Cut down on Sugar
After a bit of trial and error, I have noticed a big impact on my fibromyalgia symptoms according to my diet. For me the biggest impact I noticed is that my symptoms are a lot less when I cut out refined sugar. I used to eat a lot of cookies and cake as these are total comfort food for me. But by cutting down on sugary products, it seems to help in two ways. Firstly with the emotionally highs and lows that come with eating sugar. But secondly, and the bigger impact I see, is that the pain in my muscles and the constant exhaustion is less when I have fully cut out refined sugar.

What You'll Do
- When thinking you want a brownie, try having fruit
