I love food. You might say it's my drug of choice. It doesn't seem to like me anymore on so many levels. I'm trying to make healthier choices and get the weight off that years of allowing myself to eat to fill the voids of my life have caused along with illness. I'm doing fairly well at it, even though it is taking what seems like forever. So much easier to put on than to take off. My problem I have had for the last few months though is puzzling at best. I feel fine in the days as long as I don't eat. I will have energy and my allergies will seem nonexistent. As soon as I eat though I get to feeling tired, listless and my cough comes back. I will cough so hard my throat will get sore. My sinus will start in and it's just not pretty. What foods you might ask? I haven't found any to date that don't do this. Today I felt really good when I got out of bed. Did fine until I ate. About four hours after eating I was feeling good again. Went to dinner and ate completely different foods and have felt like crap every since. Perhaps the allergist will be able to clarify it for me, but it's frustrating at best. So my choice every day is to eat or not to eat and if I do then what?
