I developed the habit of asking myself, “Will my immune system thank me for eating this?” In the beginning, frequently, the answer was no. I began to eat more foods that were rich in nutrients and which could build up the strength of my immune system and less of the foods that were full of empty calories and unpronounceable ingredient lists.
We have learned that some patients who are diagnosed with ME/CFS are actually suffering from severe food allergies. And more and more people are restricting their diets by eliminating one or more common ingredients. Organic, Gluten-free, refined sugar-free and other dietary restrictions are more common and the anecdotal evidence is showing that, for some, these dietary adjustments can generate a noticeable improvement in an individuals health.
For me, eating positive foods and avoiding the negative paid off. How have you adjusted your eating habits? What strategies are working for you? Please COMMENT or Send in your thoughts and I’ll post them. You can use the Contact Form or send an email to Martha at DefeatCFS dot net.
