It is really difficult to avoid eating a new (untested) food! I don’t mean my willpower is failing – it’s just difficult to eat out and to eat at other people’s homes when there are so few things you can consume. Yesterday I tried to have a friendly foods day again, but again was unsuccessful. I accidentally consumed some red pepper flakes in a salad. Peppers of any kind are nightshades – a known problem for me. I have a patch of eczema that becomes inflamed whenever I eat them, so I’m pretty sure it’s a real intolerance. As soon as I tasted that spice I knew I had ruined my day of friendly foods.
- Yesterday’s weight: 193.8
- Today’s weight: 194.0
- Difference: +0.2 lbs.
So we’ll try again today. I’ll be back to work so things will be more routine.
Fasting blood sugar was 95 again today. Two days in a row in the 90s hasn’t happened since May of last year (2015). If it happens again tomorrow it will 3 days in a row – which hasn’t happened in years. I’m not sure what to attribute this to…the antifungals? The probiotics I’ve been taking since I started the antifungals? The low-inflammatory diet? It’s definitely not the low carb because I’ve been doing that for months now and it was actually trending up before I started the Plan and the yeast medication. Weird.
