Listen to Your Gut

I love food....but it does not love me back.  So I am finding out what I can eat and not eat and still feel good.

I know from experience that chocolate mint is not good for me.  It doesn't matter if it is coffee creamer or candy I will pay for it with either gastric problems or even shortness of breath.

I know that I can safely get away with one cup of coffee in the morning.  Any more no matter what time of day will give me re-flux.  I'm becoming a fan of herbal teas.  They warm me up and don't cause gastric upsets.

So I have been a vegan for 2 weeks now...with a few minor slip ups.  I have lost 8 pounds, my BP is lowest that it has been in years, my ankles aren't swollen, and I have been sleeping better.  Over all I would say it is a win/win solution.

I can't say that I don't miss sweets, bread, cheese, yogurt, ice cream, and eggs but I feel so much better without them in my diet that it doesn't seem to be a problem.

I'm not much on exercise yet.  It is still cold and windy to walk.  I need to start walking again with Leslie Meyer and her walking indoor videos.  I'm hoping as I continue to lose weight my desire to move more will follow.  

I've tried so many eating plans and failed so many times that it is hard to get excited about one more adventure in eating.  Hopefully now that I see improvement in my physical health it will motivate me to stay the course.

Wish me luck....I'm on my weigh!
