some big changes for the mrs.
changing my diet almost completely. one step at a time of course.
starting with dairy
i think posting it will hold me more accountable to actually try and stick with my new diet.
here is the deal....
it's no secret that we want to have a baby. and we've lost two already. i'm not ready to do that again. so i'm trying to do everything i can to not have this happen again. starting with my diet.
i've always had issues with high acid levels. we first really looked into it a couple of years ago. at that time i wasn't ready to make huge changes. i got on some medicine to solve the problem for a bit. well after some more research i decided it was about time i made some changes.
first off the list...regular ol' cows milk.
this one is nearly IMPOSSIBLE for me considering i drink about 2-3 glasses a day of milk. just plain. i'm telling you i love milk. so almond milk it is.
i started with vanilla. it sounded good. and boy it is. but i think it might be too much for cereal. a little too sweet. i think i might need to go with regular. another negative is that almond milk is so much more expensive. ahh...our tiny budget. i'm hoping i can try and get off the habit of just drinking milk plain and drink water instead.
any advice would be great. next on the list is white flour, cheese and red meats. i'm not sure worried about red meats but white flour...seriously! what have i gotten myself into.
hopefully this will all help get my body back where it's supposed to be. wish me luck!
