If you read yesterday’s post then you know that I had to take a 24 hour break from the challenge to assess why I was bloated, gassy, and had much abdominal pain. I suspected it was the sugar substitutes and possible phosphorus additives in the low fat, and or sugar free items I had been eating. I suspect I am right, because after 24 hours I feel back to normal and ready to go, minus those food items. If you need to check back to day one to see my rules setup, please click here. I will add one day to the challenge to make it a full 2 weeks due to the day off. You may see affiliate links in this post.
Today, my son and his wife will be coming for dinner, so we are having a nice meal. Below you will see what I have eaten, and will eat for today.
Breakfast: Just coffee
Lunch: 1 medium banana. 1 cup cooked pasta salad with cucumbers, part skim mozzarella cheese .5 ounce, bell pepper, and 2 tbsp Raspberry Vinaigrette. I also had 15 Snyder’s Pretzel nuggets.
