Re: Another fun n=1 experiment, looking at glucose, ketones, IF, & macros

Here's a bit more data, now up to 5 days between carbs (avg. net carb intake: ~80g/d.) So far, I'm not seeing an increase in fasting glucose or a drop in glucose disposal. Screen Shot 2017-11-10 at 10.55.27 PM.png From here on out, I might just log the macros and spare my fingertips / test strips by...

Re: Trodusquemine

I came across this one the other day -- pretty encouraging.

This was a funny thread on reddit talking about the drug:

Re: Newbie Question/Confusing data

Welcome to the site Wanderer! It sounds like you've got a C where you want a T and a T where you want a C. The old switcharoo. I have seen Apolipoprotein E Genotyping from SpectraCell for $140 (pretty expensive compared with 23andme) and from a "Cardio IQ" Quest lab test (over $200), but m...

Re: Convenience foods

I usually grab pickles and olives as a convenience food. Often, if I'm craving a snack, I'm craving salt. Hummus seems like a relatively safe bet -- it can be a pain to make yourself (soaking, pressure cooking, roasting veg, blending, refrigerating, cleaning, etc.) Majestic Garlic sells a line of sp...

Re: New here--where do I start?

Hi SoccerMom, welcome to the site! I'm sorry to hear about your family's experience with Alzheimer's and dementia -- I'm in my 30's and had to view this progression for my grandfather. It can sure light a fire underneath you to try to find a way to manage whatever risks might be manageable. That's g...

Re: Perpetual ketosis considered harmful?

I continue to believe that I will do best if I intentionally vary cellular energy sources over time among glucose, fatty acids, and ketones in order to model more closely the circumstances under which my (non-Arctic) forebears thrived. This makes sense to me, although I then wonder -- how many carb...

Re: Another fun n=1 experiment, looking at glucose, ketones, IF, & macros

In this short window, I've had my highest level of ketosis when I did a morning jog (Maffetone formula target HR of 180bpm - age) then tested several hours later and the following morning. Usually, I detect low levels of ketones soon after anything glycolytic / anaerobic, often with high-ish blood g...

Another fun n=1 experiment, looking at glucose, ketones, IF, & macros

I received my Keto Mojo a couple weeks ago and have been looking for an excuse to use the thing. I've been curious for a while now if a sustained, uninterrupted HFLC diet will gradually increase fasting glucose and worsen postprandial glucose disposal (as Mercola and previous experiments have hinted...

Re: How can I improve my lipids?

Just curious for context, what sort of diet do you follow and how's your BMI / height / weight? A 76:45 HDL / TG ratio while active in your 30s would seemingly suggest a decent insulin sensitivity (if you follow a HFLC diet, maybe there's physiological IR?) On the supplement front, it seems like Fis...

Re: Reference Management Software

I've never come across Mendeley -- pretty cool app.

I tend to just throw everything in a big Evernote pile of copy pasta.
