So I went a bit overboard on the carbs today -- I wasn't thinking about the fact that once I'd splurged on sorbet, I probably shouldn't eat pasta on the same day. On the other hand, I was still close to the low-carb threshold of 150 grams, although I would much prefer to be significantly below 150. I think it will probably take me a few weeks to get this under control, because the past several months while I've been sticking to FODMAP, I haven't been counting carbs or calories, but I've lost weight gradually because when you cut out so much sugar from your diet, your carbs automatically drop. But now that I'm back on FS, tracking food gets me more focused on precisely what I'm eating. Still -- I have to get back into the habit of being more thoughtful about planning the day so that my carb count shrinks back down. I think I was just so hysterical about figuring out the FODMAP thing, I got a bit sidetracked. Time to get back in tracking mode...

Interesting reading back through my journal entries from last fall when I tried to get started dieting again. I was really struggling, and that struggled continued until I saw the gastroenterologist in January. Since then, I've been working hard to stick to the FODMAP diet, and I've really got a handle on it now. The result is that I'm not sick anymore, and I have more energy than I've had in a very long time. Also, my skin looks a lot better -- no more of those just under the skin rashes or bumps. So somehow, in adopting FODMAP, I've apparently eliminated many things to which I must be allergic. Also, I think there must be some link between the principles of low-glycemic eating and FODMAP, which responds to fructose intolerance. FODMAP eliminates more foods than low-glycemic does -- so your sugar count is even lower than on low-glycemic. But it's not meant to be permanent. The idea is to starting adding foods back in once your IBS symptoms are under control -- so I'm going to start to do this, and my first splurge is -- drum roll please -- A PEACH! I just can't imagine going through the summer with no peaches or nectarines. So I'm going to give it a try. I'm keeping my fingers crossed I can tolerate it. If I'm OK, I'll go buy another one and really go wild!
