I decided to introduce dairy back into my diet after two weeks of being on the AIP diet.
It did not go well…
I can’t believe the difference between the last two weeks and now. I felt great! My guts were happy, my skin was clear, and my belly flat.
I feel like crap after eating dairy!
I grew up on a farm with fresh whole milk and honestly didn’t know I had a dairy issue. I don’t know if it’s lactose or casein, but either way, it’s out. I will ask to be tested, however.
What I find the most interesting about this experiment is how food makes me feel. I don’t mean physically as much as emotionally.
I felt ‘bad’ on Monday.
Not only was I cranky, but I didn’t feel good about myself. I felt like I had somehow failed. Does that make sense? I also felt like eating crappy food that I know doesn’t serve me.
Perhaps one of the issues with trying to lose weight is how certain foods affect me and change my mood? Maybe you can relate?
