The Cheese Stands Alone
Remember how I was telling you that in Norway there's a plus and minus sign on the toilet flusher? Plus was for um, more bulky things to flush, and the minus sign was just for pee?
Let's just say if I had a plus/minus sign on our toilet here, I wouldn't have had to use the plus sign since Friday.
Here's the culprit: I don't eat cheese on a regular basis. But since the diabetes diagnosis, I've been faithfully following the diet to the T (well except that trail mix binge over the weekend) and that includes eating protein every time I eat something, and eating every three hours regardless of whether I'm hungry.
My body is rebelling. I'm feeling crappy -- literally. Cheese always always always acts like cement in my digestive system. I know this, but have been trying to follow the diet.
So people, I'm cutting out the cheese. I may do one serving every other day. As for other protein sources, I'm going to get my lunch at 11, make a sandwich, eat half at 11 and eat half in the afternoon. I'm going to eat when I'm hungry, which is generally every 3-4 hours instead of every 2-3 as this "diet" -- and you know I use the term loosely because it seems so subjective and whatever the latest dietician's interpretation is -- calls for.
My instincts are dead-on -- always have been.
