Wow, the first 10 days of Elimination Diet (ED) was quite an experience. If you need a little background on this video, you can view the first post about Day 1 of my Elimination Diet and how I prepared for it.
Day 1 started out with some mild headaches and it showed up towards mid-afternoon. The same thing happened on days 2 and 3. But, other than that, I pretty much just went through my days like nothing had changed except that I was cooking more often…lol.
I have tried many delicious recipes from the ED Cook Book and here is a list of them:
- Everything but the Sink Scrambler – my favorite!
- Fresh Fruit Omelet
- Banana Eggs – who knew you can eat eggs in an omelet?
- Let them Eat Pancakes
- Warm Millet Porridge with Fruit
- Apple Muffins – I love these!
- Manhattan Seafood Chowder
I can’t wait to try more recipes during the next 20 days.
Moving forward, I am very excited to announce that I have seen some pretty amazing results. So far, I have lost 3.2 lbs and reduced my waist line by 1 inch. Most importantly, I lost that 1 inch from the most stubborn part of my body – the lower abs. I also like what I see in the mirror and, to me, that is the most important factor regardless of the number on the scale.
Here’s a quick video with the summary of the benefits I experienced:
The other unexpected benefits that I saw was:
- Sleeping better at night including falling asleep much quicker
- Waking up early is not difficult anymore – probably due to better sleep
- No bloating
- No cravings
- No hunger
I have a better relationship with food – now I think that food is meant to heal and sustain my health
I feel a lot better about myself for being so disciplined – no more fighting with my head about cheat meals
This is probably one of the best things that I have ever done for my body and I don’t have any doubt that some of the Elimination Diet rules will stick with me even after the 30 days are over.
