Blah

Well, I have not stopped eating like an idiot yet.

I know, not very nice language.  I know I should speak more kindly about myself…whatever, I’m speaking from the heart.  And honestly, sometimes I can be an idiot.

Yesterday I barked at a teenager for poor customer service.  I felt really low after that.  That’s not something I do when I’m feeling good…and I’ve brought on an aggressive, impatient mood again by eating the wrong things.  It’s hard to avoid them, but I could be doing better with the planning so I don’t get in situations where I’m starving with nothing to eat.  Then again, when you can only eat about 5 things it’s hard to do – am I really going to bring kale soup along with me when I go grocery shopping?

Ok, I’ll stop being the victim.  I have a great life.  I just need to plan better.

I have not been prioritizing my health at all for several weeks, and it’s interesting to see what’s happening.  Let’s move on to the science:

fasting blood sugar

What does this graph tell me?

  • The yeast protocol had no effect.
  • The elimination diet did have an effect but was unsustainable because very few things made it through the testing phase and the diet remained extremely limited.
  • Blood sugar (and also inflammation?) goes up and down with weight, regardless of eating low carb or not.
  • I’m headed in the wrong direction at the moment.

Around June 1st I started reacting to almost everything and also started having a very hard time sticking to only the safe foods I had identified (kale soup and chicken, mostly).  I think I was starting to react to things previously determined to be safe, actually.

Now, it’s been maybe a month of eating…kind of whatever.  I’m not overeating or eating past full…but I’m also not tracking calories.  I’m having new symptoms lately:

  • Swollen, sore tongue
  • Joint pain
  • Enlarged lymph glands that come and go

I’m managing to make myself sicker.

I know eating a very high protein breakfast has helped in the past, and honestly I’ve been skipping breakfast lately and getting very sloppy – just not planning at all. So it really is time to stop goofing off and start paying attention and prioritizing myself again.

I’m not really an idiot.  I’m just sick.

  1. Hormones matter talks a lot about thiamine and hypoxia in children and adults. Could the allithiamine be causing a deficiency in other vitamins and minerals? Do you take niacinamide B3 also, how about folate B7? I know your greens could have magnesium, wonder if it is enough. have you ever had elevated eosinophils? This could also be the cause of food intolerances.

  2. Hi Toni – I only took the allithiamine for 1 week, and then I was feeling crappy so I stopped taking everything that has not become trusted by me over time. I think if a B1 deficiency was causing me a lot of problems i would have started feeling better soon after taking it. It just doesn’t really add up to me – I’ve been taking a high-quality multivitamin for 18 months, including bioavailable forms of the B vitamins. I went to the Hormones Matter website and couldn’t get past the sea of small type. Is there a particular page/link you think would be useful?
