Stavia you have nausea from stress or from diet or both? Are you having trouble with fat metabolism?
My concern that I just dont see raised here (perhaps I am in the extreme minority, but somehow I doubt it) is how people in their 40s and older can tolerate the large amounts of fiber and starch in a vegan or veg diet. At least long term. Most people I know in this age category have a history of antibiotic use. Abx kill off our good guys, leaving more bad guys to digest our carbs/fibers. I see a lot of people that end up with Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth (IBS or IBS/SIBO with gut symptoms and sometimes NOT gut symptoms but anxiety, restless leg, rosacea, fat malabsorption due to gut bugs decongugating our bile acids- and other markers of SIBO). People attempt vegan and veg diets with high amount of legumes and fiber foods and end up over a period of months with increased digestive distress....
So..... I am still waiting for people to post some lower fiber protein sources that have been helpful.
Pea? Rice? Hemp?
I also have the added fun of having mast cell issues and excessive histamine load, (High whole blood histamine) and reduced DAO enzyme activity (this is genetic). And dysbiosis from antibiotic use so likely I have gut bugs that are producing excess histamine). So I need to take a DAO enzyme, eat lower/anti histamine foods, and likely steer mostly clear of protein powders-although i still search for one- and can only eat frozen at sea fish. The picture is complicated...
Julie can you please elaborate a bit here for us newer to the science:
We have hints that increasing SCFAs may result in BHB which could offset the difference. Testing KBs, will help you know for sure. I’ll also be very curious to see if this affects your ability to fast and the effect on your glycemic markers.
SCFAs (short chain fatty acids) from what? Resulting in BHB (what is BHB?)
Are you assuming that Stavia will stay in mild ketosis despite the macro switch?
Julie also am I getting any benefit from morning fasting even if I am not following LCHF? (I eat daily a small amount of carbs and my blood sugar and fasting insulin are ok-i will post in a separate thread). Julie if I go too deep into Ketosis (multiple days at 16+ hours of fasting, I think the increase in uric acid production from KB production-or possible oxalate dumping (thank you, gut damaged by antibiotic use history=dysbiosis and oxalate issues) So if I go over 16 hours my bladder is very unhappy.
3,4 but no family history of Altzheimers. However, mother likely had CIRS
