Hungry And Losing Weight

Recommended Posts

For the last 18 months I have had some very severe physical pain accompanied with a lot of different symptoms including inflammation.  After spending a long time being looked at as a hypochondriac, I tested positive for rheumatoid arthritis in my blood.  My mother and brother have RA and my mother was very crippled by it.  I don't want that to happen to me so I have been researching the causes of this rather than just taking drugs which will make my system worse.  I have decided the best course to take is to try and repair a leaky gut whilst eliminating all of the foods that I appear to be intolerent to.  It turns out that many of those foods are my daily sustenance foods.  Basically I can now only eat meat, fruit and veges ( not all veges since I can't have nightshades and banana's)

 

I have been adhering to this diet and my pain and inflammation has reduced by 90%, although I still have some pain and inflammation and other symptoms such as runny/stuffy nose.

 

The thing is I am now hungry a lot of the time and I am looking pretty skinny and pale. (although I was always skinny but now I don't look good)  I am craving white carbs etc.  If I didn't know how much pain I will be in the next day I would probably bender eat but the consequences are too great so I control myself.

 

Today for the first time I am trying walnuts.  I hope I don't react to them but I just want some protein.  I'm not entirely sure but I don't think I can have eggs without a reaction either.

 

Has anyone got any suggestions as to what I can eat to fill me up.  I get very sick from protein powders.

 

Thanks in advance

It is fats you would appear to be missing...olive oil, avocado etc  butter if you are not dairy intolerant.  your vitamin D may well be low as well.  Good luck

Can you have potatoes? That is my filler most nights, and I eat avocados everyday. I carry sunflower seeds around and munch on them to curve my hunger and trail mix with nuts raisins m&ms and seeds. Do you have problems with rice, or corn?

You said you could eat meat and fish, so eat plenty of those -- for breakfast, lunch and dinner.  Eat hard squash (like butternut), yams and sweet potatoes (which are NOT part of the nightshade family).    I basically eat "dinner" for breakfast.  Wierd, but it keeps ya full!  Go outside your comfort zone and eat different veggies.  I live on the west coast so we have access to Asian veggies, and they are yummy (like taro).  You shouldn't be hungry if you're consuming enough good foods.  You might just be craving junk just (like all of us!)

 

Good luck!
