Re: The MIND Diet

I want to second what Susan said that we are all differently sized people, and throw in that we burn energy at different rates too. The place where I exercise has a scale made by https://www.inbodyusa.com/that claims it can measure basal metabolic rate by running a low grade electric current through you (I can't even feel it). It tells me that my basal metabolic rate is around 1650 kcal. This actually seems accurate in the long run, because if I go way over 1650 calories, I my weight creeps up, and I go under 1650, my weight then creeps back down.

That is a long-winded way of saying that you should eat the amount needed to maintain a healthy weight and not feel hungry. I myself avoid grains because they make me wicked hungry about 2-4 hours after I eat them, particularly if it is before 4pm. I think that those cravings would lead me to consume a lot of unnecessary extra calories. I don't actually know how many servings of vegetables I eat. I just know what size salad to make.

Lots of great comments here. One thing to consider about whole grains and legumes is that if you have Altz Type 3 concerns which involve CIRS markers, the CIRS is a multi system, multi- symptom illness which means exposure to biotoxins from water damaged buildings (mold) or lyme bugs or other, suppresses melanocyte stimulating hormone or MSH:

MSH - Melanocyte Stimulating Hormone
Normal Range: 35-81 pg/mL

Alpha melanocyte stimulating hormone (MSH) has multiple anti-inflammatory and neurohormonal regulatory functions, exerting regulatory control on peripheral cytokine release, as well as on both anterior and posterior pituitary function.

In mold illness or CIRS (Which many type 3 Altzheimers patients present with the same markers and may have biotoxin exposure and/or MARCONS (mulit antibiotic resistant coagulase negative staff) , MSH will be too low in over 95% of patients. This means increased susceptibility to mold illness, ongoing fatigue, pain, hormone abnormalities, mood swings, and much more. MSH is a hormone, called a regulatory neuropeptide, and it controls many other hormones, inflammation pathways, and basic defenses against invading microbes. Without MSH, bad things happen; chronic sleep disorders with non-restful sleep develop, and endorphin production is reduced, so chronic pain follows.

This is the long way of saying that in Type 3s likely the gut is extremely compromised. So this means many Type 3's have significant dysbiosis, candida infections, gut infections including SIBO. This means WHOLE GRAINS AND BEANS are really a no-go until the CIRS-like symptoms and labs are addressed in treatment.
3,4 but no family history of Altzheimers. However, mother likely had CIRS

SarahAnne,

In previous posts I've explained how I dehydrate, powder and encapsulate a variety of greens. I use it as an addition to eating fresh greens, not as a substitute. It's handy if you are too busy or traveling and can't eat enough of the fresh.

I can see that you've been very active in reading and posting on the forum, LBKnudson! We're always glad when new users re-activate forum threads with their own ideas and experiences.

One important step is needed to send an email notification to the person you're quoting of your reply:

Click the quotation mark icon in the upper righthand corner of that person's post. That brings their whole post over to a "post a reply" page, with "quote" brackets around it . When you select "Submit", those brackets create the white text box that your post is in above my reply.

Since SarahAnne wrote her post in March 2017 (you can see the posting date next to the user's name in any post), it's likely that she hasn't checked this topic in a while. So here's her post, slightly edited to reduce its size, quoted by me, with hopes that she may want to update us on how she's doing 3 years later!

Hi LB!

Just want to ask that you use the quotation mark at the far right of the group of icons to quote someone. When you use the exclamation point, it means you’re reporting a post to the Moderators for violating a rule.

It’s like sending an email to the Moderator instead of the person you want. So always look for the single quotation mark (like an apostrophe) at the end of the line!
Thanks!
