thanks for the reply,
I don't take any long term meds either, i take solpadeine when it's really bad and diazepam for nerve pain when it gets too much, but very rarely. I find swimming relieves a multitude of symptoms, even if it is just short term. I found the side effects too much.
I'm going to cut out sugar for a while. I did a meal replacement programme before as i was 210 lbs(15stone), at 5'2'' you can imagine what i was like. I'm back up to 155 now so need to nip it in the butt, literally.
When i did the meal replacement it was very hard but i found it great, i don't think i could face it again tho, i think i'ii just cut out 2 meals a day for a while. even at that i still only loose about 1-2 lbs a week.
At least i'm aware the effect excess weight has on me anyway so it's an incentive to keep going.
Take care all, boo
good to hear from you.
Is it just the sugar in processed and junk food i need avoid. I know i cany eat buckets of fruit.
Will it have the same effect as eating refined sugars. I have really high cholesterol and the doc thinks i have type 1 diabetes(non insulin, i assume). I think my diet is just rubbish tho.
My mother and grandmother both have/had it too and developed the insulin dependant one but i think if i watch myself now, weight/cholesterol, i'ii be fine.
There's a lot of conflicting advice on diet. I've lost my way a bit and have succumbed to rubbish foods i know are bad for me. I've just joined a weight loss group to help tho.
Yeah.....anyway....original question, is natural sugar ok and is pasta evil, because i can live without that. But, i'm not to have too much fat coz of the cholesterol........oh dear......you see my confusion!!!!!! Now add a large dose of fibro fog, i've been to dieticains but come back more confused.
