NOT IN THE ZONE



I've had a lot of things happening over the past 10 days and have not been in a weight loss frame of mind. My eating has been totally unplanned and all over the place.

Of course all this additional stress has not done me any favours health wise, my arthritis is niggling more,headaches are worse and to top that all off my colitis is active again, all in all I'd say my immune system is stuffed at the moment.My stomach is so distended I feel like I'm ready to give birth.

I have decided to go on an Low Reactive ( Elimination) Diet for 15 days to see once and for all is I have any food allergies. I'm cutting out dairy, wheat,eggs, salicylates to name a few. After the 15 days I will reintroduce 1 food at a time for 3 days and see if I have any reaction. I have written out my grocery list for tomorrow and come Monday is when I start, wish me luck as I will certainly need it.

Good for you for moving on from this bad patch - it's often easier said than done.

I will be watching with interest regarding food allergies, being a mum of a baby that has several i've learnt a few tricks along the way, but they can be dealt with and quite easily when you get used to them.

Geez you aren't doing too good at ALL are you! [[hugs]]
I really hope that you do find an allergy. Knowledge is power after all.
Let us know when you know something :o)

Good luck with that mate...

Oh dear!!! You're going through a rough patch!!! I think the Elimination Diet sounds like a good strategy for pinpointing what the problem is.

I wish you more than luck. You deserve to be comfortable in your own body.

Good luck on your food allergy testing. I ended up finding a doctor who could do a blood test for instant and latent allergies to figure out which ones I had.

I had a thought....Imagine if you're allergic to saturated fat? Wouldn't that be an awesome kick in the bum?!? lol
