Ah great, the weather is being kind to you! My skin has been the opposite this past 10-14 days. Red itching thickening on my remaining plaques. Until today! Looking quite a bit calmer. So weird. I can never explain it.

I appreciate you telling me what foods to avoid but what is there to left to eat.


Michelle
Michelle @michelle1021

Lol Ace. I felt the same when I joined Flaym. That's why I always say my diet is boring. I mostly eat veggies and meat or salads. I sometimes cheat by having macaroni & cheese or a steak topped with peppers, onion and avo. I sometimes eat take aways as well but I have been on my diet for so long that it doesn't make a difference if my food is boring or not. You can still have a great stew with sweet potato in it.


Ace
Ace @chris1623

That's bad I hate sweet potatoes. What meats are good to eat that won't trigger psoriasis.

mainly plant foods like leeks, carrots, green beans etc , chicken , venison, lamb turkey is okay but still acidic , vegan is the ideal.i eat raw + cooked veggies everyday, one gets used to it, it is a choice though, some changes in diet/lifestyle is better than none but, it is a choice a choice for everyone :)

I try to get sun but then I feel like the tin man without his oil can. I dry out so quick.

Sorry to hear this Ace, we are all here to help you and to improve your situation with this, its not easy to change diet,i know i found it really difficult, i eliminated foods over a 2 month period, it dosnt matter if it takes you months to eliminate certain foods,, theres plenty of time, it is a choice though Ace a choice for everyone, i wish you well
