Re: APOE 4/4 Specific diet - Dr. Gundry or not?

The best I've found is the review of Gundry's book The Plant Paradox on Red Pen Reviews . Their review is very extensive. You can find it here . You speak my language with this reference. This was superb. I am still reading this, and its coming back to the concept of "what are we measuring to ...

Re: APOE 4/4 Specific diet - Dr. Gundry or not?

On the subject of diets, there is no perfect answer. I have the sense that Gundry plays a little loose and fast with things to make it easier for people to understand what not to eat. I personally cringe every time I hear that cashews are bad because they are a legume. But, I think the point of any...

Re: APOE 4/4 Specific diet - Dr. Gundry or not?

he did a recent podcast on apoe4. You might want to listen to it or read the transcript for his thoughts. He mentions small dense LDL from animal meat being particularly bad for e4. Interestingly, he's also said that higher sdLDL propensity is something people are born with and doesn't change much ...

Re: Strawberries and 34% lower risk of AD in Rush Memory Cohort

I need to cite the sources for this, but here's what I've confirmed so far. In Dr. Gundry's THE MATRIX PROTOCOL which has been referenced hundreds of times on this site, and the PDF that is often downloaded from this forum: Strawberries are considered SAFE FOODS. In Dr. Gundry's The Plant Paradox, t...

Re: Strawberries and 34% lower risk of AD in Rush Memory Cohort

I think Dr. Gundry would generally be against strawberries for the sugar content rather than lectins, but someone can correct me if I'm wrong. Many of us, Gundry followers or not, use berries as a source of whatever carb amount we allow ourselves because of what I've taken is their strong associati...

Re: Strawberries and 34% lower risk of AD in Rush Memory Cohort

Well aware of the trials underway as well as their size, and I presently am part of a LEADS study sponsored by NIA myself. None of that has anything to do with Dr. Gundry's specific work that is targeted again for selling products to this very specific community. Which again, circling back to the to...

Re: Strawberries and 34% lower risk of AD in Rush Memory Cohort

Thanks for the response, but to be blunt, I think this forum in particular should do better to answer this concern. As someone who has lurked here for years, it seems strange that there is not a definitive up/down consensus of all the SME's here on whether the protocol is or is not "beneficial&...

One day we will have a way to measure our status and track progress, and each one of us can try different diets and see what works best for us.


How's that coming along?

Re: Strawberries and 34% lower risk of AD in Rush Memory Cohort

Isn't this counter to Dr. Gundry's anti-lectin diet?

APOE 4/4 Specific diet - Dr. Gundry or not?

Just like trying to read history about which side of the Middle East conflict is "more right", I cannot for the life of me find heads or tails about whether Gundry's APOE 4/4 approach is a truck load of horse manure to sell his line of skin care products and thousands of dollars a year in ...
