Weigh In & Whole 30 day 6

Last weigh in two weeks ago: 181.9
This weeks weigh in: 178.1

Did you hear that? ONE SEVENTY.......yeeehooo!

Ok, this whole 30 is HARD.  I am having a hard time finding what to eat.  Suppose to be only meat, eggs, fish, veggies, yams, little fruit.  Um....good meat is EXPENSIVE! Gah!!! I've always been lerie of diets that say "No: blank, blank, blank blank.." I am on board with the no grains/gluten.  But no dairy, beans, rice, ect....hard. Yes white rice is a grain but does not have gluten or phytic acid- which pulls calcium from bones and teeth. And I am on board with no sugar.  After the 30 days, or when I go broke, I will stick to eating no grains and no sugar...of course with an *occasional treat.

I am still struggling on whether this is "right" too.  Vegan's say meat causes cancer ect. Why do some doctors say, "animal products were not made for humans!" while others say, "animal products are vital to our health". {Seriously read both but I'm too lazy to put links right now}.  I am eating organic meat, but I am still NOT SURE WHAT TO BELIEVE! Gr..... I am sticking to it though, or at least until I go broke. Which will be soon. Ha.

What I am loving: I feel pretty good.  The weight is coming off quickly.

Don't love: Expensive. Don't know what to eat E.V.E.R.  Eggs for breakfast again? yes. Hm. what's for lunch? eggs again? no no. um......plain hot dog? I guess. (grass fed organic hot dog. yes they make them. yes they cost more than gold.)

BUT....I made spaghetti squash last night and it was great!!! I got super full and felt like I was eating real spaghetti.  I guess it takes time to get into a routine of meals.  This strictness is only 30 days.

Apparently this is a detox. I had no clue.  I talked my friend Ilsa into doing it w me and she's doing amazing.  She is doing way better than me, lol.  She bought the book and has been giving me info, and I told her I didn't know this was a detox before I signed up for it..ha.

How I feel right now: GIVE me a muffin. NOW. A non gluten, not so great tasting muffin will be fine. Anything will do.  Give it to me!!! No? ok fine.

Why am I doing this?
I am trying to help my teeth. I am doing lots of research, and the more I read and listen to podcasts I hear that cavities and gum disease is a warning sign from more serious diseases such as Heart Disease and Cancer. Now, I am not sure if this is %100, but I do know an infected tooth is very serious, and our teeth have nerves, cells that connect through out our whole body.

I could see the two big whole where I need root canals when I came home from the dentist and I looked with a light.  I *think* they are getting smaller. I am not blowing smoke people. They are either getting smaller or some reason I can't see them very well anymore.  I know this takes time. I try not to look often so I don't get discouraged.  If this doesn't work, don't worry, I will get them filled.  I hope to have good news the next time I see a dentist though.

I have been doing Fermented Cod Liver Oil, Raw butter which I made myself, calcium and vit D3, and no grains/sugar/phytic acid.  Or very low phytic acid (I had some nuts).

I am really enjoying my books, Nutrition and physical Degeneration by dr Weston Price, and Cure Tooth Decay by Ramiel Nagel.

How are you?!!

Love, The Curvy Housewife
