I love to eat. I always have. I just love food. Unfortunately, over the past year or so food hasn’t always loved me back. I started to realize that I was always feeling bloated and uncomfortable after eating. Even if I didn’t eat much. I was getting a lot of stomach aches. I just felt yucky. I tried to figure out what was causing it and cut out some things but it kept happening. My doctors had no answers. Finally a friend suggested I check out Dr. Jillian Teta and her Fix Your Digestion program. I read the book but was hesitant to to try an elimination diet. I couldn’t imagine giving up bread while training for a marathon! So I decided to wait. Then it was the holidays, and who wants to give up sugar at Christmas? So finally I decided February would be the month. My mom decided to give it a go with me. We cut sugar, gluten, dairy, legumes, and night shades. It was so hard. No peanut butter in my morning oats? No bread basket at dinner? I was hungry. I got bored with my food choices. I whined a lot about eating. BUT, I started to feel better. I wasn’t feeling sick after eating. I wasn’t bloated all the time. I even lost a few pounds. I admit I wasn’t perfect. I added peanut butter back in week 2 and bread back in week 3. I ate a piece of chocolate here and there. But here I am at day 24 still standing. I’m hoping that this will help me learn what foods my body can’t handle and I can resume my love affair with food. Do you have any food intolerances or think you do? Do you need help learning how to heal your digestive tract?
