I can understand that things are tough and you feel like you're going backwards. I really started to get scared about all this N=1 stuff when I saw my cholesterol. This is the reality: we're all fiddling around in the dark. We haven't found what works for us. The important thing is not to deviate off course too much. I think it's important that the changes from now on are small so that you dont shock your body any more.
Be really, really gentle with yourself. If you have energy, do an hour in the garden - not a day. Do you ever meditate? Do you like music? Hugs! (<----seriously, I should just get that word tattooed on my head. Or at least put it as my avatar )
"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."
