glad to hear that you are finding success!
haven't specifically done this diet. but I understand it is a healthy, well rounded diet. for me, I also feel better (AS wise) when I weigh at my lower end of my range. I think there is evidence that some foods generally increase inflammation while others reduce inflammation. My wife strongly believes highly processed foods such as sugar and grains increase inflammation. my gut says she's probably right.
the other advantage to your new diet is that it seems good for the digestive system. you may never have gi issues, but this would seem helpful to head off issues.
