portion control

"Kuten gwa", meaning "little portion" is another Japanese expression that goes with the 8/10ths full concept. The Japanese man on record as the human male who has lived the longest (116+ years) credited little portions as the key. It does strike me as important, moreso if you are...

insulin

Stavia, i came across that study while skimming through the book "The Okinawa Diet Plan". The Okinawans are known for their longevity. Their saying "hara hachi bu" (meaning "eat until you are 8/10ths full") is something that does make sense to me. While the science does...

grazing

Have you checked fasting insulin yet? I worry that grazing will elevate that number rendering you more susceptible to IR. The study at http://gg.gg/meal-freq compared a group eating 3 meals daily with a group eating 17 snacks daily. The latter group showed a drop in serum insulin levels.

Here are my calories numbers and saturated fat in grams, in reverse chronology for 31 days preceding the blood tests: 1764 6.8, 1693 6.3, 1803 7.0, 1818 7.0, 2006 7.1, 1844 12.8, 1605 6.0, 1800 5.9, 2124 7.9, 1744 7.2, 1530 4.6, 1873 4.1, 1905 12.5, 1402 4.8, 14...

July tests

Hi, Julie. The first of the 2 tests is really an April test followed by the July test. A grain-free month came right after the April test, then another month, then a lower fat & higher protein month before the early July test. So i’m fixing the comparison you typed, adding other parameters and n...

20% fat for a month

Got the best blood test results i’ve seen for myself at the 6.25 year mark into totally plant-based eating. The standard test showed these numbers: total cholesterol = 144, triglycerides = 79, HDLc = 41, LDLc = 87, non-HDLc = 103 while the advanced Cardio IQ panel for the same showed: total choleste...

Re: Fidel's tests

Fidel, I'd be careful drawing any dietary conclusions from that old Moreno paper. There are only eight 3/4s and zero 4/4s in the data sample. A careful reading of Table 5, however, reveals that E4 carriers actually demonstrated the LOWEST TC, LDL-C, and apoB on a higher MUFA diet; while still maint...

Re: Fidel's tests

Wondering if the low prevalence of apoE4 in southern Europe has something to do with the possibility that most E4 people don't do as well as others with higher amounts of monounsaturated fat. This particular study: http://gg.gg/apoE_LDL-size seems to support that, if i'm reading it correctly. The hi...
