Has anyone had significant improvement with changing their diet? I don't have any tummy issues, but changing my diet is the one thing I haven't tried. I've asked a few doctors and they hadn't really seen any huge improvement with their patients.
Absolutely when you suffer fibromyalgia the diet is something you need to change, no potatoes😒 or legumes, read all the labels is a must and more with the migraine, no soy salsa, no Chocolat, no proceses meats age chess, for me make a big diferents👍
My complete diet change has really decreased my fibromyalgia pain.
I have found a major change in my illnesses. For FMS, I haves stopped all caffeine products. I also pretty much stopped as much sugar as possible. You can't escape 100%. But the difference has made a huge impact on my body. I also gave up wine. I loved trying wines and learning all about where they came from, soil and countries. I would love to be a sommelier, but wine has sugar, and tannins causing me flushing. On very few occasions I will indulge in a small amount with lots of ice cold water. Fried foods, meat, and dairy. I substitute turkey for meat and Almond Milk for Whole Milk. It took me too long to make these changes, but I am glad I finally did. Best of luck!
After my Esophagectomy, I could not eat bread. My fibro pain eased up tremendously.
I changed to gluten free, lactose free and low sugar low carb. Helps me to stop having IBS and serious cramps. I confirmed I m gluten intolerance now.
“The Whole 30” diet was recommended. Basicly you are on a very strict diet for only 30 days. Your totally eliminate processed fods. Especially sugar. It wasn’t that difficult and the book is humorus.
It is not meant for weightloss, but it is a buy product.
I felt so good, I forgot I had fibromyalgia. Not even the weather change could make me hurt.
I ran into some health problems and a back surgery. Lost track and focus on this program. And I am wondering why I feel like crap. DUH!!
Thank you for the reminder. Off to the store to stock up on healthy foods.
Yes! When I eat processed foods too often I have severe joint pain and my energy level drops. I have found a holistic anti-inflammatory diet is my best option. I also am eliminating foods for two or three weeks then adding them back to judge my reaction. This helps me pinpoint the problem foods.
It has helped me tremendously! Read my story and see how I became a team member in my doctor's treatment by educationg myself. Good luck!
I have also changed my diet. I have eliminated sugar and I eat more whole grain. Because of irritable bowel I am very limited with my diet. I do feel better overall, but I haven't noticed a difference where pain is concerned.
