Hi fellow gnolls,

 

I was wondering if anyone hear has heard/read/tried of  Calton Nutrition's book Naked Calories or their multi-vitamin Nutreince?  I was introduced to them via Sean Croxton's Real Food Summit and decided to check out their book from my local library.  Upon reading it, I decided I would try their powdered multivitamin when I had the money.  For more information here is the link http://www.caltonnutrition.com/explore-nutreince.aspx 

 

I have bought one box (will be getting another, hopefully the unsweeted/unflavor version soon to come out, to give it a fair two month trial).  I will report back once the trial is complete.

I listened to their sales pitch during the 'Real Food Summit' and laughed at their fear-tactic marketing and the logical fallacy of the 'non competition' nonsense with their supplements.

 

Nothing that I ingest (save something that speeds up motility without impinging absorption) will inform my digestive system that it's supposed to make the food I eat not compete with the supplements (and vice-versa) I take.  Our bodies take the time they take, and if that A and D go into 'action' at the same time, Oh well. May the strongest molecule win.

 

I'm rather sad that I listened to their sales pitch, but the purpose of the 'Real Food Summit' *is* to give time to people that want to sell something.  I wouldn't give them one red cent.  Or even a green cent.

So Craig,

 

Thank you for your comments, it has made me think twice about getting that second box.  After reading their book, the logic seemed to make sense to me, especially after reading Stanton's Why We Get Hungry series (which was very easy to understand and very enlightening) in that we get hungry because we need certain nutrients, and that if we have "micronutrient suffiency" all diseases would be slowed or reversed.

 

From my understanding of the research articles they read, "the competition" between nutrients appears to be hidden in one-sentence long statements.  Unfortunately I have no links to provide. 

I guess, I will have to use the box I got and see if it does anything.  I'm willing to at least give it a shot, since I did buy the box, might as well use it up.

 

Edit:  Upon further thought, I have decided to discontinue it's use.  Stomach discomfort, plus gas after taking it goes away after two hours, but still happens after each use.  Also realized it can't be vegan friendly and have "real" vitamin A in it.  So that should have been a red flag right there.  Thank You Craig for getting me to think twice about Nutreince, as I will now be going back to my D3, Magnesium Malate for supplements.  I might be getting some fish oil as well.

Jen,

 

I agree - if it's causing you discomfort, that may be a good reason to either not take it or get to the root of why you feel that way.

 

I've read J. Stanton's Limitations of Self-Experimentation article, and I do feel appropriately sheepish that for some things I do commit heinous acts of n=1ing. (like supplement and food intake), but sometimes medical and genetic circumstances *do* make us a little bit unique.  Maybe this is true for you in some way as well.

That and I learned that their Vitamin A source is Palmitate which comes from palm oil (not good).  Looks like this is another case of should have done more research before buying something.Embarassed

E Craig:

N=1 that "this makes me feel great!" is often useful…what I'm campaigning against in that article is the idea that something isn't bad for you just because it doesn't make you immediately feel bad.

Jen W:

I find the Perfect Health Diet supplementation recommendations very useful, and I recommend them over any pre-mixed formula (which will generally be sold at a tremendous markup.)
