Maybe this one’s going to work…
~ Said Everyone Who Went On A Diet
I’ve just started a very restricted diet that will last several months.
Not for weight loss, although that may happen. As for most of the eating programs I have ever embarked upon, my reasons are purely medical.
This one goes hand-in-hand with multiple tests, treatment regimes and retesting to see if the treatments I am about to take are working. The restrictive diet is to make sure that my tests will not be influenced in any way by what I might eat or drink.
On the way I hope to reduce my inflammation markets, and curb some of my current auto-immune and other bothers.
I’m trying very hard to find enthusiasm for the small number of proteins, herbs, vegetables and fruits on my list – and for the complete absence of caffeine or even decaf anything, grains, dairy, alcohol, sugars and anything out of a can or bottle.
I’ll be honest. For my ‘last’ dinner I ate a cupcake and two grilled cheese sandwiches and drank a glass of wine. Because it is going to be a long time before I get to do that again, and gee it’s hard to break up with cheese!
Wish me luck, and if I invent any stunningly exciting food combinations I will be sure to post them.
Love, obscure non-brassica vegetables and a whole lot of hope, Nicole xx
