    yesterday was another headache and shoulder ache filled day. Am wondering whether I am having too much protein and not enough fat - especially after reading on MDA that excess protein can be converted into glucose and cause spikes & drops. Need to do more research in how to raise fat, drop protein down, stay low-carb and still stay in the FODMAPS guidelines. Tricky!

    I ate:

    IF till noon
    Lunch was homemade "korma" - 2 chicken breast cooked in a can of coconut milk with grated coconut, most of a packet of flaked almonds, grated coconuts, and spices (curry powder, ginger, tumeric, black pepper)
    Dinner was 8 strips of smoked streaky bacon, 2 fillets of smoked mackerel, 100g coconut meat and a couple of spoons of coconut cream mixed with double cream.

    drinks were herbal tea throughout the day, ACV in hot water before/during dinner and a pint of water before bed.

    After doing some research on MDA, The Primal Parent and a couple of other sites, I have come up with a list of foods to eat that take into account FODMAPS, low-carb, no fructose, low fibre and Primal eating. Have discovered that coconut should be avoided and, as this seems to make up about 99% of what I eat!

    The list is:

    all meat (including organ meats & bone broth)
    gelatin
    fish
    eggs (in moderation)
    cooked leafy veg (lettuce, spinach, parsley, coriander)
    cooked veg (carrots, swede, parsnips)
    seaweed / sea vegetables
    white rice
    lemons & limes


    As of next week I am going to change the eating to encompass the above foods rather than the pure meat/fat diet I have been trying.

    It's a lot to learn about, isn't it? I hope you enjoy journalling here and find it useful and supportive. I don't think I would have enjoyed the success I have if it weren't for the people here who helped me and supported me. You'll soon get to know other people here and it will help a lot.
