    You don't go easy on the red meats? Ah, ok ... that would be the Paleo component but it's supposed to be organic and/or grass fed. Which is pretty expensive. I went back to putting 2% milk in my coffee with some sugar-free coffee mate. I didn't like cashew milk nor almond/coconut milk ... yuck.

    For 2 weeks I've avoided all cheese/red meat/processed foods/cold cuts/sweets and faithfully logged every morsel of food that I've eaten. Been averaging 1,300/day and I've lost a whopping ... 1lb...!?!

    Oh, my pancreas is fine now, thanks for asking!

    Went to a gastro doctor - he said my amalyse was a bit high but not nearly enough to warrant that diagnosis. And have not had any stomach pain - except when I ate a Morning Star bean burger, of all things. Looking at the ingredients, it's a highly processed food.

    I have found that by avoiding cheese, my migraines (and headaches in general) have subsided. Except for that storm that came in the other day - cuz barometric pressure changes also trigger my headaches.
