    Gluten-free day 6 & 1 week w/o amino acids

    I am worried about losing my gluten-free streak this weekend. It's easy to say "just this once". It doesn't become anything more, usually, but the point is to be 100% compliant in this regard right now. If I can't do it for 2 weeks (my goal right now), how can I manage this for the rest of my life? It's not worth the joint pain. My family won't be pushy about this, it's just my own desires. I'll just have to do my best to eat adequately so there's no room for temptation.

    Food (yest.)
    -Peppermint tea w/ hydrolyzed collagen (I wonder if gelatin would be more filling)
    -Banana & apple w/ almond butter, pork chop w/ green beans, some almond butter solo because I was hungry later
    -Bunch of medjool dates and several slices of cantaloupe
    -Pork chop & roasted russet potatoes
    -Bit of dark chocolate

    I had a BM after lunch, probably from the almond butter (I should probably not be eating it at all, but I got the jar as an indulgence and have been enjoying it thoroughly). I only took mag citrate at bed time. I will take it at every meal & before bed today. Gotta make sure all my supplements get packed up to come to Maine with us tonight! Having a bunch in liquid form is so easy. All I have to do is chug a bit of nasty-flavored water in the morning & I'm all set

    Body
    -My knees still hurt when doing lunges and cycling sometimes. I think it's just working them though, nothing from inflammation. No cycling today due to rain.
    -My hands started to hurt after eating a little dark chocolate last night. I already knew it was bad for my gut, but I guess it's no good for the rest of me too. I'm throwing the last little bit out.
    -I was reading a paleo page about SIBO and it reminded me of the Specific Carbohydrate Diet. I just ordered the book, should be here next week. I can start to implement it while Hulky is away. It's going to be hard going back to "potatoes for him but not for me". Sweet potatoes are not okay for SIBO, but squash is.

    Sleep
    -I've been getting to bed a little late this week, but still feeling okay despite that.

    Brain
    -So far still so good without the amino acids. I guess my body was ready to be done with them? I'd been feeling more anxious lately and wasn't sleeping well, so I stopped taking them and now I feel "normal" without them. It's been about 10 months since I started taking them regularly again. Maybe it was one of the other supplements I started recently that helped set things straight? Magnesium? No clue! I just hope this lasts!
    -I am still dealing with some anxiety, but it's very recognizable when it occurs and I am able to squash the response. It's just a habit, not a real feeling.

    This day can't go fast enough! I want to get up to Maine! We're going to stop at a Barnes & Noble on the way up to buy Hulky a book. I'll be bringing one or two that I started a while ago and never finished. Looks like chance of rain, low 70's tomorrow, but we'll still enjoy some beach walking. I need to remember to bring a hat for each of us! My sunburn is finally gone from last weekend, Hulky's is still healing, and I don't want more!

    Venus wants to hang (well, so do I) the weekend of the 17th. I'd love to go down and visit her in CT but...with our budget things the way they are right now, it'd be more manageable for me if she could come here. She said it's up to me. I don't know why I'm feeling guilty about asking her to come here. I want to figure that out.

    Anybody else feeling like fall is fast approaching? I'm in the mood for sweaters, hot drinks, and leaf crunching.

    I noticed my mouth and throat felt itchy after eating cantaloupe today

    Itchy Mouth After Eating Fresh Fruit | LIVESTRONG.COM

    Well shit. I have tons of allergies to tree pollen & rag weed, so according to this, I may not be able to eat most common fruits w/o having a reaction. I wonder if Zantac just before eating would help (I ran out a while ago and stopped taking it). Something to try, anyway. Maybe I should invest in some raw local honey finally =\. My allergies are so much worse this year than ever before and I hope it's just a gut thing and that I can fix it.

    Allegra (and other OTC stuff I've tried) only serves to stop my nose from running. I am still terribly congested, sneeze plenty, and get itchy eyes. I'll ask my doctor about this at my annual.

    Hey Nameless, sorry about your allergies. Allergies suck! And thanks for the link. That explains why I developed oral allergies to certain things after moving to the East Coast. I never had seasonal allergies in CA, but I started having them after moving to Philly cuz, well, I guess I'm just allergic to the East Coast. After moving here, I also developed oral allergies to soy milk (yes, I used to consume soy milk from time to time), ranier cherries, and (sometimes) bing cherries. So far, my oral allergies are limited to cherries, and bing cherries don't always trigger it so yours may be limited to certain types of fruits as well. Still sucks though. I wonder if it would go away after I move back to CA? Probably not. Once you have the antibodies, you probably have them forever.

    I have an oral allergy to soy as well. Makes my mouth & throat itch!

    Hulky and I really want to move and he would not mind going back to CA (born there). I wonder if my allergies would alleviate with the change of pollen.

    More friends for me to have when I move to CA
    "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." 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."

    Back to aminos...Julia Ross says that amino acid therapy should be a limited time thing. Once you are rebalanced, you need to get off them.

    Fall No!!!

    My GYN found cervical dysplasia in me a few years ago AND I tested NEGATIVE for HPV. She was completely flummoxed and decided to just keep an eye on it and scheduled me to come back in 3 mos. I did some Internet searching and found that some women develop abnormal cells in response to contact with bleaching agents in tampons. I switched to a Diva Cup (silicone sterilizable and reusable cup) and have had no dysplasia since.

    (As all penis-havers abandon thread) I love menstrual cups! I haven't yet found one that works well for me, but the disposable kind are convenient for sleeping/bicycling at least. Maybe I can get one in the budget this month, we'll see. I never used tampons much and have been using cloth pads for the past year or so, almost exclusively.

    I have the HPV vaccine. Not sure what good it'll do, but whatever, it's done. It was free!

    My weekend in Maine was great. We squeezed in a matinee of 2 Guns at the local theater, which was a fun/silly shoot-'em-up. Mark Wahlberg as Mark Wahlberg & Denzel Washington as awesome.

    Everyone seems to like those things... And after hearing all this bad news about tampons, I wonder if I should try it. I'm about to get a copper IUD which supposedly makes you periods heavier for a while (yippity fucking doo) so this might be a good time to switch?

    Funny because it's true.
    Is it weird in here, or is it just me?
