following: Lardoe's own diet
performance: losing 16.0 lb a week
I weighed 274 Lbs just over a year ago, and I did have a surgery in March of 2011, but as of now that was 6 months ago, and I should have already gained back any weight that I had lost. Instead, because of an extreme case of IBS and Colitis, and began an aggressive campaign to completely stop eating food. I know this would sound like an eating disorder – and you know what – it probably is. Unfortunately, the pain I experience with UC and IBS from Diverticulitis is not just 1-2 hours of indigestion after eating, but NON-STOP-PAIN during my body’s attempt to metabolize whatever I had swallowed. This pain was without precedent and it took up most of my waking day, and eventually stole my sleep as well. So I took drastic measure, ignored my doctors, whatever I had read in the past, and most importantly I stopped listening to the advice of non-professionals [regardless of their good intentions], and I lived on a diet based only on my immediate need for food and the necessity to stay away from foods high in protein or fiber (which caused and still causes me the most pain).
