      Monster energy drinks have taurine.
      When I drink monster energy drinks I can feel my heart acting weird.
      When I drink coffee, I don't really experience any unpleasant sideeffects in my heart.
      Why are monster energy drinks deadlier? Is it the dose?

    Low fat vegan diet is the only diet clinically shown to reverse heart disease

      Huh. The most expensive, lowest fat, testosterone sapping diet is the one that reverses heart disease? I wonder who funded this research?

        It's not expensive. But also nut surprising that low test low fat is good for heart health. There is a tradeoff between test and heart health.

          90% of vegans spend exorbitant amounts of money on meme foods - maybe 10% do it right and prepare whole foods, but they still pay out the ass to do so. Beyond this they eat processed grains and sugars to meet caloric needs, both of which are inflammatory.
          I can find research that postulates that low fat diets increase risk of cardiovascular disease.
          My thought is that if you don't get enough fat in your diet, your body needs to store it; eventually storing it on the heart.
          The real enemies of the heart is processed sugars and not enough fat.

          Low test is linked to heart problems, that's why t is prescribed to older patients

      not true imo, despite it's "clinically shown" status. i see no resounding proof that things like dietary fats/lard/meat result in such substances accumulating in the arteries/heart. anecdotally, i didn't commit to such a diet and have had improvements. doesn't mean my experience will be the same experience for everyone, though.

      What is the healthiest diet for heart health?

      Assuming I don’t care about muscle and other things.

      you want to focus on your arterial health. this can mean many things depending on your current state (i encourage you to dyor regarding this), but for me it meant reducing arterial stiffness by not smoking, eating foods high in nitric oxides at least once per day, and starting out my runs at a slower pace before getting to my higher sustained paces. the last one in particular had a strong effect on chest pains (angina) i felt while starting cardio - i wasn't giving my arteries enough time to dilate properly before making them work so hard. i believe rolling 48 hour fasts help too, i tend to do it once every two weeks or so. during the refueling/refeeding meal in between the fasts, i try to eat low carb in order to maximize the benefits insulin sensitivity.

      from what i understand regarding this, arterial stiffness leads to plaque buildup and eventual arterial stenosis that deprives the cardiomyocyte (heart cells) of oxygen. so you want to keep them from getting stiff while younger so you don't have to deal with calcified arteries when you're older. speaking of calcium, you may find this study interesting:

      https://heart.bmj.com/content/108/12/964
      "Supplemental calcium with or without vitamin D is associated with lower survival and greater AVR in elderly patients with mild-moderate AS."
      AVR=aortic valve replacement, AS = arterial stenosis

      pls correct me on anything i've said if you think it's wrong

                This is what makes keto/carnivores ridiculous, the insistence that the meme diet is perfect and that there aren’t any downsides and the subsequent nutritional conspiracy theories. ffs the cholesterol from carnivore can be easily stopped from causing harm by taking a statin. You literally get to have your meat cake and eat it. It’s akin to a vegan pretending b12 deficiency doesn’t exist instead of taking the damn supplement and carrying on with their diet.

            "Plaque is made up of deposits of fatty substances, cholesterol, cellular waste products, calcium, and fibrin"

            I believe repeated stress causes the buildup to occur, it's like a layer of sediment that is healed over (and over and over). That's why many people nowadays focus on lowering inflammation when possible by avoiding foods that cause it. It's also caused/accelerated by various stuff that gets into your blood that shouldn't really be there, like particles from smoke/vape juices/alcohol/who knows what else.

            Anywho, I think that a low fat vegan diet may help in such cases because there is just less in the blood to end up getting lodged in place since you are basically fasting anyway. So more suitable as a last measure. I personally wouldn't recommend anyone try to adapt to a lifestyle of being fasted/vegan as often as possible unless you're trying to get rid of cancer, but I'm not a doctor either.

            Inflammation/oxidation is caused by a host of uncontrollable variables, including;
            > General aging
            > Emotional stress
            > Illness
            > Injury

            A true heart healthy diet is one that contains minimal constitutes of arteriosclerosis (cholesterol and saturated fat) and is anti-inflammatory in nature (lots of plants)

              I'm not so sure of that conclusion, largely because many plants are in fact inflammatory. Furthermore, just because there's an abundance of chloesterol/saturated fat in your diet/blood doesn't mean that it is the reason plaque consisting of general cellular debree is accumulating. I totally do believe that some nutrients from certain types of plants could help reverse damage or treat cell walls that are becoming stiff.

              >"Plaque is made up of deposits of fatty substances, cholesterol, cellular waste products, calcium, and fibrin"
              calcium is the leading cause of all artery plaque.
              it binds both to itself abundantly and just about anything else binds to calcium also.
              which is why kidney stones form.
              take k2 calcium diminishes in blood and the body can start healing the plaque issue.

              I don't feel comfortable commenting much on just how much calcemic levels effect the heart because I don't even understand the role of everything in my pic rel (aside from broadly knowing of the general exchange of intracellular magnesium, calcium, sodium, and potassium). I do recall reading, however, that you should not take calcium supplements unless specifically instructed to by a cardiologist/doctor because of what you said. I've also read that forms of vitamin K (mk7) in combination with D + a long-chain fat-rich diet can potentially help create an environment that supports decalcification.

                Your picture is of the mechanism and physiology of cardiac muscle cells polarising/depolarising and contracting due to electrolyte exchange not the general accumulation and hardening (calcification) of fats in the coronary arteries.

    Atherosclerosis (aka the blockages in your arteries that cause heart attacks and impaired oxygen delivery to the myocardium) are made of cholesterol.

    Conventional nutritional medicine recommends a diet very low in cholesterol so that your body does not create these atherosclerotic plaques.

    Many on IST disagree with this recommendation.

        Correct. Saturated fat raises cholesterol. Your study even states this.
        >However, there is an ample evidence that saturated fatty acids and trans-fats increase cardiovascular disease risk. The fact that dietary cholesterol is common in foods that are high in saturated fatty acids might have contributed to the hypothesis that dietary cholesterol is atherogenic.

        What foods are high in saturated fat? Animal based foods and coconut oil.

        Her methodology re cholesterol is not great lad.

        She mentions how meta-analysis concluded there was an effect (and informed subsequent guidelines) but goes “oh but this RCT says otherwise” the ones she mentioned either had very brief study periods or a very low number of participants. There was also a weird part where she focused on very specific sub groups not showing an increase in serum cholesterol rather than the general studied population.

    Make sure you supplement vitamin k2
    You are almost certainly deficient in this vitamin if you live in a western country. Its role is to activate enzymes that deposit calcium into your bones. With this deficiency, you will instead get calcificiation of other tissues including blood vessels and heart valves. K2 deficiency has already been linked with cardiovascular causes of death (especially when the deficient patient is also taking calcium supplements). These findings can be extrapolated to assume that K2 deficiency also has a role in early onset dementia, where calcification within the brain is a common finding on imaging.
