Your Brain on Fast-Acting Carbs

Fast-acting carbs – like regular bread – light up the addiction centers in your brain like a Christmas tree:

To avoid this problem, eat mainly slow-acting unprocessed carbs, like vegetables. Plus protein and fat. Also called real food.

    Well, I prefer to reduce carbohydrate intake rather than taking metformin

    Paul, speaking of low-carb and anti-aging, have you heard Dr. Ron Rosedale speak on mTor, surplus carbs/protein and the implications?

    (BTW, is there some way I can communicate directly with you.)

    Hi Murray, thank you for the suggestion, yes I listened to dr Rosdale talk, although personally I have slightly different angle. As I mentioned on this blog numerous times, I do not care what people ate yesterday, 1 year, 10, 1,000, 1 million or 20 million year ago, I look how my body resound to nutrients now. Sending you a link to a paper about ketones and mTOR.
    Absolutely, let's communicate directly, maybe Dietdoctor can give us our respective e-mails incognito?.

    Abstract
    The ketogenic diet (KD) is an effective treatment for epilepsy, but its mechanisms of action are poorly understood. We investigated the hypothesis that the KD inhibits mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) pathway signaling. The expression of pS6 and pAkt, markers of mTOR pathway activation, was reduced in hippocampus and liver of rats fed KD. In the kainate model of epilepsy, KD blocked the hippocampal pS6 elevation that occurs after status epilepticus. Because mTOR signaling has been implicated in epileptogenesis, these results suggest that the KD may have anticonvulsant or antiepileptogenic actions via mTOR pathway inhibition.

    I take Dr. Rosedale's invocation of evolution as more big-picture heuristic and rhetoric.
