Hi. Since diagnosis, my hubby has been brilliant. My parents continue to treat me like I don't know what I'm talking about. But today's priceless comment comes from my brother.

He's changed to something called the Palio diet. As well as losing a considerable amount of weight (he needed to!) he's convinced that as a sufferer of ibs and depression have all but been cured by this diet.

I on the other hand remain sceptical, but as I sat there rubbing my back n hips which are my real bad areas he told me losing weight would help with my conditions. As well as fibro I have Ménière's disease. I wouldn't mind but I'm a size 12 lower half and being somewhat top heavy I'm a 16 upper half, so hardly overweight.

It's funny isn't it when someone try's something that works for them, they think it's a cure all. X

I wouldn't mind but when he was obese and I lost weight watchers I didn't preach non stop to him. Whilst like most people I'd like to lose a few pounds I certainly don't consider myself overweight and albeit the upper end of it I'm within my ideal weight bracket as gauged by the nhs x

Just had another text saying that he's seen that gluten intolerance is linked to fibro. In my politest manner possible told him that I'm glad it works for him but until a medical professional tells me this I'll stick as I am thanks! I'm already on a low salt diet for Menieres and I'm allergic to dairy so if I cut anything else out it really will be a case of water on a fork! Having a rotten day today and he's just made me wanna scream

I cook all my food from scratch so very little additives in it

Heh, I've tried every changing pretty much everything in my diet that's been 'linked to fibro' and none of it has made any difference at all. I have a very healthy diet anyway so all I have done is cut out certain things eg wheat and gluten, oxalates, etc. If it was linked to diet then I'd have seen some difference by now.

Take no notice of him, sometimes because we do seem to suffer a lot of sensitivities there are recommendations to avoid certain foods, I personally think its a matter of choice, you will know if something you eat makes you feel yuck and then you tend to avoid it (unless its [chocolate] [chocolate] [chocolate] [chocolate] related :lol: :lol: :lol: )

I agree with SC if everything FM was related to diet we would all have been 'cured' years ago :-D :-D :-D :-D
