How Will I Incorporate My New Habit?

Sunday, March 03, 2013

Did I say I had a new habit? Maybe it's eating my Ancient Grains bread when I feel I really need it - otherwise sticking to my Perfect Health diet, which of course is a modified low carb diet for life! Get that last part? FOR LIFE!

Now that I know my condition of Ankylosing Spondylitis is a form of arthritis, I can follow what is recommended by the experts - one in particular on Dr. Oz's show last week:

Remove or avoid all gluten (good-bye my Ancient Grains bread!)
No dairy (but I think yogurt is okay)
No refined or processed foods
No alcohol (not a problem - rarely drink anyway)
No night shades (tomatoes/chilli, peppers - eegad - I've been eating those nearly every day)
No NSaid drugs or antacids (not a problem)
No anti-oxidants

Have to replace those with good bacteria, fermented foods and probiotics.

You repair the lining of your intestines with:

Omega-3 flax seed, salmon, nuts and another thing I can't decipher my handwriting, looks like jutamine?

Sooo, what I have done is run out and bought some Krill oil (I use softgel) that Dr. Oz recommends and almost instantly I felt a change!!! I've never had such an immediate response from anything in my life that I've eaten. Wow! No wonder he raves about it.

Will that "new habit" of mine stay or will I throw it out the window ? Let's see how today goes first. One step at a time..... I know my fellow low-carbers here on Spark are saying "Get rid of it NOW!" emoticon (for those who didn't read yesterday's blog, that's the bread I am so addicted to)

Please add any further info. you have.


P.S. Would you believe an ad for Krill oil appeared on the top of my page?

    Thanks for some of that info on repairing the lining, I have IBS, so I may try some of that, although we do eat salmon twice a week.
Never heard of Krill oil, but I tried cod liver oil capsules and it made my IBS worse so will give that a miss.
Keep up the good work, you are doing emoticon

    Great plans! Glad you are getting such quick results. On the dairy, have you tried almond milk? It is lower in calories than milk, and taste great. I've been using it for about a year and love it. Best wishes to you!

    I have absolutely nothing to add here, Helen, except that I am a great believer in what Dr. Oz has to say. So one step at a time, as you say. I'm looking forward to hearing how you do on this new habit. I hope it makes you feel spectacular.
