Fibromyalgia diet atkins

Common Questions and Answers about Fibromyalgia diet atkins


Avatar n tn I followed the protocol in KT's book and began my diet on the third day but Dr. Simmeon's protocol says to gorge for 3 days and then begin the diet. I don't know why there is a day difference in the protocols. Also I noticed that DR. Simmeon says to eat white fish but in KT's book he is specific about the white fish being halibut, Chilean sea bass, flounder or sole. Is anyone following just Dr. Simmeon's protocol and if so are you eating other white fish like orange roughy or tilapia?
1337132 tn?1275770565 How do you feel about an Atkins type diet? Just eat protein, fat, veggies and some fruit. See how you feel in a few weeks. Look up copper/zinc problems. Do you have zinc spots on your nails (white spots)? Too little zinc in that case. Look up copper toxicity. Sometimes it gets stored in the body, but can't circulate or be eliminated normally. Too much estrogen means too much copper and too little zinc. Zinc and copper are on a seesaw together.
Avatar f tn // Paleo Diet The Peak 8 routine it will quickly raise your heart rate 8 times for very short bursts, with a cooling down period in between. Ideally you’ll be sprinting or cycling full throttle for 30 seconds with a 90 second cool down in between each outburst. This is the fastest way to lose fat and build muscle in the body. Peak 8 actually stimulates the growth hormone in the body.
Avatar n tn If you have unexplained aches, pains, headaches, joint weakness, rashes, abdominal swelling, upset stomach, blurred vision, dizziness, etc, examine your diet carefully. If you've made changes to it recently, or begun a sugar free diet, please read the ingredients in everything carefully. Know that even medications and supplements are using sucralose. And complain to the FDA. They were swayed by the lobbyists for the big manufacturer Johnson and Johnson.

CVD is virtually unheard of in individuals with total cholesterol < 150 and strict vegetarians have 80% less chance of developing heart attack or stroke.
1618577 tn?1388803044 Recently, I was curious about the medicinal qualities of arugula. I've had to be on an anti-Candida diet, which is stricter than any Atkins diet and totally gluten free, because there are no carbohydrates allowed while killing the Candida overgrowth. It's also dairy free, because there are natural sugars in the milk and milk products. Cheese is obvious, since mold and yeast are similar biologically. All fermented products are out, too.
Avatar n tn As far as diet I have discovered that if I eliminate dairy products and carbohydrates the pain mysteriously goes away after a few days, and stays away as long as I stick with this Atkins type diet. Last week September 2017, my PCP did a A1c blood test on me and it shows I am pre-diabetic. I had been on the very low carbohydrate diet for about 2 months prior. Now for the past 2 weeks I&#39;ve been back to eating everything and the burning pain is back. It is 2:30am and I can&#39;t sleep.
Avatar n tn stomach problems. I eat a alot of salt, I was on the atkins diet so I ate a ton of protein. Im a lil worried. Now no one wants to talk about what I'm about to write, but I would think about it seriously! I used to live in a Federal Toxic Wast Site called a Superfund Site and of course we saw all sorts of Lupus, Chronic Fatique Syndrome, Scleroderma, Schogrens, Chronic Epstein Barr Virus, Cancer of all kinds, Fibromyalgia & other auto immune diseases etc...
Avatar n tn Now on a kind of healthy Atkins type diet(if there is such a thing)I eat mostly white meat,fish and green salad.(no tomatoes) I'm careful with tea and coffee and no sodas at all.oh yes I eat nothing with wheat!. chocolate is another no,no. Im going for an upper GI endoscope so will see what they find with me. Also losing weight helped me,but your weight is may want to try a whey protein supplement like "reflex pure whey",it always makes me feel good.
Avatar n tn Anyone though that has tried it, and honestly stuck to it, has lost weight. Lots of weight. I have lived a quasi Atkins diet now for the last 5 years and have been up and down depending on how serious I live the diet. Whenever I am serious about it, I lose weight. I don't care what any "Dr" or "study" says, the freakin diet works. I'm goin' on this and will keep you posted.
Avatar f tn My family doctor then sent me to a Rheumatoid specialist and he diagnosed me with fibromyalgia. The reason for the pain at night is because the Cymbalta is a time release. He then gave me something for night time. It literally knocks me out that I can't wake up in the morning so I only take it when the pain is really bad. During the same search for this problem we were looking at my colon, I was constantly constipated and very miserable as well.
Avatar n tn My advice to you is to get a high strength probiotic (20 billion+ per capsule) take a few per day and go on to an anti candida diet. The probiotic will compete with the candida, the diet will starve it. If this is the case he'll notice an improvement fairly soon.
649848 tn?1484935765 Per the formula, for men, every 10 pounds lost drops the actual metabolic rate by about 62 calories per day I also want to mention is that I have read that low carb diets, like the Atkins diet, will work for many people, but it is difficult to maintain the diet and also over time it actually seems to cause the body to increase the rate of conversion of T4 to Reverse T3. Obviously this is not a desirable result.
Avatar n tn The ER doc was very good. He suggested that I have Fibromyalgia and my pains are symptoms of this ellusive disease. It makes some sense because I did not have classic gallbladder symptoms like nausea. I have other symptoms which can be attributed to fibromyalgia - fatigue, insomnia, etc. This is thought to be a reumatoid type disease. I'm going to look into this some more and will let you all know what I find out.
Avatar n tn A very healthy diet for ANYONE (not just us diabetics) is the American Diabetes Association diet (which Atkins and South Beach are patterned after). The ADA diet is much healthier though. Here's the link: Next time you meet with your endocrinologist discuss your weight control problems and ask to be tested for hypo/hyperglycemia.
Avatar f tn I have tried The Zone, Atkins, Scarsdale, Optifast, Nutrisystems, Jenny Craig, Weight Watchers, etc., etc. I also went to a "fat farm" where you are dropped off at a rural camp and left there for several months without your car and they lock you up in your room and/or cabin and only feed you very small nutritiously balanced calorie restricted portions.
Avatar n tn In fact, she has been on the Atkins diet for 6 months and lost 20 lbs.. She is still on a maintence regimen of the Atkins with slightly higher carbs now. Prior to the weight loss, she had blood pressure readings of 150/100 and went on hydrodiuranol which give her regular readings now of 140/86. The pulse elevations begin just after she awakens in the a.m. when she also has her highest systolic readings at that time.

Avatar f tn I cant lose weight unless I stay on Atkins inductions diet (little choice, protein and cheese) I am going on 9 yrs of this. It seems that I am always sick and others can eat anything they want and I am stuck on the Atkins diet for 2 yrs now. I had a horrible yeast problem (non-vaginal) that seems under control now. Hey, thanks for letting me vent...
Avatar n tn My hubby and I both started the atkins diet about 4 weeks ago at which time I was already hurting badly in my back. I kid u not, I've lost close to 20 lbs which was mostly swelling but my back pain is at its worst. I know when u have CP, its suggested to stay on low fat, high carb diet but the atkins is the opposite. I feel so terrible and hurt like u wouldn't believe. I have quit the diet but have not started drinking the alcohol and won't.
Avatar n tn and try to avoid Sugar. Low Carb and Hi Protein - it almost sounds like the South Beach Diet or the Atkins Diet.
541465 tn?1219431486 My healthy weight has always fluctuated between 115 and 120. However, I gained 30 LBS!!! I could not believe it. I immediately went on a diet and noticed that the weight was ALOT harder to loose. (cuz of the methadone.) I've noticed that for the most part the weight gain has a harsher affect on women.
114809 tn?1449688596 If it would help you regarding info on the atkins diet i can fill you in on my husbands experiences with it, he lost 10 lbs in a week (but he was religious which you have to be) that was several years ago, he's put the weight back on because he went off it, but since then hes tried south beach with much success. So both diets do work.
Avatar n tn I've never meet a doctor who would be OK with ANYONE losing that much so fast! It is normal to loose 5-6lbs the 1st week on any new diet, b/c most people drink more water when starting a new diet, so they loose water weight! I hope you all can see why i think it is so silly to think that that pill of them all, is the reason why you're loosing weight!
Avatar n tn read the book with loss cure they dont want u to know about by kevin trudeau even though the hcg is the best option with a specific diet to go along with it, u can replace the hcg with another diet and it works just as fine and keeps u healthy and works just as fast.
Avatar n tn I didn't gain much weight but was younger and very active and watched my grams of fat or did Atkins diet during the injections That menopause was nothing compared to my total hysterectomy in '06! They thought I had ovarian cance as my uterus, bladder, ovaries and cervix were plastered together and attached to the peritenium. They didn't know until they got in and sent it to pathology, but Thank God it was not cancer. Six months prior to the Hyst.
Avatar n tn Granted, the 500 cal regime can make one very creative (or else!) and the following Phase 3 is so much like the Atkins diet, much of this sounds familiar to all of us. I admit that satisfied hcg users can become a bit "evangelical" in their zeal to educate the world, and to an empirical mind such as yours, Benny, can easily be aggravating. Use common sense, examine the data, and if you want, or need, try the plan yourself.
Avatar n tn Now if I have toast or a bagel with eggs or garlic I will be fine. I got it terribly once when I attempted the Atkins diet. NEVER AGAIN!!! The only thing that helps me is lessens the spasms..relaxes me and allows me to sleep. If I morning the pain will be gone but my side is so feels raw. I had a sonagram done of my gallbladder...and when they pressed on it I almost went through the roof...But they said it was fine.
