Welcome to CantEatIt.net. If food is not your friend, you've come to the right place.
As your first stop on this website, I invite you to read through my Introductions section to get a better understanding of what this is all about.
Feel free to look around. In the Readers Digest section, you'll find tips on elimination diets, supplements and overall healthy digestive living. Look through our resources for more informative reading options!
Find some recipes (gluten free, wheat free, sugar free, dairy free...but luckily, not taste free) in the Can't Eat It Kitchen.
Along the top of the screen, you can follow the link to read my ramblings in the Blogs section or check for recent posts in Updates. You can search for something specific, and you can even contact me.
I wish you good health and happy eating!
Someone sent an email commenting that a lot the content on the site is a few years old. And they are right. Over the years I haven't found many new ideas, or new approaches that fall outside the scope of what I've already touched on. They all seem to be another version of the advice I've read over the years.
Without even checking, I'm sure there are a number of new books out there. I've picked up a few, but again, I haven't seen anything dazzling that offered insight different from what I've read in the past. Subtle differences in opinion, but really it's variation as opposed to epiphanies.
You need to remember this website is just supposed to help you in your first step to whatever path to health you choose to take. It's a catch-all of everything I've learned/read/experienced for you to glean at a glance, decide what rings true with you, and then research that approach or diet further.
On a side note, I'm changing the settings so comments will have to be approved since there's been an influx of spam over the last year. Most of you email me directly anyway with a question or comment, so it shouldn't make much of a difference ;)
I think people will forgive the fact that I didn't rush back to finish part two of this story. I mean, it isn't exactly the most fun topic, is it? And really, the most important part was the cleanse, because really, the procedure was a breeze.
Arrived at the clinic. They did a few heart tests on me (to make sure I was ok to be put under), and then I was brought up to the recovery room.
There's a lot of information online about what happens during a colonoscopy, but what I wanted to find - before I had mine - was a personal account. I never found one, and I believe it would have helped me prepare for it better. So here I am, sharing my own experience just in case it helps other people.
Recently I've been having a problem with cramps. Not the same cramps I usually have after consuming a food trigger, but a totally new unrelenting painful cramp that feels completely different from those I associate with digestion problems.
There is some speculation from my family doctor that it might be endometriosis or something having to do with the female plumbing.
