanuts and salt. Of course, there is oil on top of the peanut butter when I first open it. Typically I pour the oil off as it is less runny that way. How does this change the nutritional make up of the peanut butter? Also, how would I go about entering it into an app/website such as cronometer. Thanks!
I will try to make this as short as to the point as possible... I have recently come to the realization that I absolutely need to start writing a **journal of what I eat**, In order to at least have a chance to find out what **foods are giving me problems** (autoimmune disease). But I want to also be able to **keep track of some additional parameters** and data (numbers) that I'd collect (pH and personal assessment of the activity of X and Y). These parameters should be displayed in some sort of graph on a timeline (ideally). Perhaps some other way. At this point I'm not really sure.
So as healthcare professionals you may know of some application that is capable of doing that? If not, I'm open to any kind of advice and am available for follow ups questions etc. God bless you.
Up until December of 2017, eggs (cooked in a variety of ways), had been a consistent part of my diet. I had developed a case of gastritis and upon following doctors instructions and healing, I noticed almost immediately that every time I eat eggs (except with omelettes in restaurants?), it gives me terrible heartburn which lasts for several hours. Has anyone else had an experience similar to this, and if so, did it ever improve?
ALSO: Contrary to what the mods of this sub may think, I’m not deferring to internet strangers to address my health problems (as I mentioned that the gastritis has been resolved under the care of a physician). I don’t have any condition in which I have constant heartburn; I ONLY have it when I eat eggs. I’m simply asking if anyone else has had a similar experience and if they used certain cooking techniques/if it ever went away for them.

Just like a smoker, when there is downtime most of the time I have to be slowly chewing on something. I also just want to be able to feel full later, especially between the hours of 5 and 9 without resorting to eating garbage food.
What are some healthy alternatives to Casual snacking as well as just simply filling yourself up so you're not ripping open a cookie box at midnight and crying yourself to sleep?
If you came here for motivation, sorry. I need the motivation not giving it. For those of you who have fasted or that fast consistently, how did you get started? How do you not get tired or irritable, etc. from it? What times do you fast? Does it matter? Does it matter what you eat when you’re not fasting if you’re eating healthy? In other words, if I want to lose weight and I make a plan to fast and eat healthy, do I even need CICO? I’m new to all of this so thanks for indulging me. I’m trying to lose about 60 pounds or so. Thanks!
I’ve been learning a lot about nutrition and stuff and, if I understand correctly, each vitamin and mineral has a substance or something that helps us absorb that vitamin/mineral. I’ve heard that Vitamin C aids in absorption of Iron. Ive also heard that there are substances that hurt our ability to absorb vitamins/minerals. I’m wondering if there is a list, or something along those lines, somewhere that I could refer to that shows what helps what and what hurts what? Thank you!
Feel free to correct me if anything I’ve said is incorrect, just trying to learn :)
