More on Alzheimer’s, High Carb diets and Insulin

Written By Dave  |  Blog  |  0 Comments

This came across my Facebook feed today. It goes right along with what I wrote to you about last week; high carb diets are a direct cause of Alzheimer’s.

One more reason to cut your carb intake from sugars and starches down to under grams per day. That is still a lot of carbs though. 4 grams of sugar or starchy carbs equals 1 teaspoon, so 100 grams of carbs is the equivalent of 25 teaspoons of sugar!

If you know someone suffering from Alzheimer’s get them to change their diet and you should see a lessening of symptoms fairly soon. As the glycogen levels in the blood and in storage are used up and not replaced, insulin resistance goes down which means it is less difficult to clear the glucose from the bloodstream and easier to remove to remove the plaques and tangles in the brain.
