Ever Been On A Healing Diet? Looking To Inspire

This could be anything. Vegan, clean-eating, including more fruits and veg. Has anyone ever done anything like this? If so, what were the benefits.

Yeah, i was prediabetic a few years back. Dr. John McDougalls lectures got me interested in a High-Carb Low Fat Starch Based Vegan diet. I did over 1,200 hours of research on the subject. I literally changed everything in one night, stopped all animal products, caffeine, cacao, and chocolate. It reversed my prediabetic state in two weeks, and turned me into a 2:49 marathoner and 347watt/hr cyclist in two years.

Wait till you hear some of the stuff about water fasting. I still think its relatively too dangerous to personally mess with(not sure i could make it after my ana) but im glad others do, becuase its absolutely fascinating. Completely removes scar tissue for example.

I did a four-week water-only fast about 40 years ago. It was amazingly easy, and I continued going to work, sleeping like a baby. I have fantasies of doing it again, but I'm a lot more cautious now than I was at 19. Shame.

Other people get to you with unhelpful things like: "You've got anorexia" or "You have to eat".

Everyone in a 1st world economy has a real eating disorder, they just don't realize it yet.

You do go in for globalizing statements, don't you? Is that "everyone but me", hmm?

Have you travelled in any third-world countries? There's no upside to starvation.

We have plenty of choices these days. Smart people ignore whole aisles in the supermarket. A quick sugar hit carries too many health-destroying factors to be worthwhile.
