We see much of the same damage in TBI as we do in Alzheimer’s, which Is primarily a diet and lifestyle problem.

If you enlarge the image and zoom in, it looks more like a carton of milk and not a water bottle.

Dear people advertising jobs where the RD certification is required: Please stop advertising the job as "NUTRITIONIST," and specify "DIETITIAN" instead, so I stop wasting my time clicking on your ads.

I feel like a lot of people say BG or insulin "spike," because they are unaware that there are normal, healthy, physiological rises in these things that are not pathological or damaging. I feel like sometimes people freak out when their BG goes up 15 points after a large meal...

I honestly don't know what to think anymore, other than I clearly need to get out of this business, at least for a little while, until I understand this better.

But for example, reports that certain proteins make her feel almost as if she ingested a huge bolus of carbs -- feels exhausted, mentally foggy. She's gotten good results from sticking to specific protein sources in smaller amounts at each meal.

To be honest, it's getting very difficult to advise people, because I'm hearing so many different things. But maybe ppl should be more specific when they report BG rises. Their idea of a "spike" (loathe that word) is probably different from mine.

Right, but it does seem that some ppl have a larger rise in BG post-large protein bolus than we would expect -- as if glucagon response is overshooting the insulin response, so ultimately the BG rises substantially.
