this picture has nothing to do with the post, I just felt like sharing baby jazz on the blog. And as you can see nothing has changed with my hair. Once bangs always bangs!
So I told you guys I’m on the South Beach diet, but there is a very good reason for that and that’s not because I’m fat or feel the need to lose some weight. I’m doing this primarily because of my illness.
When I was 14 years old I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease. A chronic inflammatory bowel disease that is situated in my colon, but the location of the disease is very different from patient to patient. And from that day I had to change my whole lifestyle, not because I had some bad habits that caused the disease, but because medicine and food plans now had a place in my life that could have an influence on my health and the disease.
Therefore I’m always experimenting on my body with different foods, and that is not always funny, but for a girl like me that used to play a little scientist when I was little with a physics set my daddy gave me – and what a lovely play set may I add – I find it pretty fascinating how food can change the course of the disease from feeling really awful to brilliant!
And that’s why I’m on the SB-diet right now: to see how my body and the disease reacts when I pipe down for the sugar, starches and carbs from my basic diet. But first I need to digest the 1 kg apple pie I ate today, so the SB-diet kicks in for real tomorrow and you can follow the process on my blog.
