MS update. Meat = Constipation

Friday, February 03, 2012

It's confirmed, for me anyway. Animal tissue brings on constipation.
My husband's been away this week, so I've gotten a lot of writing done, but have neglected cooking. Which means I've been having a lot of Thai take out with my son. I pick out all the chicken, but surely some has slipped in. Also, there is the odd bits of squid and the occasional shrimp I've had. And then there is a little bit of egg here and there. Holy Doodle but I have gotten constipated this last week! He's coming home today so I'll go back to cooking, and being more vigilant.
On the up side, I have been getting back to the gym everyday, building up my endurance and re-starting my weight training. My back always hurts, if left unattended, so I start with back extensions, then add in abs, then upper body, then squats.
The shot system is going well.
The megavitamins continues to be a help.
Getting ready to do battle with my lackadaisical neurologist.
Will book an appointment today with a naturopath today to see what they have to say. I'll let you know.

    All of the sodium in restaurant foods (especially Asian foods) cause the body to release liquids, adding to less water in your intestines, and making constipation worse. Also, the addition of white rices or white rice noodles found in Thai foods don't help. I have to really up my fiber intake when I plan to eat Thai food to balance my gut.
