"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."
- Ray Peat
I've incorporated the oil dose into Primal. Not contradictory since good oils are allowed in the Primal plan.
And I'm not attacking and arguing with people who follow Primal as many here do.
It is fine if people find another way that works for them. They should go there and do that.

Lost 75# eating low carb (20-40 g) and then MDA primal low carb. Tried many other options but only LC helped me lose weight and improve health. Now at a good weight, I find my body can tolerate a few more carbs but rarely go over 100 g.
BTW, that was catty at Janie about the SLD. SLD is just a plan that finds a way to include fat in the diet that works for some people. It's not my cup of tea but it's not at all incompatible with Primal. People going around bragging about their drug use, booze, smoking, candy, pizza, and soda consumption. Now that is incompatible with Primal.
He's not a diet guru, he's a scientist anyone could learn from. Even if your way of eating is the exact opposite of his.
Yoga - that is awesome the new way of eating is working for you! Lately I've been migrating a lot toward a similar diet, minimizing my starch and raising my sugar intake. I still keep PUFA very low, began drinking orange juice, use tons of gelatin, and am looking to add liver and oysters.
Peat is not really that important. He bases all his reasoning on faulty premises and then adds lots of science-y sounding stuff to the chain of logic after that. OK, he is a scientist so he does that well, but a faulty premise undercuts the whole thing.
Having a racing heart rate and a high body temp are not good indicators of health. All the other stuff is about how to achieve that heart thumping hot goal. But if the initial premise doesn't hold water, what is the point?
