I'm Interested In Diet And Exercise Combinations For Fibromyalgia

Has anybody found a diet for fibro that helps?

Like, there are a bunch of diets out there (Paleo, low-carb, keto, etc) and I'm wondering if there's anybody out there who has found a diet that works and they can actually live with?

I've also seen quite a few posts about people who find exercise helps but there's never any detail. How long to exercise, what kind of intensity, and what kind of exercise?

I can say with 100% certainty that the keto diet works. I have never had such success with any one single thing that has kept me out of pain, besides acupuncture, then this way of eating. Also, limit coffee to one cup a day and little to no alcohol.
I don’t recommend this to everyone but I walk between three to five miles three times a week. I’m a road biker but my fibro likes a recumbent bike better. ( I learned wind is a bad trigger). Swimming is great with a hop in the hot tub after. I also weight train but listen to my body to tell me when it’s enough.
One thing that really helps is to get into a hot epsoms salts bath right after exercise. It will help ward off a flare.
It’s taken me a while to figure this all out but it was worth it. Not easy, but so worth it.

No gluten, no dairy and limit caffeine & sugar.
Yoga is manageable as well as light cardio and swimming.
You need to pace yourself and know when not to overdo it.
Warm water aerobics is what my dr recommended.
I also like sitting in the sauna after any exercise it’s so relaxing.

30 minutes of cardio 3 times a week,
Weight training also helps, you start off with a a light one and work your way up. Swimming for 20 min all average
