Re: Designing an E4 Fasting trial...

I've done 3 extended day fasts (2+ weeks) without any gallstone issues, while my wife, who had her gall bladder removed has had trouble with extended fasts. For IF, she is using digestive enzymes.

Re: Anyone else doing a low saturated fat Ketogenic diet?

I've been overweight all of my adult life, and was even as a child for that matter. My mom had similar problems her whole life. No matter what she tried, it did not work. I carry a double mutation for the ApoE4 gene, which means my mom had to have had at least one copy herself. I think this gene ma...

Re: Low fasting insulin and high HS-CRP

Thanks so much. :) I hope it works out. And one thing to remember - you are an experiment of 1. You should treat it like a real experiment and take some notes for awhile. Track your carbs and fat and if you feel out of sorts, take your blood sugar. Let's see if we can figure out what the pattern is...

Re: Importance of sleep interview by Rhonda Patrick

It's the harpies (to-do list, wish-I'd-done list, things-to-worry-about list), the hot flashes (intolerant to HT), genetic predisposition to insomnia (Dad takes Ativan to sleep), intolerance to any form of oral sleep aid (herbs, melatonin, cold medication) . . . I've sort of given up. I do have the...

Re: Low fasting insulin and high HS-CRP

This morning my FBS was 85 and Fasting Ketones were .7 I had some sausage and an avocado for breakfast. An hour later I was feeling really tired with an elevated heart rate. Decided to take both again: BS - 66 and Ketones - 0.8. Any thoughts? Yes, your body does not like ketones for some reason. It...

Re: Low fasting insulin and high HS-CRP

In the past few months I've cut out the ice cream and would eat meat with every meal, along with some produce. And about 1 oz of dark chocolate a day. And 4 glasses of wine a month. I often feel tired, sort of woozy, not sharp. Many times a day I have a lapse in memory, where I either go into a roo...

This is also strange; your ketones are remaining in your blood... Not being utilized? I would be very careful with large amounts of fats and exogenous ketones until you get this figured out...

Re: Low fasting insulin and high HS-CRP

You are going low with your Glucose levels when you have fat. Your body is making ketones it seems, but that is not helping your low BS for some reason. That lousy feeling you get sounds like what I used to get when I was on BS lowering meds and I went low. What is strange is that normally with keto...
