There is a book by an author named Sue Dengate called "Fed Up." It is pretty much an elimination diet that excludes all salicylates and amines from the diet. If you go and google 'failsafe diet chronic fatigue' and click on the top site, that is the section of Sue Dengate's site where readers and patients have posted their experience being on the diet. Alot have been majorly helped by it. Some people even go as far as just eating plain fish and rice! Thing is ive heard first hand from a dietician in Sydney Australia here, that some people have been so disabled with fatigue, pain and fog, and gone onto just fish and rice or potato, and gotten so much energy back they could go back to work or university. This diet is the same as the one developed by the RPA (Royal Prince Alfred) hospital's allergy clinic in Sydney Australia. It is a refined elimination diet, one of the best out there, and they have helped many many people. They have booklets and even a professionally released cook book with shopping list called 'friendly food' which is wonderful and makes the diet so much easier. I think it will be great, and would work or at least greatly help any of us that are "allergic types." even though ive known about this for a while, and should have been doing it a long time, i'm.. lets say.. 'slow to start.' As we often are when it comes to strict diets! hehe. I will certainly be trying it out soon though. And the reward will be when one wakes up one day with alot less pain, less fog, then one won't miss those rich tasty foods as much, because one feels so much better. Post your elimination diet stories here too if you like. Take care. ~Chris.
