OK, so today would mark the end of the Endo madness for this month. So as I reflect on this past week, I have to wonder, did the Endo diet help? Actually, it did.
It was extremely hard to stick to the diet. I messed up a few times. Plus, I had just gone grocery shopping right before I started the diet so I couldn’t let the food go to waste. But even with the mess ups, I do have to say that I felt better.
I am not really sure if it helped with the pain because I pulled a muscle in my lower back so I was in an extreme amount of pain, regardless. But I didn’t get any of my Endo migraines. I didn’t throw up at all. I had plenty of energy–my body was just unable to keep up with me because of my back.
I do have to say that I was very happy when the Endo bloat went away (as well as the Endo fog brain). So now I am just going to try to do my best to stick with the diet, especially during a particular two weeks out of the month. Next month I will be able to know for sure if it is working (as long as I don’t pull any more muscles).
And if anyone is wondering, here is what my daily meals have looked like (including my few mess-ups):
- Green Tea

- Vitamuffin Vitatop (available at Ralph’s, Vons & Target in the frozen foods section)

- Healthful 10 Grain Bread (2 slices–I wasn’t going to let $5 bread go to waste)

- Welch’s Sugar Free Grape Jelly
- Strawberries & Fat-Free Cool Whip
- Fiberone Bar
