I’m desperately trying to figure this out.
So we all know by now, unfortunately, that I’ve been having some GI issues, issues that culminated in me vomiting mid 26.2 last weekend. Hey, it happens. But it makes working out difficult.
So I’ve since scheduled a gastroenterology appointment, and in the meantime, I’ve been slamming Tums and Prilosec like my life depends on it. An ulcer is the suspected culprit of my troubles, though.
I’ve been doing a little research, and I’m trying to eat foods that are gentle on my belly – so less booze, NO caffeine, and limited amounts of dairy. I’ve made the switch from more pescatarian, to a full-on vegetarian diet, and the combination of all those things has proven only mildly helpful. But as I do more research, signs are pointing to a gentle, possibly vegan diet, even temporarily, until we can get this all healed up.
So I’m thinking of trying it out, at least for a month, with extra emphasis on the dairy elimination part, as the dairy is the party that really makes things unbearable.
What do you guys think? Can any vegans out there help a brotha out?
(This means no eggnog lattes 😦 )
