The Crow's Gym Thoughts: Vol. 199

Crow's #Gym Vol. 199
Eating right isn't always as easy as reading a book and following along. Some foods interact with people differently than others. I envy the people that can eat soy for example, I mean they put it in everything, and if you are like me it will give you two days of stomach trouble if you don't avoid it. Some foods don't exactly make you feel sick, they just don't like to play nice with your body. Every strange diet you read about out there is another opportunity to try something new that may or may not help you out. I had to try several dozen ways of eating until I figured out exactly what agreed with me, and made my metabolism work for me. Don't give up, just keep trying!
