Just wanted to let you know I’ve updated two tabs on the site:
In case anyone’s new here, I am the author of the book, The Alzheimer’s Antidote: Using a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet to Fight Alzheimer's Disease, Memory Loss, and Cognitive Decline.
I’ve done a bunch of interviews about the book and the concept in general – that Alzheimer’s disease is a metabolic problem – one the scientific literature regularly refers to as “type 3 diabetes,” or “brain insulin resistance.”
On the Alzheimer’s tab, you can find links to all my published articles and blog posts, as well as links to some of my favorite scientific papers on Alzheimer’s.
Podcasts & Videos
If you’ve been reading the blog for a while but have never heard my voice or seen what I look like (other than the photo on the blog), you can check me out in these videos and podcasts. You’ll notice differences in my face and general appearance, depending when the various videos were recorded. That’s what trying to figure out your thyroid will do to you! Swollen looking in one video, down 15 pounds in another only a few months later. The info in this one is great, but my thyroid-related weight gain had reared its head again. In my opinion, I look best in this one and this one.)
For those of you who are familiar with prominent low carb physician and researcher Eric Westman, MD, I’ve recorded two videos for his Adapt Your Life Program, one on Alzheimer’s, and one called “Keto Sense and Nonsense.” The latter one goes hand-in-hand with this blog post I wrote about keeping low carb and keto simple, and how UNcomplicated they really are. (If you’re interested in the blog series on insulin I mention during the Alzheimer’s video, you can check it out here.)
Another video I’d like to share with you is a webinar I did for the Irish Institute of Nutrition & Health. It’s a bit long – about 2 hours – but it’s the most detailed and informative presentation I’ve ever given. (I’ve given this talk, called “Nourish Your Neurons,” at professional conferences.) There’s a Q&A for the last approximately 40 minutes. I recommend watching through to the end, because there’s some good extra information during that time. You can download and save the file here (it’s a very large file), or simply watch it here.
Posts for KetoDiet
I’m happy to announce I’ve joined the writing team at Martina Slajerova’s KetoDiet/KetoDiet App. I am humbled to be part of this team, as I am in the company of people I deeply respect, including Franziska Spritzler, Bill Lagakos, Emily Maguire, and other nutrition professionals.
If you’re not familiar with Martina, she’s an AMAZING and prolific recipe developer and all-around good person. She has several great keto cookbooks out, not to mention all the fabulous recipes available for free on her website. (I reviewed The KetoDiet Cookbook here, and the Sweet & Savory Fat Bombs cookbook here.)
Three of my articles have been published so far:
- Can a Ketogenic Diet Help People with Acid Reflux?
- Is Alzheimer’s a Metabolic Disease? (part 1)
- The Ketogenic Diet for Alzheimer’s Disease (part 2)
There will be several more articles in the coming months, including basic ones on things like meal prep and dining out on low carb/keto, and some that are a bit more in-depth on insulin resistance and associated metabolic dysfunction.
The best way to stay up to date on my latest publications, podcasts, other interviews, and public appearances (yes, I do occasionally leave the house and interact with other humans!) is to follow me on Twitter: https://twitter.com/TuitNutrition.
P.S. I’m working on three new posts that I’m very excited about. Lots of fascinating stuff to talk about. I think they’ll blow your mind, just like they did mine. They’re a bit in-depth, though, so they’re going to take a while to write. I’ll be posting some less heavy-hitting stuff in the meantime, but just know that some really good and educational stuff is on the horizon. Y’all know that what I love about the blog is that when I learn new things that change the way I see insulin, type 2 diabetes, obesity, cancer, and more, I get to share those insights with you!
