Are mushrooms the only food that you have added to your diet?
What type of mushrooms were they?

Well after about 40 years of eating c**p foods (standard American welfare diet as a child); extreme dieting and binging and on and on and on... I cannot expect my brain chemistry to heal overnight!  Geeeezzz I sure would like to feel 100% after almost 4 weeks but the fact is that I don't!  What I do feel is extremely grounded more everyday and I'm able to choose my healthy Hunter foods if I feel like eating more than moderate instead of running out for junk.  

After reading that article in Psychology Today that I posted on the Food Addiction thread, I just cannot justify trying to make myself feel better by indulging in foods that will cause my brain chemistry to spirl out again.  

What this diet 'is' doing for me at this point is keeping me steady when it comes to handling my brain trying to re-adjust itself.  I expect this may take some time... maybe a few months before I wake up without brain fog.

And according to that article (and more importantly my own experience), one bite of sugar will throw me out again... so I cannot justify throwing all the work I'm doing down the toilet for some desperate scoop of ice cream or 1/2 loaf of French bread or 5 candy bars... or pizza or fries... or whatever it ends of being.

So what I'm having after almost a month of really being very compliant is BRAIN DETOX!!!

Anybody else?  sigh.

Funkymuse, I used to have frozen yogurt every day. I had no idea that the stuff was about as far removed from real cultured yogurt as day is from night.  Anyway, now when I have some remote thought about how good something like that would taste, I have real vanilla yogurt in the fridge into which I put whatever fresh fruit is handy - right now it is strawberries - and enjoy it to the fullest. And it feels so good in my stomach! I don't eat a whole lot of this yogurt at a time - maybe 3 ounces, but it does the trick.

Another thing I have now to nibble on in the AM if I have a need for more protein is this paneer/farmer's cheese. I love it! A walnut or two along with it makes it even better.

I wore a favorite skirt tonight when I went out that I haven't been able to wear in a long time, and that really gave me a lift too. My jackets feel soooo much more comfortable.

I'm sure I went through some sort of brain detox after I was on the diet about a month or less. I thought it was the diet driving me crazy at first, but I meant to keep going with it whatever it was.

Thank goodness you found the right article to read at just the right time to give you the boost that you needed.

Hopefully, the brain fog will lift soon and you will feel wonderful, wonderful!

Quoted from Andrea AWsec

I just had lasik surgery so the bloodshot eyes are a constant right now.
  


Hey Dottie, I had lasik at 44. How do you like it? I went into Manahattan to have it done because I didn't trust the local eye docs here in Jersey.  I love being able to see without glasses. A big perk is not having to use reading glasses. At my age I should be using them but I don't need them (only the teeny tiny print on vitamin bottles)

Well I finally had a clear day yesterday!  No brain fog... no horrid dark depression.  Not completely bright eyed and bushy tailed but much better than I have been for 3 weeks of being pretty darn strict!  

I am officially 4 weeks into the regime and I have had a few black dot items but nothing of any huge substance.  A couple bits of coconut here and there, some cherries, a couple of swallows of coffee during the brain fog desperation, parsley (wow... just realized that was a black dot!); and there and we accidently ate Swordfish not knowing it was a complete avoid!  Hubby got some tummy issues from that!

I also am still weaning myself off of soy milk using Hazelnut milk which has guar gum and carrageenan - both complete avoids.

So I just wanted to report that the brain fog and depression days are hopefully coming to an end as I forge ahead on this eating regime.  I thought it would never end! And having that depression really made me aware of how bad some people must have it.  It makes you not care about anything at all.  It's really something.
