Serenity, I'm currently 12lbs over my normal weight, which happened as a result of a severe relapse into an ED with the transition to Primal eating. I realised that restriction is an absolute disaster for me. So no - no more rules, no more restricting.

With this experience I have gained the belief that if you nourish your body really well everything balances out. You body wants to be healthy and lean: loving yourself, trusting your body, and eating with the rhythms of your appetite will get you there. Sometimes that requires overeating in order to heal.
Now I'm off to play my guitar around the camp fire and hug a few trees...
"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."
