    My journey to getting well

    I'm talking better while on this diet. It's nice. I can communicate with little issue now. I'm still not the most energetic person. My energy levels are nice though. I find myself staying up later here of late. The big item I've been concerned about of late has to do with how I feel after...

    My journey to getting well

    No pain or maybe better said little pain left today after yesterdays weight lifting. I've also lost some weight without much effort. The most important item I've had some very good stomach days of late. I'm not always feeling great to the stomach, as yesterday afternoon experienced some...

    My journey to getting well

    This would be big if it turns out this way. I weight lifted on my legs early in the week. I didn't feel any pain afterwards. Instead I had more energy as a result. This morning I worked out on my chest muscles. So far it has been the same, little to no pain, and instead I feel more...

    My journey to getting well

    So far so good with avoiding wheat, red meat, and dairy. I'm liking how I feel. I can still tire myself out with to much exercise. The stomach is not great. Overall though I am seeing an improvement, with considerably less brain fog, and more energy. The stomach is improved some too. Well...

    My journey to getting well

    Since avoiding wheat the brain fog continues to improve. I'm feeling decent this morning. So I'm back to the diet idea I was trying over New Years, avoiding red meat and dairy as an allergy. Avoiding wheat due to it being difficult to digest. Dairy products and wheat almost always go...

    My journey to getting well

    Worth noting, today I avoided wheat. And the brain fog has largely lifted. I also feel more energetic. I'm not back as I was, but I can tell I'm feeling improved. So I'll add wheat to the avoid list, which is easy to do as I rarely eat wheat. It has only been this week that I picked up some...

    My journey to getting well

    It's been a mixed week. I've been feeling fatigued and tired all week. It can be difficult to concentrate and my memory hasn't been all that great while fatigued. It's nothing new. It's an old battle against fatigue. I suspect now that the fatigue has been due to eating to much fiber or...

    My journey to getting well

    Since I began to once again avoid beef, dairy and pork, it's a bit depressing that I'm retracking this ground again, I notice my skin is looking healthier. I'm pleased about that. Energy levels have improved, sometimes. I'm still not the most energetic person but exercising has been easier...

    My journey to getting well

    I really do have much much better energy today after avoiding beef. So that's it, avoid red meat, and melons. I'm likely to have some issue some up in the future. I shouldn't turn to eating beef or dairy if that happens, but instead suspect somethign else as causing the issue, such as eating...

    My journey to getting well

    Nope, I screwed up again. When I began eating beef again I had terrible stomach pains and my energy levels dropped greatly. I thought the lack of energy due to exercising to much but that wasn't the case. So I need to get it in my head that I need to avoid beef. I know pork to be a serious...

    My journey to getting well

    I continue to do well with avoiding nightshade. So I'll stop writing once again thinking I have an answer, unless something comes up. I'll avoid nightshade (potatoes, tomatoes, red peppers, tobacco) along with genetically modified soy since soy has been combined with a nightshade, pork and...

    My journey to getting well

    Stomach remins doing well. I'm quite pleased. I'll keep with avoiding nightshade. It's night and day difference with eating potatoes and not eating potatoes. Additionally I have clear memories I being violently sick after eating spaghetti. I remain tired and fatigued today. I've not...

    My journey to getting well

    Stomach still doing well this morning. I think I have an answer with avoiding nigthshade family. The stomach has been under stress with exercises the past coupe of days and continues to do OK. I'm exhausted this morning. I've over done it with to much exercising of late, so for today I'll...

    My journey to getting well

    Nice, the stomach continues to do well for the day. I'm exhausted today. It's nice to have extra energy but I'm waring myself out with all the exercise. I'll keep avoiding nightshade along with the other regulars.

    My journey to getting well

    My stomach is doing much better so far since avoiding nightshade. I might have an answer with that. Will see over a few more days. My energy levels are not so good this morning. This is most likely due to weight lifting done yesterday. Overall though I'm feeling upbeat and positive...
