Re: Fasting recommendation

What do you mean by eliminate the food to fast? In context: Keto adapt first: consuming MCT's & fat with a bit of protein to transition to an adapted state. This might take 2 weeks. When keto adapting or fasting, electrolytes including sodium, potassium & magnesium are key. When insulin is ...

Re: Fasting recommendation

I think I have a very active metabolism and for me to even go 3 hours during the day without snacking is a challenge. When I skip snacking, I tend to start losing weight pretty easily. I do eat 3 meals a day. Hi Ski, What is your objective? Most of the fasters I know are more on the "easy keep...

Gundry tested us for this and for both Theresa and me, phytosterol supplements are contraindicated.

Re: New here and a bit overwhelmed.

This is a thread on calcium scans . Ivor Cummins has discussed calcium scoring numerous times . He also writes about insulin vs cholesterol as a risk for heart disease . From this FB thread I didn't read the paper, but risk factors are likely MESA risk factors. https://scontent-ord1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v...

Re: New here and a bit overwhelmed.

Wonder if your brain fog could be "keto flu" as you changed diets? see here. HOMA is your fasting glucose times your fasting insulin divided by 405. The average for this country is 1.75, which is too high, you want to be at 1.0 or lower, anything over 2.5 is insulin resistant. With your in...

Re: New here and a bit overwhelmed.

Ive been on a Peleo diet for the past 5 years where I eat a lot of red meat, butter and eggs(5 every morning fried in butter). Certainly not everyone will agree, however my wife and I are patients of Dr. Gundry. He's sampled all his patients for ApoE4 for ~15 years and then sees what happens. We've...

Re: Maintaining our Community as we Move Forward

Scout, Welcome. As Stavia mentions, for many of time is at a premium. Another issue is we don't all agree as THE best approach. I call point you to the approach my wife and I follow and most recent but others have a different take. We all had to climb (and are still climbing) a steep learning curve....

Here is the Abstract Poster And what Ron Rosedale had to say (don't recall if I already posted this): Homocysteine is a by-product of the metabolism of methionine, an amino acid found in protein...

Re: Drink Tea!

Very interesting LG1, Initially I thought " Well drinking 3 or 4 cups of tea daily didn't help my Mum" but then remembered like most other people at the time, she switched from brewing a pot of tea, to using teabags. Off to get an infuser, thanks LG1. Jafa, forgive my ignorance, but how i...
