    Nuts cause me to bloat as well. I have been munching on chicharrones (pork rinds).

    Oh, almost forgot. Happy Birthday!

    somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug

    Thank you all very much! I'm 53 for the next 365 days!

    Plans for the day........... jumprope, barre3 and weights. Maybe a trip to Costco and Traders Joes. Maybe a little online shopping?

    But I want to do it all the running before it gets hot so I need to get moving!

    Food yesterday:

    4 eggs in olive oil
    lots of tuna loin
    nuts
    honey mustard, homemade w/commercial mayo (made me sick - won't do that again)
    white potato w/butter

    Weight up again to 185. UGH!!! frustration in the weight loss efforts. I think its bloat and inflammation from the mayo. I hadn't even finished my meal and I was feeling nauseous and bloated! It subsided after about an hour, enough that I could rest and sleep. (dinner was at 9 pm cuz hubby worked LATE yesterday)

    Birthday celebrations being put on hold until Saturday. We have a memorial service to go to for hubby's uncle at 11:00 am. Then I think we'll have some Sushi for lunch. Then dinner out and a movie. Sunday we're doing the hike that got cancelled last weekend. 10 miles!!! hope we're up to the challenge!

    Tomi, if you're willing to try it, I think peppermint oil capsules might be helpful for your IBS. You take them 15-30 minutes before a meal. I've read online about some trials & studies that were done with peppermint oil capsules as treatment for IBS. For some people, it does nothing, but for a majority of the tests, it's found to be helpful in reducing muscle spasms, rapid elimination, and reducing bloating & gas (aka. IBS symptoms). It's helped reduce the gas & bloating I have after meals. I'm just taking two capsules a day, before lunch and before dinner. The only thing to watch out for is some minty heartburn if you wait too long before the meal. The bottles I've used say to take it 30-60 minutes before the meal, but if I wait until than 30-45 min, I usually get heartburn. I think this might help reduce the effects of small amounts of disagreeable foods you might eat.

    I've tried this one and this one. I got the second because it has oregano oil, which has antifungal properties as well. If you try it and it doesn't sit well with me, let me know in PM because I'll buy the rest of the bottle .

    Tracking my weight really did help me identify problem foods. If the weight went up the next morning then there was something in my dinner that didn't like me. What is it? Something like an extra 4000 calories to put on an extra pound? So if you puton two pounds overnight, that is inflammation.

    True......... Not real weight gain when I'm eating right. Yesterday totaled about 1700 calories. Not a deficit but not enough to gain. So, I'm figuring it has to be the nuts and mayo. Both caused bloat. Will take them both off my ok list for now.
