You know what though - I don't get that you're obsessive about food + your weight from your posts. Not at all. Maybe you just don't talk about it, but from what I read the bloating is what seems to bother you. I could be totally off with this, but I get the impression that you're preoccupied with "fixing" yourself, as opposed to having a goal with weight etc. In fact, I always admired how you seemed to take the weight in your stride! Maybe you just didn't mention it, or maybe you're feeling anxious over the last few days and you're taking it out on your appearance?

On an unrelated note - fancy going horseback riding in SF??
PS. I also have the jew nose... I would love to get surgery though... (It's my most recent body hate thing.)
"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."
