mmontel - July 14

I know what you shouldn't eat which is aspartame in foods. Limited caffeine, can't go wrong with fruits and vegetables. Red meat is hard on the system.

 

axxie - February 11

No caffeine, no soda pop, no chocolate, no aspartame in anything, no red meat, no potatoes, no pasta, no white bread, no butter, no milk, one egg every two weeks. No frozen foods, no sauces, no wine, liquor. No smoking, no red dies, no rice, no fast food, no cheeze, no diet soda. Chicken ok as long as it's a small portion, no strong herbes, no salt (this is a big no no). Eat fruits but keep to a bare minimum the grapefruits and orange juice. Salads ok, but not the process sauce. Drink loads of water, minimum on BBQ and smoke meats or processed luncheon meats. It's hard, but what a difference after only three days.

I have found a ton of lists of what NOT to eat.. does anyone have a list of the foods we CAN eat?

After reading the NO's... it makes me feel like just not ever eating.

Why bother?

Just cut an pasted the following from a
there is no specific diet plan to treat fibromyalgia. Comparatively few diet studies have been undertaken to assess the impact of food on fibromyalgia, and there is no clear evidence indicating that any specific foods improve this complex syndrome. Also, there is no clear medical evidence that dietary supplements improve symptoms. Indeed, blood and hair tests have revealed no pattern of mineral deficiency in fibromyalgia patients. Thus it is misleading to say there is an effective diet to reduce the symptoms of fibromyalgia

I feel your pain! There are a zillion things out there that tell us what we shouldn't eat, but where is a suggested list of things TO EAT? I have threatened more than once just to eat baby food and forget about the other. Everything seems to go right through me and I still can't take off the 30lbs that I gained before I was diagnosed. The link that little gave is a front for a supplement website, not an answer at all. I will keep looking, but it would be nice if some of you "veterans" could share some kind of outline of a diet.

I got this from another forum I am in.....


IF YOU ARE MOTIVATED, IT IS THE EASIEST DIET IN THE WORLD. THE RESULTS ARE EVIDENT IN A VERY SHORT TIME.


THERE ARE CERTAIN THINGS THAT YOU MUST EAT OR AVOID AND CERTAIN THINGS THAT ARE RECOMMENDED

BEAR IN MIND THAT NO ONE IS EVER ABLE TO STICK TO THESE RESTRICTIONS COMPLETELY OR FOREVER...THE DIET IS A LIFESTYLE CHANGE AND THEREFORE, IT IS EXPECTED THAT YOU WILL CHEAT FROM TIME TO TIME.


ONCE YOUR SYSTEM IS CLEANSES OF MANY OF THE TOXINS WE CARRY AROUND WITH US, YOU WILL KNOW IMMEDIATELY AFTER EATING SOMETHING, IF IT IS GOOD FOR YOU OR BAD FOR YOU. YOU WILL FEEL SLUGGISH OR BLOATED WHEN SOMETHING IS BAD FOR YOU. YOU WILL ACTUALLY FEEL LIGHTER AND IN HARMONY WHEN SOMETHING IS GOOD FOR YOU.
