I'm a Very Low Carb to Zero Carb eater. I came into this after a long, fruitless decade of trying everything that I could think of to stop the slow decline in health I'd been suffering for a long time. And though it goes against what current medical science would tell us, dropping 90% of my fruits and veggies (I still use them as spices), starches, sugars/sugar substitutes, and ALL grains from my diet seems to have turned the tide. I will have been doing this for a year on December 1st, 2009, and intend to keep on doing it. My original symptoms that developed over about 10 years: * extreme weakness * fatigue * severe depression/anxiety * hair loss * muscle stiffness and pain * foggy thinking * disorientation * bloating * stomach/gal bladder pain (test photos revealed no ulceration, but severe inflammation) * constipation and diarrhea - rarely anything else * skin soreness over stomach/gal bladder/intestinal track. * trouble sleeping - would wake up in the middle of the night and not be able to go back to sleep All gone. I am a new person.
