Adeno/Endo Diet: One Year Assessment

It has been a year since I decided to eat clean as part of my efforts healing from Adenomyosis. I keep records of my food intakes but never really make assessments whether I follow Endo Diet properly.

Couple days ago I had a chat with my doctor regarding my current condition. My pain has been lessened (which is great!), but she seemed concerned about my diet. She keeps telling me “Please take care of your diet”. She said that because she knows how awful my diet these last few months. So I decided to check whether I was that bad 🙄

I tracked back my diet from Dec 2016 to Dec 2017. The assessment based on these criteria:

NO” Food: food that I shouldn’t eat, such as non-organic meats and eggs, dairy, soy products, sugary food, fried food, food that contains gluten (wheat, barley, bulgur, mir, rye, seitan), processed food, bad oils, spicy food, and coffee.

” ” Food: non-plants food that gives me no harms, such as organic eggs and salmons.

The last one year, I always thought that consuming whole-wheat products won’t give my body any bad effects because my doctor told me I can eat whole-wheat product in moderation. But finally, in my last period,  I noticed how bloated I was after I ate a whole-wheat bread. I decided to try to eliminate wheat from my diet completely.

In this assessment, I included wheat as part of my NO food. And to be honest, I feel disappointed with my assessment results😞 You will understand why after you see these pictures…

Dec 2016 As you can see, lots of NO-NOs there which relate to lots of pains 😓 What I’ve done? Why did I torture my self? 😭

I’m trying to do better this month…

Every day is a battle for me… but as I said, I might be crawling, but I will keep going!

Beat The Pain Project


As I mentioned a couple days ago, my pain has gotten worse for some reasons. I dunno what’s the real problem, but I will try to fix this. I have been so inconsistent these last couple months, and I need to get my ass back together.

So, here’s the daily checklist I must fulfill:

  • Yoga/walking/jogging
  • Take multivitamins, fish oil, turmeric ginger capsule (for boosting immune system and anti-inflammatory)
  • Take vitamin D and probiotics supplements once in 2 days
  • Take Ayurvedic medicine or 2 cups of coriander decoction per day when I ran out med
  • Follow Endo diet (I need to mention if I cheated – consumed the NO2 food or drinks AND/OR if I consumed the red alerts food – food that causes discomfort on my period days, i.e: wheat (causes bloating))
  • Drink lemon/lime water in the morning (for liver detox)
  • Drink at least 2L of water a day
  • Eat papayas/pomegranates/guavas and/or other fruits (anti-inflammatory)
  • Be relax, avoid any stresses (stress can affect our immune system)

Total: 8/9 points (depends on whether it’s D+probiotics days or not)

Optional:

  • Drink green tea and/or cinnamon
  • Drink roasted dandelion detox tea
  • Drink raspberry leaves tea
  • Drink any healthy herbal teas / fresh juice
  • IF / water fasting twice a week

Okay, that’s the list for now. I will try to keep on track for one month and see the result. I will start tomorrow and post my daily achievement here so I can feel more motivated. Wish me luck! 💪🏻😍

Eating Clean: Day 14

Breakfast : strawberries, kiwis, apples, and mix nuts.


I missed my lunch. I only ate a cup of mix nuts.


I had a big dinner. Me and my husband went to our favorite Indian restaurant. The food was fantastic!


Pain checker day -2 of the projected period:

No pain.

Today on my last period I had slight cramps (2/10), 1 ibuprofen was taken.

Eating Clean: Day 13

I had a late breakfast, around 11 am. I woke up quite early but I felt tired because I woke up several time the night before. So I decided to take a nap to regain my energy. 

I had papayas, strawberries, fava beans, almonds, and cashews for breakfast. Nuts and beans really help to make me feel stuffed.


For lunch I had 麻辣汤 (Malatang: spicy soup). I didn’t expect the restaurant to gave me that much chili oil because I ordered the mild broth, I ended up do not drink the soup 😓

So what’s in my soup? There are cauliflowers, napa cabbages, black mushrooms, seaweeds, rice noodles, and quail eggs. I didn’t eat the quail eggs, I forgot that I shouldn’t order it because it’s almost my period time, it’s better to avoid anything from animals including eggs.


I had a late lunch, around 3:30pm. By the dinner time, I didn’t really feel hungry. So I just eat seamed organic rice, steamed cauliflowers, and steamed pineapple.

Around 9pm I started eat mix nuts again 😆

Pain checker of day -3 of the projected period:

No pain at all, my mood was good 😊 I still have a little cold symptom, but I think it’s going away. 

The same day last period I did 24 hours water fasting to relieve my back pain and lower abdomen discomfort.
