Happy NEW 2018 everyone!

Monday, January 08, 2018

2017 review. I have been working on my diet plan since 2014. Read & researched to combine one that works, reducing 80+ so far. Last 15-20 takes more patience & practice to reach goal.
Recalling my eating habits when I was young has helped. The foods that I'm avoiding are the ones that I instinctively did not like as a child. Growing-up in rural Iowa we had plenty of meat. Remember eating a little bit of everything and drinking my milk so I could go out & play. Beans I avoided entirely by eating a tiny bite of meat. I tried vegan Spring 2017 and was so sick from inflammation. Symptoms were constipation, heart racing & nerve tingling. It's never one thing (food or fluids) but I have omitted grains, dairy, legumes, nightshades, etc. Feeling better, reduced inflamation!

Basically, I eat essential nutrients everyday: protein amino acids, fatty acids. vitamins and minerals in non-starchy Vegetables. Fruits limited: avacado, coconut, olive, frozen berries & 1/2 frozen green banana for resistant starch prebiotic to take with probiotic Digestive Advantage.

Last few months 2017 I went from AIP-Paleo to LCHF-Keto and improved health. Too much animal protein was hard on my digestive system & kidneys (waking-up to pee).

2018 working-on modified Keto. Limit: fatty fish or quality eggs high in omega 3. Depending on my activity level -10-20 ounces of animal protein / day. Somedays I will go without animal protein based on appetite & daily weight. emoticon2018 emoticon
