Starting Again; The mono diet

Today I am off work because yesterday I felt dizzy and had bad head aches. I was bumping in to walls like a drunk bambi deer.

Today I am home.

My husband sent me this video and said “this is interesting”

I watched it.

Then researched the mono diet for a few hours before going out to buy some ‘mono’ foods. I struggle greatly with portion sizes, rapid weight gain and weight loss, IBS, food intolerances, head aches, really bad skin, yo-yoing back and forth from size 6 to size 12 (i have clothes for both situations!).

I have decided to give this mono thing a go. why not.

I have a caffeine habit of 6-7 cups of tea a day and 3-4 cups of coffee. all of which have 2 x sugars in. I plan to follow a mono style diet, get plenty of sleep, drink lots of water and give up my habitual cravings for sugar and salt and crap.

This is Day Zero – Decision Day and here is my food haul;

Feeling; like a bucket of smashed crabs. dizzy, headaches, aching limbs.
