    Coffee is amazing and tastes fanfuckingtastic with cream and sugar. Sugar and cream are both amazing as well. By itself, not so much. There are certain substances that accentuate the flavor of coffee.

    So, here is what you can take away from my post.

    Good:
    Coffee + cream + sugar
    Bad:
    Black coffee
    Ugly:

    Time is passing so quickly. Right now, I feel like complaining to Einstein. Whether time is slow or fast depends on perception. Relativity theory is so romantic. And so sad.

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."

    Interesting perspective. In my mind I have associated all the health improvements that I have experienced with the step I took of eliminating grains. I had almost forgotten that at the same time I totally changed the kinds of fat I eat, mainly because I didn't cook with very much fat beforehand.

    The times I have had a bad reaction - takeaway pizza, fish and chips - I put down to the gluten. But in fact it's entirely possible that hidden bad oils were the culprit instead, or as well. Especially given that I can eat a homemade lasagne with few negative consequences.

    Just wanted to say thanks to everyone who gave advice.

    I personally enjoy my coffee black.

    For everyone who thinks giving up sugar is a bad idea, sorry. I'm not doing it because of Dr. Lustig or Gary Taubes, I'm doing it for personal reasons. I'm not asking everyone else to do it too, just asking advice from the people who have.
