I'm sorry you're not well.


Have you tried taking a probiotic?

Good
Are you exercising at all? If you're able to, I would recommend it. Even just taking a walk will help.

I am so messed up , I have to take little steps, my husband got me some jillian michaels DVD's for beginners and I thought we were moving into a house, i would've had a bigger space to do it now we can't .
I might check into things when spring comes.

I hope you feel better soon. Keep eating a healthy diet and take the probiotics, and I'm sure you'll notice a difference. Also, get plenty of sleep.

Honestly the fruits/veggies/whole grains IMO is the way to go... that combined with cutting all the bad crap out of your diet (added oils, dairy and processed foods).

This.

And I second the recommendation to just get some walks in when you have the stength. Even if they're not for very long. Getting your body moving will help you feel good.

What about cleaning out all the meat and meat products from your house? This way those things wouldn't be there for you to reach for when things get rough. It sounds like you slip back into meat eating as a way of coping when things get rough or you get stressed. Eliminating the accessibility of those things might be really helpful.

I agree with this. Dairy can also clog you up, too.

Whenever I binge out on baddies or just feel ill, I fast. I know its controversial, but it gets me going when I'm down. Depending on what's going on, I'll fruit fast or brown rice fast. When I'm sick I do brown rice, when I've eaten junk I do fruit, and only 2-3 days at a time.

Thanks after several servings of apple slices, some lettuce and juices and some coffee and whole grains and oats I am almost cleaned out, since my husband still eat the animal products, I can't fully purge but, he don't have a problem of getting stuff for me, we are going to have spahgetti with garlic bread tonight for supper might throw in yvews crumbles. I get the 10 dollar four pack and I can space out the meals better with that. I am also going to get some natural vitamin sources to help me continue my path to peaceful eating. I don't crave animal products the only two I still dominate is natural butter ( tried earth balance I got sick on it), Organic yogurt, I get the non dairy ice creams now.
Before we moved out to where we are at now, I lived in the country and there was only limited among of Veg friendly foods, it was not like 5 mins from the house like it is now , so we live near a krogers store, plus down the road from my home at the corner there is a fruit and veggie market, I remember I can get in bulk dried beans there . I should have hubby take me there today and see if I can get some.

I gave up Ice cream because my husband took me to baskin robbins last friday because we tried noodles and company for the first time, their spices are at first was major spicy but not bad but, my mouth was feeling like flames, so I asked him to take me there to get me a cone, the next day I felt very sick I always done that. I used to be allergic to cows milk my mom said when I was a baby , I was put on special milk as a small child or not sure what she meant and I had problems digestin milk products, I was luckly to be able to have some ice cream, cheeses and in that nature but, as I age again I am having issues. I eat my cereal dry in the morning I can't stand wet cereal, cherries, Puffins and other dry cereals in that nature.
Next time we order a pizza I am going to try a cheeseless one with veggies on it, so anyhow , I am slowly recovering.

Just my 2 cents but if you are going to eat pasta go for the whole grain stuff. Ditto on the garlic bread (or avoid it altogether). White flour is my bane. Also I'm not sure how garlic bread would be without the margarine/butter on it... which is also something IMO to avoid like the plague especially if you are trying to lose some weight.

I'm not a big fan of it either... which is why I rarely eat the stuff. But if PVL is looking to lose weight and get healthier I'd avoid the processed grain in normal pasta.
