Dietary Restrictions

Having dietary restrictions is hard, because sadly it cuts most foods out of your diet and it makes it difficult to eat. I'm gluten intolerant, lactose intolerant, soy intolerant and insulin resistance (that means my body doesn't digest carbs well.)

I've talked to my doctor and my best bet is to remove most carbohydrates. Even eating some fruits and vegetables make me sleepy, mostly the sweet or starchy ones. But, it can be hard find recipes or ready made foods that don't have gluten, lactose or soy in them.

I've been eating very well for the past three months, that's how I lost the weight I did. Unfortunately, a tooth abscess threw a wrench in that plan. The only that I could eat where foods that were soft and didn't require lots of chewing. So, I've been on an off on kick with carbs, luckily it's usually concentrated in salads or seeds/nuts of sometime. Today, I really wanted a jumbo honey bun, and I had one and it was tasty. Sadly, my body didn't like it and requested and exit and quickly as possible. My stomach is grumbling in protest and I have brain fog from the increase in insulin. Boo! There's always tomorrow to begin again.


  1. Yikes on all the food restrictions...I am lactose intolerant as well. However, I'll eat ice cream (because the kind with milk is just BETTER) and pay for I know how that feels.

    I added a blog roll to my blog and you're on it =)

    Have a great weekend!

  2. Bleh, lactose intoerlance sucks so much. It's like, why can't I be allergic to something I don't like, like lima beans. I think I'm going to spend part of this weekend adjusting my diet.
