This update is going to be a bit different. Because I had to stop the Autoimmune Protocol Diet unfortunately. My bowels this week pretty much had it. With this diet I was eating a lot of veggies and my colitis is currently not happy with that.
So Thursday I ended up having to take a sick day over this. I felt like my colon was in a vice grip and I had been having bowel issues for a couple of days so I just decided to stay home. I’m tired of making myself go to work when I don’t feel well. I also hadn’t been sleeping well due to joint pain. And Thursday was the day I decided I needed to get off of the AIP diet.
Now the plan is to try and redo the AIP diet in a couple of weeks. I feel like I need to do some soul searching and revisit the whole thing. It may mean introducing some OTC fiber tablets to my diet to help keep things regular. Or even slower diet changes.
But I felt that quitting the diet was the best option for me at this time. Going into a flare is not worth it. And I really feel that I was heading in that direction. My bowels were really starting to get torn up. In a way going back to my regular diet is going to be a test to see how that compares to what I was doing.
Until next time!
