Sorry it too me so long to reply. I read your first thread, and was happy, but your second one wasn't so good. I'm sorry that you're feeling bad. How long are you allowed to be on prednisone?
Diets are a big thing. But you don't have to read the book. The diet in there is basic, and fits anyones lifestyle (if you want it)
Basically, you cannot take in any caffine, sugar (to certain extend. Meaning if something has 2g-5g of sugar, that's ok, but no candy, icecream) or white flour products.
Fruit, veggies, whole grains (oats, brown rice, 100% wheat bread), healthy fats (olive oils, nuts, all natural PB) and healthy proteins (eggs, red meat, fish, chicken)
I've found that exercising in the morning is great for me. I try to do crunches in the evening if I have the energy, but I'm at my lowest then.
You do not have to thank me :) I'm happy to give out anything that I've learned and read. Whether it's linked to CFS or not, it's still sucks ;)
Take care HM!!! I hope you feel better, and have a great and restfull weekend!
