Day 125

Wednesday 4th May 2016

It was a very busy day today. I was busy doing lots of things and I didn’t seem to get tired once. 4 months ago I wouldn’t have been able to cope and flaked out halfway through the day. 

I saw Jenny the nutritionist today again. My results from my blood test had come in but only that morning. So it was a quick overview instead.

I found the results very interesting. I had improved in a lot of things. I have reduced the risk of getting diabetes, osteoporosis & gout considerably. My fatty acids and lipids in the blood are healthier. 

I have an under active thyroid. For years they haven’t functioned properly, but now they have been awakened. I am now producing T3 &T4  natural cortisol (stress hormone) I hope that means I will be less stressed and not more. It also means that I have more energy. 

My favourite improvement though is the fact that my Uric acid levels in my blood are back in balance. Which means I can finally eat beef.

However there was an issue with my white blood cells. I have had a bad stomach since coming back from holiday. I thought maybe it was because I wasn’t eating as healthily now , even though I am still being healthy. Apparently it looks like I got an infection on holiday and my white blood cells have been exhausted and now they don’t function properly. 

There is a solution though and that is for me to keep taking my apple cider vinegar tablets, probiotics (supplements) and prebiotics that means more of those disgusting veggie smoothies every day.

Day 22

Friday 22nd January 2016

Had to have a blood test today for the nutritionist its called a metabolic rate test. I went in the morning because I couldn’t eat before I had it.

I did however go for a walk first. Considering I didn’t eat before I went, I did alright. The hill is getting easier although I was a bit shaky.

I got very tired today.

Day 21

Thursday 21st January 2016

Weight went up again, not really worried as it is going up and down all the time.

Went for a walk again. Matt has been very helpful, I have dieted many times before and always did well but one day I just stopped losing weight. I then got diagnosed with an under active thyroid and discovered that I over produce oestrogen which both make you put on weight.

I then went through 6 months of depression where I piled weight back on. I tried for years after that to lose weight, but I was fighting against so many medical conditions that it was impossible.

This time Matt found a nutritionist and we made an appointment. Today was our first visit.

She was very helpful and said that all these medical conditions can be reversed by a very strict diet. I needed a blood test to see what was really going on inside.

I will be starting my diet with her next week
