Stones.: Plenty of fluids. Avoid foods high in oxalates or phytates. It all depends on the type of stones you have.

Crash diets: Crash diets don't work very well. You need to slow down that food and fat at a rate that decreases you bodies cravings for it. But turn vegan (if it has a face don't eat it, no dairy, no nuts) you'll lose weight fast. It is difficult to do this. Otherwise, you starve.

Crash diets: Vegan diets, lose alot of weight quickly. They are hard to adhere too, especially if you travel or eat out. If it has a face or a mother--don't eat it. No nuts or dairy either. There is your most difficult wt loss, besides keeping your mouth shut.

Diet plans: Most effective diet plans are those that involve permanent changes in eating habits. Portion size restriction, calorie restriction, low bad fats (animal, trans), low glycemic index foods (avoid white bread/rice/pasta/potatoes). Combine these with exercise program: walking is the safest exercise—low impact, easy on joints. Commercial plans like jennie craig & weight watchers seem to work well.

Can a different diet help my fibrofog?

YES: Diets low in sugar and higher in protein with elimination of acids and toxins helps. Of special note drinking sodas and other acidic beverages with inadequate high quality water results in a "gel-like" effect of the interstitial fluids. This means the neurotransmitters take more time to cross the synaptic space resulting in "fog" www.Medacpc.Com.

Every 4 days: The rotation diet refers to eating the same food only once every 4 days to prevent sensitivity reactions. The theory behind it is that food usually takes 4 days to travel through the intestinal tract so by the time you eat the food again, the body does not recognize it as a sensitivity.

Balance : The best diet is relatively high in protein. You should avoid processed sugars and starches, although many natural complex carbs, such as potatoes, are fine. It is advisable to remain caffeine-free, as caffeine makes you more sensitive to low glucose levels.

Agree. Also eat on a regular basis, protein at every meal
