Re: Zero carb diet will help prevent Alzheimer’s

Define "better." Oxidized LDL (oxLDL) is the problem, it's the LDL that "rusts" i.e oxidizes. APOE4 is associated with LDL cholesterol not being recycled by the liver very well, as a consequence higher concentrations of LDL particles are in the circulatory system for a longer pe...

Re: Zero carb diet will help prevent Alzheimer’s

he main point here is that while we obviously continued to eat whatever we could make use of, it was the increase in meat consumption that most likely gave early man the extra energy needed to grow the brain larger. Meat or ketones gave man the energy to grow a larger brain? I think both, in a lead...

Re: Zero carb diet will help prevent Alzheimer’s

Theresa, this is an old theory that doesn't hold up to current research. According to the primer, E3 appeared around 220,000 years ago. There is now evidence that early man controlled fire as early as 1 million years ago (mya) and was cooking food .5 mya. This is far prior to E3. Mike, read Theresa...

Re: Zero carb diet will help prevent Alzheimer’s

Most carbs are whole grain You may want to look into eliminating the whole grains. The big four that Dr Bredesen recommends avoiding are: grains, simple carbs, dairy, and lectins (lectins have been added since his book). Whole grains check two of those “boxes” they’re a grain and contain a lectin, ...

Re: Bredesen Protocol Effectiveness

We are not a Bredesen Protocol group, some of us follow him, some don’t. But I do have some personal thoughts why some say the protocol doesn’t work. First and foremost, the further down the path of damage, the harder it is to turn around, some are just too far gone. This is understandable given the...

Re: Zero carb diet will help prevent Alzheimer’s

Once again, the data was "fudged" to agree with the author's vegetarian bias. FYI, I am not vegetarian, maybe mostly vegetarian, because I do moderate animal protein/fat, but that is because of my ApoE4/4 status, not because of any particular bias. Let me refresh your memory about the com...

Re: Zero carb diet will help prevent Alzheimer’s

Look into carnivore/zero carb diets. It may possibly save your brain. Meatsavesbrains has some valid points, nevertheless I HAVE looked into the carnivore/zero carb and don’t recommend it, ESPECIALLY for APOEε4s. I know some very smart people who are strict carnivores, listened to presentations/pod...

Re: Updates to Dr Bredesen's Protocol

It would be interesting to hear more details about it from Matthew Walker. In his book, Why We Sleep , Matthew Walker has a good discussion of caffeine, it's half-life discussing how it can still have effects hours after intake, and caffeine's influence in opposition to adenosine (the sleepiness ch...

I was thinking that same thing, just about all foods have a j shaped curve as far as reaction. You need that "goldilocks" spot.
