    Unhappy Small Meals And Anti-Stress Methods

    So normally I am somewhat like a specialist on those topics but currently I am pretty insecure / uncreative. Maybe some of you can help me out with some ideas.

    Let's assume I needed to start a diet where I could eat small meals circadian only; with mostly carbohydrates; no fruits; no additions like monosodium glutamate etc and no or only a very little amount of (citric) acids, what would you recommend? Especially if - let's say - for some reason I didn't have much appetite for anything, because I was quite sick of food and would eat only because I have to (otherwise the stomach hurts like crap). Any ideas? Because I really can't come up with anything anymore. It's quite frustrating actually. So in case you have any idea, please post it. Thanks.

    Holy hell, only carbohydrates. Well you would have to make sure that you're extremely active everyday I suppose. Otherwise it would be just dead weight. I wouldn't recommend it, the fruits provide you with energy from natural sugars.

    Either way you would have to base it around a lot of bread and rice. Add fish to your rice and bread templates. Stick to seafood like shark, crab, lobster, and any desired type of fish. They'll provide you with all the nutrients and protein that you need. Don't eat steak, it would be junk since you're mostly carb to begin with. Also snack on yogurt, almonds, cashews, walnuts, pecans, etc. Keep up on calcium and sugar with Vitamin D milk or something.

    Let me know how it goes.

    Thanks. Unfortunately this is not really a choice-thing, more of a "have to". =/

    Bread, rice, fish and nuts. Yeah I forgot those. I was mostly thinking noodles and potatoes. So thank you.

    Can you eat other vegetables, like carrots, pumpkin, sweet potato etc?

    Yeah I *think* veggies work.
    From what I have seen there were reactions with wraps (because of the wraps themselves only), Pesto, sometimes yoghurts or milk, some types of pizza, saucages of any kind, some "country pan" from the store and also stuff like energy drinks.

    To make it all more funny and challenging, sometimes some of those things also work and do not cause any reactions; but instead some other stuff does.
    I have been writing down the reactions since a few months, and this was it so far.

    In addition it seems that stuff like chocolate works well; while other things cause quite some heavy damage. It's quite a little mess and medics are puzzled.

    So thanks you guys. I appreciate any help; because I must honestly say that I start to get seriously scared of food.

    Remind me next time we're online at the same time.. I've been through an awful lot of this with my sister who has endless changing food intolerances.

    Could it be a cumulative thing? A friend of mine has severe food insensitivities. She has to limit the total amount of particular foods, but she can eat some foods in small amounts. See this as an example of food intolerance that is dose-dependent.

    Oh, well it is not exactly an allergy. Some food will cause my stomach to produce too much acids and depending on how nervous it gets, it causes more or less pain.

    I was told to do the following
    ~ a diet, where I should mostly eat carbohydrates and not too much fat or proteins
    ~ eat often, but only small amounts of food
    ~ not eat too spicy
    ~ watch out to not eat / drink anything with peppermint or menthol
    ~ drink either certain teas or just water, but not hot or cold, only lukewarm
    ~ no fruits, milk or anything with any (citric) acids
    ~ relax, keep stress down and be positive

    I used to have this problem before; mostly due to much stress. It stopped after reducing it. Recently it started again, but this time the relaxing stuff I have been doing the last time didn't really work.

    I am slowly getting really bothered by this. I have been dealing with that stuff for months and I am not too sure anymore on what to eat. As I said already: if I could I would eat nothing, but being hungry sucks and trying to sleep like that is quite impossible.


    About the Salicylates: oddly I can eat some of those things with no problems; even a lot of them. But I guess I will keep those in mind. Thank you.

    Ooooh chocolate. Try the real dark, heavy, cacao chocolates. Bite off a piece, and then drink milk at the same time. It's sooo good, and quite filling as well. They make ample snacks.
