Low carb diet helped pain in my chronic pain in ribs.

Moms View Message Board: Let's Get Fit! (Weight Loss Support Group): Low carb diet helped pain in my chronic pain in ribs.

I have had a pain in my right rib for over 5 years. I must have hurt my ribs. Just a little dull ache.

Anyway I was out walking and notice that pain seemed to be gone today. I am afraid I have to think that the carbs I was eatting wasn't helping my chronic on and off again aches and pains...

I will be sure to tell you if it is just a fuke and the pain comes back. Knees is pretty good. Still walking on the grass for 30-45 minutes a day. It was hot as anything today, but when is the weather perfect?

I have alot of time to think when I am walking. I was thinking about all the aches and pains I had over the years and that some people suggested I have "leaky gut" syndrome which cause the aches and pains. The cure was no wheat or bread diet. It was impossible for me to follow at the time, but now I seem to be doing good (knock wood) so I will have to evaluate my progress on no wheat diet.

I seem to be doing well. Liking the food. I got rolfed on Friday so I have been tired all weekend.

I think the oatmeal in the morning is not a good choice. It makes me alittle tired, probably spiking my insuln levels but I can't think of what else to eat... I think I will just add some nuts to the oatmeal in the morning.

Feona, it's proven that a high carb diet, or in some people, low amounts of carbs, have a direct relation to pain, and the most likely reason for that is candida. My sister had systemic candida, went through detox, etc. She has to follow an extremely strict diet, which for her means absolutely NO wheat products whatsoever.

I had found through trial and error, the less sugar and wheat products I eat, the less pain I have. I have never been tested for wheat allergies, but I suspect I do have a wheat allergy, my sister is extremely allergic to wheat, so is Jules.

I have to agree with both of you!!! Since being on this diet, *all* those little annoying pains just don't bother me anymore... and then, I realized, it's because they're not there anymore! Definitely has something to do with it!
