I told a physician (Karen Williams, MD) that I'd blog my experience. People say they're going to do something like this and half-ass it. I promised I wouldn't compromise so she could have a true sense of the restorative nature of the plan. In three months I'll have a physical and see the numbers. My hope? Get off the meds.
I bought the book. I vowed 3 months.
So today at the beginning:
My glucose before breakfast was 123.
My A1C is 6.2%
Ranexa 1000mg twice a day
Losartan Potassium 100mg
Sotalol HCL 120mg twice a day
Breo Ellipta 200mcg /25mcg
Potassium CL 20MEQ
1 low dose aspirin.
I began this morning. I’m unaccustomed to a coffeeles, milkless, sodaless morning. It was odd to have water. I raced with an empty stomach to my podiatric appointment. Not a good plan. Too many morning meds on an empty stomach. Baby steps here. I’m not much of a cook. Okay. I’m not a cook. At all. So recipes will have to come. I had a piece of 100% whole grain organic bread with a wave of organic peanut butter. For lunch I had a sweet potato. I bought provisions at the store. The store wasn't a happy place. I felt overwhelmed and confused by the choices. I bought bread (I think it's not right but I'll work on it,) peanut butter, brussels sprouts, and beans.
Tomorrow – meals. But I have to learn. Today I learned organic is goddamned expensive.
