Lately, I am still feeling really tired and unhealthy, even with all of the new vitamins, exercising daily and healthy foods that I have been eating, nothing seems to help. I have been doing some research and realized that with my current symptoms, I am most likely having food allergies to gluten and soy. I feel like this is the reason that I am not losing weight and feel tired & puffy all of the time; so I have decided to start the Whole 30 diet- which is similar to the Paleo Diet. For the next 30 days I will be eliminating all grains, soy, legumes, dairy, sugar and alcohol from my diet.
I have already found some great recipes and some blogs that I can follow so that I can keep myself accountable + motivated. I am going to need all of the motivation that I can muster, especially with eliminating some of my favorite foods like cheese and wine. But honestly, if it helps me feel better + lose some stubborn lbs, then it will be worth it!
Tomorrow, I am going food shopping to stock up on gluten-free and whole foods, at this point, I barely have anything to eat in my pantry! I am very excited to start this journey and will hopefully start to feel better within the first week. I will come back here weekly to update my progress and any changes that I see.
Wish me luck!!
