You know, I was thinking the exact same thing about the shift in attitude here! I think that "What I gave up" thread has touched a lot of women here. We've all made so many sacrifices because we didn't feel good enough. It was for nothing. Right now I'm the weight I always feared to be, and I actually don't care anymore. I no longer have to worry about maintaining a certain weight, ha! You know I've gained 14lbs and not one person has noticed? I told two friends over the weekend and they both responsed the same way: "Oh. Well, you must have been too thin before!" I'm starting to just see that I am just a normal weight woman with an hour glass figure. I don't have the energy to keep fighting myself to look like a marathon runner.

"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."
