No no no, no feelings hurt here. It just feels like such a monumental change that I felt so good about, that makes it hard. I can get over it in time, if I have to.
I just thank goodness that I have healthy kids with no discernable gut issues or any other health issues, for that matter. Not that I don't want to keep making sure that they stay that way, but I am not trying to fix things like it sounds like most of not all of you are.
What do I eat now? Or rather strictly E2L. Fruits, veggies, beans, some fats (avocado, nuts or olive oil) and 1 serving of a grain per day. The guideline is 1 lbs raw veggies, 1 lbs cooked veggies, at least 4 fruits, one fat serving (can't remember the measurements on that), at least one cup of beans and as mentioned before, one serving of grains (optional). This is the basic plan. After the first 6 weeks, you can go to a 90/10 plan, as in stick to this for 90% of the time.
Since my "official" diagnosis of IBS 1.5 weeks ago, I have changed a few things. I have upped my fat intake (thank you firefaery!). I have started eating more eggs. And since this weekend after my flax seed mixture was finished, I started taking CLO. I got Carlson capsules because that is what I could get at my coop. I am taking 9 capsules per day. I am not sure that is exactly right, but figure I will get the straight oil next time and then it will be easier to measure. I just started enzymes too. Oh, and making kefir and yogurt. I am trying!
I think that I could do eggs, dairy and bone broths, at minumum. I will have to continue to read and see my progress to see what I will, if anything change. Well, I won't commit to bone broths quite yet.
Oh, and my new favorite food is hands down COCONUT!! Yum yum and yum. I like the kefir, cheese and curry sauce I made with it so far, but tonight I made an avocado pudding and used coconut oil, among other things and oh.my.god. I haven't felt that good after eating in such a long time.
