Thanks Derp - you mean the carrot salad? I'm no stranger to it... But I'll make a concerted effort to eat it every day for a while and see what happens. Does it have to be coconut oil?

Thanks for the suggestions Ooooooooombop. Nope, just finishing up TOM. The bloat literally happened after I had dinner, which included a large carrot salad... Bananas don't have any effect on it actually! I do eat a lot... they're so cheap, filling and tasty...

I'm so glad we've got the fitness journal going, cos' now I feel motivated to challenge myself. I suspect it will help with the progesterone levels too. And seriously, I've just gotten to the point where dieting is so fucking boring. It's so nice just to eat what I want, and still be losing (albeit very slowly).

"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."
