For me food is simply fuel for my body now
Monday, February 10, 2014
Now that I was finally(after like 5 years of not knowing) diagnosed with the autoimmune disorder and put on the right diet and drugs, I have been healthy without a flare up since June of 2013. This makes me so very happy. My girlfriend and neighbor who went out to dinner with all of us on Saturday is the one that has severe type one diabetes. She and I were talking at dinner how our attitude has changed since we have disorders that require us to eat differently from the normal person. We were saying that we both now just look at food as fuel for our bodies and not so much as just for pleasure. Oh sure there are times when I see others eating the french fries, pizza and such and remember enjoying them in the past but then right away I think of how good I have been feeling compared to when I didn't know what was wrong with me and I am content to eat right. I tell myself that I just need to get the right vitamins and nutrients and I will feel full and happy.
So here's to healthy clean eating.
Have a terrific week.
