Fat Metabolism/weight Loss
Posted 29 July 2012 - 04:15 PM
I have tried to keep the fat to just egg yolk, 94% fat free ground beef, and olive oil.
The bile acid supplements caused me severe heartburn even at a lost dose. Lipase seems to have no effect.
The question I have is if I am just out of luck ever going full lc or is there an approximate time frame where I will have a normalized fat metabolism? I am curious if I should just stay lc and suck it up so to speak with the side effects or stay low fat, low calorie for a while and try it again or quite frankly try something else.
I think what I am thinking in me head while also asking out loud if it does not sound better to not worry about the numbers on the scale now, got low fat, and low calorie and just give the gut time to heal without stressing over weight.
On the positive side, I have been very serious about being gluten-free for a while now after being a moron about it off and on.
Hopefully some of this makes sense, because I think I confused myself writing it.

It can be confusing trying to weed out other intolerance one at a time.
Undiagnosed Celiac Disease ~ 43 years
3/26/09 gluten-free - dignosed celiac - blood 3/3/09, biopsy 3/26/09, double DQ2 / single DQ8 positive
10/27/09 diagnosed fibromyalgia - supplemented with amino acids - improvement followed by substantial deterioration
maybe one good hour per day for ~17 months
8/10/11 - Elimination Diet for Autoimmune Disease - incredible improvement along with clear reactions to most high lectin foods
only remaining symptom - severe heat intolerance / reaction to heat, humidity and exercise
Tomato, Pepper, Potato, Peanut, Soy, Bean, Pea, Citrus, Pineapple, Avocado, Shellfish, Dairy, Grain, Nut and Seed FREE
3/1/12 - Horrible flare -- same ol' symptoms but worse ~ 7/1/12 - Endo: Active Celiac 3+ years - as gluten-free as humanly possible.
11/15/12 - Improving once again - Almonds back - Eggs gone
12/1/12 - Histamine containing and inducing foods FREE -- probable cause of my heat/exercise "allergy"...
...this was one of my earliest symptoms as a child -- the enzyme (DAO) needed to regulate histamine is created in the small intestine.

I think this next week I am going to forgo the low carb, eat the low fat and see if that changes how I feel physically. I am just not going to stress over weight reduction and focus more on feeling good so I can devote more energy to working out which is just something I have not felt good enough to do the last two months.

For me the only time I've effectively lost weight in the past was with high high exercise daily routines. Now I can barely walk around the block. It's an adjustment for all of us and we just need to learn what best suits our bodies as things change for us.
Gluten free January 2012.
Tyramine free June 2012 - slowly getting a few foods back at a time.... scratch that
Low Histamine April 2013 - I swear this better be the last time I have to restrict my diet because giving up chocolate is the final straw
Iodine free briefly fall 2012
If ever you are feeling like you’re tired, And all your uphill struggles leave you headed downhill
If you realize your wildest dreams can hurt you, And your appetite for pain has drinken its fill
I ask of you a very simple question, Did you think for one minute that you are alone
And is your suffering a privilege you share only, Or did you think that everybody else feels completely at home
