Thanks for your response. I had a long talk with the doctors before I made the decision to come off of my diet at 19. They told me if I came off I should eat “normally” meat, eggs, fish, you name it, because my body would need the vitamins I guess. So I think I ate too well this past 6 years. My favourite food is spaghetti bolognese, so I’m guessing I haven’t done myself any favours! haha. I will adhere to your advice and have started eating better. I am not back on the forumula yet. I need to see the doctors here about it, but I mentioned PKU and they pulled out the probes! I guess I’m the first they’ve had! Way to make me feel like I’m from Krypton (cept without the powers!). Have a good day everyone!
