Some on this forum may have already done that, so they may chime in with their findings/ recommendations. All the best!
Makes sense. Thank you.

Just about finished with Dr. Satchin Panda's The Circadian Code: Lose Weight, Supercharge Your Energy, and Transform Your Health from Morning to Midnight. Fascinating read on the bodies many clocks and how they affect your health. Timely for me, with it's focus on sleep.

Just downloaded and installed a program mentioned - f.lux, which will adjust your computer screen as it nears bedtime.

Here's Dr. Rhonda Patrick interviewing Dr. Panda.

Started reading The Ketogenic Bible: The Authoritative Guide to Ketosis (2017), Jacob Wilson, Ryan Lowery. That was a long library wait. No renewals either, as lots of people are waiting to borrow it (or likely the same want to re-borrow it to finish). I've got it for 3 weeks anyway. Very interesting so far.



edit: I'm on chapter 3 - this is a page turner! Great ketogenic timeline. I may actually read this all the way through!

Reading Wheat Belly: Lose the Wheat, Lose the Weight, and Find Your Path Back to Health, William Davis (2011).

Fascinating reading; especially the part about wheat and schizophrenia.

Did a group of powerful men convene a secret Howard Hughesian meeting in 1955, map out an evil plan to mass produce high-yield, low-cost dwarf wheat, engineer the release of government-sanctioned advice to eat "healthy whole grains," lead the charge of corporate Big Food to sell hundreds of billions of dollars wo4rth of processed wheat food products - all lead to obesity and the "need" for billions of dollars of drug treatments for diabetes, heart disease, and all the other health consequences of obesity?

I have felt for sometime like we are sheep being led to the slaughter. My purpose in having a better life and better health is so my children will have a good life and their children , too. I dont see it happening without major change. In years past the people of France rose up and declared " off with their heads" .....will we find our way?

You might also like Tom Naughton's take on the recent "low carb will kill you" study out of Harvard. I didnít add it to that thread as it wandered into libertarian politics more than study rebuttal...but he has many good points as it relates to Grain.

Was it Kellogg, Post or Graham who promoted grains in his "health spas" to calm the libido, keeping people subdued and obedient?

I'm reading DANDR again, 15 years after I first read the book. I love Dr. Atkin's enthusiasm and the simplicity of the induction plan. This time around I intend to follow his advice for ongoing weight loss and maintenance. Hopefully I will keep the weight off permanently.

More recently I read Eat Rich and Live Long, by Ivor Cummins and Jeffrey Gerber. Their main focus is on prevention and reversal of heart disease with a low carb way of eating. This is the first low carb/keto book I've read that describes someone like me - overweight but insulin sensitive, which makes it harder to lose weight. It doesn't help that I'm over 50 and quite short but I am determined.

Yes, but there was nothing new in it and he stole the title from Barry Groves' 2000 book which I prefer. Hyman's is full of testimonials and self-aggrandizement. Back in 2000 Hyman was pushing vegan diets and his old "ultra simple diet" website now redirects to his store website. He is a friend of Dr. Oz and also seems to change his mind with the breeze for a buck.

Reading Dr. Matthew P. Walker's Why We Sleep: Unlocking the Power of Sleep and Dreams (2017). Fascinating, well written book on a subject that I (we) deal with every night.

Starts out with evolutionary sleep, and the animal kingdom. Did not know that birds can sleep with one half their brain hemisphere asleep, and the other awake, with that eye keeping a look out. So one species line up on a branch, with all the birds in between with both side of their brains asleep, and the ones on the ends with one side awake, with that eye keeping watch. They then awake, turn around, and the other side wakes up to keep watch.

from ch 1 2nd para:

Routinely sleeping less than six or seven hours a night demolishes your immune system, more than doubling your risk of cancer. Insufficient sleep is a key lifestyle factor in determining whether or not you will develop Alzheimer's disease. Inadequate sleep - even moderate reductions for just one week - disrupts blood sugar levels so profoundly that you will be classified as prediabetic.

Hi JEY100, While surfing the forum and different posts I found this and used the link to print the article/presentation material. Nice and pertinent info. Good for LC beginners. Just wanted to let you know. Thanks!
