A zit appeared on my chin yesterday morning. Damn. That means there's STILL something in my diet that shouldn't be there.
When i went from the Personal Paleo Code to Strong Medicine, the slight flushing on my nose and cheeks i used to get in the evenings got better. Before i started all this, i blamed it on wine. When it didn't go away on the PPC, i suspected it was either the nuts (i used a lot of coconut milk during that month) or the eggs (a dozen and a half per week). On SM, i expected that pimples would be a thing of the past, too.
Now, bearing in mind that i haven't been PERFECT this past week, it doesn't have to be the meat i've been eating, the coffee i've been drinking, or the slices of lime i've put in my six glasses of water a day. BUT, since i've been back at home, the only other things i've had are a small acorn squash, some butter, and 4 oz. of sake (unless i'm forgetting something). The things i ate before leaving California are not out of the question, however; some reactions take awhile to manifest.
*Sigh* ... I'm going to have to try another experiment; that's the only way to erase ALL the question marks. From last night on, it's black tea, not coffee, with my otherwise-compliant diet. (Wish i liked green tea, but something about it puts me off.) I could have removed the lime/lemon from my water first, but plain water-drinking is something i have so little enthusiasm for, i might not drink enough ... and i suspect that my mostly-meat diet requires more flushing away. I've read that people who have food sensitivities can react to coffee as well, so that is -- unfortunately -- a possibility. :-(
