I try to- with all my digestive issues- i sort of have to. There are lots of things that I can't eat (if i don't want to get sick
) So that kind of helps
I make just about every dinner we eat at home. Lately, since I have PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome- it makes you insulin resistant) and Gastroparesis- i'm REALLY trying to watch my sugar intake so that I can hopefully prevent myself from becomming a diabetic down the road. It's hard though. I mess up a lot and eat bad stuff
But when I cook - i try to make everything from scratch so i know exactly what goes in it and i can monitor what i put in it. / We really don't eat out too often, but when we do, i try to order healthy (baked chicken sandwiches/ healthy salads/ stuff like that). I definitely don't deprive myself though- I'm not into "dieting" i'm more into making eating healthy a part of my lifestyle
I won't deprive myself of a cookie or a piece of pizza though- i just eat when i'm hungry and stop when i'm full. I eat 5-6 small meals a day- and that seems to really help keep my digestive issues in check
I don't drink soft drinks at all- haven't had one in over 8 years.
