Received these goodies from @proteinbakery @proteinbakeryuk  They kindly sent me these yummies to sample and review!
So far I tucked into the cashew and chocolate cookies and OH MY HOLY GOODNESS THEYRE GOOD. I’ll be posting a review and hopefully a discount code for you guys to try for yourselves! They have a USA based website and one for the UK so you won’t miss out! So far service and the diet taste = a big 10/10 five stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

me, my IBS and what it taught me 

So today’s post will have to be a little different. I want to talk about something that is currently effecting me. IBS. Irritable Bowl Syndrome. Firstly, it sucks. It really sucks.

Basically i’m no doctor (yet) but it’s very common for recovered anorexics to develop some sort of digestive issues and problems with their body functioning which continues even after recovery. For me this is IBS… well that is what the doctors are calling it. 

When i was sick i was very underweight, and by starving myself i was ruining my digestion. There was simply nothing to digest and my bowls became sluggish and lazy, my metabolism dropped and i was in full force starvation mode. This is bad for a number of reasons but today i want to focus on the negative long term effects. Recovering i had to eat a lot of food, a lot a lot in order to put myself in a position where i had excess calories and could gain weight. This meant a sudden shock for my digestive system now overloaded with food and not knowing what to do with it. I’d get seriously blocked up and it would make me bloat like crazy. It would hurt too and i was so upset because of my protruding belly. It wasn’t fun and it just made recovery all the more difficult. I became bulimic and abused laxatives pretty excessively, this only destroyed my digestive system more and more….

Now i still have the same symptoms but I’m learning how to deal with them and avoid them… having said that i still slip up. I’m sat here typing feeling bloated and very much in pain. 
I usually avoid white starchy carbs, fried foods, too much lactose, gluten… my biggest downfall? Fruit! I’m obsessed with fruit, all fruit. However the fructose really REALLY irritates my digestion and it’s impossible to deal with. Portion control is the key but when it comes to fruit i have no portion control! 

It doesn’t happen so often now but it still hits me hard, i get the same emotions and the same feelings of looking pregnant, not fat, pregnant because i know it doesn’t increase my body fat and i know it will pass with time but it’s still so frustrating and upsetting to watch all my hard work disappear as i get bloated. Then there’s the fact that i can’t do anything when I’m bloated! I can’t walk without cringing in pain… 

but I’m starting over tomorrow, more control over my fruit portions and more awareness of my gut! It’s probably always going to be a problem for me and mentally it is hard to deal with but I’m trying my best. Things could be so much worse, i’m incredibly lucky to have my life and despite the huge pain in the ass IBS is I know I’m pretty darn lucky and i can’t be ungrateful for what i have. So my message to you is this: 

we all have shit we have to deal with, no “fitspo”, no model, no celebrity, no one, is perfect. Life is about learning to focus on the good and enjoy every moment of it despite the bumps in the road 
Don’t forget that we all have our problems and never look down on someone because of their problems or look down on yourself because of yours. We are all going to struggle in our lives, why not come together and help each other struggle through rather than idolising “perfect” people or insulting those with flaws.
