yup, been drinking almond for years, no gut issues at all and its very yummy! especially with oatmeal If you’re a heavy dairy milk drinker, you might not like it at first but after a week or so you get use to it.
All plant milks are heavy processed foods and by definition very unhealthy. Do as you wish but personally I would let drink plant milk ONLY my worst enemies lol
Plant milk is not necessarily heavily processed. There are some local farms that make it along with tofu.
Hey Jensen… yes, I take even on low carb meals… I think Matt Kaeberlein mentioned there could be more benefit then just preventing glucose spikes from carbs. Not enough research yet. So, I take on all meals.
I think it makes sense to take with all meals, unless you’re literally just chugging olive oil. People have the misconception that Acarbose is just an alpha-glucosidase inhibitor, but it also inhibits pancreatic production of alpha-amylase, and we know even small amounts of resistant starches in food improve health. Most real meals have some amount of starch in them, so I think it is worthwhile.
I’ve been on it for about 3-4 months and have lost 2 pounds. Like you, not trying to do so. And now that I think about it, it seems I am cinching my belt one hole tighter.
I am just finishing (as a subject) the year-long PEARL clinical trial using Rapamycin, where one of the principal endpoints is visceral fat, as measured in a DXA scan. I have seen a 30% drop in total-body visceral fat, from about 3.3 lb to 2.3 lb. I haven’t noticed a reduction in waist circumference, but visceral fat is deep within your body, around stomach, liver and intestines (and having less of it is definitely better).
How frequently do you exercise?
During the last 6 months when I’ve seen most of this drop in visceral fat, my exercise has been very limited, due to an arm injury and the pressures of running a business. I do manage a small number (~50) squats per day while doing other things, and I’ve been getting out for a walk or hike at best once a week.
I have been taking acarbose for a year. There is no weight loss for me. I also have been taking rapamycin for pprox, 3 years now
Nice to know. Just started Acarbose. With Rapa my weight is stable and the same for years, but no matter how much I eat I have difficulty gaining weight.
Could you please pass that problem on to me
Many doctors and scientist are fond of debunking the association with genetics. My lifetime of observation tell me different. I was skinny as a child and have never had a problem losing weight if I overendulged for sometime. Yes, diets have a huge effect, but IMO it is also true that gentics plays a big factor in how hard it is to gain or lose weight. We all have some problem areas.
