Diet advice for fibromyalgia
February 23, 2016

We are what we eat

What should you be eating?

Lean proteins, Vegetables, and Natural Fats. These are the foods which will deliver the amount of nutrients and energy you require. Let's take a closer look...

Proteins (serving size equals one palm size portion.)

They pack a punch. High-quality proteins (not processed.)

Beef, Eggs, Fish, Pork, Chicken (skinless), Turkey (skinless), Scallops, Tuna, and Whey protein shakes.

Why are proteins so important to fibromyalgia sufferers?

Because they repair damaged muscles resulting in fibromyalgia pain relief. Some theories on a fibromyalgia cure focus on the fact that fibromyalgia sufferers have weak and damaged muscle tissues and fibers.

Protein is highly effective in repairing your damaged muscles, especially if you suffer from those nasty fibromyalgia tender points.

Protein should be an essential part of your diet for fibromyalgia. My only caution is to those who suffer from kidney disease. Please, always consult with your doctor first.

Vegetables (Low Starch)

Zucchini, Artichokes, Turnips, Asparagus, Spinach, Broccoli, Brussels Sprouts, Onions, Cauliflower, Mushrooms, Celery, Cucumbers.

I’ve previously written about the research done on fibromyalgia and Oxidative stress.

Oxidative stress is a cell-damaging process which is often higher in the bodies of people with fibromyalgia. There is research to suggest that it plays a role in the development of the condition. This is why I suggest eating lots of vegetables.

Vegetables are are chock full of antioxidants that may reduce oxidative stress. In a few studies, a high-in-produce, raw vegetarian or vegan diet even reduced fibro pain and stiffness in study participants.
