For the last three months, from the “offer” on our house to our delayed move, us Furlong oldies have been eating junk.
Last Saturday, it all came to a head for me. We went on an outing with grandchildren that involved standing around. For several weeks I have found just standing around, excruciating. I have had to sit or walk. Standing around, meant pain in my hips and lower back which disappeared as soon as I strode out, or sat.
In me, pain is inflammation. Inflammation is caused by diet.
Also, my blood-sugar gets uncontrolled and I don’t like the idea that it’s nibbling away at my internals and causing more trouble for my future.
So I’m back on my pain-diet.
What is that?
Well, over the years, I have discovered MY way. MY way zaps the pain and the blood-sugar.
1 Dont eat as soon as rising. Breakfast about 10am. (Well, I’m retired so I can do that.) Breakfast – small – two eggs and a piece of fruit. Or egg and bacon. Coffee with double cream.
2 Dinner at lunchtime. Or the biggest meal of the day here. Lots of protein, no carbs – i.e. potato, rice, pasta etc. Maybe some vegetables like cabbage or brocoli. Or Avocado. And fat – butter, butter, butter and double cream. Sometimes black chocolate.
3 Walk a mile
4 Supper before but not after six o’clock at night, that consists of Bone broth or rich double cream of celery soup, or Chicken bone broth.
Works like a charm.
No pain. Mind clear. Energy returns. And blood-sugar normalises. Optimism returns.
This is MY high-fat-low-carb-fasting food regime that makes me feel like a new person!
