I hear people eating everything and people eating very restrictive. This is giving me severe food anxieties as I’m not sure what to do. So far I’m limiting everything, but have already become very sick and bored with what I’m eating and still loosing weight. How many people do not limit their diet and find nothing bothers them and what month after withdrawal are you in? I think most people tapering can still eat what they want till they’re off. Just curious to know.

I have some decaf beans and I took yesterday and the day before.

It might have made my symptoms get a bit worse but I am not sure.

Coleslaw and grilled chicken wrap sends kook into outer space

DON'T DO IT!!!!

I am really not telling anyone not too….. just me venting over being a dummie. I was on a PPI for reflux for around 3 months. I’ve been completely off for about 3 weeks with NO issues. Tonight I tried to be brave. I ate a decent size bowl of cole slaw with my grilled chicken Caesar wrap. You know that one scene in the little mermaid, where Ursula the sea witch breaks the shell holding Ariel’s voice and you see this beautiful glowing ball going “AHHHHH-AH-AHHH”…… goes right into Ursula’s mouth and it’s like “BOOM” she’s all stunning for a disgusting sea urchin? Well that was me tonight with the cole slaw…. I was all “AHHHHH-AH-AHHH” while eating it because it was soooo good. And then an hour later I was like “BOOM” but it wasn’t in the stunning way. I realized with that “BOOM” that I didn’t swallow a beautiful glowing ball of shimmering goodness. I swallowed a big ball of Acid death! It BURNS!!!!!!!!! Why do Sea Urchins get the four leaf clovers?

Anyone have any reverse or strange reaction to the spice cumin?  and i just felt off! I believe I have read of other BBs suffering side affects from certain spices? Thanks for any feedback!

Kook loses it after trying mother’s new meatball sauce

Paprika and cayenne

Has anyone ever had reactions to either one of these?
I’m already in a wave and went to my moms and she really wanted me to try a bite of her new meatball sauce. It had both these things in it and I felt extremely worse afterwards. Genuinely curious if one of these things made me worse or it was just a coincidence.

Paprika is pretty tame. Hard to believe anything in there would rev you up. Cayenne is spicy. I suppose if you’re not used to the capsaicins, it could cause a reaction that the mind escalates.

There’s nothing specific about chile peppers that I’m aware of. I eat them pretty much daily.

Does your mother add MSG to her sauce?

BANANAS SENDS KOOK INTO NEVER NEVER LAND

Bananas

Before my rescue doses caused a setback I used to eat a lot of overripe bananas as they were beneficial for my GERD, which before this setback was one of my only real withdrawal symptoms. I ate one ripe banana today and it revved me up. Is there some theory on why this is the case? Could this be because of rapid changes in blood sugar level? Or is it because of tryptophan in bananas?

Food reactions

Hi.
I am really sensitive to food and react to literally anything i eat. 20 minutes after eating a meal the DP/DR and high anxiety start to come up and can last for even a couple of hours. I got kind of used to this and never really tried to do anything about it as I have not been eating sugar/foods high in glutamic acid/anything processed/foods high in histamine etc. anyway and cutting out even more foods is just impossible at this point. Also, i am extremely extremely skinny so that’s also why i can’t limit the food im eating. So i have a question: Is it bad for my healing to just continue eating like i always did and react to it heavily? I wonder if it causes even more excitotoxicity and damage my brain even more than it already is…

Hi amkn
Sugar is really bad for anybody’s brain, even not in wd.
It ramps me up to panic attack level now.

I’m super skinny too. Had lost sooo much weight. I can eat no sugar, gluten, caffeine, msg, processed food. But I’ve been able to put back 20 pounds by adding coconut oil, avocado, olive oil to my smoothies. I eat a lot of protein- nuts, eggs, peanut butter on a spoon. I have meat or fish with a potato for dinner. I found decent gluten free bagels at Aldi’s and Trader Joe’s. I slather them with real butter. I’ve recently been able to add dairy back into my diet, slowly, so cheese and milk is helping pack on the pounds.

Good for you ligma that you can still eat nuts meat etc.

I’m on the same boat. Can’t eat anything contains glutamate on top of everything you listed so nuts meat etc have to go.

Amkn,
It depends on how bad the reaction is for you. If you feel like you can still handle then balance the 2 sounds good. For me, each tiny wrong food put me in a life threatening situation and long lasting setbacks so I have no option.

I’m 5’5 and weigh less than 90 pounds now. Lost about 15 pounds during and after tapering.
