*My intent is to report my progress and choices in managing my experiences with compulsive eating and bipolar disorder. Joy in my life is in the giving and the ability to receive.




FOOD

       I have found for me not to underestimate the nutritional value of a baked potato eaten with its skins incorporated in my daily food intake.
Golden spuds and sweet potatoes are especially good.

       In doing my mind, body emotions and overall biochemistry good; I no longer eat sugar. In the beginning I first gradually decreased my sugar intake and finally I came to realize it was necessary to eliminate it all together.

       I have found for me that the berry fruit family, along with fresh apricots, peaches and plums have the least amount of sugar impact in my body.

       I like watermelon and have found for me has a moderate amount of sugar impact in my body.

       Starting the day with a good nutritional breakfast that includes protein gets me to a good start and last me for awhile. I also make sure I have adequate amount of protein in my other meals along with my vegetables and nuts. As mentioned earlier on my website grains are a trigger food for me, even the best of grains, like brown rice does not work for me.

       I have found for me that the low fat products have a lot of sugar in it. And for me I choose the high fat products and enjoy them in moderation. Sugar is a concern for me and how it plays havoc on my well being.

       I share my food journey with you, it is my journey and choices in how I keep clean in not to compulsively eat and staying away from sugar. Eating sugar causes a biochemical reaction for me that triggers a compulsive eating addiction. And I utilize all the tools in my recovery to live a clean, thriving, joyful, peaceful and empowered life.
