I was diagnosed in 1998. I have had numerous surgeries, and the pharmaceutics just arent working for me anymore. I decided in Sept 2012 my goal for 2013 was to cure myself. Thus began the biggest research project in my history. It lead me to paleo, and marks daily apple. If food is my first line of defense, I needed to figure out what i was eating that hurts me. Through elimination diets, I have determined, my enemy # 1 is corn, and corn products (isnt that stuff just in everything?)
Enemy # 2 is sugar and products that turn to sugar in my body (starches - peas, potatoes, rice, pasta, bread, wheat products
so, I dont eat any of it anymore. I am finishing up this round of steroids, and my after next colonoscopy ( every 8 weeks like clockwork for 3 years now) I am quitting all the doctor drugs. Its a HUGE scary decision, but its made.
IMO, the disease is in remission, and my symptoms are completely gone. My health is fully in my control. What i eat determines how my machine runs.
I have read this half fast works wonders for the digestive system. I think it might, but I started taking magnesium supplements same time I started this, so,i am having a reaction to the supplements until my body acclimatizes.
The weight loss is far from the reason I am here, but it will be a lovely bonus.
Today and tomorrow are up days, as of yet, Im not calorie counting either up or down. I may have to, but for now, Its nice to remember what it feels like to have hunger.
