Elimination Diet Week 2
Monday, November 24, 2014
Two weeks in and this isn't helping at all as yet. I'll give it the full month if I have to but if not I'm going to insist on a referral to a gastroenterologist. I'm not doing a very good job of keeping on my calorie goals. I'm not allowed to eat raw fruit on this diet, which is annoying and I've actually if anything been eating less veggies, maybe rebelling because I can't eat much and I don't want to be made to eat my veggies, or maybe because I just feel like I can't juggle trying to get my 5 fruit and veggie servings in when most fruits are out and I already have to keep track of so much. The first week I tried to make my veggie pact and so I upped my dried fruits and I think that's why I had such a bad week GI-wise. Maybe all of this is just down to fiber, which would be a bit ironic, if trying to be healthy was making me sick, but I barely make the fiber minimums most days normally so it doesn't seem that likely. A bit frustrated with the whole thing, mostly because it isn't working. But at least I won't be worried that dairy is doing me in anymore if this continues to not work the whole month.
