Its time that you decide what is best for you. We need to be healthy to control out P. Should you eat junk food every day then you have to know that your P will not improve. Make the choice

60 years. I was 14. I have at one time or another eliminated every category of food. I have had good times and bad no matter how I eat. I don't doubt that you are right but it is something so basic in my diet that I would need to stop everything for a period of time and then what. I am 75. Do I really want to put myself through that? It stresses me to even consider it. You folks who have figured it out are so much stronger than me. Wish I could do it.

Your diet may have something to do with it but in my case I was born with P. I don’t think there was much junk food for me in the womb.

I have since February given up wheat/gluten , cow dairy, sugar so no cakes, biscuits (used to be an addict!) bread and no processed food . I eat Vegetables and fruit, fish and chicken and goats Kefir to try and help my gut. Sadly as yet no improvement. My psoriasis is in fact worse as have it in new places also itchy in the evening. I am persevering though as before I have always given up when things don’t work in a few weeks .


Desley
Desley @desley

Don’t give up, Jenny. It does take time to see results and I know it is disheartening and depressing when you can’t see results or even more break outs when you are making these sacrifices...keep the faith and don’t lose heart. 👍


Michelle
Michelle @michelle1021

Desley is right jenny777. Don't give up just yet. Your gut is getting used to the new diet and you are busy detoxing it. You might get a few spots because of it and I know it will be stressful when you see them but give it a couple of weeks. Don't quit. You can do this. Sometimes we have to take a step back to move forward xx

I agree with others here on the thread - there may be a diet component for some people but nothing is universal. I wish people would stop looking at diet as 'the cure' - I am certain that there are different root causes for different people. I have tried the elimination diet (full in) and it made no difference in my P or PsA, though the other health benefits have been numerous. I would still recommend diet changes for anyone with P or PsA, but look at it as an improvement, not a cure.


 john,Hulk
john,Hulk @chewbacca

Hell Dennis , i know i would never say Diet/lifestyle changes is a cure as i know its not and there isnt one ,why i always say improvements that can be done by making changes,My psa has improved a lot compared to 2 years ago,Diet/lifestyle is good for general health for anyone and one can do 80% of the Diet/lifestyle and see an improvement in their condition or conditions in time , no cure no, improvement yes i agree :)

Cheers John! I'm new here but have seen your posts and you seem like a great guy. My angle is that diet and exercise should be your first line of defense. It's kind of obvious - eat better and exercise and you will feel better. And at the end of the day try things and do what works for you

Thanks Dennis and welcome to flaym :)

The danger to organs from the inflammation that comes with P was a popular topic during the last few years. I have not heard much about it lately. I was checked for food allergies many years ago and nothing found but I should probably cut my eating in half but hunger interferes. All things different for each of us but good health from clean eating and exercise probably helps all our parts. Moderation does not help Deprivation might. Ah well.

I dont think psoriasis can make one overweight as i dont battle against my weight ,I lost so much weight last year and was considered overweight but not obese or near that,mainly belly fat but that was down to my lifestyle on drinking and eating fatty foods,I knew years ago that was said about fat being left around the heart of psoriatics generally, If one changes bad habits say then they can improve their psoriasis and loose weight .When i am hungry i just eat whats good for me and not quick fix junk as i used to a couple years ago and before,i just have some nuts or a piece of fruit say.I dont feel deprived and now and again i have treats like my gluten free biscuits ,Majority of people are overweight in this day and age because of habits that have been learnt, i wish you all well :)

I have never gained weight from P. My P got worse when I gained weight and obviously the pina coladas contributed to that. I have P for almost 27 years and I think my weight is okay. Can lose a bit of weight though but as long as my P doesn't get worse then I'm good. I keep my diet healthy. Try to at least.
