BBQ Season Is Here
Tips for Beating Backyard BBQ Bloat
With nutritional educator Dr. Julie Gatza (“Dr. Julie”) For most people, BBQ season begins in May and continues through September. For those out there who are hardcore BBQ enthusiasts, the season might be all-year-round (we’ve all seen the memes about snowstorm BBQs). For many of us, the warm weekends ahead will be the perfect time to fire up our backyard cookers and fill our patios and palates with the delicious smells and tastes of sizzling steaks, burgers, and links served hot off the grill. Nutritional educator Dr. Julie Gatza (“Dr. Julie”) is here to share a few suggestions on how we can ensure that not only our taste buds have a wonderful time at our next outdoor cookout, but that our gastrointestinal system doesn’t suffer any painful “barbeque blowback”, including stomach aches, gas, bloating, belching, and constipation.
Here are Dr. Julie’s tips for a trouble-free tummy during the 2021 barbecue season:
- Don’t pile everything onto your plate then gobble it down in the same sitting The brain gets a signal to supply digestive enzymes for whatever food type you eat first. If you start to chew a second and third type of food too early, the signal to produce new enzymes won’t be processed as quickly and the new foods will not be properly digested, causing bloating, gas, heartburn, and stomach pain. Additionally, you won’t get the energy from the food you’re eating because the body will now have to spend energy getting rid of the toxins that are forming from these wrongly mixed foods. Chew each bite slowly, a dozen or more times before swallowing, to trigger the proper enzymes and to aid absorption. Side benefit: You’ll feel full sooner and won’t eat as much.
- Steak or potato salad – which should I eat first? One huge mistake most people make is eating their steak along with a baked potato or a potato side dish — mixing heavy starches with heavy proteins. Eat steaks, burgers, and hot dogs first, slowly. You can have a bite of salad along the way. Once your steak is pretty well gone, after 15 minutes, have some potatoes. Then, if you want dessert, wait about 20 minutes. If you consume heavy sugar or fruit on top of meat or carbohydrate, the fruits and sugars will begin to ferment because they wouldn’t be properly broken down, and that causes a lot of gas.
- Avoid trying new unfamiliar foods and strange food combinations Don’t eat an assortment of “unfamiliar” foods and food combinations. It’s difficult for your body to signal a need for certain enzymes when your body has never experienced a particular food or food combination before.
- Don’t eat if you’re too hot, too cold, emotionally upset, or physically ill
If your body is under physical or emotional stress or discomfort it will shut down enzyme production and digestive activity, so any food you eat will not be digested and will ferment in your digestive tract. Don’t eat after baking in the sun; cool down in the pool first.
- Eat garnishes and veggie dishes that assist digestion. Certain cultures will add garnishes, herbs, and spices to help with digestion, like ginger, which is super for digestion. Others add hot peppers, which are a stimulant to the digestive tract and help the body secrete more hydrochloric acid. Some cultures use turmeric to help digestion. Others add pineapple to their meats, which allows the bromelain in the pineapple to help break down the protein. In preparation of Greek food, lemon is used to assist digestion.
- Understand the role of “5 key digestive enzymes” and supplement them as needed: As we age, our body’s ability to produce digestive enzymes diminishes. To help break down different types of foods and improve digestion and nutrient absorption, these key enzymes can be taken individually or as a combination supplement (like AbsorbAid).
Protease: This enzyme breaks down proteins and liberates amino acids which are then absorbed through the intestinal walls.
Amylase: present in saliva, breaks down carbohydrates into sugars
Lipase: secreted by the pancreas into the small intestines to break down dietary fats into simple fatty acids and glycerol which can then be absorbed
Cellulase: helps decompose cellulose (vegetable fiber) into simple sugar
Lactase: converts milk sugar (lactose) into simple sugars glucose and galactose

Wearing a Mask Outside
Dr. Carole Liberman M.D., M.P.H. (‘America’s Psychiatrist’), a board-certified Psychiatrist talked about the lack of trust in the DCD and Fauci and joined John today to talk about the mask phenomenon and why some people, even after the CDC has loosened its guidelines, feel it’s a necessity. The answers may surprise you.
Poll: 42% Still Believe in Wearing Masks Outside Despite new recommendations of the CDC. A significant portion of the public still believes in wearing a mask outside regardless of guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), according to a recent survey. The survey indicates that forty-two percent of respondents believe everyone in their area should continue to wear a mask regardless of the CDC guidelines. Of those who believe in continuing to wear masks, broken down by party, the results were almost even; 36 percent of Republicans and 37 percent of Democrats want everyone around them to wear masks.

Why Would We Give Up Citizenship for Subjection in the name of Equity?
- Constant political squabbling on every issue is only a symptom of a mortal threat to our individual liberty.
- Movement to water down the difference between citizenship, and residents, aliens, and occupants.
- Our unique status as Free citizens
- Very few people have been blessed to be free citizens with individual political and economic freedom!
- Genuine rights are given by God eternally
- Subjects are ruled by government
- “Dual citizenship” further confuses people
- To enjoy individual liberty and succeed as a country, we must accept the free action of those with whom we disagree.
- The push for equity is a direct attack on our freedom free people are different through our birth, talent, and efforts.
- We owe our freedom to those who sacrificed and built our great country. If we are to fulfill our obligation, we must:
- Wake up
- Stand up
- Saddle up
- Show up
- Speak up
- Toughen up
- Stay up
Why would anyone give up our gift of individual liberty to be pulled down to an equality of mediocrity?
Why would we give away our right as a master of our government for a role of a subject to it?
Why would we sacrifice the gift purchased at such a high price for slavery to an all-powerful government led from either side of the political spectrum?

The Lack of Covid Science
Randi Weingarten: “[The CDC] asked us for language and we gave them language when they asked us for it.”

Feds Admit Inflation is Surging
POLITICAL/ECONOMICS ANALYST: Dr. Michael Busler, Ph.D., is a public policy analyst, economics expert, and a professor of finance at Stockton University in New Jersey. He is a featured columnist at Newsmax, The Hill, The Western Journal, and Townhall.com. Inflation in April accelerated at its fastest pace in more than 12 years as the U.S. economic recovery kicked into gear and energy prices jumped higher as reported by the Labor Department. The Consumer Price Index, which measures a basket of goods as well as energy and housing costs, rose 4.2% from a year earlier. A Dow Jones survey had expected a 3.6% increase. The month-to-month gain was 0.8%, against the expected 0.2%.
