How'd the red kidney beans go down?

I'm a pretty useless RS for AS tester at the moment. I'm on enbrel and LDN. I'm encouraged by your tolerance levels. I wonder if it was your strict NSD or a combination of a lot of things?

This study kind of answers my prior question about our meds masking triggers and potentially exacerbating the permeability of an already leaky gut.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11247894

Seeing as our meds(biologx and nsaids) do nothing to alter gut flora, I don't see why the klebs wouldn't continue to stealthily run rampant, creating further leaks and in turn intolerances, inflammation and a domino effect of auto immune issues. Avoiding inflammation is still WAY better than not but interesting to know.
The opposite effect of Lactobacillus brevis is good to know of too.

All of that being said, I'm still eating 1/3 lb of cooked and cooked and cooled yams and or sweet potatoes. Tried to cook taro but failed miserably. I throw a half cup-1 cup of rice in the mix every once in a while on exercise days but don't go past where I thought I could go pre medicine.

The red kidney beans went down very nicely. I enjoyed them a lot. I made that on Tuesday night, had some leftovers which I ate with rice yesterday (Thursday) for lunch. I ate a decent cup and a half of white rice with it as well both times.

Inflammation has been pretty good this week. I must warn however, I'm still taking my 100 mg of dyclofenac once per day. I do think it has increased inflammation a little bit.

My thoughts are...I will keep taking the dyclofenac for now as often as I need, get some of these foods in me that should feed gut bacteria and in turn strengthen the immune. I'm interested in what Art Ayers articles say about the immune producing TREG (T regulator cells) from the intestines which are cells that basically regulate the killer T cells not to attack the body. So based on that, I'm eating these "clean" and natural starch sources to feed the gut bacteria in the hope of producing a healthier immune full of TREG cells. Yes I think there is more inflammation as a result but its controllable....no its not astronomical like it was in the past.

I have to give that a decent amount of time I feel to see how that works for me. 6 months at least I would think.

In the meantime, I'm having a good time eating those clean starches. Alternating high starch nights (where I eat around 550 grams of Potato or sweet potatoes) with my main meal (that's a LOT, half my plate at least) or half the amount of potatos, and add in some rice instead, and now adding in some kidney beans into Chilli dish. Then typically eat a green banana (or ripe one for that matter if I don't have a green one) with desert.

On my high starch nights I'm pigging out on my coconut cream chocolate ice cream as well for desert and add in a couple of coconut flour choc chip biscuits as well. I'm using the carbs to boost my total calories past 3500 on workout days. Try eating 3500 calories in just meat, eggs, fat and vege. I've tried.....its too hard and doesn't make you feel good whereas I can eat Potatos until I'm ready to burst, and then be ready to eat again in 90 minutes. They digest fast. It stokes up my metabolism which is great on workout nights. Slowly gaining weight. Gone from 84 kgs to 91kgs now over the last 2 months. I'm gaining weight at around .5 to 1 kg per week or 2. Its not fat.

Most of all....I feel great and my strength is increasing each week on the weights.

Oh yeah, this week I have also added in small amounts of full fat natural Yoghurt back into my diet with seemingly no bad effects.

And yesterday I've also switched from Egg White protein powder (eat enough eggs anyhow) to natural unflavored, Whey protein powder. I ate my first lot last night and no problems this morning. I want to switch to Whey because it has a lot of amino acids in it and has Glutamine in it which I read has beneficial effects in a study somewhere for leaky gut. Might have been in this forum actually in one of the recent studies posted up.

Just be cautious when incorporating fermented foods. I recently wrote a post stating the correlation between autoimmune disorders and dysbiosis or bacterial overgrowth. Eating fermented foods can actually release gasses in the small intestine which favour the proliferation of unwanted gut bacteria. Ideally, you should work towards reducing candidiasis and restoring a good healthy microbial balance in the gut. Once this has been accomplished it's essential to reintroduce fermented foods and probiotics.
