Today is Day 1 of my elimination diet.

Observation #1: No coffee first thing (not even decaf) sucks.

Observation #2: I do not like fish or meat and veggies for my breakfast.

I don't mind going low-starch at times, but come on! Breakfast is my favourite meal of the day, and how can it be any fun at all if it consists of a pear and water? Hmmph.

Yesterday I attempted to list all the foods I eat regularly, plus as many as I could think of that I have occasionally. I thought it was a good idea, since I have to add my usual foods back into my meals gradually - and if I don't have a list to work from, it might be tricky to keep track. Do you have any idea how hard it is to list all the foods you eat?

I must have become a bit obsessed about it, because as I was lying in bed last night, drifting off to sleep, I suddenly thought: PINEAPPLE! And CANTALOUPE! And what about HAZELNUTS? Then I lay there doing a mental inventory of the pantry and fridge. Aargh!

I may need some serious distraction this weekend. Perhaps a mega-shopping trip is in order.

Sounds like fun - NOT!

I hope you get some decent results out of it all, otherwise it's going to suck big time.

You can eat fruit (pears/peaches) at breakfast if you are doing Bob McFerrans elimination diet. That's what I did.

Days 1-4 do kind of suck but stick with it chick. Also, you might get a flare up of your achey bits. I did. Don't be despondent if that happens. It's only 6 days. Just keep yourself entertained and don't try to actually achieve anything. Just cruise. The world will be ok without you for 6 days.

Yep, I had a pear for brekky. It wasn't as satisfying as porridge.

I have a nasty headache, which set in at around 10:00am. I'm off for a hot shower and then to loll around in my pjs for the rest of the night. I may not be fit for human company tomorrow if this keeps up.

Very interesting. Please enlighten us with a blow by blow account of the experience. I'm fascinated.
