When I was a little tired, a piece of chocolate, but just one. When I was frazzled – coffee and a little bite of something with carbs. When I was upset – ice cream. And on and on and on.
Of course I always chose the “low fat” and “low calorie” options because I knew that would help to even things out. It did not.
So…since I’ve begun this adventure I have given up all foods that contain flour (yep, pasta too) as well as rice (yep, brown too) and all processed sugar. I have to say – the cravings are completely gone. I wouldn’t believe it if I wasn’t the one living through it – but honestly. Cross my heart.
An added bonus is that I’ve also gotten rid of headaches – not one since I began. I used a lot of Advil over the years, mostly due to a dull, throbbing headache. It worked, of course, but I realize it was just masking the real problem.
Tomorrow I’m going in for a food sensitivity test – I’m pretty sure flour will show up. I’m hoping dairy does not but we’ll see.
I challenge you to try to go a few days without any flour. You’ll be surprised at how many foods contain it – check the label!! Just that one change may surprise you. And you will most definitely feel better.
Cross my heart again.
