Fighting Inflammation – Day 8 Results!

So I’m excited to say I have committed myself to removing ALL High Inflammation Foods in the past week and have made it through!!!  Haha let’s just be honest, it wasn’t easy BUT it wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be either. I am DOWN 5 lbs in 8 days!!!! I mean WOW! I feel amazing!! I can feel the inflammation leaving my body…I feel lighter, less bloated, no joint pain and just over all brain clarity that was definitely fogged up before. I am on a 14 day test run to really experiment what the best plan is for my GUT HEALTH and what I’m finding is I probably have YEARS of inflammation in my body.  It’s going to take time for it to break down. But in one week my digestion is BETTER that it has been in I can’t remember the last time AND I’m eating foods that would normally TRIGGER IBS episodes…like red meat and nuts.  So 5 lbs is great but the education alone and truly understanding what has been going on w/ my body all these years is a GIFT in itself.  I’m following a 14 day high fat, low carb plan. The high fat is all healthy fats like avocado, coconut oil, nuts and even grass fed beef.  The high fat is keeping me full and clearing my brain fog.  The low carb is NO STARCHES – I’m only consuming carbs from veggies, nuts, all foods except starches.  I will keep you posted on recipes, what my meals look like and what my 14 day results bring. Until then stay tuned and be healthy 🙂
