It’s been just over a month that I have giving up dieting. What has changed? Well, I am happier, relaxed and not so stressed about food. It’s been freeing. The first couple weeks I had to learn to stop reading the nutritional stats. That was tough. I was so used to looking at them no matter what it was and if there were no stats, I didn’t buy it. Now I only read ingredients, just to make sure there is no wheat flour.
My mom is worried I am going to gain lots of weight. I told her it’s ok if I gain a bit, but I won’t let myself gain too much. From when I started this, up until today I have only gained 3 lbs. Really not a big deal. Clothes are a bit tighter.
My digestive system has adjusted too. I can poop! LOL Before, when doing keto it was a chore. Hard small poops that caused pain and hemorrhoids. I thought it was because of my IBS. I was wrong! Change to eating everything and now I poop like a normal person. And the hemorrhoids are not screaming at me. Yes, they screamed at me. Seriously, it’s a “relief” to go to the bathroom and empty out and feel great. Been years since I felt good after a shit.
One side effect, my face looks like a greasy pizza. I don’t know what is going on! So much oil and pimples. It’s like I’m in my teens again. Not happy with it. I’m hoping it will clear up soon. Not going to stress about it. I know it’s part of the changes my body is going through.
I am taking regular vitamins. Some are for menopause. Damn hot flashes. Been 2 weeks since I had one. think that the Evening Primrose and Maca root are helping for that. The others are for various reason. I’ll do a separate post about the supplements I take.
Anything else… I just feel better, all over. 🙂
