It’s so daunting to think of. The fact that I’m going to change my diet. But I’m tired of not feeling well. And food is one of the things that I can control.
I’m getting tired of not feeling well. And my doctors are kind of meh 🤷♂️, when it comes to what to do with me. I’m symptomatic, but I’m not in a flare, and my blood work is normal. So, what can you do? My rheumatologist wants my biologic to stay the same. And I’m currently on 3mg of budesonide. But I’m sure once it’s all gone, I’ll be done with it.
Which only leaves diet. Well, and exercise(yoga for me!). Along with seeing my chiropractor and acupuncturist. This past weekend when I was seeing my chiropractor and my acupuncturist they both mentioned diet to me when I told them what was going on. My body is having a lot of immune responses right now, and is very unhappy.
So now, I’m trying to find out what I can about the Autoimmune Protocol(AIP). And the Paleo diet. And it’s all a bit overwhelming and daunting. I’m hoping to get another book that helps to explain it more and what I need to do. Along with keeping a food journal again.
I know that my food tolerances have changed since the last time I did a food journal because I can eat cucumbers again. Which is weird, I know. But it’ll be good for me to figure out what foods I can eat and what I can’t.
The AIP will be slightly more complicated because I also suffer from fructose malabsorption. Which means I don’t process fructose very well. Fructose is found in a lot of plants, veggies and fruits so I will really have to double check everything when I start up this diet.
And that is where meal planning comes into play. I found a meal plan layout that I like. And I found out about a meal planning website that has a lot of the AIP meals on it and it will help you schedule everything. But it’s a paid service and I’m still deciding if I want to try it or not. I really wish they had a 7 day trail or something.
Until next time ✌
