What to do? I am working very hard to get healthier and get to a healthier weight. My husband is constantly nagging me about what I am eating. He doesn't think that I should be so concerned about my weight. At least not enough to leave me alone so that I can do what is working for me. I am doing a very basic diet right now since I found out that what I am eating could be affecting my sleep by inflaming my gut. I found out from my doctor that while I may not be allergic to some foods, I may be sensitive to them. Some foods may cause my stomach and intestines to be unhappy enough to make sleep a questionable goal. I am avoiding sugar, salt and yeast. The goal is to stay on this basic diet for a while and then keep a food journal as I incorporate one food at a time to see what doesn't agree with my stomach. I have slept so blissfully over the last two weeks on this diet of fruit, veggies and meat.
After a stressful weekend of dealing with my husband, I succumbed and ate some salsa and corn chips. I then had a rotten night as I belched and dealt with a sour stomach all night! I am still feeling it right now as I write this blog! I don't know if it is the corn, the salsa or the combination that my stomach doesn't like. I am getting back on track so that my stomach will like me better. I just wish I knew how to get my husband to leave me alone for a while.
