Re: Broken Brain Dr. Mark Hyman's Documentary

For resistant starch, I use banana flour.

I tried potato starch, but it made me feel "achy" all over.

I actually do both Metamucil unsweetened orange (1tsp) plus 1tsp of banana flour probably 4-5 days a week.

Re: HDL helps clear beta-amyloid

Great.

I struggle to get my HDL over 40.

:cry:

I think I saw somewhere that exercise has a strong beneficial effect on HDL.

I've got the diet/supplements/sleep down pretty good.

I had better start focusing more on the exercise, now.

Re: My Oral Microbiome: How I’m attempting to improve its microbial diversity

Hoping I don't derail the thread ... I think it's related. Is there a relationship between oral bacterium and sinus bacterium? I have sinus issues ... frequently. I think that I could resolve that by restoring the proper biome in my sinuses, but I don't know how to go about that. I've read about the...

Re: Calorie restriction (CR)

I don't count carbs every day like I used to since I have a pretty good idea of what has carbs and what doesn't, and try to avoid the known sources of carbs. That said, I would think I am well below 50 carbs per day most of the time. I totally agree re: the relationship between lipids and heart dise...

Re: Calorie restriction (CR)

Here are my numbers from March. I am not as consistent as I would like to be, unfortunately. And, I don't recall how consistent I was at that time. But, here they are: A1C 5.5 eAG 111 Total Cholesterol 162 Trig 70 Chl/HDL 3.6 HDL 45 Non-HDL 117 LDL 103 VLDL 14 When I was eating the standard diet, my...

Re: Calorie restriction (CR)

Bredesen's protocol is to fast 12 hours per day (overnight, between dinner and breakfast), but then to eat the normal (low glycemic) three meals during the day. I normally don't eat lunch. So, I am, in effect, fasting 10-12 hours between every meal. I assume this would be considered a form of interm...

Re: Omega-3 Index-Know your level!

I'm confused. I just read another post where we were cautioned against fish oil due to stroke risk. I currently take 2G in the morning and 2G in the evening. And, I've reduced my saturated fat intake (opting for seafood/chicken instead of red meat) while increasing my olive oil intake. It's resulted...

I'm confused.

Wouldn't thinner blood help to prevent strokes?

Re: For My Fellow EVOO Epicurians

Is it crazy to eat a tbs of olive oil every day ... just as-is ... on a spoon?

I find it keeps the bowel movements more "normal."

I used to use metamucil every day. Would rather not go back to that.

Plus, MUFA is good for us, no?
