RE: Keto & fasting 2 – being metabolically flexible, and how this ties in with what our ancestors ate
Great job putting this all together @kiwideb,
Two amazing insights here:
unless we deliberately choose to fast, autophagy never takes place
Alzheimers Disease is now being called Type 3 diabetes. That’s because the brain cells have become to resistant to insulin, and now the sugars can’t get in to fuel the brain.
The first I recognized as I see the average body size in South Korea increase in with much more than height.
The second I was not aware of by now. In college I studied about how prions changed the Beta Protein structure that influenced degenerative disorders like Alzheimers disease. People were blaming it on eating "bad" beef but I thought there was something more that was making this protein plates change. That was 1997 and I haven't read much about it since but now I can see how a healthy autophagy metabolism would decrease Alzheimers symptoms.
