Well having spent a good portion of my life abstaining from eating meat, exercising and doing a range of the things that I understood to be beneficial not just to me, but to the planet and the other weird and wonderful things that I get to share this world with. For the most part, I confess this does make me feel a little better about being me, but there really are some things that can cause life to feel less easy.
Sara and I recently decided that we would try and clear up a couple of persistent health issues, nothing life threatening, but a couple of skin issues that have been lingering for longer than they should in a healthy environment. Our first trial is that we are trying a massive reduction in sugars in the forms of refined, and fruit sources. It is a variation on a Anti- Candida diet, which proclaims the wisdom of health in the concept that many things inside the body are fuelled by sugars and in excess the sugars can create mega monsters that rampage in our internal parts creating destruction and mayhem in their path, or something like that anyhow!
Assuming that the skin issues are based on this evil sugar overload, we are hoping to see improvements within three weeks. The only problem with that is that we have to maintain this for three weeks! I don’t know how many of you regular do these kinds of limited diets, but this one will be a challenge, as we are also having no refined fats, except coconut fat, as this is supposed to offer some benefits in clearing candida, little wheat and grains, no animal products, and as much raw as possible, all of which will be organic! I know, not easy huh! 🙂
I have pursued some strange limited diet trends in my die, not from a specific basis of health to clear a condition, even if I do have to avoid nuts and some seeds if I want to avoid mouth ulcers, so this feels a different challenge, something more superficial in a sense, but one in which I am happy to continue with as I enjoy testing myself, my will power and discover how different things make me feel.
So far, my diet has fallen on a huge dependency on Kallo Salted Ricecakes. These provide the much required convenience necessary during my day of work in the office. Dinner is usually a more interesting salad affair. However, a couple of evenings ago, we did a raw broccoli sauce for the salad, and we did A LOT of salad. The resulting mass was not particular tasty, and not being one to waste have been trying to work my way through it. It has been interesting, and I am grateful that this will be done tonight, and I can start on something else, other than ricecakes!! 🙂
Please let me know if you’ve ever tried a really restrictive diet, and what kept you on the path of success?
