    I had fairly similar symptoms to you, and I got diagnosed as non celiac gluten intolerant. The time before the celiac test was horrendous. You can't stop eating gluten or you risk invalidating the...

    For the sake of adding another experience:

    I live with a housemate and his two cats. We share most dinners, so we go 50/50 on the food.
    Over the last month we spend a bit under 250, including...

    PoeticPixe-
    It shocked me too. It sure is a huge readjustment to suddenly be reasonably healthy, when even brushing my teeth didn't count as an everyday essential anymore.
    The amount of food my...

    Unfortunately a large percentage of doctors seem to be idiots.
    I don't have MS, but had a mystery illness which got shuffled under the term CFS. I got progressively worse over a decade of doctors...

    I tried it once when I was vegan. I stuck to tofu after that. TVP is the single most horrible form of protein I have ever encountered. It doesn't just have no flavour, it is a black hole for flavour.

    Welcome to the mystery fatigue club. Sorry you qualify.

    I've had a diagnosis of CFS for years, though at least half of it turned out to be wheat related. Mono is a common initiator for CFS. The...

    Ok, I just plugged those into a converter.
    That's 348 total cholesterol up from 181, and hdl is currently 84.

    I am not an expert, but that definitely sounds worryingly high, and dare I say more...

    I am betting on the flax too. I don't know if ground flax has the same properties, but the whole seeds are not very digestible and go very gloopy. A sort of cross between egg white and wallpaper...

    The things that make me feel sluggish: less than 8-9 hours sleep, not enough calories in general, not enough carbs.
    If you were able to feel energetic on 5-7 hours of sleep that would make you an...

    The article sbhikes linked is pretty much spot on imo. When I was vegan I felt better for a while and in some respects, but I my health ended up crashing bad enough that I went to SAD out of sheer...

    I started primal exclusively for health reasons. I had so little energy I could barely cope with cooking and cleaning, let alone do anything fun. I was also most definitely skinny fat. After being...

    I use cronometer and it's never given me weird percentages. That said, those add up to 82%. I am guessing that two should be twenty.
    You can input custom percentages, but I use it more as a tracker...

    If you do actually react to gluten you want to stay away from sausages, black puddings and the like. They do usually contain rusk. Depending on how sensitive you react sauces and soups can also be a...

    There isn't any real need for egg or dairy, although they are awfully convenient sometimes. There's also no need for protein powders. If smoothies are a convenient meal form for you, try to reframe...

    I think the relative prevalence of those kinds of recipes it's because that's the pale/primal stuff that warrant separate recipes. A recipe for roast pork belly is the same whether it's labelled...

    A lot of plants not found in the produce aisle are edible. I do believe tulips have a certain grade of toxicity, but I don't know if that applies to the flowers as well.

    I was vegetarian for ethical reasons as well. It makes me sad to think about it, but I had to just bracket any ethical considerations out as my health declined. I ended up reasoning that I had to be...

    For me it took a few days to a week at most to stop feeling like snacking all the time.
    I was fairly strict about carbs at the time, but I am not sure how much that mattered.
