Elimination: Week 6

Today wraps up the egg elimination week. It was easy to do this one. I do love eggs, but I’ve already eliminated everything that eggs are used in, so I only had to give up having eggs for breakfast. Breakfast has typically been a banana or some other fruit. I occasionally have bacon with it.

I weighed 246.6 pounds this morning, so I’m down almost a pound from last week. It might have been more, but after I found some almond flour tortillas, I ate a bunch of tacos earlier in the week. Worth it.

This week, I decided to reward myself with a tea kettle. I have some elderberry tea that is supposed to boost your immune system. I also have some willow bark tea that I’m going to use for a fever reducer/pain reliever, since I’m allergic to NSAIDs and Ibuprofen has corn starch in it. I’ve actually been eyeing this tea kettle for years but couldn’t justify the purchase before now.

Tomorrow begins the elimination of dairy products: milk, cheese, yogurt, etc. This will be rough. I’m not particularly fond of milk, but I do enjoy cheese. Yogurt has also been an easy way to get probiotics to improve my gut health. I can do this. It’s crazy to think how far I’ve come. I’m finishing week 6 of an 8 week elimination diet. Reintroduction will begin soon and I can start enjoying some of my favorite foods again. More importantly, I can narrow down which foods are my triggers.
