What Kind Of Diet Has Helped You?

What Kind Of Diet Has Helped You?

I know I don't eat the best and that really needs to change. I was wondering what kind of diet or foods has made your fibromyalgia better or worse? All opinions, comments, and references/links are welcome. The more info the better. Thank you.

Soda is a no no for me, causes my legs and ankles to swell, my fibromyalgia goes crazy after I drink most soda's, dairy is another part in the diet that can cause some flare ups, but it is hard because I am one of those person's to eat my nightly bowls of ice cream, I don't drink regular milk though, everything is lacto free, I find it helps even with the inner problems of fibro and flares. Everyone is different, but when I eat less breads, dairy or carbed drinks, seems to help in the day. I bake most of our dinners now, I don't fry much of anything anymore, just for breakfast, the potatoes and eggs, but everything else is in the crockpot or in the oven... hope this helps a little

It helped me to start with an elimination diet and then slowly reintroduce foods to really be able to listen to my body and learn which ones made me feel good and which did not.

Hi, I’ve always been a non-meat eater (I eat fish), but following a period of really severe IBS and other associated flare-up issues, I’ve cut out gluten, refined sugar and nightshade vegetables. All can trigger an inflammatory response and I’ve noticed a big difference cutting them out.

I have multiple conditions that the diets all contradict each other. But I will say cooking homemade meals is best. We don't eat fast food and buy fresh produce from the farmers market. We eat a lot of fish, quinoa ,rice beans and stay away from instant meals. It seems to keep me good if I eat too much sugar I feel worse but otherwise sticking to all the food groups and cooking healthy with olive oil instead of other oils is good too. We don't eat much meat but when we do I make chicken breasts or thighs. Or hand made burgers or tacos
