I used to be a normal kid, outdoorsy, confident, popular. Then on my 11th birthday I got what seemed to just be gastro. While the worst of it passed in a couple of days, I never really got better. Not only did I suffer from IBS, but my personality radically changed too. I was angsty, introverted, paranoid and I was sensitive to light, sound and touch. I had become autistic. I wouldn’t be diagnosed until I was 19 because I didn’t present any of the usual symptoms in early childhood. Now at 27 I have been doing OMAD carnivore for eight months, I initially switched to this WOE to help with ME/CFS and while it has minimised my pain and fatigue, what I didn’t expect was a cure for autism. I was so certain it was simply a part of me, that I was born this way and I would die this way. And maybe that’s true for some people, but I realise now that my autism and IBS were caused by diet. If only I had known about this sixteen years ago!
