In the last two days I’ve started taking a fiber supplement called Konsyl (Original Forumla). Until I can start my juicing, I’m going to keep focusing on cooked vegetables. Tonight I reheated (on the stove) my vegetarian chili. However, this was an “older” batch with chicken. I’m noticing more bloating than usual. I’m assuming that is either coming from the beans and/or chicken. At this point either the Psyllium in Konsyl is not taking enough effect or I have issues with beans / chicken. Based on previous history, it’s the beans. The NSD guidelines also confirm it’s high in starch. So I need to remove those from my diet (especially when I start juicing). I’m hoping that I don’t get a flare-up tomorrow morning because of it. I had just vegetarian chili with white rice last week and did get a flare-up due to it. So it’ll be interesting to see if I tolerate beans more than rice.
I met up with Mary Anne tonight. She has gone through a raw diet but had an adverse reaction to it. Part of the reason, IMO, was all the years she took antibiotics. It’s ruined the lining in her gut and rejected the nutrition in it. As always, she takes a scientific approach to what else is out there. While her points are very valid and helpful, but I plan to stick to the divine strategy brought to me. Time will tell if any adjustments will need to be made. But I must move on & focus on getting the food I need tomorrow & Wednesday so I can start on Thursday.
Lastly, and more importantly, Jamie sent her information over today. I’ll be reviewing the 21 day meal plan, modifying it with NSD & reading the supplemental articles to better understand what foods will I get the most benefit from & why.
