Managed to control my massive weight loss when I switched to the gout and low histamine diet. Thankfully I don't react to cheese so I eat a little of that every day. I've been around the same weight for a week now (give or take 2 pounds).
September, I'm shooting for 10-16 pounds of weight loss, around 2-4 pounds per week. The difficulty isn't losing the weight, it is preventing massive weight loss that will cause my gout to flare up.
I've cut most sugar except for the glass of cherry juice and a little carbs here and there with breakfast. I am STILL off of Zyrtec and the full-body rotating-itch fits are gone! Finally. My brain fog and cognitive issues are slowly repairing. Now that I'm off that pill, the STRONG DESIRE to eat sweets and junk food is gone. Now I understand why they say chronic antihistamine use is linked to Alzheimer's and weight gain. Scary stuff. I had no idea.
As for the #gout
, I still think it was the result of taking mangosteen capsules. Since I stopped, each day I'm able to walk faster and faster with a smaller and smaller limp. Threw those things away.
Current meds / supplements: Vitamin C, #Quercetin
(natural anti-inflammatory and antihistimine), Omega 3, multivitamin and concentrated dark cherry juice. Thinking about adding powdered probiotics to the mix.
All that said. I'm getting back into the swing of things. Working on my eCommerce businesses, catching up on emails, reaching out to new contacts, strategizing and dealing with normal day to day issues.
Also getting the rest of my computer parts, most of them today, hard drives tomorrow. Building the computer over the weekend, I'm hoping without much problem or faults.
Lastly, feel free to reach out about anything business, #eCommerce
or chit-chat in PM. Looking to expand my network, especially anyone in Utah, Nevada or SoCal. If you live in the Southern Utah area and want to hang out, let's make it happen.
