hi,

I lost like 8 pounds (and I was just 112 pounds before Lyme). During my treatment I gained back. I ate a lot of sanwiches with peanutbutter...

Lyme causes cachexia which is weight loss due to lack of absorbtion of nutrition. Lyme has many gastrointestinal manifestations which cause the body to not absorb food, so you lose weight. I dropped 25 pounds in 5 weeks when I first got sick and gained it all back once I got on treatment. The truth is though that I needed to lose 15 of it anyways:) So now I am in the best shape of my life except for the darn lyme.  I had to go on a low carb diet, but still fixed my system through treatment to at least absorb what I have been eating.

I first put weight on about 20lbs - and then I lost 60 lbs ( and all my hair) prior to diagnosis : I am now back to my normal weight ( I am 5'8" and 130lbs) . Nuts were my saving grace !!! I consumed handfuls a day - even when I felt I couldn't eat anything I could manage almond butter in a smoothie. Hope this helps !

( NB Whole nuts are better , obviously without salt. Nut halves or pieces can harbor fungi and yeasts )
