I've been on the 0 diet for a year. When I first started I ate ONLY beneficial foods, and within a week all of my aches and pains went away. Gradually I added back some of the two times a week or less foods (NOTE: my ND does not subscribe to the notion that any of the foods are neutral; they are either beneficial, detrimential if eaten more than occassionally, or downright toxic). There seems to be a cumulative effect if you regularly eat too many foods in the "neutral" - NOT!- category.
By this winter I was back to having aches and pains and to craving sweets and carbohydrates. I find that I ache if I eat even the slightest bit of corn or wheat includng anything with corn syrup or corn starch, or soy sauce made with wheat. I had a bone scan, too, and I'm in good shape, but I do take 1,500 mg. calcium (with magnesium) a day. I also find that I do best with absolutely no sugar except what I get in fruit, and then I go easy on the fruit. I'm a negative scretor, which makes me particularly sensitive. Have you had a complete blood type test, including the M, N, L, and positive/negative secretor information. This provides a more accurate information regarding what foods are beneficial and which to avoid. The generic O diet is just that: generic.
Jams made with corn syrup would be a problem for me. My problem now is getting back on the diet. Can't seem to find the will to kick the carbo habit.
