Posting for a reminder- even Nutritionist/Health & Wellness Coaches have to tweak and rework things in their food habits/life….
Okay… The eliminate/reboot (started about a week or so ago) changes to my eating have been eye opening and not easy…
So kudos to those that have food allergies and sensitivities….not that I didn’t think you all were rock stars before…
Since starting… I have realized that a few things I was consuming and have removed were affecting me more than I thought…
See I have PCOS and Hashimoto’s disease (autoimmune diseases)…
I have known with PCOS- low carbs, low glycemic foods, consume anti-inflammatory foods( ie tumeric etc), high fiber and high lean proteins along with avoid processed foods/refined sugars/fried foods…
Then there’s the Hashimoto’s…thankfully above fits this autoimmune disease food requirements with a few extras….
Avoid or eliminate- Gluten/grains (wheat, oats, rice, corn, quinoa etc), soy (soy milk, soy sauce, tofu etc) and whole dairy….ugh…
So currently I’m working on re-lowering my carbs for the PCOS/Hashimoto’s while eliminating gluten/grains…. I have to say I’m starting to feel better…didn’t realize how bad I was feeling due to my fall off the low carbs and now with being almost gluten free…need to read labels better ..sigh… I’m a work in progress with the last part…
Figure if I can continue and get this big hurdle jumped in the next 30-45 days… I’ll start on either the soy or the rest of the dairy components…
Fingers crossed… Hoping flare will settle down now and I’ll feel better enough to start exercising again soon..
