mdamarante Posted July 12, 2015 Share Posted July 12, 2015 I just finished reading It Starts With Food. I'm very excited about getting started! I suffer from hypothyroidism, IBS, and general joint and muscle aches and pains that have never been explained, as well as fatigue which would appear to be unrelated to the thyroid as my THS test is normal on meds. My concerns, are 1. Being required /having to eat breakfast. The thought and smell of food in the morning is nauseating to me. Does anyone else have this problem? My stomach is generally unsettled until around 9:30 and 10:30. The book recommends eating as soon as 30 minutes after you get up. 2. The thought of not having a glass of wine when I get home from work is unnerving. 3. I need to quit smoking. I'm not sure if I should attempt both at the same time? As in better to kill 2 birds with one stone, or try to stop the smoking first. FWIW I really want to quit the cigarettes, I hate them!Other than that I think I can do this, even though I love my yogurt and cheese, I'm not a big milk drinker. And I'll have to give up coffee for at least a while, because I cannot stand the taste of coffee with no sugar or cream. I'll just switch to tea in the morning.
