They eat an unprocessed diet rich in antioxidants. Carbs mainly from sweet potatoes and smaller portions of rice. Generally higher quantities of vegetables compared to the western diet. Small portions of meat. Tea and turmeric. Lower PUFA and lower total calories. My takeaway from their diet would definitely NOT be high carbs and low protein alone.

I like this. While not trying to downplay anyone’s bad experiences, the “woe is me” attitude is way too pervasive. It’s always a bitter uphill struggle for most. It makes sense to try our best. To quote something I read once “what is the other fucking option?”
