I have been an fitness enthusiast, all my life. I have competed in ironmans, road races, marathons, ultra races (100milers) and, bodybuilding events.
My diet has been on both sides of the coin, for 15 years I was eating a low fat vegetarian diet and eating high fat low carb diet. The vegetarian diet was to enhance my endurance sports endeavors. Then I can transitioned and moved on to more of bodybuilding diet of high protein and high carb and low fat.
Around 1995 I switched over to a Paleo diet more of HFLC to support more of my strength workouts and aging, less inflamation.. So thats where I have been till I find out that I have Apoe4 gene, 3/4. THe results made me question if I was eating the correct diet for myself.
Now after a year of researching, (Primer and this site), books, articles, podcasts, I have switched to mostly plant diet with wild caught salmon and sardines, lots of olive oil, nuts and leafy greens with time restricted eating protocol. Along with quite a few supplements.
I have not yet shown any symptons of AD or CVD. I still weigh the same as high school but with much more muscle. But I do want to stay ahead of game.
I think my exercise routines for the last 40 years have been the most important part of my protocol. Its the one thing that has remained constant.
I still lift weights 5 days a week every morning before work and run/walk an hour after work. On the weekends the runs go much longer (2 hrs) depending on what I am trainng for but at least an hour.
My goal is to continue to research, open to change if need be. I am not married to any way of eating or living, I am all about optimization. I have expeirmented with lots of anti aging protocols some that have proved to be useless or maybe even bad.
Things I continue to research and look forward to more data on :
the perfect diet for my epigentics/NAD/MCT Oil/Metformin/peptides/sarcopeia/protein/alcohol consumption/
items I continue to monitor at this time
fasting insulin, blood lipids, glucose, Thyroid, B12 levels, ferritin levels, CRP, sex hormones, vitamin levels
Love this site!
