At the forum, Drea said something great that is now my marching order when it comes to avoiding the addictive avoids...dairy being my biggie, since wheat is no longer at all tempting to me.
"My will power comes in the form of not eating that first piece"
You see, a few months ago I heard through the grapevine that somebody I respect, thinks I'm not healthy, since there are so many foods I can't eat. So I went about trying to prove that I could survive as well as anybody while eating like they do. Maybe I did prove my point, I felt as good as most people. I also proved the point that I want to feel better, and look better, and be stronger. It's not about surviving in the same boat as everyone else, I want to be able to leave the boat and swim to the sandy beach.
So then I decided ok, I have will power, if I eat milk one day, I can stop the next, or I can eat it in moderation. I sort of could, but I didn't have quite as much will power as I hoped, and I wasn't losing weight or feeling great.
Casomorphaholics* anonymous, maybe in the future, post-genotype diet, there will be such a group. So, now I've been sober for 2 days. I don't keep the milk about, my husband has some but I moved it to the basement refrigerator so it wouldn't tempt me while I'm in withdrawal.
After two days, I am feeling better, better than average, better than last week, just plain better. My joints don't hurt, my heel doesn't hurt, my fingers don't hurt, etc.
