Hi.
Has anyone else experienced the following, out of interest?

So, having suffered for too long with a bad back, especially over the past 8 months, 1 decided enough is enough. I therefore decided to firstly, lose weight and then, if that didn't help I would have to look at having an operation.

As I have a new TAB I have since found this www and associated app, which has been excellent in helping me keep track of what I am eating and that is it. No secret diet, or anything like that, just calorie control.

The main point I would like to make and maybe get some feedback on is that the back pain improved almost immediately, like within a couple of days and gets better each day. I also feel 100% more alive and energetic, which I also attribute to the much improved back.

Anyway, feedback would be good but I have also posted this so that it may encourage someone else to give the old diet a try, to help with their back pain.

Regards,
JC

I'm confused, so cutting calories cured your back pain?

Yes, basically. I couldn't believe the improvement and it couldn't be weight loss, although I think this helps too. I have lost 3 kgs now, in 3 weeks. My golf has improved, for sure! And no, I am not trying to hawk anything; just trying to help others.

Sometimes little things can make a difference. I'm glad your back is better - those pains are no fun.

I think when you see this kind of results, it's probably not JUST the weight loss, but maybe also the change in food choices that went with it.

Still, keep doing what you're doing. Keep getting better. Well done! Smile

I went from morbidly obese to being the owner of TABDIG - a weight loss coaching service that helps people worldwide losing weight. It's been an amazing journey. From October 4th 2010 to April 3rd 2012 I lost half my body weight - 80 kilos/170 lbs. Since then, I have had two cosmetic surgeries to remove excess skin. I have now quadrupled my strength, gained several kilos in muscle mass, and today I focus on building muscle, optimizing my diet, living healthy and helping people to reach the very same goals. I am stronger, healthier, thinner, happier! If you feel that you need help losing weight, don't hesitate to send me an inbox message.

As Keld says an improvement in diet usually flows into other areas, better habits often breed better results in a wide range of benefits. For myself I started IF (intermittent fasting) on the 1st of December and have noticed remarkable improvements in my back pain, and arthritic foot. This phenomena is pretty well documented I have gone on to discover due to the body renewing and repairing cells when its under fasting stress which it doesn't do if its getting fed regularly. Naturally everyone watching what they eat in actual fact usually fast for 12 hours a day without realising it - assuming an evening meal at 8pm and breakfast at 8am that's a 12 hour fast, so that along with much improved diet - eating less and better quality of food that you are doing may well explain it rather than the 3 kilo weight loss. Whatever is the cause, its great to hear you are doing so well - keep it up. Steve

The kinds of food we eat can make us feel good or bad, so making the healthy choices is what we have to do. You can google "Anti-Inflammatory Foods" and see the most famous foods that help with health: blueberries, cherries, broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, and kale, Dark-green lettuce, spinach, tomatoes, and other salad veggies, olive oil, coldwater fish like salmon, grass-fed beef, turmeric, ginger, garlic, green tea, etc.

JC - It seems whatever you were doing has reduced inflammation in your body. An average of 1kg weight lost per week is excellent. Well done! Keep the momentum Wink

Mayo clinic arthritis area has been pushing anti inflammatory foods for decades. Diet and gradually increased exercise recommended by them took a former associate of mine from on the edge of being able wheelchair bound from the pain when walking to competing in speed walking races over a couple years time.

Thanks, for the replies. Am definitely going to look further into AI foods, for sure. I can't believe how much better I feel, and so rapidly too. My golf and bass guitar have improved beyond measure as have my energy levels and general outlook on life. Also, now realise how depressed I had become, like carrying a monkey, or rather silver back gorilla, on my back. One thing's for sure, I wont be going back to my previous diet, now I know how bad it made me feel.

PS
How many calories in a Martini. Would have just had the olive, if I had known!

I just wanted to say one of my friends and I had bad knees and when we started eating clean, no processed foods the pain went away. Food is medicine. Laurie P.S. Not selling or buying anything! Other than food.

If food is medicine, so is exercise. Make sure you get out there and MOVE everyday, too!

Wow. Inspiring. When I finish my Spring cleaning, a lot of the processed food will be gone & I'll know where all the food and spices are located. I'll even know what shelf everything is on.

The key will be to not buy too much bulk at Costco, so that items overflow, and to buy for specific meal plans. In other words, not just because I'm running low on a favorite staple.
