I thought I've been sensitive to foods before, but this is ridiculous. I must be at 98% of my toxic load, with 100% meaning showing symptoms. It really makes me realize that Dr. D'Adamo wasn't joking when he compared avoids to poisons. I wouldn't be surprised if shellfish toxins are lectins themselves, much like other natural poisons. Many of the effects are strikingly similar, though they vary by a few degrees.
It only takes a tiny bit of avoids (or stress) to trigger something weird now. My body has a lot of work to do to complete the recovery, and I'm not wanting to stand in the way. I guess I not a person who can have my cake and taste it too.
You don't have to worry about me falling off the bandwagon for a while, it would hurt!
I have lost weight with my newfound compliance, though I'm not trying to lose weight. I suppose that if I'm eating lots of healthy, nutrient-laden food, then it's probably not such a bad thing to lose weight while breastfeeding. Most dieters think I'm nuts with how much I'm eating.
It's meat and vegetables all the way now, baby. At least I have my cayenne to kick things up a notch. Tried this: browned some ground beef, onion, garlic, compliant taco seasoning in a pan, added Great Northern Beans (allergy and fatigue beneficials, so it seems), torn kale, and broth. More seasonings, and behold, taco soup! That was easy and weirdly enough, the kale is a good stand in for the traditional soggy tortilla chips. Next time, I'll add some carrots. Gotta love those beneficial carrots.
Also had a lovely pineapple walnut salad. You guessed it, just fresh pineapple and walnuts. Couldn't be much simpler or tastier.
Keeping a lot of steamed broccoli on hand to toss into whatever, or snack on. Who says a snack has to be a cracker, broccoli makes a fine snack. My son is eating a lot more of it too, he has to have a few bites every time he sees me with it.
Lots of high-energy drinks too, combining homemade ginger syrup, herbal teas, carrot juice, prune juice, blueberry juice, lime or lemon juice, sparkling water, etc. in many interesting ways.
Anyway, sleep is beneficial too, so goodnight!
