I’m still reading a bunch about autoimmune paleo, gut health, cortisol, etc. but not yet doing anything about it. I’m prone to anxiety and have asthma, so the idea that I might be able to improve these conditions with diet is seductive. (I take inhaled corticosteroids – cortisol – for my asthma.)

I did some googling about cortisol and diet and found a lot of information I consider unreliable. This study, though, was interesting. I hate tracking food so it’s great to have an excuse not to do it. (Remembering that I’m very fortunate at 5’8″ tall and 210-215 lbs with normal blood sugar and blood pressure whether or not I lose any additional weight is more a question of vanity than anything else.)
