Finally Feeling Better

Recommended Posts

I just wanted to say that I am actaully feeling better. I posted a couple of days ago becuase I was thinking about going and seeing the specialist again..but I wanted to try one more thing before I did and it has helped.

I completely took out of my diet: eggs, soy, dairy, grains, rice, potatoes, nuts, beans, corn and gluten of course. I FEEL so much better and it has only been two days. So basicly I am eating similar to the paleo diet ( veggies, fruit, meat and salad) and I feel great. I have not had the big D in three days. I will eat anything as long as I don't have the big D! My stomach is not killing me nor is it nosiy anymore. I have energy. I am hoping this stays this way. I plan on eating like this as long as I am feeling good.

I was looking back at my food journal and it seems like I had symptoms with just about all those food items I mentioned above. I actually had a reaction, itching and breathing problems to corn so that is definitely out of my diet. I know that I am eliminating almost everything from my diet, but if I feel better does that matter? I also wanted to thank those who gave me advise on changing the things that I eat, especially those high allergen foods. It has helped tremendously. I will keep you posted.

I have a list that's as long as that, as do many folks on this board and when people ask me, "well, what do you eat?" I don't think they have any realization how many foods are actually out there. I believe that we're programmed early on to be eating these common allergens for most of our lives and then we react to them? Hello? :D

Welcome to the paleo world! People think it's such a restrictive diet but really, you look at what most people eat, it's probably a short list of things... maybe 20 items in it. They're all just variations on grains. Anyway, with vegetables, spices, fruit and meat, the variety is infinite!

Hint: Look at SE Asian foods for loads of ideas on what you can eat (minus the rice). I'm becoming a Thai food cook. :)

Aha, lectins! I thought so. Have you taken out tomatoes and peppers, too? I am very glad you are feeling better.

Almost paleo (with alittle rice) is helping me, too. Congratulations! I hope you continue to feel better.

I'm very happy for you that you are feeling better! I'm to the same place. I can't eat much but meats, non-starchy vegetables, fruits. I do feel better and haven't had intestinal problems at all. I did try some nuts the other day and my joints hurt so badly now, I'm giving those up forever I think!
