HawaiianGal Posted October 23, 2013 Share Posted October 23, 2013 Hi there, I'm on Day 27, and wishing I had better news. One of the reasons I did this was to see if I could find a solution for the inflammation that's going on in my body. Hip, back, elbows, thumbs, and now one knee are painful to use. I get about 5 hours of solid sleep before my back pain keeps me awake for the rest of the night. i have been compliant. I have hypothyroidism (medicated) with chronic adrenal fatigue. Tested for RA and don't have it. I'm not celiac either. Nothing "official" is showing up in my blood work. I was hoping to slim down a bit, and all my clothes fit just the same. Breakfast - 2 eggs and meat (beef or bacon) with sauteed mixed veggies (about 1 cup by the time its cooked) piece of fruit Lunch - meat and veggies with olive oil and balsamic vinegar or home made mayo Afternoon snack - fruit and macadamia nuts Dinner - meat and veggie with winter squash or sweet potato I throw what I eat into perfectdiettracker so that I have a record of what I ate when. I'm averaging about 1300 calories a day. I could ditch the afternoon fruit and add a fourth meal, would that really make a difference though? Warning, TMI ahead! My bowel movements have changed, and often smell foul. They also float and I get that oil slick as well. This is new for me. I started taking digestive enzymes a few days ago and haven't noticed a difference yet. Exercise is difficult with my knee and hip acting up, that's new this past few months. Before that, my back pain made walking not so much fun... Stairs or even slight inclines are difficult to climb. Gosh, I sound like a wreck don't I? Doctors have been no help, so I'm trying to figure this out on my own. Any suggestions? Thank you in advance. I stopped caffeine, wheat, soy, sugar, dairy, rice, grains... and I had high hopes. Also haven't noticed a difference with nitrates or nightshades. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
