Hi Spookyhurst, I can always count on you! Well, I'm not injesting anything illegal now. I've made that part very simple. To tell the truth, I have never approached the diet in stages since I don't have typical symptoms. maybe i should. Where do I find info about the stages? I do have the book but I guess didn't really notice that stages were listed.
I hope I haven't come off as one of those people who complains about something not working but hasn't been doing it right. i really do trust the logic and evidence behind the diet. just wonder if there is someting left in my diet that is keeping me from healing. You know, something not typical.
I even cut out tap water two weeks ago! I'm willing to try anything.
spooky, if peanut butter is the culprit then I am KILLING myself! You wouldn't believe how much pb I eat. But I assumed it was a safe, high energy snack. Also, I have a feeling my marathoning is holding me back. I know it causes inflammation. In fact, that showed up in my last blood test a day after a marathon. And I've run 2 in the last month and have two more in the next 4 weeks! But I was kind of looking for a reason to quit. It's kind of hard to quit doing marathons when you're in shape for them and they keep coming up! I love running a lot but realize moderation is probably the key.
OK, just ate my last peanut butter for awhile!
I'm gonna try the AB for sure. Hope it's just as good smothered on some apple, carrots, banana, etc etc! But I'll keep moderation in mind, also.
Sure stinks when you think you're living all healthy and find out your not! Live and learn.
