Calcium

I am having the hardest time of getting the standard 1200 mg of calcium recommended for those of us over 60 years old on 1300 calories (for weight loss) without supplements (cardiologist advises against supplements) and without dairy!!!! And I am in osteoporosis now, so I'm really in need of a solut...

Re: Food Restrictions Questions

She is worth waiting for. I have been working with integrative docs for over 15 years for a couple of different complicated diseases in our family, and she is hands-down the best. If it were me, I'd get my name on the list. I left my name and her office said they'd call in a week or so. But I'll le...

Re: Food Restrictions Questions

Re. lectins, Dr. Bredesen is more lenient than Dr. Gundry and encourages folks to minimize them if they are sensitive or have autoimmune conditions. Interestingly, lots of antioxidants are found in the parts of the food with higher lectins, (almond skins being one example) so it's a balancing act. ...

Re: KetoFLEX 12/3 meal delivery will soon be available

Got the email about it and went to the website, as I am very interested in trying this. Disappointed that I cannot see a line up of individual meals for our program (or pick and choose them) like a customer can on many of these prepared meal delivery companies......unless I just didn't know how to a...

Re: Food Restrictions Questions

My frustration is in figuring out why I lost some weight, but cannot budge the rest I need to lose to be in a healthy range. A couple things you might look at. You mentioned feeling stressed. Cortisol will definitely impact your metabolism, as will thyroid issues. Perhaps you can work with your doc...

Re: Food Restrictions Questions

Not all Apollo members carry an ApoE4 allele, and for the Apollo members who are 3/3's, saturated fats like butter or coconut oil are not as big an issue as they might be for 4/4's. Substituting olive oil or avocado oil might be a better path for the ApoE4/4s. If you read the Apollo materials, they...

Re: Food Restrictions Questions

Yes, I have seen some of your other posts and remember especially one where you said that you were tired of people telling you that you must be eating more than you think. I get it now. Some people were telling me that I was undereating, so I downloaded chronometer as the first step in the process ...

Re: Food Restrictions Questions

If I remember correctly, in the first book, Dr. Bredesen said that of the people he was treating, no one was doing the whole program perfectly. Food is just one part of it. I have also had a very hard time with the strict food protocol, as I have posted in the past. Based upon responses, I think th...

Re: Food Restrictions Questions

Thank you for your honesty in sharing feelings most, if not all of us, have had. We should never apologize for having questions. Our health and happiness may depend on our asking questions and believing that what works for one of us may not work for all of us. Nancy, So much gratitude for your grac...

Re: Food Restrictions Questions

Jan18, I share your frustration. I have thought about just giving up altogether. As far as I can see there is no clear path ahead so why bother. Hi Lindy! See Nancy's inspiration below, for one response. :) And from me, I sometimes feel like giving up and fall off of the diet wagon (mostly because ...
