Although I am getting better, I am in no condition to travel or spend time in crowded places so I will spend the last day of 2014 and the first day of 2015 alone in my home.
I am not sad for being alone as I am getting my health back.
I’ve lost another pound and got a bit closer to my 100lbs (size 4) goal. I am now 122lbs. So, in a week, 8lbs is a good progress with my high aminoacids and high fat (good fat) but low carb leaky gut diet. I cannot believe that I am eating so much and losing weight.
As I cannot go out, because it is too damn cold and rainy/stormy outside and I am sick, I took my treadmill out from the closet and will start walking 10miles a day like I used to do by the seaside in spring, summer and autumn 🙂 No winter can stop me from my only favorite exercise.
I will start today, man I love walking outside but this is the lemonade I can get now 🙂
Today, I will write about my super healthy Alex diet against leaky gut and fibromyalgia.
The movie project is going beyond good, it is going super because I had lots of time at home as I am sick. I watch 4-5 movies a day from the list and I suppose I will finish this in a month, not in a year 🙂
I will be adding new projects on December 31st, but my new year has already started with this blog I can admit.
So, thanks for following and supporting, you don’t know how much it means to me 🙂
Healthy food is better than I’ve expected. I’ve already lost 7 lbs in a week with extremely healthy Leaky Gut diet.
As you know, I was 130lbs and want to be 100lbs as I was 6 months ago, and before that :).
It is my ideal weight as I am 5’3” (tiny). I gained this much as I was sick at home, could not exercise and ate lots of junk as I was depressed. So I wanna be size 4 again as I am my most comfortable self. Plus, all my clothes are size 4, I cannot fit in anything 😛
It is not an official GAPS diet, but very good to cope with Leaky Gut. As I always disconform the diets written by others I created my own Alex Diet 🙂 It is a low carb, high good-fat and high aminoacid diet. Not like Dukan or Atkins as they are like hell, you almost eat nothing and go mental 🙂
On my next post, I will give the details of what I eat/drink in a day. So you can try it too…
1. Get my health back. Win against Leaky Gut Syndrome, Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Fibromyalgia through healthy diet full of probiotics, aminoacids but without carbs and caffeine. First deadline: Show some progress in 10 days and be energetic on Jan 5th 2015 for my PhD thesis defence meeting. (first posted on 23.12.2014)
2. Be size 4 again, which is my ideal size since I am 5’3” (160cm) and that is tiny :))) My deadline to reach that is end of January 2015. However, I will not do a speed diet or anything. I just keep on what I eat and walk everyday. The goal does not end here of course, keeping that size throughout the year is the real deal. (first posted on 23.12.2014)
New goals will be added as I get more and more motivated!
PS: If I cannot reach them by deadlines I will revise them and keep working on them 🙂
I feel better with my bone broth soup which I daily prepare from zero to eat it fresh.
For the last three days I am having:
Bone broth veggie soup (see lazy recipes section under Health Category) 2 big bows 🙂
Propolis (1 spoonfull)
Probiotic yoghurt mixed with normal yoghurt (200 ml)
Kefir (200 ml)
Riched Probiotic Supplement including (I mix it with yoghurt for breakfast)
No gluten, no wheat or wheat products, no milk, no cheese, no coffee/tea, no coke, no sugar, no starchy food, none of them! It is very hard not to drink my morning coffee and eat my bitter chocolate but i guess i will get used to that.
And I feel better. Of course there is gas and stuff weird going on in my stomach like it talks to me mumbling and growling all the time but I guess I got used to it.
Plus I will buy fresh Nigella Seeds(Black Cumin) and L-Glutamine supplement today and take them to boost my immune system.
I use medication that doctor gave me for Candida. That will go on for a week.
So in 10 days I want to get better. First goal 🙂 Get rid of this thing, get healthy and keep it that way for a year 🙂
On 5th of January I have my PhD Thesis defence meeting and I want to be super energetic that day. Although, mmm, I haven’t done much about the thesis lately. I guess I should work on that in the following days.
So 10 days folks 🙂 Wish me luck to fight with my fucking Leaky Gut Syndrome, Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Systemic Candida in my bowels and I hope I will give you good news.
Lamb has the best taste, cow has more bone marrow. I do not prefer poultry or pork, but these will do too.
It is better be organic and this is very important“free range” animals especially for poultry in both ethical and health terms.
Pros: Very easy to find, cheap
Cons: It is the bones of an animal. It doesn’t look like cutted meat. It is the bone and you have to see it.
STEP 2. Boil them in very low heat for 8-12 hrs
Put lots of water in the pot and put 2-5 tablespoons of Apple Cider Vinegar in it to get the best result. Put the bones and open up the heater. Boil it first with moderate heat and take the brownish foam out. We do not eat that. Then put the heater to the minimum, cover the pot and wait for 8-12 hrs. Check 2-3 times about the water level. Usually you do not have to add water in it. If you have to, add previously heated/boiled water.
Yes, it takes so long. Do not forget: The heat should be at the minimum. This is not a meal so cooking it with high heat in short time will not get you what you want. So simply, wait 🙂
STEP 3. Use it immediately or cool it down and put it in the fridge
Using it immediately is nice but you will eat all the fat in it too. However, if you cool it and wait it in the freezer like 4-5 hrs, the fat will freeze on the top.
It will look like this:
See the bones and the white fat on them. Tap on the fat with a spoon and it will crack. Take the fat out and you will see the bone broth jelly inside.
It should look like this:
I usually do not use the fat. No need to gain more weight. The jelly is fatless and full of aminoacids.
When you take the fat out, heat the pot again and take the bones out. You can also take the bone marrows and put them into the jelly or you can eat them directly. Very very healthy and necessary if you have Leaky Gut Syndrome like me.
Now you have your Bone Broth and you can put precooked or steamed peas, chickpeas, beans, veggies, meat, onions, garlic in it to make a nice soup or you can drink it directly when it is warm.
Do not add additional water. That will lower the taste.
Tip: I steam the veggies and other stuff before putting into the broth because broth is already cooked. No need to overcook it and kill the health in it.
