How to Survive Holiday Feasting with Enzymes
The holidays are notorious for obliterating any kind of diet. The foods we eat for end-of-year gatherings are different from the rest
of the year. For many of us, eating creamy, sugary, fatty foods is the primary reason for celebrating.
How can we participate in holiday munching without feeling miserable?
Digestive enzyme supplements can help
by breaking down the foods you eat. The key is knowing how to take enzymes with those mega-meals full of carbohydrates and fats.

|Q and A: Help for a Picky Eater|
Q: My 3-year-old son is an extremely picky eater. He primarily eats french fries, popcorn, crackers, chicken nuggets, pretzels, and occasionally apples. He mainly drinks watered down fruit juice. We haven't started a GFCF (gluten-free, casein-free) diet yet, but that is the route we are headed.
We have tried giving him healthy alternatives, but he will not eat those foods. Which enzyme would you recommend?
A: Your son appears to be what we call a "carb craver": a child who selects out primarily starches and carbohydrates as his favorite foods.
I would suggest trying an enzyme product high in carbohydrase enzymes such as amylase and glucoamylase, lipase to help with the fats in the chicken nuggets, and perhaps the xylanase enzyme to help with the polyphenols in apples.
Our ZyCarb product would fit that list. This can help break down the starches while the food is still in the stomach and support the digestive process. For GFCF help we have other enzymes such as AFP-Peptizyde. I suggest trying one product at a time so you can evaluate the help that each product provides.
