I am now well aware oh how badly oil affects me. Today I was in such agonizing pain I was screaming and nearly collapsed while walking. There was no one around, and it only lasted a little while, but I am now sure that I no longer want to put that crap in my mouth again (Pardon the language). I have been vegan for many years, so the only hudle for me has been to cut out VAD food. It will be a challenge, it will really test me, but I know I have to do it to get my life back. It starts now.
Breakfast: Crackers, tea w/ agave and rice milk
Lunch: Leek and potato soup, another VAD fail
Snack: Cherry tomatoes and crackers
Dinner: The usual green smoothie
I e-mailed Mc.Dougall and he didn't give me a very clear answer "caffeine withdrawl causes depression" but he did give me a link to the introduction to his new book, which I found interesting, which re-kindled my desire to really stick to this program.http://drmcdougall.com/misc/2009nl/feb/starch.htm
