I have been eating a ton of cruciferous vegetables and resistant starches the past month but I wake up in the morning with my hands swollen every day. The only meat I eat is wild shrimp, scallops, sardines, herring , anchovies and wild salmon. Regarding fats are you referring mainly to EVOO and Avocados and Omega 3's in a phospholipid form or more fatty red meats?
What type of brain scan do I need to do to see how much damage is already done?
I am also drawn to the OMAD one meal a day diet because I just don't get that hungry. For three weeks after learning about my 4/4 I started eating one very healthy meal a day in a 2 hour window. Now I am eating 2 meals a day in a 4-5 hour window.
Mel wrote:My big question has to do with complex carbs and fiber vs. maintaining a low carb intake. In a video interview with Dr. Bredesen, he mentioned that HIGH FIBER is one of the keys to brain health (helping to regulate insulin, cholesterol and toxins). He commented that years ago, we likely consumed 100 grams of fiber per day compared to modern times (he recommends at least 30 grams of fiber per day). The challenge I find is that the foods that are high in fiber (grains, beans, oats) are not recommended for APOE4 individuals and they would raise .my carb intake to much higher than what would keep me in a mild ketosis that Dr. Bredesen would recommend. Do I assume that the only complex carbs he is recommending would be vegetables (and not grains, beans and oats)?
