ferricderric Posted August 13, 2013 Share Posted August 13, 2013 Quick backstory: I was diagnosed this past July. Also, I was attempting the Whole30, but then moved back to school and just completely bombed. I've had gastritis for ~2 years now, and was recently diagnosed with IBS. I'd like to get at least some of this under control, as you may imagine. The Wahls' diet is basically: eat 3 cups of green/cruciferous vegetables. 3 cups of brightly colored veggies, and 3 cups of other veggies/fruits,, along with ~4 oz. of animal protein (I'm a fair bit younger than Dr. Wahls, so I'm going to probably eat some more. However, I'm lucky enough to live by some grass-fed farms, so I'll definitely be eating only high-quality meat). I think this should be pretty easy to incorporate into my Whole30, since it's basically just saying "make sure to diversify what you eat", rather than My log is actually starting on Day 3 (yesterday's food), because I didn't think to join the forum before then. Ah well, better late than never! (Note: I'm underlining the actual food/exercise parts if you don't wanna read through my full log. Thanks for reading!) Morning: ~200-300g of kale and some strawberries + banana in a smoothie. I like doing a smoothie for 2 reasons - (1) I'll get my appropriate quantity greens in that way (2) Medical school doesn't leave me with loads of time, and if I'm spending a little less time cooking I can spend a little more time studying. Afternoon: Sauteed red cabbage (in ghee and coconut oil - I just noticed the AIP says no ghee, so I'm going to have to stop buying that. Which kinda makes me sad, because when I was growing up, my mom cooked a lot of stuff in that so it has strong sentimental value. Oh well, I know why I'm doing this - because health is the most important thing we have!) and an orange bell pepper. Also ate 2 grass-fed beef burgers (~8 oz). Evening: ~200-300g of kale and some strawberries in a smoothie. Ate some more of my sauteed red cabbage and orange bell pepper mixture. Exercise: From what I've seen, for MS patients exercise is even more important than the population at large. However, I am incredibly out of shape (have been for a while) and hate doing things like running for the sake of running. Luckily, one of my classmates invited me to play some basketball, and we probably played for 1.5 hours. I was dying after 30 minutes - I could barely move. However, it was a step in the right direction! I'm pretty excited about that. Thanks again for reading!
