I am now finishing my third week of being 80/10/10. This has already been a rough journey. But I am always up for a challenge.
I am very grateful to have come by this though and I have faith it will work out in the end.
As far as complications go, I certainly have a list...haha
Let's begin with all the infections that came about the second week. I had a severe infection in my gums that spread to my throat. Very painful. I hate antibiotics, I know they are awful for anyone and create problems for your digestive system and your immune system but the infection got so bad I had to take them! Even I, who is completely convicted in hating the medical industry for everything that they have become had to take medicine.
Quite humbling I might add.
Moving on to the constant nausea I get every time I eat fruit. Any fruit. Any combination. Mono or not. Doesn't matter. It is only getting worse and I have asked around and no one seems to know what it could be from. Someone on here suggested that it might be fructose malabsorption but I don't have all the systems. But I won't rule it out completely. If that were so, it would be very inconvenient for my life style.
This is really upsetting me actually. Every time I eat even just two bananas I get this very tight nauseating chest pain that is extremely uncomfortable. I feel like I might throw up. Has anyone else experienced this from fruit? It is so bazaar!
Other than that I am very happy about how my co workers are responding to me now and they are getting very excited about eating healthy in their own lives too. One of them even made a vegan dish and brought it to work for everyone! I am so proud of them! :P
