As of late I haven’t been feeling too well. I get a very hopeless feeling when my diet is healthy, I’m still active and I still don’t feel ok. I feel fatigued, swollen, my HS flares up like crazy. I get angry, confused and to an extent, jealous of my all the people I know that can eat whatever they want, that eat crap, and still feel great.
But then I take a deep breath…. an very looooonnngg, deeeeepppp breath and remember that feeling those things is counter productive and not the kind of person I am, or want to be. So I say fuck it. Let’s just do the damn thing and go on an all out elimination diet.
It’s like Whole30 without nuts, all the good seasonings, COFFEE or nightshades… or eggs. FREAKING EGGS! So in other words, until this bare minimum diet gets my symptoms under control I will be a very unhappy person. Day 3 and no results yet, except for a little burst of energy. Baby steps.
I’m still navigating this whole thing… I need to add more organ meat in to my diet. I was talking to my mom about liver pate today. I might go that route and I need to get some more bone broth brewing. My goal is to stay on this diet until my symptoms go in remission and then add in food one at a time. I will probably start with wine, follow with coffee and then eggs. Just sayin’!
Here’s what I’ve been eating up to now, I’ll write up another post once I’m back in tip top shape and give a full AIP recap! I’m going to make this elimination diet my bitch (and share it with all of you!).
