Glimpse into week seven of the Autoimmune Protocol

I feel quite happy with my progress on the Autoimmune Protocol. If nothing else, I have decided that I am much better off not sneaking in the foods I know that am intolerant to (who knew?!). I have decided that I am going to continue to avoid grains, gluten, nightshades, sugar, and the foods I am […] Read more…

Glimpse into week six of the Autoimmune Protocol

Week six! This is flying by. I would say my progress this week is similar to last week’s. I have had the added nuisance of regular nausea though, which I am frustrated and confused by! Does anyone else have issues with meat, and different ways of cooking meat? I have had problems with slowed cooked and […] Read more…

Glimpse into week four of the Autoimmune Protocol

I can not believe it, but I have now completed one month of the AIP diet!

Glimpse into week two of the Autoimmune Protocol

I made it through my second week following the AIP diet! Things went a bit better this week. My digestive system seems a bit happier. I have been full of cold all week though, which has been the longest cold I have had in years (I used to get long colds regularly, but since I have been […] Read more…

Glimpse into week one of the AIP protocol

I have been following the Autoimmune Protocol diet now for a week and a half. I can not say that I feel amazingly different. Also, for the past 5 days, I have been full of cold. I have felt bloated, my digestion seems sluggish, and I feel heavy and nauseous. I was hoping that the bloating […] Read more…

Glimpse into beginning the Autoimmune Protocol

I have learnt so much in the past couple of years, which is an opportunity I would have missed had I not become unwell. Having chronic illnesses which have caused me to stop work, and for my entire social, personal and active life to change to learn these lessons is far from ideal, but I am grateful (otherwise, what is the […] Read more…
