...Eliminate the negative.

I'm embarking on an elimination diet, starting January 1, 2017.

A rocky start

I haven't posted because I've had a hell of a time eliminating everything I need to in order to give this experiment a fair shot, primarily chocolate. And Diet Coke.   The good news (I guess) is that I can tell now that those foods make me sick, so I have even more reason to cut them out. The GAPS Diet prescribes lots of fermented foods, so I was hoping to come up with a homemade, fizzy, fermented drink to replace the soda, like fermented lemonade or beet kvass, but I haven't had much luck



What to eliminate, and why

This year I mentioned some minor GI complaints to my doctor, who suggested trying a low FODMAP diet which is all scientific, and stuff. Cool, but I have a fair bit of experience with low carb diets, and have considered going Paleo many times. As such, I'm comfortable being grain-free for the most part. I do cheat. A lot. ANYWAY. I discovered the paleo Autoimmune Protocol, which looked like a fun tough interesting challenge, and I'm not really halfway there already, as a low carber. In addit

      Type 3B hair ... I just had my BF chop it to chin length, shortest I've ever gone. I'm hoping it just explodes to an Irish afro. It took me decades to learn how to embrace it.
