Food Diary: Wednesday, August 3


This is the second tea-free day of my "GERD elimination test."  Is that why I am so tired?  I fell asleep at my desk both days.  Is it the lack of tea that's causing my narcolepsy?  A few times, I also felt unable to mentally "get with it."  I knew if I had some tea, the afternoon would go more smoothly.  As for how this is making my guts feel, I have to admit I feel less "gerdy."  No belching, no regurgitation, nothing.   Note that I am still having chocolate (bar and brownies).

I've decided to omit my bathroom goings-on in this blog, which will already be full of gratuitous information about my guts.   However, take note:  anyone interested in improving their GI issues -- or their health, in general -- should track how their intestines are functioning.   For Android phones, I recommend the PoopLog.  (iPhone users -- any suggestions?)
