    Extreme Diet Trends

    My thoughts are more reflective of people who workout regularly and are in good health that can handle a sugar spike from whole grain bread. If you have diabetes, then it’s a whole different story.

    White flour is a pretty recent invention. It actually didn’t exist until the 1870’s in large quantities when companies wanted to start selling processed flour. It didn’t really take off until the 1930’s with companies like Safeway starting having in-store bakeries for the first time. Most people used to grind their own grains before that.

    Fresh ground Flour vs store bought

    I’m curious to see how the Vitamix Grain container will handle small batches. I won’t be making batches as large as yours. The Nutri-Mill is a very impressive Bosch flour grinding gadget. I thought about getting a NutriMill but I never make more than one loaf at a time.

    Fresh ground Flour vs store bought

    The big advantage is better nutrition & taste. Store bought flour has a lot of preservatives added to whole grain flour to max out the shelf life. You’re store bought flours often contain.., Calcium propanoate. Sodium benzoate. Tricalcium phosphate. Butylated hydroxyanisole.

    Switching to fresh ground whole grain bread and ditching white bread would help many people’s diets. There’s actually fiber and Omega 3 in whole grain breads. White flour is just starch and other sugars left. In small portions it’s okay, but not in the amounts many people are consuming.
  6. I just bought the grains container for my Vitamix. I want to make small batches of fresh flour for some breads. I’ve always bought my flours for bread making from stores. This will be my first foray into making my own whole grain flours. Getting a grain mill did not make any sense since I only make a loaf or two at a time. How of many of you are grinding your own fresh flour vs just using store bought flours?

    These are actually legitmate doctors making medical recommendations. These are professionals that know what they’re doing. People have to learn to avoid the fanatics, quacks and scammers out there trying to make a quick buck. There’s a massive amount of Keto supplement scams jumping the Keto bandwagon out there designed to take advantage of people while encouraging “danger zone” behaviours.

    2019 New Kamado Joe III being sold

    I’m not really interested in the Big Joe 3. I’m more curious to see if KJ will offer the Hyperbolic insert as a 3rd party accessory for old Joes.

    Shaving the back pin on the lower band is the other option. This allows you to lower the band by an additional 1/4 inch closing off the gap.

    2019 New Kamado Joe III being sold

    I’m pretty sure the Hyberbolic insert could be purchase for older Joes. I thought the unit was much taller effectively providing more cooking space.

    Restaurants are the real target market for the Big Joe 3. There’s a much smaller market of home users that’ll buy the Big Joe 3 too. The average family of 5-6 doesn’t really need anything bigger than a Big Joe 2. For or my own use, I’d probably buy a Timberline before dropping $4,800 Canadian on a Big Joe 3.

    The best diet isn’t the one that helps you loose 20 lbs in 30-days faster than the next diet. The best diet is the one that helps you reach your goals while keeping a healthy weight thoughout your lifetime. Without military grade discipline, it will be very hard for the average person to sustain the a strict Keto Diet for longer than 5-6 months.

    iKamand Problems

    Is there any updates on the revised iKamand; have the issues people been having been fixed? I’ve been holding off on getting on iKamand until the units are working correctly & have spare probes available.

    Thoughts on the upcoming "DoJoe"

    It can. It’s pretty much the standard. Doesn’t mean you have to like it. I’ll be curious to see if the 14-day estimate from ABT is accurate or people will be waiting longer.

    Thoughts on the upcoming "DoJoe"

    I know. I was making a point the stone has to be factored into the cost too. i wish there was a version without a stone. I have 2 18.5 inch stones already. I’m not sure what I would do with a 3rd BJ stone aside using it for a deflector on low and slows.
