Alzheimer’s Disease direct link to Metabolic Syndrome

The Journal of American Medical Association is stating there is scientific evidence linking glucose hypometabolism in the brain, the inability of the brain to get the fuel it needs due to insulin resistance.  However the brain can use another source of fuel, ketones from fat.  The effective treatment of type 2 diabetes will reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s and dementia.  A ketogenic lifestyle/diet reverses type 2 diabetes meaning it reduces insulin resistance and provides the brain with another source of fuel.

Alzheimer’s and dementia prevention is the main reason I made the commitment to live the ketogenic lifestyle.  I can not think of a worse disease that you could get that not only affects you but your family in a devastating way.  Given my love for my family, I would do anything to prevent Alzheimer’s / dementia.  How about you?

Dinner – Example

People want to know some examples of what I eat.  Today, Sunday, December 9, 2018, for dinner we decided not to cook since it was late and put together this quick dinner.  I have been on the Keto lifestyle for a while.  My plate size has been reduced.  Most of the time now I use a sandwich plate, full at it is, it is the amount of food that is fulling which is one of the significant changes since eating this way.  I also like the flavors and look forward to eating where I appreciate each bite more.

Here is what is included on the plate.
  • ArugulaExample of dinner
  • Jarlsberg Cheese
  • Onion
  • Avocado
  • Zucchini twirls
  • Pasta sauce
  • Pesto
  • Pepper
  • Good Season dressing

On a smaller plate, I feel satisfied and full.  No bloating or feeling tired.
