Someone told me yesterday to have a nice Easter and I said that I kept forgetting it was Easter.
She said well you have been banging on about Lent for weeks now. Hahahaha.
I did not really know what Lent was, I understood about the fasting and the science for doing it at this time, but I was only using it as a time frame. It's good to have a time frame when you have a concise plan in mind.
So what did I learn? I relieved all of my symptoms. Bloating gone, aches and pains mainly gone, not 100% but much better. Significant weight loss and much higher energy. I am enjoying the weight loss although that is not why I did it. Possibly I would never have stuck to it if that had been my only driver. My driver is and was dis ease prevention. I was in a precarious, post menopausal place.
Here are the conflicts.
Dont eat meat. Which would take you to bean and pulses.
Dont eat foods high in sulphur, which most beans and pulses are.
Dont eat the nighshade family. Thats all tomatoes, peppers, aubergines and chillies out.
Dont eat fish, they are contaminated.
Eat only organic. Not always possible here or in a lot of places.
Eat right for your types, that cuts out all wheat and dairy for me.
Alkalise your diet that takes out all animal products too and puts you back to veg.
Avoid raw cruciferous veg if you have thyroid issues, thats broccoli, sprouts and cauliflower.
Dont eat too much fruit because of the sugar.
Dont eat dried fruit thats been treated in chemicals.
Dont eat carrots they are high in sugar.
Eat turmeric, dont eat turmeric.
Coconut oil is the miracle cure, never eat coconut oil.
So you can see, what is a normal person to do with all of that?
Nutrition is not an exact science. We have different needs at different times and there are other critical factors that must be taken into account.
But your body knows.
All the intelligence is in there.
You can use the emotion codes, kinesiololgy or take food intolerance test.
My friend Lorna https://www.facebook.com/THEFOODCLINIC?fref=ts will be in Argyll on the 17,18,19th April. Fast, simple way to find out.
As far as food goes I have 1 rule.
Eat the food that Mother Nature provided without any alterations by man.
That's it. After that it is all about balance.
Eat what is grown around you whenever possible.
Eat raw as much as possible, organic preferably.
Eat what is in season.
Chew mindfully and with appreciation and love as in this state the digestive system works best.
There are many ways to heal. Make a decision based on which approach "feels" right to you. Same with weight loss, choose a path you like the look of.
With the decision made, you are on your way. Keep your eye on your goal.
