Looks, itch, healthcare system
Good morning my lovely Flaymers. Hope you are well? I have been eating fish and veggies for a whole week. My P looks actually great. My P is flat, not flaky nor itchy and its skin color. Anyone else's P have the same effect from fish?

Yes, some fishes are good, but some fish may be bad. Sometimes my P flared up after eating fish but sometimes no effect. I have to detect which fish is good and which is bad.

Hello Michelle,pretty much what i eat most of the time :), My skin isnt great at the moment ,could be the cold? I like keep eating healthy all the time though, been 3 weeks on Liverel,no change as yet but i keep going unless skin gets worse ?Hopefully it will get better, I got 9 weeks to go on this to go ,I get some more of this Liverel at the weekend.I feel good generally eating cod, basa fish and veggies :)

that's one of the reason i take krill

Salmon is about the only fish I can eat. No flare ups. Veggies I have to force myself to eat them. Hope that continues to work for you Michelle!😎

I add turmeric, ginger, garlic a bit of rock salt in my veggies and some cinnamon and the veggies have a a good taste, i love my parsnips with butternut squash,its a good mix,Sometimes i have my veggies plain with my chicken or fish,I have always eaten veggies but over the last 2 years i have eaten a lot more with 12 to 14 portions of veggies a day,Its what our bodies like :)

Yes same here Md. I found that I definitely can't eat shell fish. Tuna is okay but not too much or I'll start itching. The only fish that I see is good for me is Skinless hake. Not a very attractive fish but the lemon tastes nice with it.
John, I think it's the cold as in summer your P gets much better and you still eat the same right? Give the liverel some time as you might see results within 6 weeks. I do hope it works for you then we can try it as well. I add turmeric, ginger and garlic too most of the food I eat and use himalayan salt.
Mark, I have never taste Krill (I think) lol. But will try it next time if I can find it here in SA.
Barry, you can spice up the veggies with turmeric and it will look more attractive too. Salmon is good for my P as well and I do like it but extremely expensive here in SA.

Thanks Michelle, I will give a flakey report soon if i see changes or not?, Yes i eat the same things all year round so, i will know if a difference by march as we are still in winter then, Thank you :)

I cannot each shell fish either it messed me up
16 Jan 08:36
True Leasha. Not only does it mess up our P but it's ugly too. I like my food being attractive ;) The only sea food I can eat is fish (Hake) and calamari. Even crumbed calamari is soft on my P.

I been eating basa fish and cod,I dint eat shellfish anyway ,yes my food looks healthy too, especially my fish curries with mountains of veg in the mix , I love salmon,hake and trout too,I worked on a fish farm for 5 months years ago , fishies every day, i made my own fishcakes, proper fish cakes that was more fish in them than anything else, wonderful :)
16 Jan 12:00
ah so you're a good cook. Sounds nice John. I thought fishcakes are 100% fish??? or is it like mcdonalds?
16 Jan 12:43
I love shellfish it doesn't affect me. My hubby however doesn't eat it normally.
17 Jan 02:57
I've got in the habit of eating fish almost every day for linch @ work, mostly salmon rolls that I make myself, occasionally cod, bass or trout, but tuna from the cafeteria when I don't make my lunch,I think it really helps, that & no (or very little) junk food or processed food, I also eat a lot more fresh fruit & veggies than ever before.
17 Jan 05:44
Ah Michelle,fish cakes purchased are rubbish, mainly just potatoes, Best make your own and use a lot of fish with parsley etc ,Hahaha Macdonalds geeeze rubbish,yes i can cook Michelle, I used to cook in hotel years ago though i dont cook anything adventurous since years ago as i eat mainly veggies , plain chicken or fish, thank you :) Great Darren, you eat well :)
17 Jan 08:31
That's great news Darren and very healthy diet you have. How do you make the salmon rolls?
17 Jan 08:56
I grille up a side of Salmon then slice it up cross section about 1" wide, warm up some thin 10" flour tortillas, spread a little habanero sauce on the tortilla place the piece of salmon on & roll up the tortilla, I have two of those along with carrot & celery stalks on the side (maybe a cucumber) along with a V-8 or other natural fruit juice every day at work for lunch.
17 Jan 09:27
That sounds very interesting Darren. The tortillas...doesn't it affect your P?
17 Jan 09:46
No, but I use the really thin ones
22 Jan 02:53
