Thank you. A low carb diet was mentioned in the article about coconut oil news story also, though not necessarily recommended.
The successes using coconut oil to control Alzheimer’s, according to all I have read, requires a low carb diet. This all works because the combination of coconut oil and low carbs puts the body into ketosis. This allows the nuturing of the brain in such a way that it controls the disease.
Dr Newport puts the coconut oil in her husband’s oatmeal in the morning, but otherwise he is severely restricted on carbs. He gets the coconut oil dosing twice a day.
Similar use of coconut oil and carb restrictions has been used successfully to control/cure insulin resistance (diabetes).
