Nice to meet everyone! Any Hashimoto's put there who have made an informed decision not to follow a specific diet plan? Love all my gluten free, AIP friends out there. You guys are probably healthier and happier! However due to a variety of factors, I have made an informed decision not to follow those protocols, at least at this time in my life. Thank you for accepting me where I am in this decision, and being willing to support me even though I eat Cheetos sometimes.

      I'm not sure what AIP is but I no longer eat gluten because it causes my intestines to swell. I become so bloated that I feel like my skin will burst open, and my tummy is torn up for weeks.

      AIP was so hard! I tried it for a few weeks but couldn't stick with it because I was hungry all the time and my blood sugar was crashing

      It also helps me to remember that lack of sleep, overworking, stress (like say stressing about what I’m eating), toxic people and all kinda of other things cause inflammation and flair ups. Stepping away from hyper focus on food into a holistic approach of self care feels much better tho easier said than done

      I used to follow a very strict diet and I felt so much better. But I developed an eating disorder after healing from an eating disorder earlier in life 😑 so now I am trying to find a balance. There are no rules. I just try to ask myself each day “what would make my body feel the best right now” often it’s gluten free and dairy free and all that, but yesterday it was an almond croissant. One thing I have learned is if you eat something you are sensitive to, just try to not eat it the next day. That feels do-able to me. This helps reduce the number of anti-bodies produced. I also eat Cheetos sometimes 🙂

      I don't follow a specific diet at this time. I have tried a few things and nothing makes me feel differently. So I say do what makes you feel best. Good luck!!

      Hello! I TRY to follow the gluten free diet, But it's only my husband and myself.. so cooking two separate meals becomes a pain sometimes. If there is situations where I can just avoid it, I will (like hamburgers or something like that) my body is weird though, it reacts to some gluten items really bad, and others nothing. It's so hard to figure out eating somedays 😩
