Healthy living

I know now that I am gluten intolerant, which to me is a blessing to finally know why I get severe cramping and to know it is NOT a cyst (I have PCOS and drs ALWAYS put my cramping down to cysts, even though it was different, yes, I can tell the difference between cyst pain and this pain, but Dr’s usually do not care.)

As such I have been researching HEAPS this week about what I should not be eating so I feel better. I am so glad there is so much advice out there. I have only been eating gluten free for a few days but I have lost 500g already. I am not doing it to lose weight though.

I have also run out of sugar this week and “accidentally” did not buy it, so it won’t get used here. I have managed 3 days so far and the kids are not bothered at all by it. I am trying to eliminate sugars in our house too.

I have written out an eating plan and it is soooo much easier to just know exactly what I am eating each day. It leaves no room for snacking. (For me anyway, I know that doesn’t work for everyone.)

Over the next week I will be learning more and experimenting with different recipes and things. I am buying only organic and going as close to the raw ingredient for all my cooking as possible.

What are you doing this week to lose weight/be healthier?
