Re: Which is the chicken and which the egg of mito dysfunction and glucose hypometabolism

Great post, Circ. Agree that we don't know. I also agree that keto isn't necessary for everyone. When reduced cerebral glucose utilization is present, however, it's the best fix we got for now.

Re: Diet help. Please post what is working for you!

Hi Mimi! Dr. Schweig used the BioHealth Adrenal Stress Profile w/ sIgA - 201-S. My AM results was at the very bottom of the reference range, but my noon test slipped below. Everything else was good. Might explain why I can't function without coffee ;). The power Adapt is great, but only if you're de...

Re: Diet help. Please post what is working for you!

The question about the Bullet Coffee, was because I didn't think I could make it through my exercise class after 14-15 hrs of fasting. I hear you, P45VA. If you're feeling weak or wobbly after your fast, you're probably not keto-adapted. FWIW, for anyone struggling with this transition, a very smal...

Re: Diet help. Please post what is working for you!

Juliegee, thank you for sharing your protocol. It seems a bit overwhelming at this point. I found out that I am APOE4/4 the week of my 72nd birthday and while I hate the thought, I may have to be as strict as you, given my age. I knew I as at risk for CVD as evidenced by my family history, so since...

Re: Diet help. Please post what is working for you!

It's worth noting that large LDLs are still atherogenic and probably more so in healthy individuals without metabolic syndrome. Yes, please show us your evidence, Swamp. Mimi, here's a power point with a description of my current diet with pics. It also has a lot of superfluous information you can ...

Re: New Gundry Book - The Plant Paradox

LOL, George, you just called me "elderly." I shall forgive you as we're basically saying the same thing- an accumulation of damage leads certain folks (not just the elderly ;)) to need more protein. In my case, it was undoubtably years of eating gluten (and other lectins) when I was very s...

Re: New Gundry Book - The Plant Paradox

Mimi, we must be on different Facebook groups. I'm on one called: The Plant Paradox, formerly Diet Evolution and don't see anyone complaining of gut issues... I struggle with the protein thing. In general, I buy the evidence that suggests less is correlated with longevity, BUT my blood results consi...

Re: Midwestern Meet-up 2017

I'm definitely still interested. We end up cancelling on May 16th as Rich, James and I were the only ones who could join. I'd love to get some more folks together from the general area. Let's shoot for sometime in the autumn. Chicago is particularly beautiful that time of year. Please, let us know i...
