Hola! So a few months back I discovered the hard way that I'm intolerant to a lot of foods. I'm not sure how I missed this in my 20 years of living. But being ill and in bed for about 3 days caused me to really think about my eating habits and exercise regime (or lack thereof). I couldn't believe I was running out of breath after a couple of flights of stairs! What? I'm
years old!!! I'm on the road to recovery right now, and I'm doing this by watching what I eat and slowly eliminating artificial foods in my diet. As obvious as this is, I find it absolutely compelling how minimising certain foods have an enormous effect on the body. Bread is one of those foods. You eat bread all your life right? Of course, everyone eats bread. But as of late I'd feel really full and sick after consuming it, and as soon as I ceased, my body would be alright again! Magic!
Also does anyone else get bloated after eatting bread, no? only me?
I haven't done that much research into what causes these things or why one would suddenly become intolerant or allergic to things. This reaction I had to the food I ate is a blessing in disguise. I don't think I would have made a lifestyle change if I hadn't gone through that, so I'm happy it happened. The most crucial thing to this new way of eating is planning. Planning. Planning.Planning. I think you need to know your body and what it needs. Personally, I know I get bored and peckish very easily so it's important for me to have a lot of snacks and a wide range of snacks to feed my appetite. I love
for in the mornings, Bananas, grapes and cranberries in the afternoon and after dinner I'll have a massive cup of green tea. Popcorn and crackers are also lovely. I typically have a big breakfast, and if I have the chance, I'll keep snacking right until lunch time when I have some rice or pasta. My lunchtimes also tend to be quite big, though not as significant as my breakfast. My diet essentially looks like an upside down pyramid. It's been interesting but I'm still learning, my body is still teaching me stuff; its likes and dislikes and such.
