Oh my aching back !!! Is this detox ?!!

Well I thought things were moving along pretty well but then a day or two ago I started to experience body pain again, this time a lot of back and hip pain. I actually think this is a result of detoxing off wheat, corn, sugar , caffeine and dairy!

I keep drinking tons of water to flush out toxins - I am managing but it isn't fun.  Makes doing much of anything physical a challenge.  Keep telling myself "this too shall pass".  I tried to get in for a massage but my masseuse was all booked up. Phase 3 of this plan asks that one day a week you get a massage if possible. Sounds good to me and boy, I think I need it !!

Resetting My Metabolism

Took me several few months to get back here but here I am folks !!  Let me give you a rundown of what has been happening with me.

After sticking to low carb I was pretty successful then hit a major plateau.  Nothing I did kick started my weight loss.  But on top of that I started to feel really crappy.  Not incredible nasty or anything but far from feeling great. Bloating, on and off body pain, mild headaches, lethargy... my RA was getting bad.  My skin was dry. My hair was dry. My nails were brittle.  I looked old.  And as such I decided this wasn't worth it. And to be truthful, I had grown to hate the entire way of eating.

Without a great deal of thought but rather a gut reaction to put an end to my discomfort, I started to add grains back into my diet - so far so good. Or so I thought.   A starch here, a starch there and the weight started to creep back on. BUT I was ok with that cause I was starting to feel better. Again, or so I thought.

All hell broke loose.
