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!

BTPP Day 4


Day 4

Still not a perfect record. I didn’t fulfill 2L water per day target, I didn’t eat any fruits, and I ate wheat snacks 😫

The good news was I able to take a long walk without any pain, yay! 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽 I walked to Walmart for the first time in 3 weeks. Well, all of these painful days were my fault… I hurt my foot when I tried a new pair of boots, but instead of let it healed and took a rest, I ran for 5K 😬 I’m sorry foot, I should’ve listened to you!

Walk + Seafood Buffet = Awesome Day 


I walked a lot today. I walked from my apartment block to a supermarket downtown. It’s actually not too far, only about 1.5 km if I took a shorter way but I need to exercise so I took a longer way. It took 3.55 km to go there 😬I walked home from the supermarket but I didn’t turned on my walking tracker. 

My husband and I went to a seafood buffet for dinner. It was an all you can eat buffet and it had a various food sections. Sushi and sashimi sections, hot pot sections, western food sections, fried seafood sections, Chinese food sections, barbecue sections, fruits and drinks sections, desert sections, and a couple other sections that I don’t know what to call 😆 It’s so awesome! Here are some pictures from the restaurant.



I only ate vegetables, salmon, and pickled ginger, so I think I’m still on my Endo diet track 😜 After finished our dinner we walked home. So total I have walked 7.9km today. You did a good job today, me! 😆😆😆
