So how are you all getting on with the new year resolutions?
To be honest I’m not going to bad. I’m reading at least a chapter in my book every night which is a miracle for me and I’m really enjoying it.
I’m trying to eat slightly healthier (as i’m sipping on a can of coke) lol
I have been thinking about trying to go more raw/vegan, as I am already a veggy. I have watched a lot of things online about how changing your diet can help cure sickness and cancer so I’m wondering would it also help with body pain. As my pain at the moment is at an all time high between my fibro and discs in my neck wearing away which in turn refers pain into neck, shoulder blade, down arm, in hand and fingers and in collar bone….Oh the joys!
So the question is…..To completely change everything and just do it and if my pain still is the same well at least I can say I have officially tried everything possible or should I not bother and just continue with healthiest eating with not much effort?
What do you think?
If you eat a raw diet or vegan or plant based please let me know….
Is it hard to do?
How do you feel?
If i did change i would do it in stages anyway but slowly cutting things out of my diet instead of cutting it all out at once because i know that would probably only work for a day and then I’d be back to square one.
So if you guys have any advice let me know.

You might want to look at other things in your diet. I’m guessing if you are a vegetarian you are still eating a lot of grains. I found that gluten was a huge contributor to my pain levels. Another contributor is nightshades (tomatoes, eggplant, peppers). These are known to increase pain. You might want to try playing around with each eliminating one group for a while and seeing how you respond. It’s hard when you are already so limited to limit yourself even more. These days I’m trying to eat a lot more veggies and a lot less meat, just because I know I should.
Hi Julie, thanks for your comment. Yes I do try not to eat gluten as I know it hurts me. I do also notice when i eat tomatoes I get very back re flux so if I do eat them i find taking the skin off helps and peppers always repeat on me so I try not to eat them. I love eggplant so guess ill stop that for a while and see how i feel.
I think im going to try and eat very clean and as raw, vegan and plant based for at least 6 months and see how I feel…..I’ll keep you all up to date anyway on how its going. Hope the pain isn’t too bad for you at the moment. xoxo
