Re: Labs question

Youch. I know a number on this site follow Dr Gundry, but this makes no sense to me. I'm with you. I do a variety of exercise - walking the dogs up and down steep hills for 2-3 miles in the morning, working with a PT to work on strength training once a week (may change to twice), and I try to play v...

Julie, when does it come out!?

Re: Carbohydrates and Longevity

It's a similar conclusion to the 2002 study, we've known different APOE genotypes metabolize glucose differently, but there are no conclusions stating that glucose is bad for APOE4. In fact, low GI carbs seem to be beneficial, at least compared to SFA (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/30336580)....

Re: Labs question

Thanks Mike, for the clip. Gundry does continue to advocate for the olive oil. He did mention in the youtube from a couple years back that the Nigerians were not eating the same type of grain we eat here. I have heard him say cheese bad, and I am your typical 4 that loves cheese. But, I thought eve...

Re: Carbohydrates and Longevity

We could debate evolutionary history forever, as it is all speculative. There is quite a bit of recent evidence, so not just speculative. I've read Reiman's 2002 study I was referring to this 7/2018 article https://www.jneurosci.org/content/38/30/6665 People come on here and follow narrow-minded ad...

Re: Carbohydrates and Longevity

Different people handle carbs differently, and there are many other genes that are more influencial for this than APOE4. I'm surprised so many people think that a single gene should dictate their entire diet. In general, carbs are great fuel for a healthy and active lifestyle. So I agree that diffe...

Re: Labs question

Watching youtube videos earlier today, I noticed that Dr. Gundry left me with the impression that red meat is bad for 4s. Dr Gundry seems to have changed his tune lately - I listened to him this weekend on Morning Joe, where he talks about his book "The Plant Paradox," and he talks about ...

Re: How do you put on weight?

Macadamia nuts have good fat/carb ratio, so is a great snack for putting on weight. If you are okay with dairy, then Whisps, made from either Parmesan or cheddar cheese also have a good ratio, and are quite addicting. Both can be found at Costco or online.

Re: "Laird Superfood" ?

They do have an unsweetened creamer with 1 gr of carbs. But if you are going to go down this route, You can do as I do and use heavy cream, if you are okay with dairy. It is technically not fasting since there are calories, but it is pure fat, so only the ketone pathway should be started. I wait unt...
