    Let's Talk "Superfoods" Again

    Okay, you can now stop the eye roll. I'm talking about your personal superfoods and/or supplements. The stuff you regularly eat, you like it's taste (supps might be an exception) and you feel it makes you feel good, be healthy and it keeps your weight/body composition in a good place.

    For me those in no particular order are:

    Bananas
    Honey
    Cocoa
    Lean protein from grass-fed ruminants
    Ghee
    Gelatin
    Eggs
    Vit D3

    Currently....

    Food
    Gelatine (and Jello)
    Cherries
    Cottage Cheese
    Salmon
    Melon
    Coconut water
    Beef once a week

    Sups
    Only sups I've ever noticed to make a difference to me were:
    Vitex (for low progesterone)
    Zinc (for acne)

    I've just started taking Vit D3 and Brewer's yeast though, so we shall see...
    "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."

    Really.

    Another example of people seeking "products" for food and health. Surely, just around the corner, is another manufactured super food. Right? Right?
