As someone who watched a bedridden mother die of Alzheimer’s, I have a deep personal interest in preventing this disease in my family. As such, I am always alert for leading-edge information on how to prevent this terrible illness.
Before my diet, I had been consuming almost a quart of buttermilk stuffed with corn chips every day. Add to that diet colas, other crackers and chips, and the daily oatmeal my doctor told me to eat, and it should be clear I was on a dangerous path. Once information about a low-carb, high-fat, gluten-free lifestyle was put before me, I instantly realized this was the information I had been waiting for.
I went to an olive oil store and bought a bottle, started eating grass-fed beef, eliminated grains, switched to green tea, and bought some stevia for (occasional) sweetening. I’ve also begun to eat more organic greens (daily in fact).
Previously, I also suffered from arthritis in my joints, especially at night when the pain woke me up several times. If a change in sleep pattern is any evidence that this diet is working, then it is worth it to me for that reason only. It has only been six weeks, and the change is already AMAZING!!!
