How about a nice iced chai tea, herbal. I have to agree with the things to be avoided. I'm sure we all have our own "other things" list too. Like a whole salad for me is deadly. Frequency not lack of is my normal issue, walk a fine line.
Your list is a good one to follow! Can you tolerate carbonated beverages? I cannot even enjoy a cup of sparkling cider during the holidays because the gas it gives me and makes me blow up like a big balloon!
Dance as though no one is watching you, love as though you have never been hurt, sing as though no one can hear you and live as though heaven is on earth.
Hi! I've had severe IBS symptoms for 23 years and it's just been lately that I've seen a HUGE improvement! I have given up a lot of things from my diet over the last month or two. When I slip and eat some of these things, my gut starts fighting me within minutes. I hope this helps other people. Here's my "JUST SAY 'NO' TO" list:
1. most preservatives (eat fresh stuff) 2. white & "enriched" flours 3. hydrogenated oils 4. high fructose corn syrup 5. high sodium foods 6. foods with added sugar 7. saturated fat 8. most fried foods 9. most processed/packaged foods 10. high cholesterol foods
Life is too short to spend it hating your body. Don't let insecurity ruin the beauty you were born with.
You are successful the moment you start moving toward a worthwhile goal.
