So I have been investigating the diet The Plan and it's all about foods that react negatively on your body and chemistry. Even though I think I have been eating healthy good foods, some of those foods don't like my body chemistry. I can remember many times when I ate under calories and would gain 1-2 pounds over night. Well according to the author some foods cause inflammation. So that makes sense to me. One thing that she says can be very reactive is tomatoes as I mentioned before...well for years I have been eating like 2 cups per day. The are just so yummy here in Mexico. So that got me looking into tomatoes and other things that might affect my arthritis. I have bad arthritis in my hands and feet and pain just about everyday. So I come to learn that night shade veggie can be bad for arthritis. I wasn't even sure what night shade veggies were but thanks to Maureen who sent me this link I found lots of information. Thank you, thank you! Well of course I have been doing everything wrong. No wonder I have so much discomfort. I had no idea at all. No one ever told me that things you think are good for you could cause so much inflammation! So I cut my beloved tomatoes out of my diet and will continue to investigate and learn about other things that might be harmful. I am excited to know that there could be things that I can do or cut out to feel my best. Here is the interesting link that Maureen turned me onto. Anyone else out there suffer from arthritis? Any tips and or suggestions for keeping it under control?
So nice to see Robin Roberts back today. What a great spirit. So happy that she is doing so well. She feels like family.
I do hope all of my sparks buddies are doing well.
I am down to 108.5 so happy to be under my goal of 110 so I can enjoy my birthday dinner out without guilt. That isn't until Monday so still time to keep on track.
Let's make it a great day!
