Tastes Great. And Finally, Less Filling
It was a popular Italian restaurant, and I'd eaten a traditional Italian restaurant dinner: bread, salad, and meaty lasagna for dinner, followed by tiramisu for dessert. Approximately an hour and a half later, I had my very first IBS attack.
I spent over an hour on the toilet that first time, doubled over with painful gas and cramps, my backside exploding all over the bowl in a seemingly endless torrent of liquishit spiked with poo pebbles. Never before in my life had I ever felt such pain or smelled such death coming out of any living human being - especially me.
For five hellish years since that terrible night, almost every single morning has begun for me with at least one round of diarrhea – sometimes two or three – accompanied with horrible cramping and abdominal pain. Then of course I felt just awful all day, and I would always have to be mindful of whatever I ate throughout the day to avoid any immediate, explosive attacks; but they would still happen from time to time.
Such was life with IBS.
Or so I thought.
I’d started eating very healthfully a few years ago: lots of grains, fruits and veggies; very low fat content; more whole, natural foods and less processed stuff; mostly water to drink; and lots of soluble fiber. These things that were all supposed to help control the IBS attacks.
Even still, almost every meal gave me indigestion and painful gas, and rotten was truly the best word to describe what came out of me. I couldn't even stand my own brand anymore! Every once in a while, though, I would have a nice, normal, healthy-smelling, solid bowel movement; and that intermittent normalcy was my first clue that it might really be the food.
During the last couple of years I developed carpal tunnel syndrome, then came full-blown arthritis. I started noticing that my ankles would swell up nearly every afternoon, and during just about any meal my entire face would bead up with perspiration. All the while I was attributing these issues to the aging process and pre or peri-menopause.
Then in August I had what I think was either a gallbladder attack or kidney stone. I'm not sure which. Somehow I rode out the waves of intense pain, nausea and vomiting for about two hours, and then it subsided just as I was deciding whether I needed to head to the hospital. This happened immediately after eating a favorite of mine: a lean meat and cheese sandwich.
Thus began anew yet another search for something, anything, to make the digestive problems go away, something that made real sense to explain why even healthy food could cause such distress.
I finally clicked on a link I had ignored many times before because it sounded like bullshit: "IBS cure”. Yeah right… but I was finally desperate enough to check it out. I am eternally grateful I did, because that link led me to Sherry Brescia's Great Taste No Pain* simplified food combining program.
Starting literally on Day One, the daily IBS symptoms, painful gas, intestinal cramps, and malodorous output ended. Instantly.
On Day Two I could actually feel the increase in energy!
On Day Three the carpal tunnel and arthritis symptoms began to disappear, and my ankles don't swell up in the afternoons anymore. My face doesn't sweat while eating.
I don't feel sleepy after any meal, either... eating invigorates me now! I'm once again eating foods that are forbidden for people with IBS, and I'm sleeping better at night, too. I'm also losing around 3 pounds per week!
All these benefits are happening effortlessly as a result of doing nothing more than simply watching how I eat certain foods together.
Even if you don't have horrid digestive problems like mine, food combining will make you feel better, give you more energy, help you lose any excess weight, and can relieve symptoms of and/or reverse many chronic conditions for which you may take daily medication or supplements. I strongly encourage you to check it out for yourself.
Food combining is the reason I changed my user name from IBSalot to IBS NO MORE.
* You should know in advance that I am an affiliate and will receive a referral fee if you order the full program... but I became an affiliate because I believe in it and am personally seeing more amazing results and benefits every day.
While it would be great if everyone ordered GTNP, it's more important to me that you get help to end your digestive problems, lose excess weight, and feel better every day. Look up "food combining" on the web and do a little research for yourself. There's enough free info out there to make your head spin. GTNP takes guesswork away by providing a suggested meal plan including thirty days of menu options for three meals and two snacks per day, and a recipe book full of properly combined, truly dynamite dishes. And it works!
There's a free trial offer report called "Pain-Free in One Day". Take food combining for a four-day test drive and find out for yourself how eating this way will make you feel as awesome as I do!
