Dairy (Yet another one for the ladies...)
I've mentioned a few times that I've experienced heavy periods for years. Didn't realize it until a friend was diagnosed with menorrhagia and I realized my periods were heavier than hers! Then I was diagnosed with anemia AND put on a medication that makes my periods come every 14-18 days, which didn't seem like a great idea. I'm scheduled to see the doctor in a couple of weeks to discuss how to fix this, ranging from hysterectomy to Mirena IUD.
I quit dairy a month ago to see if it would help my skin.
I am currently having a normal period. I think. It's so long since I've had anything other than a heavy period that I'm not even quite sure if this is normal. But it's probably 1/3 the flow of before.
So, based on my clearest skin since I was 12, and the lightest periods since I was 30, I guess I'm sticking with dairy-free for the long haul. Well, until menopause, which is probably another 7-8 years. Then I won't have to worry about zits and periods at all!
Zone diet on and off for several years....worked, but too much focus on exact meal composition
Primal since July 2010...skinniest I've ever been and the least stressed about food
