Well, I arrived home yesterday afternoon expecting to see a fridge somewhat less healthy than when I left, but still in good shape. After all, my husband is a great cook and before we moved in together, was quite healthy. Admittedly, he loves his wheat, but he used to cook some great meals for himself and we share the cooking duty 50/50 when I'm at home.
Let's just say, the fridge had seen better days. The only vegies it contained were ones that I'd bought before I'd left. Lettuce that was well past its prime, rockmelon (cantaloupe) that had grown new species of mould (thank goodness it was still in its wrapper), bananas that were completely black. It did though have two Pizza Hut boxes, some garlic bread, V drinks and RedBull. Basically a nightmare.
He hadn't eaten completely badly whilst I was away though, he had bought himself lunches each day (yet another wheat-fest of sandwiches), ate some food from the freezer like lamb chops and steak with frozen vegetables and cooked himself some sausages. Amazingly though, my B positive husband also managed to buy some chicken sausage rolls.
So, how's he feeling after this? In short, not great- upset tummy, bloated, not too much energy. You see, we're having a bit of a weight loss competition at the moment. We're both feeling a bit chunky so decided that we would set goals to reach by our birthdays in August. Needless to say, he's a little further from his goal at the moment and I think now is the time to capitalise and transition him more to the BTD.
He's now realising that what he eats does affect how he feels, especially as he's getting a bit older. I went out yesterday afternoon so that we now have fresh fruit and vegies, the fruit is chopped up in the fridge ready for him to have and after tomorrow there will be healthy snacks/meals on hand for him. I am wondering if I'll try him on the Genotype diet for a little while, but we'll see how it goes.
