    "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."

    The worst diet advice I've ever heard, and I hear it every day (including here) is

    "Listen to your body".

    Uh...no thanks. My body is a lousy conversationalist. From now on my body is going to listen to me.

    I just boil my eggs in grapefruit juice in order to cut out the middle man.

    SWLA - "Oh, you ate <insert ton of non-primal crap here>? That is okay, just do better tomorrow. Call it your 20%"

    Sure that works if you do it on say Thanksgiving (or another very rare occasion). It does not work if you do it 4 times a week.

    Enabling is not encouragement.

    Ain't that the truth! Listening to my body got me fat in the first place! Now it can listen to me.

    Hahahaha!!! I lost the same amount of wt. doing this too!

    Unfortunately, I also lost about 40 lbs prior to that due to stress and nursing a baby before I signed on the dotted line (right after my mom told my I looked like shit - she's tactfully honest and I love it).

    I DON'T recommend stress for a diet but it could be consider a STUPID way to lose weight for some.

    That remind me of my sister. She's naturally thin but she keeps saying she's going to write a diet book called "Worrying Works" because whenever she's anxious she loses her appetite. She jokingly tells me to have an affair and then the stress of screwing things up with my husband will cause me to be unable to eat so I'll lose weight.

    Well, I guess that'd be one way to do it. Ha!

    Both of my younger sisters are stress eaters and pack on the pounds with it. One of them also gets horrible acne because of it, which must suck when your over 40. I'd rather have my kind of stress if I had a choice.

    Start smoking. You'll be so addicted to having a cigarette in your mouth at all times there won't be any room for food! All the models are doing it!

    J3nn, please chill. I think this thread was meant to be poking light hearted fun at all extreme and silly things such as the cabbage soup diet.
    You poked a little fun at low carb so I poked a little fun at Peatarianism. Don't dish it out if you can't take it.
