Small change of plans. The starches I’ve been eating (rice, specifically) seem to be causing me heartburn. It’s gotten worse each day – yesterday I needed to swallow baking soda in water 3 times to make it stop. Today I had only a quarter cup of rice with breakfast this morning and I’ve had heartburn off and on all day. I guess this suggests somethings still not quite right with my gut. I’ve been reading Ray Medina’s GERD series, but every time I try to read what might be causing my discomfort I fall asleep. Seriously, I’m only on the first post in the series and I’ve fallen asleep 3 times reading it. haha. Sorry, RM! You’re pretty brilliant but GERD is boring.
So for now anyway, starches are off the menu. I don’t think I need them though. I’ll stick to the other low-fat foods I’ve been eating and be sure to include the carrot salad every day. I’ve been skipping it lately…not so crazy about raw carrots. But they really do the trick and keep the gut healthy. I did go and get a bunch of organic garlic too, today. Between the two things hopefully I can manage to eat starches again sometime.
In other news….I’ve been eating around 20g of fat per day for 4 days now, and the last 2 days my fasting blood sugar has been under 120. Usually it’s around 135.
That’s it for now. Bye bye starches. Again. It’s like a bad relationship. We just keep breaking up over and over again. Alas…those relationships never work out long term.
