Re: Keto, blood surgar, cholesterol, protein--how to balance?

Examine.com targets a lay audience, so they frame their recommendations against the number everyone knows - body weight - the status everyone knows - healthy weight, overweight / obese, pregnant, lactating - and the objective everyone knows - maintenance, muscle gain, fat loss. No calculation is ne...

Re: Keto, blood surgar, cholesterol, protein--how to balance?

Examine.com has continued to improve their How much protein do you need per day? article. Marc, I like much of what they are saying here, and it's nice to see that it is not one size fits all. Yet they still use body weight instead of lean body mass to determine how much protein a person needs (alo...

Re: Zero carb diet will help prevent Alzheimer’s

What I'm trying to say - Man's shift to a more carnivore diet came too early for E3 to have been the meat adaptation. Genetic change is faster than that, since we are talking about 500,000 years likely between the two events.

Re: Zero carb diet will help prevent Alzheimer’s

I do envy your writing Theresa. Yes, before carbs, both protein and fat of course. Where do you suggest the fat came from if not from animals 600,000 years ago in sub-Sahara Africa? It is easy now to get your EVOO from Costco, but much so less back then... Meat or ketones gave man the energy to grow...

Re: Zero carb diet will help prevent Alzheimer’s

I think the prevailing hypothesis comes Professor "Tuck" Finch from USC, suggesting that E3 is most likely the meat adaptive gene. I looked this up, and it what I found was from around 2004. Archaeology / Early man science has made great strides since then. Yes, man continued to grow its ...

Re: Zero carb diet will help prevent Alzheimer’s

1. APOEε4s are ancestral genes, we should eat in a way that makes our genes comfortable. Our ancestors were the original humans who had evolved from the apes living in trees and eating a mostly vegan – tree leaves diet with occasional grubs and insects added in for animal protein. We were hunter-ga...

Re: preventative supplements while asymptomatic

Recent research shows damage is occurring decades prior to symptoms. Specifically related to vascular system. Each of us needs to decide which supplements to take, but I would certainly start taking the common ones. And of course as much exercise as you can to strengthen blood flow to brain and prot...

Re: New to the board--interesting article "Apoliporotein E antagonist . . ."

I wonder about studies which indicate that APOE4 is just bad (rather than possibly bad in the context of modern diet/lifestyle) given that APOE4 was apparently evolutionarily conserved in humans/hominids for a million years or more. (And still widely present in the worldwide population.) Brian, APO...
