Re: Uric Acid concerns

I've been on a keto diet for over a year but within the past six months, I have been having gout flare-ups. I'd love to add carbs but just read that a new study says carbs are our worst enemy. Well, it seems "everything in moderation" is a good rule of thumb. I plan to add a few carbs even...

Re: 4/4 diet confusion

Big confusion!!! Everyone keeps talking about meat being ok as long as it's grass-fed, pasture-raised, etc. However, isn't our basic problem an inability to dispose of cholesterol? If so, how can we eat any meat---or egg yolks? Is there no cholesterol in grass-fed, pasture-raised? I definitely get a...

Re: Keto Diet Ratios

Thank you so much for your wise observations. A good reminder that each situation and gene expression is unique---even though we share the APOE 4/4 variant. Our forum likely will be my best resource for a more balanced and informed viewpoint.

Re: Welcome!!!

Hi. I am 68 years old, and I found out that I'm APOE 4/4 last spring after searching for reasons for my increasing allergic/inflammatory reactions to first, dairy, at about age 30, then sweets, and finally grains. I hoped I wouldn't have Celiac Disease like my uncle who died from late-life complicat...

Re: Keto Diet Ratios

Thanks for your help. I'll post something about myself at another location but will add this: I can't be slack! I'm 68!

Re: Keto Diet Ratios

Really? A major study I read says that APOE 4/4 should maintain a low-fat, low-carb diet. So, I wonder, what else is left except proteins? Help!
