Making some huge changes to my lifestyle change plan this coming week… So I’ve been doing a lot of reading about a “fibromyalgia diet" since yesterday and am discovering some interesting things.
Apparently gluten sensitivity can lead to major fibro pain. I know I felt amazing when I was doing keto and my fibro pain went away almost completely. I felt the best I had in my life then and was working out 2.5 hours a day six days a week.
Now, I can't go back to keto for medical reasons but what if it wasn't the keto portion that was getting rid of my fibro pain but was the gluten and simple white processed carb removal instead? I wasn't eating white flour or processed carbs and was eating almost no sugar or sugary foods and I felt amazing. Maybe that's what I need just without the super low carb and super high fat intake?
One of the ways to do that is the Mediterranean diet which Charles has wanted to do for a long time now (he needs to change his diet too due to rising cholesterol and other issues).
It will suck changing how I'm eating because I finally got to a place where I don't binge because everything is allowed in moderation but I'm also eating a ton of crap and changing up what and how I eat would probably kick the weight loss back into high gear as well.
And maybe if I change it from "oh no, I can't have this" to "I can have this but I'm choosing not to to feel better" would make a difference?
Plus I really liked almond flour foods and recipes I used to make, I just need to lower the fat content from the old recipes.
This is going to be a huge change for me but I think this be great in the long run. And when we do have off plan things sometimes I’m going to focus on a little of something of quality vs quantity of something mediocre.
So if anyone has any ideas or experience to toss my way feel free! I’m always open to learning something new!
