I definitely think we could all do with some rage release! Tomorrow I'm going to Muay Thai Kickboxing.
You know what's weird though? Is that since taking the Duphaston / switching to Ray Peat eating, I've become aware of the rage for the first time. I used to be incapable of getting angry and impassioned - kind of prided myself on it. Every now and again I'd get angry, but most of the time I felt flat, or in anguish, and then would binge / drink / take drugs to anethesise myself. In the last month I've become soooo acutely aware of this inner rage that I'm carrying towards the world. It's strange.
Nameless: I've been for quite a lot of therapy. Plus I've read an inordinate amount of self help books, have spent 8 months in India (which is spiritual self help paradise), and have a psychologist sister I love that I get increasing clarity on things; it's just that the pain is never ending. Well, it does feel like it's getting better these days, I hope.
I'm being smart now, but you've heard of the phrase "easier said than done"?

Maybe... We'll see. We've been chatting on the phone, and by text. I enjoy his company. We're meeting again on Wednesday...

"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."
