This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

      In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

            But so many good things have happened since I gave up gluten! Cystic acne disappeared (except now it's suddenly back) and umm... I have less body hair. That's pretty much it.

            Zach, remind you of anyone?

              Ed Nort : good call! I also love tortured men, ha He was such a babe in FC. Lost it now though...

              edit: I mean men who are tortured by their own demons. I'm not into S+M. Just to clarify.

                • I think gluten intolerance and lactose intolerance comes from something being amiss systemically rather than a problem with the food itself. Assuming they're high quality of course. Grains have been eaten for a very long time, and only in the last decade(if that) or so, have people started attributing problems with gluten consumption.

                  I'm doing more experiments, some involve consuming flour and wheat products since I feel that I'm healthy right now. Nothing like a nutella and banana sandwich to fuel my day.

                    Entry Two: Keep quiet while I shut your mind


                    Sleep:
                    10.30pm - 7am: 8.5 hours! Amazing - three nights sleep in a row. I could have slept for longer tbh, but I had to get up.

                    Temperature:
                    No thermometer today.

                    Energy and mood:
                    Energy is coming back slightly, thank fuck. I'm still tired, but there's definitely a shift in the other direction: was on my feet prob 50% of the day. Feeling much better mood-wise.

                    Food / Hunger / Cravings
                    Not majorly hungry.

                    9am - Breakfast: Few berries, coffee.
                    11am - Brunch: Two poached eggs, two slices bacon, roasted tomato, coffee (restaurant).
                    4pm - Lunch: Broth, banana.
                    7pm - Dinner: Goan fish curry half glass white wine.
                    8pm - Snack: banana.
                    1 litre Coconut water, one raspberry tea.

                    Cravings: None today.

                    Body:
                    Still exceptionally bloated.
                    Hair - Not as good as it has been. Different shampoo?
                    Skin - Skin under eyes is looking very thin, and a bit purple... Got another cystic spot (on my forehead this time. Bacon?)
                    Lips - Very strange: they chapped as soon as I finished breakfast. Was it the crappy salt, or the bacon?
                    Keratosis pilaris: Smooth.
                    Eyes were streaming today.
                    Digestion - No BM.
                    Circulation - legs went dead a few times whilst sitting on the floor.

                    Fitness:
                    Walked the dog for 45 mins, 10 mins yoga.

                    Stress:
                    Ended up telling my mum the extent of how exhausted I get, but not the extent of my depression. I've never talked to her properly about either before, so she didn't take it well. She basically told me that being tired was "in my head" and that I needed to force myself to do things. If only it was that easy.

                    I can appreciate that for someone who doesn't have issues with energy they can't understand how difficult it is for someone who crashes all the time. On one level I absolutely agree that all illness and malfunctions begin in the mind. If I knew how to make "mind over matter" work I would.

                    Reminds me of a story I heard about a woman who cured cancer through laughter therapy. I wonder if listening to positive statements every morning would get the day going better? The more I look at it, the more I wonder if everything (the energy crashes, the depression, the ED) just stems from stress?

                    Final thoughts:
                    Immediately I can see that there's a correlation between hunger, exercise, energy: More energy, less hunger / cravings, more exercise.

                      I agree that for most people the problem is probably not the gluten: it's the chemicals and stuff that the gluten comes packaged with. In France a loaf of bread that you buy in the morning is stale by evening time. In my part of the world it's fresh for three days...!

                      However, I also know that I had a beer last week, and got an acne outbreak. Any time I eat cookies, the same thing happens. Maybe it's not the gluten: it could be the other ingredients, but I'll eliminate one culprit at a time.

                      Couldn't all food intolerances be considered "something amiss with the person's system"?

                        I'm not a big fan of alcohol anyway, if we're being honest, bad experiences with it involving people close to me. It does nothing to me to affect my personality, or physically, it's just psychological. I think I outwardly reject things that tend to make people dumber too.

                        Haha, bread here in loaves is kept in backrooms of grocery stores for a few months before they put it out front and slap a best by date on it, which is 2 weeks with a 1 week leeway. Talk about nasty.

                            • I like that you're not trying to fix yourself with fads. Because then you get lost in the fixing and the fad and forget about recovering. IMO

                                When I was going through my zero carb, 5 foods nonsense, a friend of mine had similar advice in the form of gesff, or "you'll be fine, go eat some french fries".

                                I may not agree so much with the bread version, if it's making you sick YB, but there is something to a certain amount of letting go.
