digestive issues - probably tmi
Friday, January 10, 2014
First: Even though I gained weight over the holidays, I feel great. I managed to look at my weight and shrug it off. Gained 4 pounds - whatever, I will lose it again. I felt so happy and content over Christmas. And I think one of the main reasons of my gain was the drinking, that was going on. I didn't gain over christmas, I gained in the week around New Year's where lots of drinking and snacking and stuff was going on. Now that everything is back to normal, I feel positive that my weight will be what it was before christmas pretty soon. (in fact, I already lost 1 pound this week).
However, I'm facing one problem I need to work on. During the holidays my digestion was awesome. I didn't feel bloated at all and my belly was happy. All digestive issues were in top order even though I was sometimes eating unhealthy things.
Now that I have returned back to Uni and to a seemingly healthier lifestyle, my digestive issues have returned. No, let me rephrase, I've noticed that I have some issues because I can directly compare it to how I felt the weeks around Christmas. This week I've felt bloated and I've been having a lot of gas aswell as heartburn. I'm also not feeling comfortable with my bowel movement. And I think it has something to do, with the way I'm eating at the moment.
However, this is quite frustrating. Here I am, trying to live healthy and focus and good stuff, and my body is seemingly turning against me.
I'm also quite overwhelmed by the thought of trying to find out WHAT is causing these symptoms. I know it's not milk, so it has to be either a fruit or a vegetable that's not working for me. Ruling out all the possibilities seems almost impossible.
I would really appreciate it, if some sparkpeople would step forward with advice. There have to be at least a few people who went through something similar.
