Summary

Welcome back to our weekend Cabral HouseCall shows! This is where we answer our community's wellness, weight loss, and anti-aging questions to help people get back on track! Check out today's questions: Eliana: Hi, I am addicted to your podcasts! They have taught me so much. My question today is about the timing of carbs. It makes sense to me that with my goal of getting lean, it would be best to eat my carbs earlier in the day and none at night (after 3?). I heard your episode about meal type/timing and do eat liquid breakfasts, and have begun to have my carbs at lunch. I have begun cutting carbs out of my dinner and mostly have greens and fish, sometimes lentil soup. I eat a very healthy diet based on Mediterranean practice. I do sometimes have a snack after dinner which is usually a rice cake with 2 tablespoons of peanut butter or something with dark chocolate. Do you agree with cutting out these carbs at night, and do you have any other ideas for me to get lean, as I already eat well and exercise frequently (lift 3-4x’s per week and throw in cardio around that). Thanks!! Julie: Hi Dr. Cabral, some years back I was diagnosed with PCOS (but no insulin resistance) after coming off the pill that was prescribed to me due to my bad acne when I was 15 years old. My doctor put me on the pill again until I had enough of taking synthetic hormones. I stopped taking the pill about three years ago altogether. I have always been very slim but about two years ago started to put on fat on my legs (+cellulite) and arms and just some around my belly. Also my skin has never been really clear. I suffer from acne mainly on my cheeks and upper back and shoulders. I am also prone to rosacea. I also noticed that hair growth increased on my legs and to some extend in my face. I have been taking vitex which brought me a regular period but I stopped taking it (June 2017) after my Naturopath told me that I should not take it long-term. I still get my period but my cycle is ranging from 35 to 61 days. I was trying to heal my gut with primal dieting, but felt awful due to histamine reactions. In August last year, I tried to heal my gut once again with the "gut thrive in 5 program" which I did great on. I did not lose any weight though, but my sugar cravings are gone, I seem to have a higher threshold for histamine containing products and I have regular bowel movements. Unfortunately, I still worked out even though my muscles were fatigued most of the time. I had the same issue when I was cutting out carbs on the primal diet. I now know that I was stressing out my body, and increased my carb intake dramatically. My carbs are mainly coming from sweet potato, pumpkin, some fruit (no citrus fruit), legumes, oats and occasionally from quinoa or wild rice. I also cut back on my workouts and focused on destressing, doing walks, Yin yoga (and some vinyasa classes if my body could handle them as my muscle fatigue was extreme at some points). I feel way better with an increased carb intake and have a lot more energy. My muscle fatigue is now completely gone and I started to incorporate about 2, 20 to 30 minutes runs into my week. I also do some more vinyasa classes now and I feel fine. Still do Yin Yoga, am on a 55 days meditation streak and started to take Rhodiola in the morning, which seems to help with energy and recovery and I think I am on a good way to get my period regular this time. I also started to look more into Ayurveda in order to tame my skin, as it still is inflamed most of the time and to better look after myself according to my body type. About two years ago I saw an Ayurvedic doctor in Germany, but she wasn't sure if I was a Pitta-Kapha or Tridosha. If I do online test, I always get Tridosha. However, I am focusing on a Pitta pacifying diet (but eat no dairy at all and just occasionally some eggs and salmon) at the moment and have the feeling that it helps with the inflammation on my skin. What still really bothers me is the fat around my legs
