The who and why of it all

Trying different ways to optimise life health and happiness by eating real food and bulding strength. I used to have migraines every fortnight that would put me out for days. I ate a lot of sugar in it's classic sweet form and in its filling bread/pasta form. I was always tired and weak but never overweight- so I never questioned my diet. Until someone else did. Now I barely ever get migraines, I am strong and getting stronger. I am more active than I have ever been.

Day -2 19th April

Day  -2: Non Paleo: Eating any ghosts I see!


Breakfast: Hot cross bun and a cup of tea (milk two sugars)

Lunch: Ate out with a friend, focaccia with chicken, avocado, sun dried tomatoes, red onion, cheese, chips and sour cream. Chocolate milkshake and a hazelnut latte.

Snack: Chocolate egg

Dinner: An ice pack for my headache and a blanket for my tummy ache :-( no food.

Drinks: 1 glass of full cream milk in the morning. 2 little glasses of water with lunch (200ml?) and two medium glasses of water in the afternoon (500 ml). 1 glass of water before bed (200 ml). 
Therefore, just under a litre of water.

Felt very tired, laid on sofa when we got home. Talked with John. No house work achieved. Went to bed at 10.30.
Skin: Dark shadows, broke out around my mouth
Headache: Yes
Sinus: Blocked and nose bleeds
Tummy: Ache and bloated feeling


  1. you scared me a little with the nose bleeds :-(

  2. also, that is like the anti paleo diet.

  3. Yes... it seems worse written down some how. I wouldn't have thought twice about eating that a week ago!
