    I am still hammering away at this anti-inflam diet. Having a few meals I actually like keeps me going!

    Well, I had a meltdown last week, after not eating for 2 days under a lot of stress with the move and a really wacky black comedy of a Mother's Day, but when things started settling down, I did a screeching turn into a parking lot with a food truck on it and had a styrofoam clamshell filled with deep fried clam strips and French fries.

    No regrets.

    my one food sensitivity is frctose, so no HFCS at all, and apples, avacados, etc are really bad for me. I haven't seen a weight change but when i figured this out i was dealing with stomach distress and that was not the reason. I get very concerned about the prevalence of HFCS in our diets. It is very hard to avoid, i dont get any sauces, desserts or beverages other than plain iced tea when i am out.

    I went on the no sugar thing over a month ago and now that i could have sugar i really don't want very much. I had a few ice cream bars and then just cleaned out my kitchen and threw out the hot cocoa mixes and really old frosting. I can eat bananas and some berries which is sweet enough

    All my foods are whole, unprocessed, and rather fresh. Though I do eat organic, local saurkraut and kefir (no other dairy products though).

    And for the hell of it I also stopped adding salt to foods.I have not shaken the shaker since March.

    So here I am 23 days into this...

    I feel a little better. And I am somewhat accustomed to eating these flavorless foods.

    Anyone else on this diet?

    I have noticed during my low carb diets off and on over the past few years that aches and pains almost go away. Probably because of the no sugar part of the diet?

    I am still sticking to this flavorless diet. I am weighing in at about 192 elbeez. So no major weight loss.

    I often find myself fantasizing about food. This disturbs me! haha

    When I was a young man my fantasy time was composed almost entirely of sex. But as a middle aged, out-of-shape, Midwestern, doughy dude I find myself fantasizing about buttery biscuits, ball park hot dogs, Indian buffets, slices of triple pepperoni pizza, and tall, cold glasses of whole milk. lol

    Nonetheless, I am still on this diet. Though I don't know that it is having any notable effect on my chronic illness.

    It can take awhile for you to feel better. I have a friend who once could barely move due to chronic pain. She went on an anti-inflammatory diet and followed it religiously. It took 10 months for her to start feeling better. It's been several years now and the change has been dramatic. She is back to skiing, hiking, etc.

    If it wasn't for her, I would have given up on the anti-inflammatory diet after a month. But I stuck with it like she did and my pain levels dropped dramatically. I only take the occasional Advil or Tylenol now where as before I was popping them like Skittles.

    Now that I'm eating clean, I find that I rarely crave the "forbidden" foods. Some foods, like pizza, don't even seem like food anymore. But I do have a sweet tooth and crave chocolate and ice cream, especially in the summer.

    The best suggestion I heard was to follow the 80/20 rule. Eat 80% anti-inflammatory food and you could probably tolerate the other 20%. Better yet, is to follow the 90/10 rule, which is what I aim for.

    Don't give up. You may need a lot more time to feel the benefits.

    Most flavorful foods can be adapted to whatever food plan you're following. I can't imagine adhering to a flavorless regime for long; thankfully, I don't have to.
