There's very little I actually like. I've tried pasta, bananas, rice, smoothies etc..... but I hate it all, makes me feel sick. My taste buds are very picky. I dont even drink milk because it makes me feel like i'm gonna be sick. I get a reasonable amount of calcium in from the A to Z vitamins and yopghurts I eat. I do eat about 5 or 6 meals a day, and eat about every 2 hours or so having little meals but very often. I like fresh cod but just can't afford to buy it any more than once a week. I've had healthy checks like cholestorol checks, vitamin level in my blood checks, organ checks, scans, blood pressure and everything and got a very good result back from the doctor. The doctor said the only thing i'm really lacking in is protein. My heart was found to be very healthy, liver etc...all were fine, my daily life energy levels I know are very good indeed and I feel fine, feel about 18, and i'm 33. My blood pressure was found to be as good as an 18 year old who also doesn't smoke or drink alcahol at all. I drink nothing but water filtered from the tap by a britter filter. So all in all my diet works for me, and after all these tests its been proven i'm not unhealthy. Its just this past week i've been feeling so bloated its been hard to finnish the runs, and I was guessing it might be because instead of eating less food, but eating food with high carb content i've been eating more food with less carb content to make up up for the fact im not getting enough carb for the runs.
I'm getting £170 a week on disability but i've got so much to pay for every week that I get about £20 left to spend on food every week.
