Seems like it's been 6 years since I started my diet, usually I'd mark such an occasion with a big ole hunkering cake! But those were the old days. Now I am having vegetable smoothies or almonds to pass the time. Added no eggs or nightshades to the regimen, although I had to look up what a nightshade was. Makes my six tomato plants seem like a huge waste, but I don't know any other way of doing an elimination diet than eliminating things. Not feeling incredible yet, but have lost 25 lbs, down to a svelte 300.
So my garden this year, planted prior to new eating plan, is loaded with things I'm not eating. I have tomatoes, green, yellow, and jalapeno peppers, all of which are nightshades. I have peas, green beans, potatoes, and corn. Right now I'm only able to have the cabbage, swiss chard, and lettuce. Worry that as long as I am burning fat I will be burning the bad things out of my system, not allowing me to know when my system is reset. Be nice to have my biggest worry be that I was burning too much fat.
