Little update. Since my autoimmune diagnosis, I’ve gone on an anti-inflamation diet and have lost 6 pounds so far. I also feel a lot better. The elimination of wheat and sugar has helped out tremendously. According to my buddy Molly, wheat is what is making America fat. I can’t say I disagree.
I find that it is important every day to review the day before and write down everything I ate, what I did well and what I didn’t do well. In order to have healthy self worth, having self awareness is very important. I log everything I’ve eaten the day before to make sure I’m eating lots of fresh fruits and vegetables and that I’m staying away from dangerous processed foods and sugar. Upon reviewing my day I know if I need to make an amends to anyone because having self worth means you’re accountable for your words and actions. I also see where I can do better the next day as well as congratulate myself for things I have done well.
I encourage everyone in the comments section to write down their daily temperature.
