Diet

Oct 05, 2015 8:11 AM

I have been doing some research in regards to diet and Fibromylgia and I am not sure what is best? What to cut out and what things to eat? There is evidence to show having an alkaline diet and does that mean giving up all types of meat ? I would love to know if diet has helped anyone manage their pain? Thanks for your help in advance ..

ThePeacefulWarrior, Welcome! I tried the gluten free diet but it was hard to do with my hubby not willing to eat that way (only non supportive issue). I now just try to avoid artificial sweeteners, eating fresh fruits and veggies. And I eat smaller portions trying to lose weight. Being leads mobile I'm gaining far and losing muscle. Good luck! 🙏🌼

Thank you for that. I have been on a restricted diet for nearly 2 months, no gluten, dairy, eggs, sugar ... I even limit fruits. I do have lots of vegetables and meat just don't know if maybe too much meat isn't good. I know I shouldn't be stressing over food I just don't find anything helps and feel that my pain gets worse everyday and the pain in certain areas gets more intense. I worry for the day that I can't do a thing :(

ThePeacefulWarrior, one thing that many of us (especially myself) has to remember that most folks get stressed when they can't control a situation. The reality is, we don't have control over anything, just the ability to try to make the best decisions on how to remedy a situation when it happens. The past is over, the future is a mystery to us all. The only thing we can do is decide how we are going to remedy or deal with whatever is going on in the moment you're in. There are just too many variables to be able to figure out how you'll deal with something as close as 6 months away. All of these variables come from how we handle what we are dealing with right now. Keep your chin up, be well versed in the illnesses with which you have been diagnosed and be your own advocate!! You know your own body better than anyone else. Know that we here in the community are here for you when you need us. You're never alone and will always find someone here ready and willing to help. I'm sending you {{{{Hugs}}}} and a shoulder to lean on (just not too hard because they hurt really bad lately. I hope this post makes sense because dim not feeling well and am foggy today. (I've read it 4x and I'm fairly certain that I answered your post in a way that is helpful.(?) I will keep you in my prayers.😊🙏🏻🌻

My husband and I started the keto diet. I felt so much better I knew there had to be more. So I asked my Dr. To run a food allergy panel blood test. A PAGE of allergies came back. I felt so much better because I had cut out 80% of what I was allergic to. I would suggest talking with your Dr about the right diet for you.
