Did you know that Alzheimer’s disease is the sixth leading cause of death in the U.S.?
I am sure you know of or someone who is effected by this debilitating disease.
This fatal and progressive condition destroys brain cells, resulting in memory loss and severe thinking and behavioral problems.
Alzheimer’s patients may experience aggression, delusions, and hallucinations that interfere with daily life and activities.
The cause used to be a mystery.
That is, until recently.
The pathways that cause Type 2 diabetes are very similar to Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.
There is a growing body of research that suggests there is a connection between these diseases and the foods you eat.
Alzheimer’s has even been renamed as “type 3 diabetes” by some.
You may think of insulin as keeping your blood sugar levels in a healthy range. But it also has to do with brain signaling.
In an animal study in 2012 the researchers were able to cause dementia by interrupting the correct signaling to the brain.
What is most important for you to understand is the low fat fad you have been on all your life may be causing more problems for you. It is the worse recommendation to limit the one nutrient you, and your brain need most in your diet, FAT.
No wonder one in eight people 65 and older are living with Alzheimer’s disease. That is about 5.4 million Americans.
This is an epidemic that is expected to grow to 16 million by 2050.
But don’t just go on a low carb diet, there is more to this than that.
You see MOST low carb diets are promoting high protein as a replacement for the carbs.
But a high fat low carb diet is completely different animal than a high protein low carb diet and often causes confusion by the public and the researchers when doing studies and publishing results as if all low carb diets are the same.
It seems to becoming clearer today that people are eating too much low quality protein and carbs and not enough healthy fats.
What makes more sense is your diet should be made up of good fats, limited amount of good proteins like organic grass-fed beef, pastured organic eggs and chicken, and wild caught fish. Along with a low amount of carbs from organic vegetables.
