Thanks, everybody, for contributing to this thread. I think it's very hard to argue one way or another about diet since it's so complex and the epidemiological research is very difficult to interpret. I think, especially those of us who are sick and so to whom broad-scale research may not apply, that we have to test things for ourselves. Unfortunately, changing diet, even if it's for the best in the long-term, can cause ill effects in the short term while the body adjusts so judging a diet by its early-stage effects isn't necessarily the best way, hence my confusion. As it's turned out, I'm feeling much better this morning having switched back to my old diet a couple of days ago. Disappointing, because I'd hoped there was a chance for improvement with a different diet, but still, we have to try things out sometimes. Good luck to everybody with their diet choices! Just another of those challenges for PWME.
