Do You Follow What The Doctor Says Regarding Your Nutrition Or Do What You Think Is Best?

Do You Follow What The Doctor Says Regarding Your Nutrition Or Do What You Think Is Best?

If you changed your diet recently and we're doing better, but still needed to improve your health, then saw a doctor who recommended a diet that was basically the complete opposite of what you were doing what would you do?

I find that I eat awful
going to bed at 4 am because in pain no sleep not good for digestion
exercise would help but no energy
I listen and do my best
I think , my opinion before a Dr etc can say anything about eating properly the Dr needs to address pain and sleep

Dr needs to know some pills cause great weight gain switch of better pills and one might be able to eat healthier

A plan to pace when exercising have someone tell us how to properly pace with fybromyalgia

If I have good things in the fridge as yoguart, fruit etc I will eat it

I educate myself about the specific nutritional needs, listen to the doctor’s recommendation then eat the way I find the most beneficial and most follow able way. You can and should tailor your diet to your specific needs and choices, so you will be able to stick with it. Not easy at all.

@A MyFibroTeam Member There are so many cookbooks available for those of us with digestive issues. And the major diet that I am finding that is good for Fibromyalgia and Digestive issues is the Paleo diet which is 0 grain

Even though I should know better because I am a retired R.N. , I have a lousy diet. I have multiple GI issues and have seen a couple of nutritionists. I am waiting now for a appt. ( It has been awhile since I have been seen. ) I would listen to my doctor because she is great and truly understands me , but might treat it , but I would tell her if I did!
