I'm of the opinion that you need to understand something before you can change it. Hence I encourage honest dialogue where people can express themselves and not feel they have to follow any kind of prescriptive way of thinking - whether this is limited views on attractiveness, or self-love cliches.
"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."
