Getting me back on track…

In the spring of 2017 my health was really not good and I met my family doctor who told me that I may have symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis. It was mid-June 2017. I was in, I believe, in a relapse since October 2016.

As soon as I was able to search the Internet for symptoms, I saw that I was a 9/10 … I cried two days … Then I went into search mode. I found and started the Wahls Protocol in July 2017. My weight was 155 lbs / 70 kg I measure 5’1 ” / 1.52m.

I did levels 1 and 2 of the Wahls Protocol and my symptoms easily went down by half in a few weeks! I had always rushed with diets and with my weight.  I was losing weight! At the end of August I remember spending a week losing a pound a day. I admit that I was tripping solid!

I ate 9 cups of fruit and vegetables a day, two meals with animal protein (fish, beef, chicken, pork). With olive oil, coconut butter, etc … At the end of August 2018 I had stomach aches … To realize that I had a SIBO following a test in October 2018.

I looked for a naturopath to help me and I found him in September 2019. I started and it was going very well. I decided to quit smoking in February 2020 and then the pandemic with containment made maximum stress … What do we do when we stress? We eat comforting things, what could be better than sugar in all its forms? …

So 25 pounds later, I climbed back to 135lb / 61kg…  I accidentally ate gluten and saw that it didn’t bother me “not that much”… I was eating a peanut butter toast… You know all the things I didn’t eat anymore…

I can see I’m going back down the slope I had climbed. So since this morning, I have eaten my chicken salad with cucumbers, romaine lettuce, shallots, olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

I don’t want to end up like 3 years ago … I kick my ass and eat right because nobody is going to do it for me!

Please note that this text is not self-flogging, it is accepting to fall, to get up and move forward!

We never give up!

Here is what will be on my fridge for the next few weeks!
