That's really interesting: when I was really depressed last winter, all I wanted to eat was rice. Now I'm coming to the conclusion that, unless it's in sushi, I don't do so well on it physically (bloating etc).
Don't know if it affected my mood adversely in the winter, but I do know it didn't make me feel better...
"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."
