Did the Endo Diet Help?

OK, so today would mark the end of the Endo madness for this month.  So as I reflect on this past week, I have to wonder, did the Endo diet help?  Actually, it did.

It was extremely hard to stick to the diet.  I messed up a few times.  Plus, I had just gone grocery shopping right before I started the diet so I couldn’t let the food go to waste.  But even with the mess ups, I do have to say that I felt better.

I am not really sure if it helped with the pain because I pulled a muscle in my lower back so I was in an extreme amount of pain, regardless.  But I didn’t get any of my Endo migraines.  I didn’t throw up at all.  I had plenty of energy–my body was just unable to keep up with me because of my back.

I do have to say that I was very happy when the Endo bloat went away (as well as the Endo fog brain).  So now I am just going to try to do my best to stick with the diet, especially during a particular two weeks out of the month.  Next month I will be able to know for sure if it is working (as long as I don’t pull any more muscles).

And if anyone is wondering, here is what my daily meals have looked like (including my few mess-ups):
