Yesterday I added eggs to my diet. The results:
- Yesterday’s weight: 194.4
- Today’s weight: 195.1
- Difference: +0.9 lbs.
Well that’s a shame. What am I going to do with all that homemade mayonnaise I just made? Eggs are off the menu.
The current standings:
- Friendly foods: chicken, beef, unrefined coconut oil, butter, cooked vegetables (kale, carrots, onions, garlic, celery), fresh mozzarella cheese, dandelion tea, raw mixed greens, lemon juice
- Reactive foods: ham, avocado, eggs
I didn’t realize it but I’ve been feeling much better over the past week – mood better, anxiety less, thinking clearly. Yesterday I was having a hard time concentrating and my mood wasn’t as good – much more negative thinking. Also, about 3-4 hours after breakfast (eggs) I had abdominal cramping and diarrhea, which is very usual for me. And – my hunger was higher. I needed to eat more to get through the day yesterday than in the days leading up to it. Food intolerance symptoms.
So at this point I’ve determined that the things I was eating most days – ham, avocado, and eggs – are reactive for me and causing inflammation and weight gain. How awesome it is to know that!
I’ll be having a friendly-foods day today to re-stabilize.
Another observation – My fasting blood sugar has been coming down over the past week. Two weeks ago it was in the 130s and sometimes 140s Now it’s under 110 – today it was 99. I’ve been taking no supplements that would effect blood sugar – just prescription medications (diflucan for yeast and meds for hypertension). I stopped taking Metformin over a month ago.
