|« Please... Squash me...||Seasonal thoughts »|
Oh boy…. It’s around these holiday times that the ERFYBT goes completely amok…avoids coming from everywhere and discipline is non-existent for myself. It all started last week at work where the company was bringing in free lunch for all the employees if we hit certain sales numbers for the day…we did it 4 days in a row and were rewarded with Pizza on two of the days, Subs on the second day and Pork Ribs with fries and Cole slaw on the last day…Type O nightmare to put it mildly. I have to confess that I ate all four lunches (how could Mike succumb to this?...easy…December is a busy month for me work wise and an expensive one). I’m too busy and need the extra money, hence when free food is offered and you do not have time, it becomes very convenient if not downright painful to eat avoids. I had all the classic symptoms of a type O avoid diet last week; brain fog an hour after lunch, a bit of constipation during the week, blowing a little more gas than usual due to the excess cheese and dairy, topping it off with too much chocolate and caffeine and you have one out of control O (bouts of grumpiness and anxiety thrown in). To think at one time I felt like this all the time. I’m on holiday till Jan3rd and after Christmas is over, it’s back to 90% compliancy for me.
Christmas is a good time for BTDer’s to reflect on how good it feels when one is compliant. Meanwhile, till the holiday season is over, I’m packing Deflect heavily, because at this time of year, love knows many Lectins.
Season’s greetings and good health to all
