  1. Blood Sugar Monitor

    After a couple of stressful weeks at work and falling off the waggon (AGAIN!) I am more determined than ever to get back to it. Having said that, I'm easing into it as you will see from my menu choices.

    Yesterday I treated myself to a blood glucose monitor as I've never had any sort of test at the Drs. I'm glad to say that I haven't had to visit a doctor for more years than I can remember. I was slightly worried that, with all my choc, buscuits and cake as well as some weight gain ...

  2. Day 8 Again

    I am so pleased that I keep a blog as it has just helped remind me how I feel at this stage. Looking back to 2016's Day 8 I was dreaming about food and battling cravings and that's exactly what's happening now. Before I looked at the old blog entries I though that I would be feeling a bit better by now so it's reassuring to know that this is normal for me.

    My cravings would like nothing more than for me to buy a bag of double choc cookies from Sainsbury's but I'm glad to say that ...

  3. Allergies calming down

    As expected I seem to be almost allergy free this evening, 48 hours after eating the last bit of gluten/oats.

    Today I tried to get more Vit A into my diet although it's not easy to eat the retinol vit A foods. I bought some snack prawns from M&S but I just hate the texture - it's like eating some kind of cold worm. I think I'll have to try them cooked in something. Alternatively I'll just stick to the eggs in broth. My body should be turning the carotenoids into retinol but I'd ...

  4. Will Vitamin A Be My Saviour?

    After another few days of testing I can confirm that it is the gluten that is setting off my allergies. I thought that it might have been a cold as it took 48 hours for the gluten to get out of my system but when it did I became allergy free (no more sneezing and runny nose).

    Unfortunately I then had a craving for Muesli (Dorset Cereals Simply Delicious Muesli to be exact). I had three bowls on the first day and when I woke up the next day I felt a little bit snuffly but nothing ...

  5. Continuing the experiment

    I thought I would record my new allergy discovery as I like to have something to look back on in future.

    I've been suffering from allergy symptoms for about 6 days now and I'm slowly working out what it is. It started with a dry and slightly sore throat and developed into a runny nose and sneezing. I know this sounds like a cold but there are a couple of reasons why I think it's related to allergies or more correctly intolerances. I know that I'm intolerant to milk proteins as ...
