Tonight I ate my first solid dinner in 34 days. Vegetables wrapped in seaweed with a little soy sauce, and two egg whites. It was pretty good.
But after about 10 minutes, my stomach started cramping. And then came the gas. Horrible, wretched, "have to leave the room" gas. Hoowee it was bad. Just be glad your computer doesn't have a smell option. (Maybe on the next MacBook "Air"?)
I never thought I'd say this, but I miss my apple protein smoothie. I called Chen and we're meeting soon to figure out how to get back to a normal diet without these side effects. Meanwhile, I feel totally stuffed, on what a month ago would have been an appetizer for me. I'm continually amazed by how quickly and completely the body's chemistry can change.
