Re: New Gundry Book - The Plant Paradox

Mimi, we must be on different Facebook groups. I'm on one called: The Plant Paradox, formerly Diet Evolution and don't see anyone complaining of gut issues... I struggle with the protein thing. In general, I buy the evidence that suggests less is correlated with longevity, BUT my blood results cons...

Re: New 4/4 Have Question About Siblings

George, I assume this probability is the same for each sibling. I'm just trying to wrap my head around this. I've been assuming that the probability of 4/4 for my siblings would be lower than 44.4%, but I've never had a number in mind. (BTW, I do trust your work.) Alysson, I don't guarantee my anal...

Re: 23andme and Ancestry - differing reports

I posted about the test name through Labcorp here. It was $239 when I did it.

As to going back on the different results, is talk about the raw data Snps, not Promethease.

Re: New 4/4 Have Question About Siblings

Hi & welcome. One day I mentally worked this out for my 4/4 wife's family (4 sibs) while riding ski lift. If you know nothing about your parents, other then they have at least one E4, then here are the results: I show my work here. PROBABILITY 44 16/36 = 44.4% 4X 16/36 = 44.4% XX 4/36 = 11.1%

Re: 23andme and Ancestry - differing reports

I'd go back to the companies and ask for a retest from both & explain why. I did have a female friend who came up as male (I never saw the report) with several retests on 23andMe. She got frustrated and didn't pursue to conclusion. This caused me to look at SNPedia for GS144 - male & GS145 -...

Re: Designing an E4 Fasting trial...

Hi Frank, A person on a Gundry FB support group today asked why he had microwaved muffin recipes in his book. After a bit, he responded. I've written about this extensively before, but here I ago again. Years ago, a man cured his coronary artery disease by following my diet and made an appointment t...

Re: A1c < 5 carries its own risks?

Without detailed look at the data, I'm guessing those who have low A1C's and eating "normally" in our society may have other issues. In other words, may be associative with some other morbidity rather than causative.

Re: Brainstorming about our 2017 meet-up!

Quick heads up for those who haven't made their reservations or who are on the fence about joining us, the LowCarb hotel block for the Bayside Wyndham is sold out. I just made the last reservations for some of our speakers, BUT they still have rooms available. I saw that you can go to sites like Ho...

Re: Designing an E4 Fasting trial...

Thanks, you both seem to be in the same ballpark. I weigh 116 pounds, and a 4% loss would put me at 111, which at 5'6" would be quite a low BMI. It's hard enough for me to put on weight without a lot of carbs, so I'm uncertain at the moment that a 5-day fast is something I should do. Anyone kn...

Re: Designing an E4 Fasting trial...

Wow, so you're fasting much more often than one would following Longo's protocol. Of course, his recommendations are influenced to a great degree but what he thinks would be doable by most people. G I agree, I look at what he did to get the results in the rodents (before FMD). Also, from what I hea...
