The fast went well yesterday morning, but all it took was an hour later before I was suffering from IBS once again. I believe that I may breakdown soon and take advantage of whatever the best drug is on the market to help correct my gut bacteria. For now I will continue to try to eat mostly fresh vegetables and continue to try to avoid dairy. For lunch I ate a stuffed pepper that contained rice. I should have learned from the last time that rice makes my blood sugar rise, but the minimalist in my didn’t want to throw it out. I also ate cottage cheese with fresh cantaloupe. I am sure that this dairy product was the source of the Irritable Bowel problems. Dinner last night was taco’s and although I was eating grass fed beef and fresh veggies, I know that the taco shells added to the rise in blood sugar and the sour cream didn’t help.
I searched the web for ways of correcting IBS through diet and lifestyle changes and found a few but I want to conduct further research to set up a series of experiments with certain foods.
Today I am going to try to stick with a large salad and a fresh peach and yogurt for lunch and see what happens. I will be back on the treadmill this morning and will limit my time to just 30 minutes or 2 miles, which ever comes first.
