now that I am back, I want to start the stricter diet… haven’t been on a real strict diet for ages and I want to get the levels down under 10 mg / dl plus I also want to prepare for a possible pregnancy within the next few years so I guess this would be a good thing to get used to the whole weighting and counting thing again 😀
I’m going to prepare some recipes for next week to make it easier. I’m not exactly sure to which phe amount I want to stick to. Maybe I’ll give a start with 700 mg / day and see where levels go after 4 weeks. Some of you might now wonder what I did all the time 😉 Well I had a loose diet, I mostly ate veggies and low protein bread, noodles etc but I wasn’t too strict about veggies at all (I didn’t weight potatoes or peas, rice etc which are actually high in protein, I know..) So we’ll see where it leads me.
I really hope I can pull through because I am not really used to this strict thing anymore. Any tips from your side?
I heard about this PKU app for android but I don’t get along well with that. Not the right thing for me and this one seems to be the only app for android and PKU diet so far. (Cambrook App unfortunately does not work for android..) I decided to do it the old fashioned way 😉 I will buy a beautiful nice notebook (it has to be a real blast so I don’t forget about writing everything down)…
My plan is to start from today… so I’ll keep you updated how it works for me. Any tips or motivation is highly appreciated..
You can either leave a comment below or write me a message over Facebook (my name is Katie Treasurechest).
Have a great day…
