S/C/G: 272/228/under 200 for now

Height: 5'0"

Default After only a week of eating right...

the swelling in my legs, feet, hands and fingers is gone. The nerve pain that I've been having in my right leg and mid back region is almost gone.
There must be a huge link in aches & pains and high calorie, fatty & carb ridden foods. Because that's what I was eating before.
Anyone else experience this?

Much of my swelling went away, as well. I am eating pretty low carb now, and have been for awhile. I eat loads of vegies, some fruits, meats, fish, poultry, eggs and drink lots of water-- try to avoid liquids with calories. I have the occasional whole grains, (no wheat, which is darn hard). Oh, by the way, eating the way I do eliminates lots of additives and preservatives, as I am a scrupulous label checker. Unlike some on these boards, however, I still use the occasional artificial sweetener, and still like my coffee and tea. (Hardly ever a soda, and then just a small glass as a special treat--maybe once every month or so.)

My scale hasn't moved for awhile, I need to get moving more, but I feel so much better, I almost can't believe it. This is becoming more and more a lifestyle I can live with.!!

My leg and ankle swelling was the first to respond to my new way of eating.
I will:Journal every bite * Be gentle to myself and my family * Exercise to the best of my ability * Drink at least 8 glasses of water * Focus on colorful veggies, salads, low gycemic fruit, lean proteins and healthy fats * Limit grains * Get up at the same time everyday and get back into routine * Visit 3FC every day, it makes a big difference to my attitude, thanks to the wonderful folks here.

Wheat seems to trigger something similar in me, too.

One for every 5 lbs lost.
Startin' over: got below 180 in 2009 and regained. This time I'm not dieting. I'm learning to live like a 140-pound person.

I think it's wheat for me, plus general processed rubbish.
I began the current diet trying lowcarb and within a very few days my joint pains had gone and my skin much improved. I was eating fairly high fat, though, so I don't think fat's the issue for me.

When I moved on to the Low GI, therefore higher carb WOE (I still keep to 100g or under), I was worried that the aches and pains and trumpetting insides would all come back - but they haven't. I'm putting that down to absence of wheat. I suppose it could just be absence of garbage but I don't miss wheat enough to bother trying to add it back in.
