GAPS Diary Day 4
GAPS Diary Day 4
Wow! Four days down!
I feel like I need to stand up in on of those meetings and confession.
My Name is…… and I am currently 4 days sober from sugar, grain, and dairy.
The more I go on with this diet the more clearly I am thinking. The first few days were just complete fog and tiredness. I really wished I could just sleep it off until I got better. I mentioned before that my rash was clearing. Well that has continued to clear more today. I have started to loss weight which is something I really need to do. I also have been testing my blood sugars and ketones levels to make sure I know what is going on in my body. So far so good. 🙂
Chicken stock and Sauerkraut juice.
Both Ben and I were feeling full after our morning stock so we didn’t bother with anymore food.
Dinner tonight was boil whole chicken, with Cauliflower mash boiled carrots and broccoli, with chicken stock/ gravy. Yum! I am enjoy it more and more.
SO tomorrow is day Five and after that we are moving on the stage two and introducing more foods into our diets. I am totally looking forward to the ferment veggies. With all this cooked food I find myself hanging out for something crunchy. :0)
Today was a bit of Testing day for me. Up until now I have been at home, with no vehicle and only the food we are allowed to eat. So today I had to catch the bus into town and pick the van up. While in town the children wanted a drink, we quickly stopped into a shop and got them water. The smells of that junk food were very present. I don’t think I would have coped as well if it was day 1, 2, or 3. Next was the supermarket. Which I must say I think I did really well, I just went in and got what I need and left as quickly as I came. No hanging around for us today.
Ben’s brain fog has cleared mainly, almost gone. However He is still having stomach pains, which is somewhat to be expected as he has has almost constant stomach pains for the last ten for so years that I have know him. I’m so looking forward to the day when He no longer has that pain.
