I'm in re-evaluation mode again.
feeling sluggish, achy and stiff.
been nibbling on forbidden foods (peanut butter, chips, oatmeal w/brown sugar, just once, but still not good)
been drinking too much and too often again.
weight is not moving (alcohol?)
with recent family changes (improvements) I feel this a good time to make some health improvements as well.
I'm wondering if the paleo autoimmune protocol is a good idea.
Its Paleo only more serious. Eliminating the following:
-seeds (including cocoa, coffee, and seed-based spices)
-nightshades (tomatoes, potatoes, eggplant, peppers, and the spices derived from them)
-excess fructose (more than 20g/day)
-potential gluten cross-reactive foods
-non nutritive sweeteners (including stevia)
-emulsifiers, thickeners, and other food additives
I want to feel better........ lose weight........ feel sexy (libido is alive again)
For me this translates into cutting eggs, making ghee instead of using butter, stop nibbling from the peanut butter jar, no more rum and diet coke, and sweet potatoes instead of white. As well as the other paleo rules.
With the stress of SD out of the house now I think this could all be a bit easier. I'm a stress eater........ now, no more stress
I'm going to try. Already failed today cuz I ate eggs for breakfast --- but, I can make the rest of the day a success.
