My poor tummy has been in overactive mode lately. It’s been upset almost non-stop. I sat down yesterday and realized that Ben and I have been eating REALLY bad. Like, not trying to eat healthy at all since about the time Cassidy left. heh The thing is, my tummy was starting to show symptoms of this before that. I’d say for about the last three to four months it’s just gotten progressively worse.
Anytime I eat, within about 30 minutes my stomach starts to cramp up. It’s not a nausea thing. It’s more like a food poisoning feeling. Like my body is rejecting what I’ve eaten and is having to REALLY try to process the food. In the last week or so I’ve noticed it’s much worse if I eat a lot of protein. Meat or dairy in general don’t react well in me but it’s to the point now that I’m sick pretty much every night. 🙁
Yesterday Ben got us some subs from Quizno’s. That even upset my stomach. 🙁 Then last night for dinner I had a green salad with a very small grilled chicken breast and I managed to make it through without much pain. Starting today I’m going to try and completely cut out dairy and only have some meat at dinner. I’m thinking I’ll just grill up some chicken and veggies… grilled zucchini… Mmmmmmm. *drools*
Anyway, I KNOW that cutting out all diary is going to help but I’m scared about the fact that I might not be handling meat well. I love meat. I love a big, juicy, rare, dripping red, just cooked enough to be warm steak… Plus protein is GOOD for you and if I’m not getting it from meat then I need to find a way to get it into my body without upsetting it. It might come down to shakes. 🙁 But I’m prepared to do whatever it takes to get rid of this daily nusance. It might just be as simple as keeping my meat intake limited to chicken and fish since they are both easier on the digestive system.
EDIT – I’ve decided to try and either grill or bake a whole chicken tonight. I’ve found a recipe that sounds good and pretty easy to do. If you have any suggestiong though, please let me know!! 🙂
