A change in Diet can Change Everything!!

The last few months I have done an overhaul of my diet. I have always had stomach issues and have constantly been in pain šŸ˜¦ I would eat foods and then feel sick after or I would randomly just get a really bad stomach ache.
It took years before I was diagnosed with Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Lactose Intolerance. This meant that I had to be more careful about what I ate and had to start taking a probiotic to help my stomach.
Whilst on the tablets I was able to settle my stomach and was able to eat most things without having an upset stomach and thought I was doing pretty good!!
It has only been recently since I have realized this, but I have not actually taken any of my probiotic tablets for about 2 months now and my stomach has been rather good.
I put this down to the changes in my diet and my exercise routine.
Let me start with the exercise, I have been doing boot camp twice a week for the last 6 weeks and have started soccer training the last 2 weeks so now that is 4 times a week that I will exercise plus any little workouts I do at home.
Now the diet, I have stopped having toast for breakfast and changed to rice crackers with cheese and turkey and a strawberry smoothy, for lunch I am having chicken with couscous salad and for dinner either steak or something like that. I have cut out most sweets and am drinking more water.
All this I believe has equaled to my stomach settling down and being less painful for me. I have found that I have more energy and are happier with myself and my body. Even when I wasn’t exercising too much I still noticed a difference in my body.
I believe I have found a lifestyle that suits me and I hope I will be able to maintain this fitter healthier me!
