In the 12 seconds it's taken me to log-in, I've actually forgotten what I was going to say lol. ... Err... yes, low GI diet has definitely improved my night-time and morning symptoms - I seem to sleep better and tend not to wake with that 'flu feeling (except for when the weather conspires against me) now that I've eliminated most carbs and all root vegetables and fruit. I mostly subsist on wholegrain oats (porridge, oatcakes etc.), some rice, and lots of leafy green vegetables (both in salads and soups), as well as protein with every meal (everything from nuts to red meat) and high quality fats (namely organic virgin coconut oil and extra virgin olive oil). For many years I had a major problem digesting any kind of fat (which left me basically on steamed poultry and fish, and absolutely no dairy), and would wake in the early hours being violently sick (if you've never had bile come out your nose, I don't recommend it). My BMI was stuck at about 17.5 and doctors had decided I was attention-seeking - especially as the gastroscopy revealed zilch. I now believe this was down to hypoglycaemia. Although my fatigue and other symptoms have worsened significantly in the last 12-18 months (due to meds for endometriosis), I have found that taking a high-dose probiotic twice a day, and supplementing with, among other things, L-carnitine and COQ10, I have actually gained almost 12lbs in the last 4 months or so and BMI now = 19.5. My appetite is very up and down; there are nights when I go to bed starving hungry, and then there are literally weeks on end when I'm not hungry at all, but I eat the same day in, day out regardless because I know that not eating catches up with me eventually and it takes months to put back the pounds. I do drink ~ 2 litres filtered water each day, plus a cup of green tea a.m. and p.m. but by basically avoiding all sugar (in its many aforementioned guises) I don't suffer from that rollercoaster effect on energy levels anymore, and pain and mood are much improved too. Hope this helps -- I can't really remember what the question was?! Argh... yes, it's one of *those* days.
