Bulletproof Diet Update

Happy Valentines Day!  Hope you all are having a great day with the ones you love.  At Helton Chiropractic in Lubbock, we did some intensive spring cleaning yesterday.  To thank all the staff who helped out and cleaned and organized, I bought us West Crust Pizza.  West Crust has delicious pizza and a gluten free crust.  Sadly….they were sold out of gluten free so we had their regular crust.  After the first slice, I started sneezing.  After the second slice, I was so full feeling that I was done.  Within about 6 hours, my face was puffier and I could feel puffiness in my fingers and abdomen.  This morning, I was famished, swollen, and craving carbs.  It was a really great exercise in seeing what I’m intolerant of.  I’d heard the words “food hangover” before but I was really feeling it today.

So now I know, I am gluten sensitive.  I will definitely get West Crust Pizza again…but it will have to be gluten free crust.  Many of my cravings are lessened.  I still have a strooooong desire for a Coke Zero.  Sweets aren’t nearly as big a craving and neither is bread for the most part.  In summary….enjoy your day and your sweets with your sweetie….but really pay attention to how you feel afterwards.
