Rethinking My Eating Plan...

The past month for food has been... well... interesting. We have eaten out a LOT. Sometimes it was cheap fast food burgers. Sometimes it was plate lunches. We ate a good bit of pizza. At one point we went 8 days with only one lunch/supper that was made at home. We lived with stuff in both apartments for quite a while. Monday night we finally got the last few things out of the old apartment and turned in the keys.

So now we can concentrate on unpacking and settling in. And things can get more back to normal. So now I'm wondering... Do I go back to the eating plan I've been following? It's a great time to evaluate things since I haven't been eating on plan for so long. My body did really well with this plan for a while, but now I question whether it's for the best to continue it.

My thoughts are all over the place on this...

I haven't been feeling good after my carb meal at supper. Despite increasing my veggies and decreasing the carbs. I tried switching my carb meal to lunch and that was worse :p

I don't have much energy before lunch. I feel better when I eat something besides fruit at breakfast. I think I really need some protein to start my day.

I know my body does pretty well eating 80-100 grams of protein per day. I've been trying to eat as much protein as possible at lunch, but I find myself craving it more and more at night too.

I haven't lost any weight since my gallbladder healed.

My body has not seemed more inflamed.

I did really well this month - my stomach didn't bother me much more, my gallbladder didn't bother me at all (I had just done a flush too though), and I had more lasting energy.

Regardless of what kind of eating plan I end up following, I will still - do flushes, avoid MSG as much as possible, eat whole foods, eat lots of veggies, etc.

I think I'll be switching things up but not sure exactly what I'll end up with...

Where Am I?

For those of you who don't know me IRL, we are having to move on very short notice :( It's been nine years and two kids since our last move so things are really stressful and chaotic right now! After we're settled in at the new place I'll get back on here. And maybe an update or two in the meantime.

Take care!
