Re: Which labs should I use for testing sdLDL ?

A very lengthy series on cholesterol, Part III addresses testing: http://eatingacademy.com/nutrition/the-straight-dope-on-cholesterol-part-iii VAP is not equivalent to NMR. From the linked article: VAP tests do not report the number of LDL or HDL particles, but they do attempt to estimate atherogeni...

Re: Pyruvate creates an alternate neuronal fuel in mice

Juliegee: Pyruvate is an end product of metabolism of glucose/lactose. Metabolism of ketone bodies is distinct (*as I grasp it*) http://eatingacademy.com/nutrition/ketosis-advantaged-or-misunderstood-state-part-ii "ketone bodies bypass this process (i.e., glucose to pyruvate to acetyl CoA), as ...

Re: Pressure cooker

In my experience, lentils do better when not soaked (unless you want mush, which is the way mom made them). Other beans, do soak.

Do you have a crock pot/slow cooker in lieu of a pressure cooker?

Re: Buck Institute's RE:Mind

I was put off, as well, by their rather obvious use of your bio profile on their advertising brochure, where "Julia" had your story with all but a slightly different name. On the other hand, that is YOUR story, and if YOU didn't see the advertisement as misappropriation, I had no standing ...

Re: Buck Institute's RE:Mind

Juliegee, you nailed it:
Was there a group email sent without undisclosed recipients? Yikes.


I guess you got one, too. How f8ckng unprofessional for a medical facility, not to mention probably an actionable HIPAA violation. No thanks, Buck.

Re: Buck Institute's RE:Mind

No. Too expensive. And their email protocol is sloppy; unacceptable under US health privacy standards. If I was made of money, I'd decline based on the email snafu alone.

Re: Coconut Oil

Previously, Costco carried Nutiva brand at a very good price. My local Costco has now switched to a Kirkland Signature brand, at about the same price but in two smaller containers. IMO the important factor is organic, virgin, cold-pressed -- in order to get the full MCT suite: all three of the capyr...

Re: Diet Priorities

IMO Stavia is correct. High blood glucose damages the arterial walls, and it is this damage that allows very small lipid particles to penetrate. Plus, if you are an ApoE4 carrier, mitochondrial metabolism of glucose is deficient. You need other food for your brain, and your brain only burns glucose ...

Re: GG rs9472817 annuls APOE epsilon 4 risk? Wo Hoo!

So what's going on here? I checked my data on my Prometheus spreadsheet -- no rs9472817. (I ran Prometheus again just about 5 weeks ago, so it should be updated for new results.) Then I logged into 23andme and found it (I was sequenced on chip v3). Why the discrepancy?
