Got this, got FM/CFIDS and many, many other incidentals and weight gain and excessive carbohydrate craving are driving me mad!!! Please, if any of my friends can give me specifics relating to what I should and should not be eating~~~how much and what portions, etc., I would be so grateful. I have stopped the aspartame and am only drinking water. I have some seriously major DISLIKES for a lot of foods, but I need to know what'll help me shed this weight. Yes, I've had hypothyroidism for about 12 years and take a lose dose of Synthroid to keep me within the normal range. I stopped my two antidepressants a month ago and I'm taking Black Cohosh for menopause and Milk Thistle for liver detox. along with a vitamin and mineral supplement and Calcium with D. I take Ultram mainly for pain, but take Vicodin p.r.n. Any advice??
