We are slowly adding food back into my diet, and so far so good. I have successfully added sugar, red meat and wheat back in for the last few days and so far the pain has not returned. I am hoping the pounds don't return as well. I have lost about 15 in the past 2 weeks!
If you ask me, I think that the cause of the pain is the increase in processed foods, so once I am back in Italy life should be back to normal. Not to say I am totally pain free in Italy, but it is drastically better than here.
