I'm loving this thread and I'm really curious to hear how you ladies get on. More power to you all! I've been experimenting with Matt Stone and this kind of refeeding a bit but haven't quite gotten it right. I've just ended up cycling calories cos some days I'm not hungry.
I might share another time, but for now I just wanted to put a theory out there - I notice that when I eat piles of good food, moving requires - and generates - a lot more energy. I feel heavier so it takes more of an effort to get going, but once I get going my movement is much more powerful and explosive. It feels like I'm burning off much more energy.Just a theory, but maybe this is why eating a lot and eating very little amount to pretty much the same result (provided it's good food).
"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."
