Debunking Gary Taubes and The Case for Keto
There’s been at least 8 randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled trials of ginger for pain.
Plant-based helps some. Amla may help (disputable). Generally, Lp(a) blood levels are primarily genetic, and diet only helps some and no FDA approved drug works to lower.
Greger suggests that accepted "average" iron levels are too high. Lower than average could help reduce cancer rates.
After a regimen combining carbohydrates and sucralose, the body’s ability to regulate blood sugar falters.

Additionally, it's important to check the ingredients list on packaged foods for added FODMAPs.
Food companies may add FODMAPs to their foods for many reasons, including as prebiotics, as a fat substitute or as a lower-calorie substitute for sugar.
IGF1 appears to promote/enable cancer. Removing IGF1 leads to reduction in cancer. Meat based diet increases IGF1 produced in liver. Plant based diet reduces IGF1 produced by liver.
Fructose from fruit diminished insulin spike, even when combined with industrial fructose.
Eat heavy meals earlier in the day, stop eating as early in the day as possible, and maintain at least 12 hour gap before eating the next day: leads to weight loss & lower blood pressure & lower heart rate.
"if possible, eat earlier in the day, so now I try to eat dinner early.. at least avoid late night eating. Breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, with or without an early pauper’s dinner would probably best."
30 grams of ground flax daily for a month reduced ocylipin (proinflamatory) significantly.
This was my big takeaway from all the intermittent fasting research I looked at: if possible, eat earlier in the day. So, now I try to eat dinner early (I know that’s not possible for everyone). But most people should at least be able to avoid late night eating whenever possible. Breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, with or without an early pauper’s dinner would probably best.
