I've been having issues that I'd thought were related to heartburn. And they might be. But this week I realized I've had some bleeding from my stomach, which combined with the other issues, means I have a case of gastritis.
It's not a happy thing to have. Not at all. It's especially rough for me since my diet plan is high fat and low carb. Medical research doesn't cover such a diet and its interaction with various health issues. As such, the suggested diet for recovery from gastritis is not the primal/ paleo diet. And so, today, out of an abundance of caution (and fatigue with feeling yucky), I went low fat. I stayed within my caloric range and don't expect too much of a backstep, but it's frustrating to have to abandon a plan that works, even for a short while.
