I've got a smallish waist and reasonably long legs, so high waisted mini skirts are my secret weapon They cover the top of the thighs, breeze over the hips, and taper in at the waist. I also like black leggings... And dresses. But I can't wear baggy ones cos they just make me look big.

Oh, I've already been cycling calories for a week or two: thats the problem My fat intake is under 40gs per day. Protein is usually 100gs or more (cottage cheese, fish etc). Carbs vary a lot, depending on how much I eat...

You know, I've tried the positive thinking thing for years, but I never really got it. I would focus so hard on thinking positively that I would make myself deluded! I think the difference is that it's better not to think at all - to just feel that you're in a safe space, where things are going to work out. My colleague described it as "a rich space" and I thought that was perfect!

"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."
