Has anyone adopted a raw diet to relieve their FMS?

Lyrica is about null for me now, and starting to make me feel weird. I'm thinking of stopping it altogether. Curious if anyone has heard of the research supporting a raw diet for FMS? And tried it?

I've heard of this diet but it wouldn't work for me with all my tummy problems, I wouldn't be able to digest all the raw fruits and veggies. It would be healthy if you added lean meats, cooked of course.

Thanks all.

I think adding lean cooked meat such as chicken is good. I know when I ate salad every day for lunch I felt so much better overall. I am considering trying a plan I found for a week of raw diet, and adding a bit of chicken for protein, to see how I feel on it. I figure a week can't hurt overall and if it works, then I can continue.

Research has shown overall people benefit from raw, whole foods rather than cooked, processed, and refined.

i did try the raw diet about 6 years worked pretyy well....i had more energy and less pain....i was only eating 75% raw tho.....and doing fresh juice twice a day.....

the big problem i had on it was that i lost way too much weight.....i went from 120 down to 100 and i'm 5'6" family was really concerned.....maybe i should go back on it now idea since i still have 40 extra pregnancy pounds....

also, my face broke out like crazy....i had the worst acne....i suppose its because the diet cleanses toxins thru your skin....

a suggestion- many people find that just juicing helps tremendously for many ailment....fresh carrot/veggie/fruit juices twice a day can do wonders...too bad my juicer is broken sad
