Re: My version of a Ketogenic Diet

Great post, Juliegee! Your diet looks much like mine. I eat lots of salads, cruciferous vegetables, asparagus, EVOO, coconut oil. I sometimes eat 85% chocolate too. :-) I limit my protein intake. (My target is 1 g per pound of lean body mass.) I fast for 16+ hours each day. Some differences: - I don...

Re: Resistant Starch

I added RS (Bob's Red Mill Unmodified Potato Starch) to my ketogenic diet for two weeks a couple of months ago. Thankfully, the resulting stinky gas and constipation went away as soon as I stopped.

Re: merouleau intro

I wasn't tracking what I ate at that time, so this is a guess based on what I learned later by tracking everything on MyFitnessPal: 25% carbohydrates, 25% protein, 50% fat. By the time of the test, I had already cleared the industrial seed oils and processed foods from my diet. I also had lost my re...

Re: Things Here That May Lower Our Amyloid Burden

These are all fascinating. Here are two more Acetyl-l-carnitine (ALCAR) studies of interest. Note that L-acetyl-carnitine (LAC) and acetylcarnitine (ALC) are identical to ALCAR. Also, don't confuse ALCAR/LAC/ALC with L-carnitine which is a different substance rather than another synonym. Confused ye...

Re: Best type of exercise for ε4s

Fascinating commentary article, Juliegee - thanks! I found the emphasis on daily activity to be particularly helpful. I have been feeling pretty good about my three weekly 75-90 minute ice hockey sessions, but my Polar Loop step counts for the other four days have been pathetic ! I sit most of the d...

Re: merouleau intro

Thanks for the kind welcomes! SusanJ, thanks for the heads up regarding potential interactions of exercise with ApoE4 status. I see a discussion on that topic in the Nutrition/Exercise area. Juliegee, I'm glad to see that I'm not the only ApoE4 who is interested in the ketogenic diet. And as a fan o...

merouleau intro

Hi, I'm 51 and 3/4 with no symptoms yet. My 3/4 father is 73 and after a number of years with "mild cognitive impairment" has been reevaluated recently to "moderate" status. One of my four biological children, age 21, is 3/4 also. (I have one adopted child who, thankfully, is 3/3...
