    @sushisomeday way to go!  Congratulations!  Your story gives me encouragement!  Good for your daughter!

    sushisomeday got a reaction from DEW in Day 4 after a year as an intermittent fasting vegetarian   
    Today is my Day 30!  I woke up this morning feeling really good.
    I wake up before my alarm every day.
    My energy level is pretty much the same.
    I feel hungry before breakfast. I actually eat a breakfast now, and that’s a big change.
    I feel tired at about the same time each night. I get a deeper sleep.
    I no longer need to take OTC allergy meds. I had an oral allergy to bananas and apples that seem to have disappeared.
    My clothes fit better. I stepped in the scale today and note I lost 5 lbs but I can tell it’s different than “normal” - I can see my jawline. I have loose pants. My body digs into the bed differently. 
     
    I have been apprehensive about what reintroduction will be like, but because my family is on their Day 15, I figure I would go the slow route and take my time. In the week ahead I will try added sugar. 
     
    On a separate note, my T1D kid’s endocrinologist is so impressed at how well managed her blood glucose numbers have been. 95+% of her weeks have been in target range. That’s not ever happened. She’s cleared up a dry patch on her skin and her moods are happier. I am so so grateful for this change!

    You might enjoy these, if you eat fish: http://meljoulwan.com/2014/11/10/oven-fried-salmon-cakes/. There's not a lot of meat texture, at least in my opinion.
