The housework can wait. I am going to do some spring cleaning of my diet. I think I would feel better -- like lower blood pressure -- if I lost about ten pounds.
I think I eat a fairly health conscious diet. I don't generally deprive myself, but I stay aware of salt and sugar and fried food. My down fall is bread and pasta. I suspect my stomach doesn't play well with dairy, but I may have convinced myself of that without real proof.
Anyway, in spite of trying to eat right I have been suffering from GERD lately. I blame it on Trump, of course. Well, it did start on election day, 2016.
I've tried willy nilly to eliminate things and see if that has any effect, but not wanting to find out I should eliminate cheese or gluten. That makes me quite sad. I give in to the temptation to believe what I want to believe. I think I have things under control and then I spend a night feeling as though I swallowed battery acid. That is not fun.
So I am going to do an elimination diet with the help of a nutritionist. First step is to cleanse the liver. So lemon water, lots of leafy greens, beets and other colorful vegetables, fruits (that'll be apples and berries for me, and lots more water. After a week, we will start the slow process of adding back and testing reactions.
I figure I will either be really, really crabby or I will feel a lot better.
