I've been eating dairy-free since August 17!
My functional medicine doctor, Dr. Allison Blessing, recommended that I cut out dairy to balance out my hormones. I also went off my birth control because there's no way I could balance my hormones while on birth control. (read more about it here)
So far, I've felt amazing. Within the first couple of weeks, I noticed that I looked a bit slimmer. I was most likely experiencing some bloating from the inflammation that dairy was causing. Best of all, I haven't had any hormonal migraines!
I'm feeling really optimistic about my journey so far. Later, I'll share more about how a hormone imbalance can impact your health, but today I wanted to share what I've been eating.
