trying to feel better

Friday, December 28, 2012

I start a large elimination diet on the 1st of this month, my tummy was in bad shape. I did not even care if I lost weight. I took out soy, peanuts, milk, wheat, sugar, artificial sweeteners and corn. I started reintroducing them one at a time. So far, corn is a big no! Next was milk a week later, another no. It feels like my intestines are on fire. I am unsure if its lactose, but I hurt too much to try again right now. When I added soy milk, a bad hurt. Between additions my tummy feels so much better. I am going to wait another week before I try something else. I find the problem is finding protein. I now add sunflower seeds and almonds, which is increasing both fat and protein. I was having a problem getting enough fat too, so odd! I am slowly figuring it all out. And in the end, 4 weeks later I have also lost 12 pounds. I had gained 20 before this, so a good sign that the changes are good for me.

    There are a lot of diets out there that emphasize getting rid of many of the items you are eliminating. You might like a paleo-style diet. Hope you feel better pronto!

    Soy can really be hard on the bellies of some people. How do you do with beans? Have you tried working with a nutritionist? Sometimes they can be helpful. Good luck and I hope you feel better! emoticon
