I've been massively in denial about my auto immune disorders the last month or so. I've been thinking that I can manage them 'my way' by eating mostly clean and winging it, thinking I'm different from everyone else with AIs and therefore able to treat it differently.
But I had a flare up two days ago (which has somehow gone down again) but it's acted as a reminder that I need to manage this by the book. My way doesn't work. It's not worked for 2 years. And how can we expect things to change, unless we create change.
So following the Auto Immune Protocol to a T, zero deviations, from now on. Lunch today was avo, salad greens, canned mackerel and a veggie mash I made (carrot, zucchini, broccolini and garlic).
The AIP Diet is enormously restrictive and its gonna be tough, but I need to put my health first. Which means no more brunch in cute cafes, my favourite thing to do. It also means a properly functioning body. Hard choice to make, right? 🤔
