Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Diet
When you have chronic fatigue syndrome, diet plays an important role. While there’s no cure for this syndrome and you may still have problems, a healthy diet can improve your quality of life.
One of the most important words you can learn when you have chronic fatigue syndrome is “balance”. When it comes to your diet the idea of balance is critical.
You don’t want to omit any food group and you want to make sure you get a healthy variety.
You need to eat foods that are as unprocessed as possible. That means try to eat whole grains, fruits, vegetables, nuts, beans, dairy and proteins that don’t come out of a box or a can.
The idea of shopping around the perimeter of the store will help you to get more fresh foods and fewer that are processed with preservatives and artificial ingredients.
It’s especially important to make sure you’re getting enough protein and healthy fat in your diet. Protein helps your body to repair itself and will help you to have healthier cells.
You’ll also benefit from healthy fats that can keep you feeling satisfied and help your brain cells and nerves to function properly.
Foods high in antioxidants such as blueberries and dark chocolate are excellent additions to your diet. They can naturally raise the serotonin levels in your brain and improve your mood and energy levels.
There are some things that you need to avoid that can make chronic fatigue syndrome symptoms worse.
By eliminating them from your diet you may see improvements in your symptoms and be better able to manage your illness.
Caffeine is a chemical that works as a stimulant. If you’re having a tough time with sleeping at night, caffeine can be your worst enemy.
It may help you to eliminate coffee, tea, and caffeinated soda. You’ll find that you sleep better at night and that can help you to have more energy.
Tobacco is another product that you need to avoid when you have chronic fatigue syndrome. It’s also a stimulant that can interfere with your rest.
It can also deplete you even further of energy because it causes you to be deprived of oxygen.
Having added problems of heart disease and lung disease that often goes hand in hand with tobacco can make chronic fatigue syndrome symptoms even worse.
It’s very difficult to quit smoking and you may need to get help from your healthcare provider to do it – but it will be worth it.
Chronic fatigue syndrome can be managed and you can feel better. Diet is one of the most important ways to improve your quality of life and reduce your symptoms.
