Ate only twice yesterday, 3 eggs and bacon, then my Greek yogurt combo that I just love. Did my slow jog and this morning: a new low weight 192.6 – what a difference reducing diet soda makes. And I slept mostly through the night.
I follow professor Tim Noakes, MD and some others on Twitter. Dr Noakes retweets things a lot – and this is the source of my “Twitter” related comments.
More and more pushing the idea of low carbs to reduce cancer. And to a lessor extent, they talk about auto-immune disease and the effect of plants on it. My reading of Sarah Ballantyne, PhD (Paleo Mom) and my own experience strongly suggest that plant allergy mediates a lot of problems. In my case, I suspect nightshades affects me: that includes my beloved eggplant as well as tomatoes. I remember telling clients their pets demanded the very thing they were allergic to. Why? it sets off a cortisone reaction and makes you feel good for a while. Cortisone kills brain cells.

Yes. Ask people iike
@SBakerMD @MikhailaAleksis Cutting all plants from the diet has put some cases of auto-immune disease into remission. I suspect this is the next great breakthrough (after T2DM “reversal”) that will flow from the LCHF global movement. See also #AlessioFasanoMD
Dr Noakes also quotes “Cancer Council Vic” who put up this graphic:
No studies quoted yet, maybe Paleo Mom has some more substantial backing?
