    That's interesting PB - you mean you think lactose and starch are better than fructose (or sucrose)? I'm currently working more carbs back in and I'm naturally gravitating to greek yogurt and rice.

    You poor sweetie, you must be worn out. I think you should develop a nasty case of the I-want-to-get-some-rest flu and take about three days and just sleep/eat/repeat.

    They are celebrities... they are having skin treatments and peels in professional skin care/ plastic surgeons offices.

    I like a bit of honey too but safe starch is way superior for spiking insulin and helping me build muscle and strength. Fructose has never come close to satisfying me or making me feel so calm, contented and energised as safe starch has. Fructose is great for boosting my immune system when I'm coming down with an infection, as it is so inflammatory.

    Well, it was actually a joke, but I work in TV and you can see immediately the celebs that are getting work done. Keanu Reeves looks pretty natural.

    I can't believe I didn't consider that eating inflammatory foods could actually be beneficial. That makes a lot of sense.

    Yes, milk sugar is happily fructose free.

    Fructose is 100 times as inflammatory and as carcinogenic as glucose. It has to be detoxed by the liver - or guzzled up by cancer cells. Anyone on a low-carb diet is doomed to obtaining the vast majority of their carbs from fructose (or cellulose if they count that) in order to obtain adequate antioxidants from plant sources.

    White rice offers safe carbs with relatively low nutrient value (and only slightly better than coconut oil and butter as /empty calories') - not a problem so long as the rest of your intake consists of highly nutritious foods and you are not on a chronic low-calorie diet.

    Yeah, acid peels and such skin treatments leave a natural look, not like the heavier procedures. They just freshen up the skin and keep the actors looking younger, wrinkles finer, less age spots and blemishes... all of that. That's what I was referring to.

    +1 for getting off of the shifts and sorting your sleep out. Yes a good diet can help reduce the damage shift work/disrupted sleep causes, but even Robb Wolf has said that really he could've just called his book "Sleep, ya big dummy!".

    Of course, you could always try these too

    Totally forgot about iron. Get your iron levels as that can definitely have an effect on accelerated aging. As far as starch and fruit they will take at least a week or 2 before your gut adapts to the change. It took me a few weeks from what I can remember.
