lizbennet Posted March 9, 2013 Share Posted March 9, 2013 Hello, everyone! I was referred to this site by an acquaintance and after a discussion with my doctor. almost three years ago, i wasdiagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome, to which i also refer as the "fat and lazy disease." i have battled with doctors about meds, treatment regimines, etc, to no avail. in fact, the past five months have been the hardest for me, and i have had to take off a significant amount of work because of my fatigue. i also am the mother of two sweet kiddos under the age of 6, and am wife to an amazing husband who has been incredibly supportive. the bottom line is that i would like my life back. i met with a new doctor just this morning, and discussed new treatments and options. i talked about this diet. he appears encouraging of alternative treatments, not just "let me try this medication and see what happens," and agreed that it might be helpful to my system. so, with his blessing i have ordered the book and am looking at starting the whole30 as soon as possible. i was hoping for more immediate resources on this site, like the shopping list, without having to shell out more money, so that i could start sooner than whenever the book arrives. like, tomorrow! i'm scared the cravings will be too much for me, or the detox feeling, so i was hoping to start over a weekend instead of a monday, when i'm back to work. but, i'm essentially sick and tired of being sick and tired, and no one has been able to help me. i'm hoping that this will help reprogram my body and i can rejoin life again! Have a great night everyone! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
