Blueberry’s Diary -14-

Week 10-11th. No allergy test. We decided to go “much more deeper” in this – into my guts actually.

My nutritionist’s opinion is (considering all the random symptoms keep coming back time to time) that my problem related to my guts – maybe i have a parasite. After 3 month dieting, eliminating sugar, dairy and gluten … then adding back slowly… looks like i have no intolerance. At least nothing crazy.

I got much more better ( and i lost that 5kilos – possible that extra 5% body fat was just covering my body like a nice warm scarf in winter) – still i would love to know what s behind my crazy random bloated belly (from one minute to the other) and superheavy feeling in my stomach. I got this far so i wont stop here. I will going to do a funny test instead of the allergy one.

Stool test. Have you heard of it? Have you ever done it? :) Well – its my turn. I will do probably the century’s stool test. At least seeing on its price. It is sooo expensive that i expect the result showing all my billions of little bacterias and yeasts and parasites (if i have any) with their exact home address in my gut system. Appearantly we will see everything whats happening in there and we can read out a tonns of imformations – if any of the bacterias doesnt work properly causing problems – like an inflammation. After my nutritionist will de-code the results we can find the ‘leak on the gut’ and be able to aim our support to the exact area. Hm. Cant wait.

I mean i have to wait 2 weeks with the test – because i was using probiotics and digestive enzymes to help my digestion – these have to be gone by the time of the test – so it wont show any fake results. But after that – im very very keen on to see whats the deal – can my body actually working thru all the food i eat – can i absorb all the micro and macro stuff i consume, can i break down the fats and proteins in the right level? etc.

I am almost at the end of the 3 months ‘dieting’. I re-entered food which i eliminated at the beggining. I can eat cheese (i am 100% in sheeps and goats) and also i tried pasta made with normal flour (i made it actually) containing gluten. Also had rye bread with a mackerel dish… and had no crazy symptoms were showing off at the end of the day. So i guess i can claim out – have no serious intolerance.

footnote: still no regret for this whole diet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i m not planning to eat tonns of dairy or gluten in the future – also keep the white sugar off from my diet – its just crazy what it does with us.

I know my body more – i know a handful of things i digest a bit harder than other things – like sweetcorn, almond or olives – but we all have our ‘problematic’ ingredients i assume. My symptoms keep appearing randomly so i dont think it has anything to do with any food. Maybe a certain groups of family – maybe i have problem to digest fats – maybe my ‘fatty bacterias’ running low. Maybe. Maybe perhaps. We will see after the test. Fingers cross.

Till then i keep cooking. Cooking and foraging. Unfortunately i got back to the bad habit of ‘snacking’ because i find no time for a 3rd meal during my day – and this makes me hungry and pushing me to ‘nibble’. Nothing unhealthy – just like fudge with my afternoon coffee or cheese with seeded crackers. Trying to work on this 3 meals per day. Promise.

And in the meantime… i was just enjoying my 35th birthday almost for a whole week. With all the family and friends i was able to gather around me.
