Loretta's Countdown to 60

Aging on my terms - Daily musings in 500 words or so

Let’s do this together video – Dairy woes

I decided to introduce dairy back into my diet after two weeks of being on the AIP diet.

It did not go well…

 

I can’t believe the difference between the last two weeks and now. I felt great! My guts were happy, my skin was clear, and my belly flat.

I feel like crap after eating dairy!

I grew up on a farm with fresh whole milk and honestly didn’t know I had a dairy issue. I don’t know if it’s lactose or casein, but either way, it’s out. I will ask to be tested, however.

What I find the most interesting about this experiment is how food makes me feel. I don’t mean physically as much as emotionally.

I felt ‘bad’ on Monday.

Not only was I cranky, but I didn’t feel good about myself. I felt like I had somehow failed. Does that make sense? I also felt like eating crappy food that I know doesn’t serve me.

Perhaps one of the issues with trying to lose weight is how certain foods affect me and change my mood? Maybe you can relate?

  1. Looks like you have confirmation on your suspicion about Dairy. My problem is I’m too undisciplined to want to give up stuff that make me feel like crap. I hope you feel better soon and find that is all that is giving you grief!

      Thank you Mary.

      I was feeling so crappy, I was willing to give up ANYTHING to figure out what it was.

      I do love half and half in my coffee, but for now I’ve given up coffee and sticking with tea.

  2. Loretta,

    At least now you know that dairy isn’t your friend! Good thing you weren’t too far from home!

  3. Good luck! This is something I really need to do. The old saying – You are what you eat – seems to make a lot of sense, huh? Shared your post โ™ฅ
