Good for you...

Do you know what is uber-frustrating? Trying to rethink the way you eat because you have always been told that certain foods are "good for you" and you should eat a lot of those foods.

I get such incredulous looks when I try to explain that many "healthy" foods are actually horrible for me. It's really hard for people to understand that fruit is one of the absolute worst things I can eat. Next up is stuff with a sweetener that is anything other than plain sugar and certain vegetables. And then we go to the grains.

If I had to be a vegan, I would starve to death.

For most of the past six years, I've been trying to deal with the constant upset stomach by having things like bread or applesauce. The last thing I want to eat when I feel that way is spinach, for instance. But it's those foods that have been helping me to feel better.

It's funny that now that I'm finding out what's been causing all this shrek, if i can force myself to eat things like spinach and some chicken or steak, my stomach will feel better. I don't enjoy eating it at first, but it gets better quickly. The thing I do have to be concerned about is feeling full. Ironically, if I feel that way, it's usually a sign that I've eaten something that doesn't agree with me and that's my body's way of letting me know. Unfortunately, it's also usually after-the-fact, so I will end up being sick later.

I'm starting to feel like everything I've been told about 'healthy eating' was a big lie. Except the cake. That's still not a good idea.
