Yeah, most I could do paleo was three months, because I had so much pain at that point! And it took several months to fix it. So many migraines! I did lose about 20 pounds in a month on paleo, though. I did try it again because it was so successful in making me drop weight, but again, so many migraines, it was awful.

I don't eat much fruit, either, ruthiegirl.


I wonder why the migraines from paleo??

Thanks everyone, for your input!!  I have been away for a while, so a very belated thanks!  

I have been cooking grains for my AB DH.  However, that is my downfall!  If I see it and I am hungry, I will eat it!!!  Hard to resist when it is there and I love the rice!  I do feel feel better when I am off grains, though, but he needs it to gain back the weight that he lost when he cut out wheat!

I am also trying to gain back some of the weight that I lost on the BTD...I am 101 lbs.  Grains put it on a bit, but then it all goes to my tummy!

I have told others that I can stuff myself like a pig, but as long as I eat compliant foods, I just cannot gain more than a pound!!!  Even the rice!!  I need to rebuild some muscle!

I think you need to exercise to rebuild muscle- specifically weight-bearing exercises such as lifting weights. And eat plenty of protein too.

Yes, of course.  I have been exercising, but then that made me lose weight, because I am burning off calories.

possible reason: some mthfr mutations make it hard to digest sulfur, and she had started eating many more greens and veggies (greens, high in sulfur) I have this issue….stick to zucchini, carrots, mushrooms, and a few mild veggies. ( a little onion, which is also sulfury, but you need flavor)

I am very confused.  Grains are listed as bennies for my AB husband and probably some other BTs.  But, there is so much talk about going grain-free and grains being toxic on the internet.

I think it's to be expected, after an era of pasta- and whole-grain-worship.

Would that be from the onesizefitsall community?

seffera, do you have an Indian grocery near you? ask for graham flour, despite the name it is made from chick peas and they carry other types of bean/ pea flours as well though you may have to ask what they are called individually.


nothing to do? who has that!?

Thankyou, Lloyd, I hope to read the links you mentioned. thanks, Dianne - yes celery good, lunch today - two apples, one peach, watermelon, broccoli, celery (some blended); very delicious, easy to digest, alkalising, and great for cleansing system too!
lunch yesterday was 7 bananas, two apples - I felt so good, and no need for snacking these days. I didn't know bananas also contain pectin and guar gum, great for lower digestive organs/system.  Someone told me yesterday banana bread good too, I said, not for me though  - bananas much better..... the bread would make me very sick; ie grains/salt/fat/sugar, ughh!


Seven bananas seems like an awful lot of bananas.  They are very high in sugar, especially seven of them.  Is there a reason you are eating seven bananas and two apples for lunch?  Are you on some kind of a fast?

jayneeo, I hadn't thought about the sulfur mutation. I eat tons of eggs (always have) and the greens actually don't bother me. It's the salicylates in berries and almonds (I was doing smoothies with homemade almond milk) and supposedly histamine issues, too (ground meats and, again, berries). Both are difficult for MTHFR-ers because we break those things down so much slower than "normal" people.

For whatever, reason, when I don't eat brown rice and/or beans for several days, I get monster migraines. Regardless of whether I eat greens or berries. I figure brown rice is on my son's SWAMI (we're very similar and both O negative) as a superfood, so there's gotta be a reason. It makes my brain and nervous system happy, so I'm not giving it up!
