    "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."

    quick caution on progesterone -- don't take the creams. Take the pure bio-identical progesterone in oil only. Progesterelle is one such brand and all it has is oil and progesterone. The creams contain xeno-estrogens, often parabens, and are not healthy.

    This is what my wife uses:

    good article, thank you. It's something I'm researching now as I want to make sure that my diet is working long term. The anti-vlc people say that people like me will have elevated cortisol and messed up thyroids and it's only a matter of time. I don't think this is true but I want to really figure it out.

    Pro-gest cream is paraben-free and I have used it with some small success for perimenopausal symptoms, pre-Primal.

    Yeah, there is a lot of misinformation/mythology out there. I am not concerned at all about being in long-term vlc/ketosis after all my reading.

    I'm reaching that point myself...

    Wow, long break in posting my food!

    We had a great 4th with friends. Hung out at a lake, swam with the doggies, ate yummy food...

    We had green chile pork that day and some outrageously good margaritas, all courtesy my amazing DH. And they adored my chocolate butter!

    I think I mentioned the poutine already...then on Sun we had some mediocre BBQ at the Boise Sesquicentennial celebration and a small amount of potato salad. I think that was enough of a carb-up for me!

    Monday food:
    Tea w/cream, pork broth,
    Pastured Pork chop w/duck eggs, limeade
    Raw goats kefir
    Cheese, chocolate butter

    Got our hands on some raw goats milk from a small producer in town. We have a weekly pick-up until they lay off milking in the fall. Made kefir last week and this week I am going to attempt soft cheese. Very excited!

    It's really yummy!

    Nah, I'm lazy! I start it with about 1 part storebought kefir to 4 parts raw milk. Then I save a bit of the homemade kefir and use it to start the next batch. I can do this about 4-5 times, then the grains are exhausted. I don't strain out the kefir grains, we just make it into smoothies.
