I'm afraid I can't relate to all the sorrows which have been heaped upon you in recent months, but I can assure you of one thing from my own sorrows in life: a lead pill is not the answer.

The first place to start is to take your gabapentin each night so you can have relief from pain. We'll discuss the rest later on after you've stepped away from this explosive pronouncement. Now step away, okay?

I was reading what other poster's have to say about the amount of carb's a person should have with each meal. The dietician I spoke to , told me. 60 to 75 g. carb's each meal. (3 times daily) Plus between meal's and bed time snack 15 to 30 gram's of carb's. This seem's like a lot to me.

I wonder also....I know carb's are carb's. But... A man. for example..6ft 4, 225 pound's. That many carb's may not have the same effect as it would on someone..say..5ft 4, 130 pound's.

Carbs are not essential nutrients. Literally speaking, we could all thrive without eating ANY carbs, regardless of one's gender or size. All the vital nutrients can be found in low-carb foods; meat/poultry/fish, dark leafy greens, etc. There is no need to deliberately eat carbs at all, despite what the dietitians of the world have been endoctrinated to believe.

Yes, I believe that. A person does not need that many carb's. We could do better on half or a fraction of that many carb's.

Just the amount we get in the food you mentioned should be enough.

You missed it, you don't "need" any carbs. You do need glucose in your blood and your body has a built in means to provide it.

I'm reading a new book debunking the "fat makes you fat" myth and there is an interesting tale about a couple of white men who lived with the Inuit for a year and ate their diet, came out of it perfectly healthy. So they tried the same diet at home, eating pretty much all parts of the animal in order to get all the nutrients (including vitamin C). And it still worked!

So carbs are NOT required at all. It just takes your body a while to get used to not using theml You may get tried and depressed for a week or two, but after that you will feel GREAT. Just read more of this forum for success stories!

That was a very tough two weeks for me to get through, but I'm glad I did. :-)
