I cannot believe the journey I have been on.
For many years I have been constantly tired, extremely bloated (which caused real pain) and my moods were not great.
I have a very busy full time job, so I kept putting it down to the fact that I was always too busy to take time out for myself and make changes.
I have visited specialists in the past and been diagnosed with PCOS and IBS. No diets / food changes to help with these problems ever helped.
My health became such a worry that I went to visit Fiona and my journey began.
I was Wheat, Yeast and Dairy intolerant, with a few other intolerances like peanuts, corn, maize, bananas, pineapple.
First reaction is what am I going to eat, and drink as I do like my white wine at the weekend, and how will I cope without my giant chocolate buttons….
Fiona was full of recipe ideas and food replacements.
I decided I was going to concentrate on the foods I could have and not on the ones that were causing all my problems.
I felt the difference in the first week.
I had really bad headaches for a few days as I was cutting down on the tea also, but after that it became much easier.
My husband is a great cook and started to cook everything from scratch. No packets, no tins. Our first shop reading all the labels took almost 2 hours.
Every minute of the 12 weeks was worth it. I have so much energy, I have dropped a dress size and my mood is much brighter. I feel I am back to being the kind of person I used to be.
I have advanced osteoarthritis in my right knee and although it’s not cured, it is much improved.
I could quite easily stay on this eating plan and keep feeling this good. Fiona also gave great advice when it came to making sure I was getting all my vitamins within my new eating plan.
I cannot thank Fiona enough for all her help. Fiona is so easy to talk to and understood exactly how I was feeling. The recipes and the websites she gave me have been a godsend. Ordering food on a night out is so much easier than you could imagine. Most restaurants accommodate food intolerances with a smile.
Life is good.
Thank you Fiona
