Ok, So I know I haven't posted anything in a while, So for anyone interested here it is.... My personal PKU update
I must say things are going pretty well for me at the moment, I've been on the diet now for about a month maybe a little longer and I feel great!!! I now keep a food diary just for my own benefit. So I can keep track of the foods I eat during the day. I'm not totally on the diet I still eat things like bread and chocolate every now and again but I just couldn't cut everything out! The main food I have cut out my diet is meat, which at the start was soooo hard because it got to a point were I didnt even think about what I was eating I just ate it. Chicken for me was the worst to cut out I pratically ate it everyday!! But I was very strict with myself and I have managed to cut meat out all together
Food is now becoming less of a problem for me and im starting to enjoy it again. I've even attempted cooking some PKU meals and tried meat free products which turned out to taste better then I thought.
WILL POWER... has been key to this process. I knew I had to be commited to my diet if I was to see any type of results. I know my diet isnt prefect yet but im getting there slowly and iv made more progress then ever by doing it this way. I have even been to fast food places and for meals and order the veggie option which is sooosososososo hard when all the temptation is infront of you... But its just about telling your self you can do it!! and the satisfaction you get from being able to say no the foods you know you can't eat.
So now iv got my diet sorted its time to take on another task!.... This one is going to be the most difficult one... Drinking my formula!!!!
I will have let you know how that goes guys!! I am a little worried about it but im gonna try my hardest!!!
The reason I put "What they say is true" in the title is when I was younger and seriously bad at the diet and formula the doctors and other professional would tell me how good I would feel if i did what I was supposed too. This never made any difference to me and I carried on eating what I liked and not taking my formula. I can honestly say up until now I have never felt the benefits of eating heathly and sticking to the diet.
If you would of told me how much more awake and less tired I would feel a few months ago I wouldn't believe you... But take my word for it coming from someone that never believed it could make a difference it really does!!!! I have more energy to go out in the week. Were as before I would just get in from work and go to bed now I am much more active and I loveeeee it!!!!
Thanks for taking the time to read my post and if its helped anyone in anyway then im happy
