I try so hard to live by my paleo lifestyle. It helped me to lose 20 pounds and feel better. It did not allow me to walk or ‘cure’ my MS. [MS CANNOT be cured, but it can be controlled for some] What the paleo lifestyle did was help my fatigue, my dizziness, my IBS/colon issues, and an array of other little issues. As stated before, it even helped me to lose weight with minimal exercise.
So, what is my confession you ask? [I know u r asking] I have fallen off the wagon for a bit as of late. For the last 3 nights we have McD’s. The most evil food in the world. I am so mad at myself for eating it and for allowing my kids to eat that crap!! The breads alone will make you sick.
I know better, which is why I am so pissed off at me. I know I feel better when I eat the right way. So WTF is my problem?? I eat this crap and then hate myself for it. HELLO…wake up Tracy!
I quit smoking 3.5 years ago.
That was [so far] the hardest thing I have ever given up. Do i feel better for it, YES. Do I miss it every day…YES. But, I do not pick one up and start again. So, why can’t I quit the shitty foods?! And yes, they are shitty for EVERYONE!! Why do we think The USA is the ‘fattest’ Country. We are made to believe that it is ok to eat fast food. They have nutrition guides and use better oils!! Ya, and I fell off the turnip truck yesterday!!
Ok, ok I’ll get off my soapbox… for now! We will be discussing this at a later date in my ‘Living with MS’ blog series anyways. Bet ya cannot wait!!
Anywho, I needed to come clean and confess my food splurge!! Even though it is all I ate on those days, it is still the worst things I could have put in my body. I will be paying for it for the next few days. It is already starting. Time to water up!
Blessings and Hope…
ps…if you need to find me, I’ll be in my bathroom!

I’m going to look into this diet you suggest especially if it helps with IBS as my daughter in law has that and it’s really bad for her.
I have come to believe that McD’s burgers and fries gave me Colon Cancer. I went there every day for a double cheeseburger and fries for my lunch for about three years. The grease in the food alone is enough for kill you. When I was diagnosed the doctors told me I probably had had cancer for three years. Huh? Yeah. The only thing I do get at McD’s now is a Diet Coke. Now if I could just cut those out I’ll be set!
The first week of no bread and no soda, my ibs issues got better! For me, it was the right thing!
McD’s and all of them should be outlawed!
Tracy don’t beat yourself up, you screwed up…but don’t we all? I know I do…and I also feel tremendous guilt when I feed crap to my kids…and to myself. My body no longer tolerates fast food garbage like it used to. Now when we go out to eat I insist on a sit down restaurant…but even those have bad stuff…let’s face it, if it tastes good it probably isn’t good for us. I’m a major foodie…just love to eat….and I fall off the self imposed food wagon way too many times…I’m sure you will be back on track soon enough, and you will probably fall of your food wagon again….we are only human…damn it….loves ya!
Sad as I looove food too!! go figure! lol
