Looking Ahead to Change: Little by Little
I don't make New Year's Resolutions. I don't think I ever really did, but the last decade or two would have been enough to stifle that impulse. I've just been too aware that I don't have that much control over what happens in my life.

    Hi Guys,
    going through the forums and posting this so it can (potentially) help other people besides myself-
    like you, I've had CFS for about 7 years now. I've been regaining my muscle mass over the past four months after trying unsuccessfully to do so over a period of 6 months doing a graduated exercise program - the key was supplementing with some bodybuilding products.
    In the process of researching this stuff I found several key components of bodybuilding supplements (glucose, L-glutamine, BCAA's and others) have an impact on CFS.
    At any rate, I've now regained 3 kg of muscle mass, and feel better than I've felt in years. It's all down to (a) a graduated exercise program and (b) supplementing.
    I've presented my findings to the Hamilton (New Zealand) CFS/ME society and they were quite impressed. I've compiled my findings into the following document hoping that other people can find this useful - I'm not affiliated with anything, and if I was it would be local to New Zealand anyway -

    Bless you-

    That is interesting anecdotal evidence but not enough to draw any firm conclusions from. Are you going to try and get a randomized controlled trial done to test your theory ?
