It sounds like you are already a pretty lean person and don't carry much fat anyways.  The healthier you are, the less you store fat around your viscera (apple shape) and the more you store it in your hips and thighs (pear shape).  However, like I said, this only goes for fat and your musculature and bone structure are permanent.
While you cannot change your body shape, you can change where you store fat.  Healthy women will usually store what fat they do have around their hips and thighs as storage for when they have a baby growing inside of them and need the extra energy.  As an apple shape, you probably store a little more visceral fat than someone who is a pear shape and this could have health implications.  By changing your diet you can change where you store fat and this will likely also...
Get the pastured eggs.  You are not putting the GMO's into your body directly and because of this, they are not as worrisome.  Besides, when chickens are free to scratch around and eat bugs, they don't really eat that much supplemental feed like soy or grain.  In addition, the health benefits that you will receive from eggs that are loaded with omega-3's and other nutrients far outweighs the benefit of eating nutrient deficient eggs just because their mother's didn't eat...
Ah, this question is so frustrating.  Fats don't act the same outside the body as they do inside the body.  It's not like they are just sitting around in a pan solidifying.  They are used to nourish your brain, soften your skin, and so much more.  Here are two quotes I really like that illustrate the point in a logical, albeit not scientific way:   Red meat is not bad for you. Now blue-green meat, that's bad for you! -Tommy Smothers   They claim red meat is bad...
Don't put the jar lids on because the milk will need air to ferment.  The best way to do it is just to take a paper towel or a piece of cloth and drape it over the jar.  I like to secure mine with either a hair band or a rubber band, but that is just personal preference.  All that matters is that the jar opening is covering so that the milk is not contaminated with bacteria that will eventually turn into mold while it is fermenting.
Congrats!  It sounds like you have picked an incredibly healthy diet.     With all the fats and protein you will be eating, you will likely feel satisfied for much longer after a meal than you would had you eaten a carb heavy meal.  This is good because it means that you will naturally eat less.  In addition, without the grains and other carb heavy foods, you will naturally regulate your blood sugar which means that insulin won't be shuttling excess glucose into your...
