I posted this on another forum, and wanted to share it here as well...

If you have migraines, and made a new year resolution to eat better and/or get in shape, read on....

New Year, New Adventures...always a good time to reevaluate where I'm at and what I else I'm looking forward to in the future.  I think if it isn't number one, it is definitely HIGH on the list of common new year resolutions...and that of course is lose weight/eat better/get in shape.  I group them all together, because they're all related to each other.

I've been pretty lucky.  Almost two years ago I drastically changed my diet to restrict common migraine triggers.  My migraines decreased dramatically, and I eat really healthy due to it ( is amazing how much better you eat when you cook from scratch, but before changing diets to get pain relief I was a Pasta Roni queen VIEW IMAGE).

One of the biggest food triggers for migraines is MSG (monosodium glutamate).  Despite how common it is for MSG to cause migraines, few migraine sufferers are aware MSG could be the culprit behind the migraines.  I bring it up  now, because if you are one of the many people looking forward to losing weight and toning up this new year you are probably looking at some new foods to help you do that.  You may find yourself investing in sports drinks, protein shakes, protein bars, etc.  What you should know before buying (and ingesting) those items is that the majority of these contain MSG. 

Eating right and getting in shape are great goals! I'll admit the getting in shape goal is one of mine this new year.  If you have migraines, just make sure you're also an informed consumer as you work on eating better.  Your head will thank you, and you'll love being in less pain!


Sarah, I have edited your post to remove the link and would refer you to the Forum Rules in particular Rule 4.  Ann
