Hello im Ian. 2 years ago i was institucionalized in a psych ward at 17, after going on an elimination diet today i just participated in a 5k race. AMA!
No gluten no added sugar and i try to keep omega 6 oils low, like canola oil and sunflower seed oil. Coffee has become a come and go thing.
Not that I know anything, but I thought Omega-6 was good for you, particularly the brain.
In balance with omega 3 as it is most people ingest way too much of it, i have taken omega 3 pills for this reason and it helped.
Nice work. Will you try to get any faster or will you focus on continuing to heal?
Running has become part of how i feel better I do want to get faster and continue racing.
Why do you think the sauna helped you so much at first?
I think it helps with inflammation greatly, which is what i think the problem is and why changing your diet can help you so tremendously.
Does any music motivate you while you do your thing?
I dont listen to music while running no.
How bad were your withdrawal symptoms from eliminating sugar from your diet?
Bad at first the want to binge is strong, much easier to wean yourself periodically than to go cold turkey. I also had binge withdraw symptoms from bread to this day i can taken in by the smell of toast.
How did you come out of all of this?
Still trying to figure how to process all of it, going from being stuck in your room 24/7 and feeling normal is a very huge difference.
So what’s your diet now?
