      Oh yes! I try to eat an anti-inflammatory diet. I have found that cutting out refined white flour Is especially helpful in reducing pain.

      I try to eat more protein in every meal and reduce simple carbs, especially sugar. I found out that this way I stay full for longer and don't have as many ups and downs in my hunger and my mood in general during the day. Also i think it reduced the number of pain attacks I get.

      I went vegan, then vegetarian, and now am pescatarian over the course of 9 months. I don’t eat red meat at all. I cut out soda, too. I have lost about 50 pounds from these dietary changes, and I don’t seem to have as many noticeable issues with my fibromyalgia. But I also think that different things work for different people. It is definitely very valuable to make changes in your diet slowly and then see how your body reacts to them. I was diagnosed with a fatty liver, and I was seriously scared, so that is what caused me to first make the changes, but they ended up benefiting me in a range of different ways!

      When I cut out milk, I feel so much better and have more energy. I try to stay away from heavy carbs and processed foods because they make me feel very yucky.

      I stopped eating food that contains Monosodium glutamate and aspartate( it’s listed on the label) and trying to eat Whole Foods only and unprocessed food. I can tell you my symptoms became much much better

      I have been trying recently to restrict my caffeine intake. It was not easy as I had these coffee break rituals that I really loved but I’ve replaced them with other drinks and nowadays I have only my morning coffee.
