Following up Week 19:
1. I went overboard this week with broccoli sprout measurements. Rinsing broccoli sprouts on a 12-6-6 schedule, each day’s WET and DRY a.m. weights were usually less than p.m. weights. But were they significant weight differences?
- Having no moisture for 12 hours vs. 6 hours produced a significant difference in DRY a.m. vs. p.m. weights (hypothesis A).
- Moisture was the equalizer, though, as WET a.m. vs. p.m. weights weren’t significantly different (hypothesis B).
- (hypothesis C) Were a.m. WET weight gain percentages the same as p.m.? No.
- Although most of Week 19’s measurements were taken on an 8-8-8 schedule, its 65.5 ± 4.4 g WET average was confirmed by both 61.8 ± 6.2 g a.m. and 66.4 ± 4.7 g p.m. distributions.
I’ll guess that laboratory automated conditions would change differences in DRY a.m. vs. p.m. weights (A) and WET weight gain percentages (C) to become insignificant. IAW, removing human causes of variability would improve results.
2. Per Week 19’s item 2, eating protein, fats, and fiber along with broccoli sprouts lowered compounds’ bioavailability. I’m looking for accompaniments that won’t have adverse effects.
Eating 60+ grams of broccoli sprouts twice a day is a lot. Mixing in sauerkraut tastes alright, but commercial brands have too much sodium.
I had no idea that would happen. And I won’t come down no more.
4. Tomorrow will be Day 140 of eating broccoli sprouts every day. I’ve successfully addressed inflammation, and will maintain current practices.
Left ankle and knee twinges are among reminders of other aging phenotype aspects. The body clock reset described in An environmental signaling paradigm of aging apparently requires more than what I’ve been doing.
