Hello lovely lady! Welcome to the fold - happy to have you here And honestly, I'm very touched and honoured that you read all my rantings, and ravings I do think it's amazing though to see the transformation in me over the months. I do see myself taking steps back, but mostly it feels like progress. One-back, two-forward, two-back, three-forward kind of thing.

I actually have very little desire for junk food these days. If I want some I'll eat some good quality ice cream with minimal guilt (it's not good for the waist line but at least it's nutritious and I'm not poisoning myself by eating it).
The Peat way is going really well! It just happened, and I love the foods. Best supplements are definitely gelatine, vitex (for female sex hormones), topical progesterone, liquid vitamin D and Vit B3. I've just started taking Raw thyroid, so we'll see how that goes.
I'm so glad you've taken up yoga - what kind do you do? Hugs
"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."
