Starch Selection and Stomach Bloating!

I used to believe that excess water weight meant that I was getting fat.







But now I know better…

Because you can’t lose 8 lbs of body fat in 24 hours. But you can lose 8 pounds of water.

Which is exactly what I did yesterday after I woke up with a load of excess H20 around my gut.

I lost the weight quickly, because that big belly that sprung out of nowhere was really an illusion.

And I knew I could make it disappear just as fast as it showed up, after taking a few simple steps..

Step one was getting back on my probiotic, because I’d slacked off….

So the bad bacteria in my gut had taken over and were obviously kicking butt over the good guys….

So the good guys needed some reinforcements.

But, those beneficial bacteria weren’t going to win this war unless I got this next part right…

Starch selection.

Because if you pick the wrong starch when you backload your carbs you’re going to wind up looking pregnant too…

And if you take this to the extreme and chronically eat a starch you’re intolerant too, you’re going to look like you’re carrying a set of twins.

So it’s important you get this right.

The best starches for humans are fruit based…









Because fruit was designed by nature to be eaten because this is how the fruit plant spreads its seeds…

So starch from fruits like bananas and plantains are well tolerated by most people.

Problem is, if you rely on fruit starch too much, your diet is going to be very limited, so you’re going to fall off the wagon eventually.

So the key to this problem, is to find some common starches that your system handles well, so you don’t bloat up like a water balloon every time you eat.

It’s very unlikely that wheat starch, or conventional flour fits this bill…

So if you’re still doing wheat, go off it for a week, then watch in amazement as you pee out a gallon or two of water.

Once you’ve done this, its time to start shopping for a carb source that your body deals with efficiently.

Next to fruit, the most likely choice is going to be white rice, so I suggest you test this out first.









But before you start testing make you’ve earned the right to eat carbs…

Because if you’re not burning them off or storing them in your muscles as fast as you’re eating them, you’re going to grow a Real belly made from Real fat.

And this one won’t be so easy to lose.

The best way to test them out is to eat very clean paleo meals all day long, low in carbohydrates…

Then when you eat dinner, backload one starch only, then closely inspect your belly when you wake up the next morning.

If you don’t bloat up, you can put that starch on your safe list. The next night, test another starch in the same fashion, and so on.


On day one, eat meat and fruit until dinner time.

When dinner rolls around, eat the same foods, but add a portion of white rice to your plate.

If you get hungry again, you can still eat, just stay with these foods until you go to bed, because eating another item may cause a false positive.

That’s all you need to do to figure this out.

Ideally, you’ll find three starch sources that you tolerate well, so you can cycle them.

Cycling is a good idea in this situation, because if you eat the same food, day in and day out, you’re likely to develop a new intolerance to that starch as well.

So make sure you don’t get stuck on one single starch source.

Here’s a list of starches I suggest you test first….







  • Plantains
  • Bananas
  • White Rice
  • Sweet Potatoes
  • White Potatoes

When testing this last one, keep in mind that there are two highly specialized fungi that infect white potatoes – Aspergillus and Fusarium.

So when you eat potato, these mold biotoxins may hit you hard if your immune system isn’t prepared to deal with them.

One clue that you’re not dealing effectively is weight gain and the inability to lose it, despite dieting and hard exercise.

And if the weight gain comes with a side of fatigue or brain fog, there’s a good chance you have a problem with one or both of these mycotoxins.











So when you test white potato, keep an extra close watch on the bloat factor, your energy levels and your mental state the next morning.

Many of you will have no problems at all with potato starch, but a few of you will get killed by it, and I happen to fall into that camp.

As a matter of fact, I ate two cups of potatoes the night before my bloating event, so I either have problem with the starch, the mycotoxins, or both.

Of course, I already knew this, but everyone falls off the wagon every once in a while.


If you’re one of my newer followers, you’re probably wondering why I started backloading in the first place…

I explain everything right here.

Normal testosterone levels

Dr. Richard Cohen MD









Guest post by Dr. Richard Cohen

Do you have normal testosterone levels?

Over the last 50 years, the U.S. government and corporate establishment have vigorously promoted a low-fat, high-carbohydrate diet, and unlimited amounts of aerobic activity as being healthy (they are not).

Little to no consideration has been given to stopping the flow of not only toxic foods but the poisonous, industrial by-products polluting the environment. As a result, normal testosterone levels have deteriorated at an alarming pace.

Consider the following:

  • Normal testosterone levels are 25% lower than they were 20 years ago.
  • The average male estrogen level is 40% higher than it was 20 years ago.
  • Rates of male infertility are skyrocketing, and expected to double during the next decade.
  • Depression, immune dysfunction, gastrointestinal disease, and cancer rates are all rising.
  • Diabesity (obesity + diabetes) affects more than one billion people worldwide, including 100 million Americans and 50% of all Americans over the age of 65.

Statistics indicate that 4 out of every 10 deaths in the U.S. can be attributed to heart disease; the number is projected to double within the next 50 years.

While conventional medicine wants you to believe that all of these diseases are unrelated conditions—which is a work of fiction created by the pharmaceutical industry (and perpetuated by the medical establishment) to sell more drugs—the truth is that they all share a common origin: our modern lifestyle.

Poor dietary choices and resulting nutrient deficiencies, stress, lack of sleep, too little or too much exercise, exposure to toxic chemicals, and the use of medications, both prescription and over the counter, have all played a direct role in the downfall of our health and hormones.

And declines in normal testosterone levels have been overlooked.

Our disease-oriented, pharmaceutical-driven medical system only recognizes and provides restorative therapies for the one percent of men who suffer from hypogonadism—extremely low levels of testosterone.

And since there are no pharmaceutical options for the millions of men suffering from mild to moderate reductions in testosterone and/or elevated levels of estradiol, they are not offered any restorative treatment.

Even if your doctor was on board with offering a treatment, his or her testosterone replacement plan is, at best, a Band-Aid. Because it is an artificial intervention, and conventional testosterone replacement therapies are not effective.

They do nothing to address any underlying, physiological imbalances; their sole purpose is simply to mask symptoms. They are not easily utilized by the body, which will eventually become resistant to their intended effects over time.

Those who use conventional testosterone replacements are subject to the inevitable side effects—the body becomes susceptible to more and bigger imbalances and it becomes completely incapable of producing its own supply of testosterone.

And this often leads to irreversible testicular atrophy.

Before you decide to restore normal testosterone levels with testosterone replacement, ask yourself: “Do I really want to rely on artificial hormones for the rest of my life?”

If not, it’s time for you to take charge of your own hormonal health.

And you are in the driver’s seat!

Leave the disease and medications to those who are less educated (including your doctor) and opt for the common-sense alternative—a 100% natural, scientifically-proven step-by-step program that will take you far beyond the superficial management of your symptoms.

The first step?

Determine if lack of normal testosterone is at the core of your problems by taking a simple saliva testosterone test to find out where you stand.

Thyroid and Testosterone Levels.











Hi Mark,

I’ve been treating my thyroid and testosterone levels using the iodine testicle painting.

Since starting I’m no longer falling asleep in the evening, my moods and energy are up and I have a much higher libido which I believe is due to increased testosterone levels.

I responded like this the first day I started, so I was surely iodine depleted.

But I have a question…

My left testicle, which is the bigger of the two, has a slight fullness to it shortly after I paint.

It’s not a pain, but more of a feeling of heaviness.

Is this a normal symptom?

Kevin R.

Thyroid and Testosterone Levels – My response.

Hi Kevin,

A heavy feeling is a normal symptom but you can relieve this fullness easily…

Simply masturbate. (I bet you never thought you’d hear those words coming out of my mouth).

Because an ejaculation will eliminate that heavy feeling in your testicles as soon as you climax and release some sperm.

I prefer to keep this vibe around myself, but feel free to release if you want because you’ve got the libido to back up those extra ejaculations now….

And I bet it feels good, doesn’t it?

And just so you know, this heavy feeling is one of the most common symptoms of this testosterone levels treatment protocol…

Especially in Responders like you who start noticing the benefits from day one.

I believe this happens because your testicles are one of a few organs that uptake iodine directly, so it moves quickly into your testes soon after you paint.

And this influx of iodine sets off a chain of testicular events, one of which is increased sperm synthesis, thus the full, heavy feeling.

That’s my theory at least, but I’m pretty sure I’m right about this.

But lets also discuss your increased energy…

Because this is another positive side effect iodine painters need to be aware of, and the following info will demonstrate this perfectly…

Goiter is a condition where the neck or larynx swells up due to enlargement of the thyroid gland and over 90 percent of all cases of goiter are caused by iodine deficiency.

Now, I’m not sure where you live Kevin, but a huge portion of the United States is known as the Goiter Belt as the map below demonstrates….








                                                                             (click to enlarge)

Red colored states have very little iodine in the soil and water and maroon colored states are even worse so these areas are hit especially hard by this condition.

As a matter of fact, prior to the 1920’s before they started adding iodine to table salt, almost half the population in Michigan suffered from thyroid goiters.

Now there’s a staggering statistic for you.

(Note the swollen thyroid in the pic below to see what goiters looks like).









Iodine deficiency is still extremely common is the green states, but if you live in one of the reds, you need to be hyper aware of this situation.

So if you are a red Kevin, this would explain your iodine depleted state and your extremely rapid response to the painting…

Especially if you consume a lot of locally grown food, that was not grown in soil highlighted in green on the goiter belt map.

And remember, one of the most obvious symptoms of iodine deficiency is fatigue, lack of energy and difficulty staying awake in the evenings.

So your instant boost in energy indicates that your body was sorely lacking in iodine the day you started painting.

But let not forget about your third positive side effect – since increased libido is what most of us around here are interested in getting more of.

I’ve recently added another piece to this puzzle since I did my initial round of research, and it’s a whopper…

You see, people with low iodine levels are more likely to develop cancer of the reproductive organs – cancers that are driven by excess estrogen production.

And when iodine levels fall too low, your body releases a hormone called gonadotrophin in an attempt to get the thyroid going again.

And the hormone that signals your body to produce gonadotrophin is ESTROGEN.

So a positive feedback loop occurs where both gonadotrophin and estrogen go up when iodine levels get too low in your system.

But once you fix your iodine depleted state, estrogen levels decline quickly.

So this painting protocol not only increases testosterone, but it also decreases estrogen if you were iodine depleted to begin with, which many of us are.

And remember….

The estrogen it brings down is estradiol (E2), the type that causes more testicular atrophy in humans than anything else out there.

This may also contribute to the heavy feeling you experience, because once E2 levels go down, your testicles will begin to grow almost immediately, and I’m talking within a matter of hours.

So there you go Kevin…

Thanks for your question, and keep up the good work.

The arteries that supply blood to your package are much narrower than those that feed your heart.

So even slight shrinkage can have a serious impact on your ability to achieve an erection.

But surprisingly, this shrinkage or arterial blockage isn’t always the problem.

It could actually be endothelial lining dysfunction or a malfunction of your endothelial tissue, that thin teflon like coating inside your blood vessels that prevents clotting, among other things…

One of these other things is the dilation of your blood vessels – which should happen every time you become aroused.

And it’s this dilation that allows blood to flow freely, which brings on the hard wood.

So if you’re having problems in this area…

Even though your cholesterol levels are fine, you should take a look the function of your endothelial lining…

Diabetes, metabolic syndrome, high blood pressure, water retention and sleep apnea are clues that this may be your problem.

Either way, it’s important that you treat this at the source….

Because a pill hasn’t been made yet that will fix this on an organic level.

Sure, you can pop something that will blunt the symptoms, but it won’t heal your body at the cellular level.

And cellular healing is the only healing that counts.


Rick Cohen has written two comprehensive ebooks that will show you how to repair your endothelial lining…

When you get your hormones tested, you get a copy of both.

Fetish And the Female Orgasm













(Photo credit – Grendelkhan)

A fetish is a weird thing if you think about it….

But that doesn’t mean you should suppress yours and lock it away in the closet…

As a matter of fact, it can actually be used as a tool to rev up hormone production.

And you should use this tool, as long as your particular thing isn’t destructive to
yourself or others…

Because a fetish is just a mental connection you’ve made with something unusual.

Behavioral scientists call this imprinting.

So say the first set of breasts you really noticed were residing on your 7th grade math teacher…

And she wore tight sweaters, glasses and her hair up in a bun.

So this particular look became linked with those breasts you were so attracted to as a post pubescent boy.

And every time you see this look, it lights you up.

It’s these early connections made right around puberty that stay with you for your
entire life.

It’s a human thing, and something you should never be ashamed of.

As a matter of fact, you should embrace it….

And you should also take the time to find out what your partners thing is…

Because you can work this angle together to keep the hormonal fires burning

Here’s a hint for you….

Women often have exhibitionist fantasies, so they like to be looked at and admired…

Men on the other hand are voyeurs, so they like to do the looking.

A study done in Sweden found that couples who scratched this itched were much
more active in the bedroom.

But you need to make a conscious decision to get it going…

Because this dance happens naturally in young people who are actively shopping their reproductive potential….

But seasoned couples need to work to keep these things alive.  And just as important, always have a plan to act on them sometime in the future.

If the two of you have been in a rut in the bedroom, this will break you out quickly….

It will also make that elusive female orgasm we discussed a while back much easier to find.

Testosterone and Iodine

This testosterone and iodine email came in last week….

Hi Mark,

I received my blood test after using the iodine painting program
for 3 months.

My Total Testosterone went from 489 to 683. I am working
now to get it over 800.

Needless to say that my Naturopathic doctor was amazed on
how the painting program worked.

Thank you,

There are a few things in Roger’s email that stood out to me.

-He’s committed, because he painted for 3 solid months.

-He’s closely monitoring his progress, which is always a good idea.

-And most importantly, he has the goal of reaching 800 in total testosterone.

So he’s bound to win.

Because well made plans that are actually Executed cause wins like these
to happen.

Here’s how it works…

You make the decision, take action, tweak when necessary, and stay with it
through the highs and lows.

Any man who does this will start seeing a lot more wins in his life.

Sure, there will be road blocks, and a bad day here and there…

But the good days will out number the bad days by a lounge shot.

There’s no doubt in my mind that Roger is going to hit that magic
800 number…

Because he’s following a formula that Always works…

Smart Decision Making – Action – Adjustment – Commitment.

You could call this concoction Formula 800. And it works every time.

The feast or famine pattern of our ancestors is gone…

And it’s been replaced with 24 hour drive through and a
refrigerator constantly stocked with food…

So most of us are operating in feast mode all the time.

Problem with this plan is, muscle sugar is supposed to be
burned before you sit down to your next meal…

Before the advent of McDonalds and Maytag this happened

You fasted, often for extended periods of time, then you got
up and worked for your food.

Your muscles were depleted of glycogen during this process,
so you were ready the feast….

Because you didn’t skip the famine.

A funny thing happened once I finally figured this out….

I experienced a massive increase in energy – especially during
the famine phase.

Mother nature never gets it wrong and this famine-energy thing
is another brilliant example of her perfection…

The energy comes from the human growth hormone your body produces
when food is scarce…

And you can look at this growth hormone as mother natures caffeine

And she sends you this pituitary coffee when you need it the most….

When it’s time to hunt down your next meal.

This elegant system can easily be reproduced and the benefits go
waaaay beyond just energy…

From hormone synthesis, to weight management, to youthful, vibrant

If you’re looking for the fountain of youth…

This is it

If She’s Not Climaxing She’s Not Bonding With You

If She’s Not Climaxing She’s Not Bonding With You

A test result came in from a subscriber last Friday…

His PDF report showed that he had the T levels of a castrated

And the estrogen reading of a woman.

So we had a chat.

It turns out he’d gone through two very stressful events in 5 short

  • He moved after his wife threw him out of the house.
  • Then he signed the divorce papers she served him later.

This put an end to the marriage with the woman he’d loved
for the last 11 years.

It also sent his stress levels into the stratosphere. Which explains
why his test results were so horrific.

Because stress drives up cortisol…

And cortisol causes T levels to go down – which leaves the door
wide open for estrogen to come in.

That’s explains why it’s important that you Always keep stress
levels in check.

Because stress is a lethal man killer.

Sadly, our guy learned too late that there’s something he could
have done to keep the love alive.

A technique that would put an entire room full of marriage councilors
to shame.

It’s called the female orgasm.

You see, an orgasm does some very special things to a woman.

And every single one of them is good.

For example, during the climax her body produces a huge surge
of oxytocin – AKA the love hormone…

That powerful agent that dramatically increases feelings of love,
empathy and attachment.

And this hormone explains why she’s happy as a clam when you’re
taking care of business and not so happy when you’re not.

Because if she’s not climaxing, she’s not bonding with you.


You’re displaying too much beta behavior and which is never
a good idea anyway.

But if she is brought to climax a few times times a week….

She’ll bond with you for the rest of her life.


If you could use some help with the climax part you’ll find it

Risk Reward Hormonal Response

My wife has been in New Zealand since last Thursday…

So I’ve been living the life of a bachelor for the last 7 days

And while I certainly do miss the sight of her pretty face.

I haven’t missed the bedroom action at all because we’ve
taken steps to keep the action alive.

We’re just using our minds instead of our bodies during this

Because we both know what happens when you stop the
mating behavior…

You dry up. Lose the horn factor. And your hormones.

But this mental game we’ve been playing has kept all these
hormones intact…

Because it’s novel, and dopamine loves shiny new things.

Especially if they’re slightly risky.

And dopamine spikes like these are very good things to have.

Because when dopamine rises, your T levels rise too…

And your stress hormones will always go down when this shift

This is the risk-reward hormonal response that happens anytime
you court a female…

Even if you already own the prize.

Because there’s always something unique and novel you can
do to light yourself up.

Something you can compete for. Something she may give you.
Or may not.

And remember…

Nothing will fire your testicles up faster than a little competition for
female attention…

Because your boys Love to compete. And they will Always rise to
the challenge when confronted with this task.

Your genes that have competed successfully for breeding rights for
thousands of years guarantee this will happen.

As a matter of fact, you wouldn’t be here now if your ancestors had
not gifted you some world class stuff….

Of the reproductive variety.

Never forget, you have this potency built right inside you.

So I suggest you use it every chance you get because your
masculinity depends on it.


My wife gets home in 4 days. Before she left I put a naughty
book in her bag….

Told her read it on the plane. Secretly pull in out in public

This has kept her dopamine fired up the entire trip…

Because I also mentioned I’d already read the book…

And there was something in there I was going to do to her
when she got home.

She’s been making guesses via text, but still hasn’t gotten it right.

This has been good from a dopamine perspective because we’re
deeply involved in an active courtship ritual…

I’m the alpha male. She’s the coy female. And I’m zeroing in on
the prize.

This is the stuff your hormones were made for…

One on one engagement with a real woman. A woman you
can compete for…

Even if that competition only happens in your mind.

Rectal DHEA

The best way to apply DHEA is into the rectum.

I recently learned about this new application method and I’m
pretty excited it.

Because it puts DHEA back on the table.

And this could be a big game changer for men over the age
of 30.


If you haven’t hit 30 yet. You should pass on this because
your DHEA levels are probably fine.

But us older guys with low levels may have have another
tool to play around with here.

We just have to make sure we get it right.

Up until now I’ve been afraid to mess with DHEA…

Because oral supplements can cause all kinds of problems.

But rectal dosing solves these issues. IF……. your DHEA
levels are low to begin with.

So how do you find out if they are?

The best way is to get a DHEA test and I highly suggest you
do this.

Mercola recommends blood testing, but I believe saliva is much

So go that route if you have the option (my opinion).

I didn’t get tested myself but I’m the guinea pig of this group,
so it’s my job to do these things.

Here’s how I verified that I really needed it…

I payed attention to my sleep cycles on the days I dosed.

And when I started sleeping like a newborn baby at night I
knew I was on the right track.

My moods were also better when I woke up. And I definitely
had more sex drive and stronger erections.

On the other hand…

If the quality of my sleep had declined….

I didn’t feel better when I woke up. And I didn’t have more
sex drive and stronger erections…

The experiment would have stopped.

So keep these points in mind if you decide to try this.

I can’t recommend dosages but I will tell you what worked
for me….

One pump applied rectally. Once a week.

Yup, I’m cycling this just like I do almost everything else.


Because I don’t want to become dependent on this cream.

I want to use it intelligently to enhance my life. Without paying
any penalties.

So I dose up once a week for a very nice hormonal kick.

Then I put it away for 7 days.

One final thing…

Men produce that vast majority of their DHEA in the morning…

So I suggest you apply the cream as soon as you wake up.

Getting it where it belongs takes a bit of practice…

But any spillage can just be rubbed into the surrounding skin.

This excess will be absorbed transdermally, so don’t stress
too much about it.

Here’s the product I’m using.

If you do this, make sure you play it smart.
