This is a diet question, but I figured it would be more likely to be seen in this section, so here goes: Obviously diet is crucial in the healing of all disease, no matter what. However, CFS is in part, a disease of energy metabolism, and in my case, faitigue is my worst symptom, hence my main target for healing. The more research I do, I find that a low carb, paleo type diet is the ideal for overall health, however I recognize that one can eat tons of veggies on both a high carb and low carb diet, and I have tried periods of low carb in the past, before and after the sickness, and I have always crashed in energy after five days or so. Hence, my intake of the not actually healthy whole grains has remained a bit high. I would love to habitate myself to a lower carb diet, but I hate the energy reduction and the fluid loss. Is it just a situation of needing to get past the first hump? How many of you have seen an increase in energy with this change?
