Part one of “Dan As My Caretaker” series focuses on when and how Dan, my husband, became my caretaker.
Due to life and my various chronic illnesses, we were forced to make some modifications to my LEAP diet program! Luckily, it’s a change for the easier, not for the harder.
I combined weeks 3 and 4 of my LEAP/MRT diet because I didn’t log much due to a massive flare of one of my conditions. However, there are still quite a few meal logs in this post!
This last month has been such a blur for me. My health decided to skydive, without a parachute, and it hit the ground hard.

I started the diet on Tuesday, the 28th; starting phase 1/2 as directed by my dietitian. However, since starting, I have felt horrendously ill. I’m not sure why exactly that is, and there are many potential reasons…
Some of my LEAP results weren’t surprising, some were extremely surprising, and some were plain ol’ disappointing. However, this diet should really help my overall health! For details, read the full post.
