    I was doing some googling and ran across this page/quote:

    "Important: In order to give the carrots time to work their digestive magic, Dr. Peat suggests not eating anything else for at least an hour."

    http://community.weightwatchers.com/Blo ... ID=1503150

    This is the first I've heard about avoiding food (and I'm assuming that means milk too, right?) for an hour after eating the salad. Can anyone else back this up?

    Thanks!

    IIRC, the carrot salad will soak up nutrients so that's why you want to take it away from food.

    Well, sorta right. :lol:

    So for me I guess carrot salad delays my digestion enough to slow it down to nothing and bung things up. :(

    :lol: Yeah quite a bit different actually. I had just come out of meditation and was quite spacey when I looked it up. :?

    Have you tried the bamboo shoots? I hear they taste like cow dung but get the job done. ;)

    Yes I tried them but since they come out of the can I just do not trust them. They taste metallic like.

    Just used some tonight in shrimp fried rice. No distinctive taste. Soy sauce masks any flavor. My son just said he hated the crunchy stuff in it. Lol

    I thought I heard Peat say in an interview with East West Healing that it doesn't matter and you can eat it at a meal. So I guess you can just take your pick and eat it how you please. I can't remember which interview it was, but if I listen to it again, I will post which one it was. He did say though that it inhibits absorption of fats, so it could be helpful with fat loss. I'll definitely try and get the exact quotes.
