Over the past few weeks/months I’ve been worried about my health. I get bad headaches that i’ve been told are migranes, I feel unwell and energy just disappears.
I took some time out and started writing what I ate and when things happened… to find if there is a pattern between what I eat and headaches, or other feelings.
I discovered that what I eat is not good and althou I don’t have loads of junk food – I also do not have a very mixed diet when it comes to food types. I often have different flavourings of things but not the correct or even close to correct portions of types of foods.
I have a low amount of starchy foods in my diet or did until I really realised what they were doing. I’ve always loved vegitables and many meats particularly beef. But often missed the potatoes as thought them as boring and avoided them unless they were chips.
I’ve discovered different ways to cook them from friends suggestions, aswell as TV cook shows, books and the internet. I used to hate rice, unless mixed with a curry but quite like these rice noodles which are just as good.
I was low on energy and still am as not got the balance right yet but cutting down on sweets early in the day is helping overall.
I am having more regular meals – like taking food to work and having meals same time of day each day which seems to help reduce the tiredness and exhaustion I was feeling.
There does seem to be a balance issue. I’ve misunderstood much of what I read on foods previously and currently re-training myself the basics to get back on track.
So don’t think there is anything wrong with me. I just messed up on the things that helped with slow energy release – oops.
Were in a world where we expect things instantly… My energy was the same – a quick fix is a sugar filled drink or chocolate bar whereas some breakfast cerial can be fast but last so much longer.
