My doc did not take me off fruit.
I went off sugar, corn syrup, molasses, soda, juice (unless made in a blender with the whole fruit in it). I stayed away from all baked goods. I lost weight, but it was tough. I lost my temper over the smallest things. My kids said I was really cranky and tired to avoid me. It's really hard, when you know you are not being reasonable but you can't seem to help yourself. I kept doing things and then apologizing, It took 2 weeks before I came out of it.
My family and I have been enjoying my life without dairy gluten and soy for many years.
Found out about it in spring of 2009 that I have been living with Lyme for over 8 years. My symptoms of Lyme have been Mini-Strokes/TIA's, Hashimoto's disease, swelling of my liver and kidneys. Anaphylactic reactions to raw apples, raw carrots, and Beef. Allergies to dairy, gluten, and Soy.
