Re: How much olive oil is too much?

As long as you eat vinegar with your olive oil, it looks like things may balance out a bit? If you are worried about your arteries: To link to this article: https://doi.org/10.1271/bbb.90953 https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/pdf/10.1271/bbb.90953?needAccess=true And a practical suggestion: I increase...

Re: "Bulletproof" Coffee

I did Bulletproof Coffee the other day to take a full 16 hr fast to a quasi 24hr fast and also as a way of transitioning from 16 hr daily fasts to a day to day 23 hr fast. All I can say is it was an amazing experience! I am concerned that the saturated fats may be harmful, but how can something tha...

Re: VENTING about ridiculous horrible stupid food environment!

Funny story. At one of our meet-ups, I had the surreal experience of dining with Drs. Bredesen, Wahls and Gundry all at one table. We were at a Mediterranean restaurant. The poor unsuspecting waitress brought a huge bread basket over and all three of them screamed: "NO, take it away!" :lo...

Re: Apoe4 news on ketogenic diet and exercise!

I suspect that the improvements on insulin resistance and other measures of metabolic health are both real and, if maintained, provide good news for this one young man... The conclusion that this 10 week intervention turned off the effects of ApoE 4 for "prevention of future neurodegeneration&...

Re: VENTING about ridiculous horrible stupid food environment!

SusanJ, YES. I teach over in one of the academic departments but mostly interact with students aiming for communications design or computer graphics work. I understand the pressures on these culinary/baking students and future restaurant managers. They need steady employment, #1, and they would most...

Re: Apoe4 news on ketogenic diet and exercise!

Does anybody have full text? Wonder if he was 4/4. I can't interpret the MOCA scores -- don't know how much variation you can expect on a couple of normal sunny days. Don't know what might be here that would trigger caution. But it sure does look like a case that behaved exactly the way people like ...

VENTING about ridiculous horrible stupid food environment!

Just want to get it off my chest. Like most people on here, I am more than a little bit controlling when it comes to food, not just because I am following a prevention protocol but also because I really have an investment in weight lost and advantages gained from eating a colorful, delicious, but de...

Re: "Alcohol is biggest lifestyle risk"

It is really hard to face this one down. I think you are very wise. I am almost 15 years older than you are now, and my drinking followed a similar pattern in my 40s until I hit a period of serious grief and misery -- then it went through the roof for a few years. Didn't actually help, and wound up ...

Re: Recommendation PLEASE!

What an awful experience. I'm so sorry. I will tell you a joke my dad (also a doctor) used to tell: What do they call the guy who graduated last in his class? ------------------------ "Doctor." That's not very nice of me, but this is a special situation.
