Deans' stroke musings

Changing stroke rehab and research worldwide now.Time is Brain!Just think of all the trillions and trillions of neurons that DIE each day because there are NO effective hyperacute therapies besides tPA(only 12% effective). I have 493 posts on hyperacute therapy, enough for researchers to spend decades proving them out. These are my personal ideas and blog on stroke rehabilitation and stroke research. Do not attempt any of these without checking with your medical provider. Unless you join me in agitating, when you need these therapies they won't be there.

What this blog is for:

Shortly after getting out of the hospital and getting NO information on the process or protocols of stroke rehabilitation and recovery I started searching on the internet and found that no other survivor received useful information. This is an attempt to cover all stroke rehabilitation information that should be readily available to survivors so they can talk with informed knowledge to their medical staff. It's quite disgusting that this information is not available from every stroke association and doctors group.

Executive functioning and dietary intake: Neurocognitive correlates of fruit, vegetable, and saturated fat intake in adults with obesity

For your doctor and nutritionist to use to come up with diet protocols. For stroke prevention, stroke recovery, high blood pressure relief, dementia prevention. All 4 are needed; Why the hell has your doctor done nothing?

In the current study, researchers inspected the relationship between executive functioning and consumption of saturated fat, fruits, and vegetables in an overweight/obese sample utilizing behavioral measures of executive function and dietary recall. Further research is required to decide causality as diet and executive functioning may bidirectionally impact each other.
  • Total 190 overweight and obese adults finished neuropsychological evaluations measuring intelligence, planning ability, and inhibitory control followed by 3 dietary recall evaluations within a month prior to beginning a behavioral weight loss treatment program.
  • Inhibitory control and two of the three indices of planning each independently significantly predicted fruit and vegetable intake such that those with better inhibition and planning ability consumed more fruits and vegetables.
  • No connection was found between executive functioning and saturated fat intake.
  • Results increase understanding of how executive functioning influences eating behavior in overweight and obese adults, and recommend the significance of including executive functioning training components in dietary interventions for those with obesity.
