Been feeling like a limp wet dish rag this past week. But the week ended on a high note.
One of my goals is to get off meds. I'm not off the medication but it got reduced.
My cholesterol levels have improved.
So what changed??? I don't do dairy. Heaven knows I loved cheese, But if it comes down to dairy and take drugs, I'll do without the dairy thank you.
Until I did The Engine 2 diet I never truly realized how much fat I was consuming.A dab of butter here, a slice of cheese there, a dollop of sour cream, cream for my coffee, Did I forget to mention ice cream. I never really stopped to think about all the dairy products in my life.
The money spent on dairy now goes to fresh produce. I splurge on those mini Persian cukes, they are a nice size for lunch and I am so worth it.
