You obviously only view muscles in terms of being jacked. You realise not all people have that perspective? A few weeks ago I was with some male friends, and when I picked up a water jug, one of the guys exclaimed that I had "guns". They asked me to flex! I'm not a big girl by any stretch of the imagination, but proportionately my muscle definition is noticeable. Although I suppose these mens' perspectives wouldn't count in your opinion because they don't deadlift, ha.

"I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.
In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."
