Elimination Diet, Day 18

Yesterday was my grandparents’ 65th wedding anniversary, so a big congrats to them! We had a party for them today. There was fried chicken, chips, my aunt’s Special K bars, and some veggies. I picked the skin off a chicken breast and ate that, but it was still super against my diet. My elbows got itchy in the evening and I would not be surprised if the two were related.

Over the past 3 days I have realized that I need to restrict nuts. My skin is doing fabulous, but my stomach cannot tolerate the amount I eat. In that, I eat all the nuts and then I have an upset stomach from eating too much stuff that is nutritious, but shouldn’t be a large part of my diet. So I have to work on cutting back from just eating straight nuts or too many nut-based snacks. There’s that “self-control” thing again.
