I have decided after much much thought that I really need to change my diet. After suffering for so long with my throat issues, I realized that its all about food. Food can be our friend or enemy. Not just weight loss and weight gain, but over all well being and for me, the food I am eating is KILLING ME. yes. It is. Bluntly speaking-my food is killing me. As you may have read, I may have GERD and currently I am on prilosec and tums every day. i cannot tell you how scared I have been of eating lately. I eat ofcourse, but every bite i take I freak out because I am scared i will eat something that will trigger my mucus to thicken again in my throat and cause me to start panicking for air. It is really NOT fun! TRUST ME! It is so bad I have done so much reading that i have decied that i will be avoiding:
DAIRY AND EGG
FATTY FOODS (i GERD doesnt go hand in hand with fats)
I am extremely sad. I am soooo sad you cant even imagine. I used to live offf tons of yogurt and cottage cheese just 3 weeks ago! I would eat tons of almond butter and peanut butter daily with almost every meal! I would eat french toast some morning and wraps. I LIVED OFF THIS STUFF! I would walk my booty 45 minutes to trader joes just to get 4 tubs of greek yogurt! I am seriously terrified at how bad this whole mucus thing has been and still not recovred completely.
I will be eating whey protein. Also eggs arent completely out, but very limited only for my baking.
I dont know when I will recover and if i will have the guts to eat any of the above foods again. I am scared. It was the worst weeks of my life. I never felt so scared in my life.
