Blog Email Spam, Are You Getting This One?

"explanation of your comment on blogspot." I get that from different names several times a day. I've never opened one but it must have a link in it to be sent to the spam folder. Why this question?

In other news, I started doing an elimination diet last Sunday after another week of migranes. Actually, it's the BRAT diet. I didn't have any bread when I started it, and I try to avoid yeast and sugar, so skipped that one for awhile. However, I made a stew for Hubby and then made biscuits to go with it, so I decided to toast a couple for me. The next day I had a mild headache. Bummer. But hopefully it was a coincidence. Even though I often eat paleo, I love bread and can't imagine never being able to eat anything with wheat in it again. I'll give it a few more days and try it again.

Just a few weeks ago, after cooking for hours and then facing the cleanup of lots of dishes, I whined to Hubby that it sure would be easier if there was people chow like there is dog chow and cat chow. But after being on this diet for a week, I've changed my mind. On the upside, I have lost some weight.

I hope you can find the culprit for your headaches and avoid the culprit who sends the emails. I would miss bread terribly: I love it!

Hello Marti...I came across your most delightful blog and insights and concluded I LIKE YOU....I GET YOU...and you are wayyy funny.....and yes if you are feeing headaches after eating breads....especially in an elimination diet..it really is a side effect of the elimination.....I am a Registered Nutritionist ..very few people have wheat allergies..it is more the sugar in stuff they are having effects too.....and do not open those emails they are virus and trojans that affect your pc or macs... will drop by again soon

I'm glad you decided against the people chow!!! Hope those Headaches go away. I had a daily headache for a year that started with a sinus infection., got another sinus infection, took the antiobiotics for 10 days and the headaches are completely gone!! I think I had an infection that whole time. Too weird!!!
I get some strange comments on my blog too, I just delete them.
Take care!!!

Thank you. I wish I could say for sure it was a side effect of the diet, but I think I'm going to go for a gluten test to make sure. I know sugar causes problems for me. I think it's sugar, not money, that is the root of all evil. Then money.

The weird thing is that they don't come through my blog at all. They go straight to my email. But yes, I have the same policy as on my blog; I just delete them.

That seems like a really weird spam message, but I've seen a few weird ones lately.

Hope you've worked out what's causing those headaches.
