Within our community, stimulating discussions are happening as members delve into the impact of the ketogenic diet on LDL cholesterol levels and its connection to insulin resistance. Valuable insights and support have been shared regarding dietary preparation for colonoscopies and gastroscopies. The question of whether reducing carbs alone is adequate for weight loss, especially for those with low fasting insulin, has ignited lively conversations, fostering a wealth of knowledge and diverse perspectives within our community.

In addition to these engaging discussions, we recently hosted a Coaching Workshop and Q&A session designed to help our members excel in their coaching careers.

To delve deeper into TCR this October, Sarah Rice has just enriched the community platform with the latest Research Roundup for the month. In the realm of metabolic health and therapeutic carbohydrate restriction, several studies with a focus on women’s health have been unveiled. Among these studies is a significant exploration of the metabolic consequences of sustained ketosis and short-term ketosis suppression in healthy women. The findings reveal that sustained ketosis does not have any adverse health effects, and it preserves metabolic flexibility.

Furthermore, a noteworthy number of recent papers have been published in the field of neurometabolic psychiatry, with a specific emphasis on bipolar disorder and alcohol use disorder. A special edition of the Lifestyle Medicine Journal shines a spotlight on the significance of community and social relationships in individual health and well-being. This compilation of papers challenges us to advocate for a shift from merely managing ill health to actively improving health, while recognizing the interdependence of social relationships and healthcare.
