Tummy troubles: real talk
My body type stores adipose tissue in my hips, booty and thighs more than around my waist.
That is not to say my composition is as lean as I would like. It does mean my tummy has more than just a layer of fat to make it look rounder.
As my fortune would have it, I have digestion issues. I am still recovering from the damage done by co-morbid conditions. One syndrome plus one disorder equals a tummy full of troubles. It reached the point of doctors telling me they did not know what to do for me.
It's been years of trial and error, but I have restored my innards to decent conditions. I still have trials and flare-ups of a syndrome. I still prefer loose-fitting clothes.
Starting today, I am tracking my nutrition. I stopped doing this years ago when my living conditions made food tracking difficult. I also had to stop myself from using my tracking results to feed my disorder.
Thus, with trepidation, I begin once more to quantify and - most importantly - to qualify my food.
