"It's not what u eat- but when u eat" by Eric Suarez
Many women who suffer from fibromyalgia, also suffer from digestive issues, such as heartburn, constipation, and I.B.S.
Most of these symptoms are the direct result of diet, stress, and other anxieties.
The stress and anxiety from fibromyalgia alone will cause some digestive disruption.
Most digestive issues can be reduced and avoided, by timing your eating with your daily activities.
A secret many personal trainers know, and also charge good money for, is this:
"It's not really what you eat, but WHEN you eat", that really leads to weight gain and digestive issues.
Now this will not work if you are eating everything and anything under the sun.
You should be getting most of your calories from protein and good carbs, i.e. green vegetables.
For starters, begin planning your meals around:
"What you are about to do".
So for example:
If you have a job where you are required to sit at a desk for 8 hours, you may want to only eat 1 slice of bread with that sandwich for lunch.
Now on the other hand, if you will be eating lunch and then exercising or doing housework, eat up.
Generally you want to eat a good amount of your calories for breakfast and lunch, since you will be up for the next 8-10 hours burning calories.
As night approaches, lighten up on the dinner.
Eating a big dinner and then going night-night is not only going to add fat, but it will cause some of the digestive issues mentioned above.
Stay away from bread, rice, pasta, and potatoes after 6:00 PM.
Stick to chicken, fish, steak, light salads and vegetables.
It takes some work but you can do it.
It is really one of the easiest diet tricks out there.
Get used to planning a big delicious breakfast everyday instead of a huge dinner.
If you can do this just 3 or 4 days a week, plus mix in some exercise, your weight and digestive issues will reduce.
It's - Eat.........move!
Not - Eat..........snooze!
Exceed your expectations!
