I'm Starving

Not eating that long list of foods is proving very difficult. One week after cutting those items out of my diet and I am still getting hives daily. A few more days of this and I am going to go insane. Do you know how hard it is to find foods without any of these ingredients? I refuse to go to a health food store and spend millions when I don't even know what is causing the hives. So, for now, I eat salad with special dressing, rice, meat, cheese, fruits and vegetables. Other than rice chex (no rice crispies, they have soy or something I can't remember) and fruits and veggies, there is nothing I can just snack on. I can't go down and make popcorn or grab a handful of pretzels. No fruit snacks or candy. And lets be honest, how often do you eat a banana and realize you are now more hungry than before? So, for my daily snacks I usually have to make a meal and just not eat a lot of it. I eat salad or cheese or a Greek yogurt. I have two boxes of Hot Tamales staring me in the face each day from their location on top of the tv. Oh, how I want to eat them. But I am not having any problems keeping the lost weight off, since I can't eat anything.
Last night we had a RS meeting I was in charge of and we had chicken salad sandwiches on croissants. I really wanted one. Even just a spoonful of chicken salad would have been enough. But that darn mayonnaise in the salad ruined everything. Anyway, I am not usually a negative person but you know how people on a strict diet are usually moody? Well, take that times ten. Being on a forced strict diet is the worst thing ever. Anyway, that is enough negativity for one post. As soon as I realize this isn't worth it, I will be eating everything in sight. Starting with sweet pork nachos with tomatillo ranch dressing from Costa Vida.

Ok first things first... everytime I eat a banana I always feeling starving afterwards!!!!!! I thought it was just me! haha.

Second--I've started trying to do a gluten free diet, and while there are a lot of gluten free products that are great replacements, some things just don't cut it. Although for me if I cheat I just get an upset stomach, not a bunch of hives. So I feel you girl! Hopefully you can figure out the cause soon and get past all these shenanigans.

Wheat would be a tough one. . . my sister has a gluten intolerance. And I would really miss any type of fruit. sorry you're struggling! Hang in there!

I sure hope things get better for you soon Chelsea. But I have a cousin that was allergic to a bunch of different foods too and by cutting it all out and slowly introducing them back into his diet and also working with his doctor he has been able to work most things back in so, hang in there.
