I hear what you're saying. Different things work for different people: some people it's enough to follow a diet and they can get the body they want; other people need to heal their relationship with food, and the body follows. I'm the latter, and the worst way of doing that was a restrictive diet.

What are your goals and how far are you from them?
Actually, you just have to check out Zach's journal to see there are a lot of people who benefit from his advice and who greatly appreciate his presence here.

"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."
