Great raw sound I've come to expect from Xavier.  But the phenomenal guitar solo at end of song leaves me wanting the song to continue for quite some time. So I just listen to it again and again.

How Long Foods Stay In Your Stomach

How long does the process

How long does the process of digestion last? Do you find yourself still hungry no matter how much you eat? If so, you might be eating foods that are too high on the glycemic index. It’s definitely something worth knowing if you’re struggling with excess weight.

The glycemic index is a system of values given to foods according to how quickly they cause an increase in blood glucose levels. To put that in layman’s terms, it basically measures how fast different foods are digested by the body. Glucose is a simple sugar that gives your body energy, and you get it from the foods you eat.

Your blood is what carries this sugar throughout your body to all your hungry cells and tissues. That’s why it’s called blood glucose. If you eat something that’s high on the index, your blood glucose will spike, giving you a fast boost of energy.

TIMESTAMPS:

What glycemic index is 0:58

Foods that digest slowly 3:30

Foods that digest moderately 4:08

Foods that digest quickly 4:34

Foods that don’t have a glycemic index value 5:27

What about pizza? 6:09

Are all low-glycemic foods healthy? 6:43

SUMMARY:

- The glycemic index is a system of values given to foods according to how quickly they cause an increase in blood glucose levels. To put that in layman’s terms, it basically measures how fast different foods are digested by the body.

- If you eat something that’s high on the index, your blood glucose will spike, giving you a fast boost of energy.

- Foods and drinks are actually split into three groups: low, medium, and high. Low items rate from 1 to 55, medium is from 56 to 69, and high items are from 70 and above.

- According to the experts at Bodytomy, some low-glycemic foods, like cooked vegetables or a salad, can remain in your stomach anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour.

- There are also foods that really don’t really have a glycemic index value since they don’t contain any carbs. But they can still take a while to be digested by your stomach. It can take you anywhere from 2 to 5 hours for your stomach to digest meats, like chicken, lamb, and pork.

- If you’re having pizza that’s just dough, cheese, and sauce, that might rate high on the glycemic index, mostly because of that dough. But believe it or not, adding toppings actually makes your slice healthier!

- You might encounter foods that will be low on the index, but if they’re processed, they most likely still contain tons of saturated fats, sugar, and empty calories.

For my digestion, milk and cereal digest fast and potatoes digest slow. It's like the opposite so this lets me know that you have to read your own digestion. Good video

Best way - eat whatever you like, but keep that body moving! Don't just stay at home for long hours. Especially in the summer. Sleeping at open window helps a lot, because it makes your body work on most of the energy you have consumed.

"Have you ever had a gut

"Have you ever had a gut feeling or butterflies in your stomach? Has hunger ever changed your mood? Our bellies and brains are physically and biochemically connected in a number of ways, meaning the state of our intestines can alter the way our brains work and behave, giving a whole new meaning to 'Food for thought'.

As a nutritionist, microbiologist and neuroscientist, Ruairi Robertson is passionate about the link between our bellies and brains. His research is examining how our intestines and the microbes within them can influence both physical and mental health, and most importantly how our diets influence this relationship. Ruairi has travelled the world researching food, and believes it is the key to global public health. Ruairi is a PhD student in University College Cork in Ireland and current Fulbright Scholar (2015/16) to Harvard University.

Funny how we as naturopathic doctors have been talking about this for decades, we got it from traditional chinese medicine as well. So funny how now it becomes mainstream but I’m glad there is actual research to prove these points.

here's a few suggestions for stopping drinking at home
Try eating food when you are drinking - this cuts down the amount you drink.
Take a break from alcohol.
Make a note of how much you drink, then you know if you are cutting down.
Set yourself goals - don't make them too hard at first.
Pick one or two days or each week when you will not drink at all. Next, try to stop drinking for one week each month.

I think that if youbare going to talk about the negative effects of c-section yhan it is important to also include and consider the reasons behind why there is so many c sections for example people who have herpes, which in the USA there is a significant amount including myself cannot give normal births. Not only these types of peoplw but there are thousands of reasons. I literally took his information as a critics towards c section when conditions and reasons exist behind the determination to have a c section.

Almost every point/major sentence he says includes "might", "maybe", "could", "possibly", "almost"......
When he says the brain doesnt control the gut... cool, every other organ in the body can function without a brain.

Occasional Enthusiast Rob Jones

This is interesting but incomplete research.... The second brain was named as its a dense colloney of nerve cells which sometimes act independently from the brain... In fact what is hypothesised by the BSC group research is not about density of nerve cells but the nerve cells themselves... Each nerve cell are identified like a pc the nuclear processes carry out functional independent activity and are shaped by the chemical environment in the body... What this speaker is discribing with difficulty is the type of gut bacteria undertaking specific digestive functions actually liberate different nutrients.. In turn these nutrients determine small changes in chemical composition of the environment the nerve cells live. It is thought to make small changes in the nurve behaviour conducted to the brain either by reproduction or functional slowing .... So if you over colonise certain bacteria in the gut if does effect brain activity for dependence to acquire more of that nutrient or bacteria... This can lead to peoples addiction for eating the wrong foods... Perpetuating errant bacteria guy types

This is a very modern mix of clickbait, soundbites, propaganda, cherry-picked confirmation bias. I do agree with the central premise of 'gut has significant influence on behaviour and brain' - though wtf do I know anyway, to even have an opinion? - but I'd want a more nuanced, rigorous, 'complex/ambivalent' approach (note the use of 'more': just less certainty projected as religious dogma). Ted talks where speakers charmingly/self-effacingly/manipulatively project Truth looks a bit pseudo-science to me. That's a shame, Ruairi - I think you'd make a compelling case if you weren't so amazed with yourself at how you've charmed your audience... Sadly, Ted has become a place where speakers dispense narrow, 'unambiguous' Truths in chunks. Hey, Ted, how about some speakers who get on stage and tell about difficult, complex, unclear issues?

Excellent TED. Also - the Japanese believe the "gut-brain" is a primitive powerful sensory connection that actually responds to situations/life in a fundamental, automatic manner (almost in the way cockroaches' legs start running without asking their brain first). More to do with nerves but surely related? So, eat well & listen to your "gut instinct" - it's probably right ...
