I find when i hurt more i eat more, might be an emotional thing or maybe since being in pain drains energy my body is looking for fuel. Lack of sleep affects self control so we go to the bad and easy foods like chips and cookies or candy. Its been proven that lack of sleep (the study was shift workers but it can be applied to us) is related to increased food consumption and poor food choices. Very normal I'd say
I was reading on some clinical trial website that if you have fibro you need to drop an extra 500- 800 Cal's a day on top of any weight loss suggestion as our metabolism and ability to use energy is completely different, that on top of being even more difficult if over 40yrs plus if on pregabalin as that drug alone makes your appetite increase how fab eh
Well what happened was I had put my body into starvation mode. Which memt it thought it was a famine and was storing all the fat in the foods. I had stopped getting hungry at all. Which only made it worse. So I had to go back on a scheduled eating program had to eat evey two hours a protien and a carb this took a year to rest my body I lost the weight I gained and was back on the right road but then life happened and ended up going back into starvation mode again but on top of it I had stress. So that's when my eating and weight yoyo struggle began. Then fibromayalgia happened.
