Last year I made a great resolution, to get back into the Blood Type Diet. This year I need to make that same resolution, as I've gotten off track over the holidays. I did fine through Thanksgiving, but Christmas was a different story. I've sworn off dairy again, but it is working out to be quite difficult to give up again. At least I don't have any more milk-laden temptations in the house...I'd like to say that's because I threw them away, but I ate some of them first then tossed them. I've been reading about opioids from gluten and casein as related to autism. Apparently, if you don't digest them fully (and I'm sure I don't) then they can form opioids which can be detected in the urine. The druglike effects of milk did not go unnoticed, and definitely put me on a bad trip, followed by my current withdrawal. I really don't want to feel that way again. I did have a nice cup of rice milk hot cocoa with glycerine today, that seems to help the craving. My last batch of rice milk turned out quite thick, it's fine when heated but I think I added too much millet.
My other enemies have reared their heads as well...gluten-free but avoid-full snacks and sugar. I was afraid I'd gain weight over the holidays, and I have, but I will lose it again, shouldn't take long! Back to beef, salads, veggies, blueberries, and other good BTD foods. Got to get my body in gear for another year!
I'd like to offer my condolences to any of you who were affected by the tsunami, or have friends and loved ones in those areas. I really cannot grasp the magnitude of what happened to so many, I find it very difficult to try to understand it without feeling overwhelmed by sadness. May God bless and strengthen you.
