    I have - they are pretty lovely. I'm going to take a ton of them when I'm home visiting my mom next week. Let her pay the water bill...

    What are the discoloured patches you have - are they pigmentation?
    "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."

    If you zoom out on your internet browser you can see it defined better.

    I used to get something similar on my chest that my allergist told me was yeast. I have an anti-fungal soap he gave me that helped clear it up (the chest one) so I'll try it on my neck... I'm not sure if I have it here, though. It might be at my mom's.

    Wednesday, May 15

    Sleep/Energy:
    - Slept 10pm-8am. TEN hours! Phew. Woke up once or twice with heart palpitations. I think that soy sauce actually fucked me up.
    - Energy great until the sprints. Sleepy around 5:30pm

    Food/Digestion:
    - 9:30am: 50g salmon and 1 egg scrambled in coconut oil and aminos, 1 cup rice.
    - 1:30-2:30pm: 1 apple and 3 cantaloupe spears with maple syrup and cinnamon; 85 g lamb, 1/2 cup coconut milk ice cream
    - 6:30pm: 1 can tuna + 2 eggs + rice cooked in coconut oil with curry and aminos; 1 orange
    - 8pm: ~2 tbs maple syrup, 1 tbs cocoa, salt and vanilla. So good.
    -Liquids: carrot juice (salted, 1 cup)
    - Going out tonight but not going to drink. Alcohol has been proven muy mal for my body. I will probably have a tonic with juice or something just to make it look like I am participating, but my choice would be to stick to water.

    - Since I had it measured, ~2000 kcal. 230 g carb, 130 g protein, 65 g fat.

    - Bloat: bad at the end of the day .
    - BM's: ok

    Thirst:
    - Not excessive. Will take this out of the daily journal since coconut water seems to have done the trick.

    Supps:
    - Gelatin
    - Noopepts (10mg x 2)
    - Magnesium Citrate (400mg. BMs not great today, so upping it)

    Temp:
    - Great. Will take this out of the daily journal as well.

    Acne:
    - Healing slowly… I think. Kind of looks like what it used to before the fruit and sugar experiment. Smeared honey all over it this morning. Hopefully that will calm it down. Sadness.

    Exercise:
    Still taking it easy. I awoke this morning with a serious wrench in my neck and I don't want to aggravate it.
    Morning:
    - CC progression: pushups (10 x 3), flat leg raises (20 x 2)
    - Jumping squats; pulled myself into a couple of headstands (only 2 because of my neck)
    Afternoon:
    - Jogged about a mile to the park (up and down hill)
    - sprints (only 2. Asthma)
    - Wanted to use the jungle gym but it was raining and I didn't want to slip and die.


    Mental State:
    I don’t usually comment on this because… no one cares (including me), but I got put in a really bad place today when I picked up my lab work from school. It was only for standard bacteria and parasites and I knew it was going to be negative but I was still so let down that it was. I calmly walked out of the health center, got in my car, drove home, walked into my bedroom, placed a pillow over my mouth, and screamed bloody murder. I then put my running shoes on and jogged to the park in the rain to do sprints.

    I will get the tests I really want when I see my GI doc in Los Angeles next week. I don't want to think about what my reaction will be when those show up negative as well. Le sigh…

    −−−−−−−−−−−−−−−−−−−−−−−−

    Mom and I are constantly sending each other food porn (both from our own kitchens and from off the internet) but for some reason THIS made my mouth water more than usual. This looks more appetizing to me than the cake pops they're meant to mimic. Dates + meat = real candy.

    Yay to coconut water! You might have seen in my journal that I regularly drink a litre a day (at least) - it's a lifesaver for me.

    Odd as it sounds, I'm sorry to hear about your (good) results..! I know how shit it is to feel terrible and have someone tell you theres nothing wrong / it's all in your head. A really extreme example is my mum, who was sick for 20 years before she was diagnosed with hashimotos.

    Speaking of which, the way she was diagnosed eventually was by having a scan of her thyroid. The way I was diagnosed was with a scan of my womb. After you get a full hormone panel, and if nothing shows up again, perhaps you could get a scan of your stomach done? Or even a biopsy? (they're not just for cancer).

    You still have lots of options. And in the interim you seem to be experiencing health improvements? Keep the faith!

    And finally - YUM!!! Making that today

    Im pretty sure that is a fungus. I had similar spots on my shoulder that would lighten and darken. My friend also had it all over his chest for awhile. Mine just went away after i got off low carb if i recall.

    Maybe you do have a bacterial/fungal problem and anything yeasty makes it show up? Could explain the bloating as well.

    I do see that! You do like your coconut water. It is mighty tasty. What has it done for you, exactly?

    Yeah, I know it. I've had an ultra sound of everything (including my ovaries. They're both there, so that's good) and I've had an endoscopy. I can't remember if they took anything, but all they saw was a little inflammation. No shit, doc. But I am experiencing a LOT of health improvements! And so many of them have all occurred very recently. All thanks to Zach's advice, really. I should send him a fruit basket or something

    Did you make them? Didyoudidyoudidyoudidyou?? You must take photos if you haven't already eaten them all!

    But noooooooobody listened to me, did they? I'm telling you, fungas make the most sense. It's why ketosis worked for a short time, why I cannot drink wine or eat grapes, eat anything with bakers yeast, can't breathe when I eat nuts that aren't completely fresh, can't do ACV or vinegars, etc. And the stomach bug I had would have made it worse because it probably killed off a lot of the beneficial bacteria / yeast that was keeping it (mostly) in check. But what do I do? I am definitely no longer low carb (at least 200g carbs/day, it seems) and my attempts to repopulate my gut with good bacteria has been futile (in the past, at least. I could try again). Maybe I'll just have to bite the bullet and try goat's or sheep's yogurt. Between the time when I stopped eating gluten and when I contracted whatever that illness was, I was eating a ton of yogurt (bovine) and I was in fabulous health. I just can't seem to tolerate the dairy proteins anymore.

    Wow. If you have a gut feeling (pun intended) that it's a fungus, maybe it is? I presume you got tested for it?

    Funny you say that about ketosis - when I was in it the fungus (candida) on my toenails disappeared! Then came back

    What have you done to repopulate your gut? I sure hope Chocotaco doesn't suddenly launch into this journal - he'll start telling you to get a poop transplant or something

    I had unquenchable thirst, and coconut water was the only thing that got rid of it! Plus it's delicious. I've been drinking it for a few years now.

    Ha, haven't made them - yet! Maybe tomorrow. Will post a pic!

    Re: fungus. Heres what I would do if I were you.

    Jump in the ocean as much as possible and take daily baths in magnesium sulfate, sea salt and baking soda.

    Get as much sun on your entire body as you can. Daily naked tanning if possible.

    Supplement with coconut water, coconut oil and baking soda. Use coconut oil on your skin.

    Eat a residue free diet. Mainly fresh juiced fruit/veggies juice, gelatine, dairy, a bit of lean meat and eggs. One carrot salad a day, shredded carrots, coconut oil, salt, lemon juice.

    Salt everything, drink only salted spring water and maybe some hard liquor like vodka.
