My Skin Betrayed ME!

“What do you mean you’re not happy?, what do you mean that you don’t like cashews or avocados anymore? You have eaten guacamole before, eaten cashews on multiple occasions and have even tasted cashew milk here and there. Now you have made me look like not only a fool but a raccoon eyed blowfish with a rash on my neck! EXPLAIN YOURSELF TO ME RIGHT NOW!”

These are the exact emotions and feelings that I had when I started a new weightloss diet that was strict about eating avocados and/or nuts for a few days. I wanted the truth from my skin about why all of a sudden it had begun to betray me in so many ways. But we all know that our skin doesn’t talk, it just reacts. It was already hard enough adjusting to no longer eating meat (please see post that is labeled “gastroparesis” to understand more, but I went from no red meat to no meat at all) and trying to understand different food groups to ingest, but now I can’t have avocados?!! OR nuts?!



I was so heartbroken that I had not taken pictures in weeks and it was so bad that I was even sent home one day from work because my right eye was swollen.

Now I’m afraid to eat anything at all. And it looks as though Im living off of faith instead of food. So what happens now?
