  1. Phase 2 Week 30

    Am 0.4kg off today. A good result. Had no chocolate this week. Had a bottle of wine last weekend which lasted til Monday - so 3 days of wine. Tues - Thurs no wine. Had wine again yesterday. It was my colleagues funeral and I had a spritzer at the wake. It went as well as these things can - lots of tears, but also some laughter and reminiscing.

  2. Helping someone you love with health is hard!

    Unfortunately, as I have discovered, trying to help someone with health issues can be really hard. I know most would say I need to back off and let hubby make the decisions for himself. However, when his life and yours have become so inextricably linked through work as well as marriage, boy does it become so personal when they won't look after themselves and look to cheat the system as often as they can...

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 ...
