Dietary Changes Coming Up.
I took a natural water pill today and I’ll be taking another later on.
When my weight is in the range that it is I’m more susceptible to edema than when I’m 30 lbs lighter.
The fact that I’m going through PMS plays a factor.
I have actively been working to lose more weight.
My diet also plays a factor.
No more salted sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds. They taste good but it’s way too much sodium for me.
I love the salted ones best but they have to go. I just gave the rest of my pumpkin seeds to my oldest daughter.
I’ll also be further working my way towards a no dairy lifestyle.
I’ve already given up dairy yogurt, milk, pudding, custard, and ice cream, but I do eat cheese and butter.
I’m reducing my cheese intake greatly as opposed instead to eating it daily as I normally do.
I’ll be omitting the cheese from my eggs and having something else instead of grilled cheese or pizza.
Time to get reacquainted with some vegan recipes!
Sodium and dairy are two of my biggest triggers, especially if I’m eating them daily.
Dietary changes aren’t always easy but sometimes they are necessary.
I was on pharmaceutical water pills for about a decade until I took myself off of that, all the heart, blood pressure, and all of my other medications except for albuterol as needed last year.
I no longer needed the water pills daily and much rather use something natural when the situation arises.
I ate a vegan diet and employed natural health methods to improve my health.
When something works it’s best to stick with it.
While I can’t control everything I can control my diet.
It comes down to deciding whether I want a slimmer face and ankle or gooey cheese and salty seeds.
Here’s to making better choices.
