As you know broken records repeatedly play the same tune over and over. Well I’m approaching that same song, with this post. I committed to writing this journal to help others and to use it as tool and for me to stay committed to the SCD diet. Unfortunately to stay true to you and to myself I need to come clean on a few accounts.
Moving to a new city and into a new apartment is always a bit of an adventure. I have moved more times than anyone I know in the last 5 years and I still have not figured out a better way of doing it other than trial and error. So my last week has mostly been crazy to say the least. I had stock piled a bunch of cooked SCD legal food just in case I happened to burn down my new kitchen (every stove is different I swear). I stuck mainly to the basics, of squash, chicken and fish all week because I wanted to help reset my system after the past couple weeks of turmoil. Many people will actually return right to the intro diet if they feel that they’ve had a major stumble but I didn’t have the means at this time.
Leaky Gut Syndrome easily explained and backed by scientific references. Leaky gut is often times the key holding you back from health you want.
I’m always on the look out for SCD legal products that can be easily purchased and integrated into my everyday life. Lately, I’ve been looking to spice my diet up a bit (pun intended). So I’ve been doing some research on different spices that I can find in my local grocery and health food stores. One company that I’ve come across and have bought several products from is Frontier Spices.
I have finally completed my move! It’s taken a solid 3 weeks of packing, moving, job transitioning, and finally unpacking but it is done. Last week my eating was all over the place, I didn’t always have my proboitics, yogurt, betaine HCL and sometimes properly prepared SCD legal food. I was forced to basically adapt during the days of moving on the fly. This caused me to eat a whole bag of what I thought was SCD legal trail mix (although probably not) and advanced un-cooked vegetables and fruit.
fter last weekend’s episode of eating illegal’s, I’d hoped that I didn’t do to much serious damage to my healing process. I’m happy to report that I think I’m going to make a full recovery (whew! I know)…in a couple weeks. The beginning of this week I experienced a couple days of higher than normal gas with BM’s that were all over the map. In the middle of the week during my haste to pack up my belongings to move this weekend, I ran out of my Betaine HCL, yogurt and my multi-vitamin for several days.
We stumbled on this article over at comfy tummy and were shocked. A new senate bill is being proposed that seeks to increase the costs of dietary supplements and restrict access to them. The bill also would grant the FDA authority over what supplements we are “allowed” to have!
After the roller-coaster ride last week I thought this week would be a rather low key return to working on my health and this diet. Boy was I wrong! I’m going to come right out and tell everyone I cheated, I fell off the diet for a good 24hour period this weekend.
