Thanks for your supportive comment on my blog. I'm still basking in the success of yesterday. I have struggled with those days for awhile now so it is good to finally experience success. It goes to show that success comes to those who keep trying!

Hope your Easter is happy and healthy!!

Thanks for the goodie!! I needed that hug. emoticon

It is so interesting that as my DH adds foods back into his diet (so far just dairy), he is actually feeling better than when he was on the anti-inflammatory diet. I'm not sure what to think of that.

The anti-inflammatory diet includes no dairy, no soy, no corn, no sugar or sweeteners except agave and stevia, no gluten. We were already gluten free due to DH's celiac disease so we haven't had to adjust to that too. No corn has been hard because that means no corn products which includes corn starch and no meat from corn fed animals. Actually that is sort of misleading because we can eat turkey and chicken but not beef or pork. She explained that, even though, turkeys and chickens eat corn, they don't wind up with marbleized fat like beef and pork.

So, we eat fresh or frozen fruits and vegetables. Canned is okay as long as there is no sugar. Same for juice. Protein includes turkey, chicken, fish (canned in water tuna is okay) but no shellfish and wild game meat is okay. Unsweetened nut milks -- we like Silk products. Most oils are okay except corn, soybean, peanut or palm. Nuts except peanuts are okay. Vinegar and spices are okay but no sauces, chocolate or extracts. Just water to drink. No eggs. Grains that are gluten free are okay.

It's a clean way of eating that's for sure. It is recommended that you eat three meals a day plus 2-3 snacks including protein each time you eat. A daily dark green leafy vegetable serving is also recommended.

I haven't made it to 7 yet. Have you gotten to 5? Mary sounds like someone you can really count on -- lucky you to have her in your life!!
