Risk of developing Alzheimer's disease is increased by older age, genetic factors, and several medical risk factors. Studies have also suggested that dietary and lifestyle factors may influence risk, raising the possibility that preventive strategies may be effective. This body of research is incomplete. However, because the most scientifically supported lifestyle factors for Alzheimer's disease are known factors for cardiovascular diseases and diabetes, it is reasonable to provide preliminary… 
New Perspectives on Alzheimer's Disease and Nutrition.
TLDR
There is consensus among the authors that nutritional deficits, and even states of excess, are associated with AD, but more work is needed to determine cause and effect.
Let Food Be Thy Medicine: Diet, Nutrition, and Biomarkers’ Risk of Alzheimer’s Disease
TLDR
How diet and nutrition modulate risk of AD in cognitively normal individuals, especially those at increased genetic risk, is clarified prior to implementing dietary recommendations for prevention and treatment of disease.
Association between compliance with dietary guidelines and Alzheimer's disease in Korean elderly
TLDR
Investigation of the association between compliance with the “Dietary Guidelines for Elderly” and Alzheimer"s disease among Korean elderly indicates that increasing Compliance with the dietary guidelines could be an effective strategy to decrease the risk of Alzheimer's disease.
Nutrition and cognitive impairment
TLDR
The Mediterranean diet has great interest in this disease, since it ensures a high intake of vegetables, fruits, nuts, legumes, cereals, fish and olive oil, and moderate intake of meat, dairy products and alcohol, and nutritional recommendations for preventing cognitive impairment are made.
Healthy Lifestyles to Reduce Risk of Dementia
TLDR
This chapter provides an overview of research on nutrients and their impact in preventing cognitive decline and Alzheimer’s disease and suggests that a lifespan approach is needed, as some interventions are more successful in midlife, while others, such as physical and cognitive activities, can still be effective in old age.
Dietary Factors and Cognitive Decline.
TLDR
The MeDi and DASH diets offer promising preliminary results, but data are limited and more research in this area is needed.
Consumption of omega-3 supplements to prevent Alzheimer's disease based on Health Belief Model in the elderly
TLDR
It was suggested to design and implement educational interventions based on the Health Belief Model for the elderly in order to prevent AD and the mean omega-3 consumption at low and the moderate levels of knowledge in the elderly.
Omega-3 Fatty Acids in Early Prevention of Inflammatory Neurodegenerative Disease: A Focus on Alzheimer's Disease
TLDR
The role of long chain omega-3 fatty acids in the prevention or delay of cognitive decline in AD in its early stages is supported and the importance of overall quality and composition of the diet to protect against AD and dementia is highlighted.
A Comparison of Lifestyle Interventions for Alzheimer's Disease Extracted from Clinical Notes and Literature
TLDR
The results show that many factors which have been proved to be correlated to AD in the literature have not been well measured in the clinical practice.
Using Multicountry Ecological and Observational Studies to Determine Dietary Risk Factors for Alzheimer's Disease
  • W. Grant
  • Medicine
    Journal of the American College of Nutrition
  • 2016
TLDR
Dietary supply of meat or animal products less milk 5 years before AD prevalence had the highest correlations with AD prevalence in this study, suggesting reducing meat consumption could significantly reduce the risk of AD as well as of several cancers, diabetes mellitus type 2, stroke, and, likely, chronic kidney disease.

Dietary fats and the risk of incident Alzheimer disease.
TLDR
High intake of unsaturated, unhydrogenated fats may be protective against Alzheimer disease, whereas intake of saturated or trans-unsaturated (hydrogenated) fats may increase risk.
Dietary fat composition and dementia risk
TLDR
Several lines of evidence provide support for the hypothesis that high saturated or trans fatty acids increase the risk of dementia and high polyunsaturated or monounsaturated fatty acids decrease risk.
Midlife predictors of Alzheimer's disease.
TLDR
Midlife risk factors for AD are reviewed, the potential for therapeutic intervention in midlife is addressed, and potentially alterable environmental factors influence genetic contributions, providing targets for disease prevention and treatment.
Fat Intake at Midlife and Risk of Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease: A Population-Based Study
TLDR
Moderate intake of unsaturated fats at midlife is protective, whereas a moderate intake of saturated fats may increase the risk of dementia and AD, especially among ApoE Ε4 carriers.
Dietary antioxidants and long-term risk of dementia.
TLDR
Higher intake of foods rich in vitamin E may modestly reduce long-term risk of dementia and AD.
The role of B vitamins in preventing and treating cognitive impairment and decline.
TLDR
The many subtly different hypotheses that investigators have addressed by attempting to link several B-vitamin status indicators to diverse cognition-related outcomes have created a confusing body of conflicting studies that seems to defy summarization.
Low-copper diet as a preventive strategy for Alzheimer's disease
TLDR
The pathways regulating copper homeostasis, the adverse sequelae related to its derangements, the pathogenic mechanism of the AD copper phenotype, indications for a low-copper diet, and future perspectives to improve this preventive strategy are described.
Caloric intake and the risk of Alzheimer disease.
TLDR
Higher intake of calories and fats may be associated with higher risk of AD in individuals carrying the apolipoprotein E epsilon4 allele.

The concept of cognitive reserve provides an explanation for differences between individuals in susceptibility to age-related brain changes or pathology related to Alzheimer's disease, whereby some
