Default Re: Can we talk about anti-inflammatory diets?

Sugar makes me hurt. Like arthritis in my hands mostly. I've been trying to give it up for years. I'm not making much forward progress, but it's become extremely apparent that it's definitely sugar that causes the pain.

I've been intermittent fasting for 2 years. So much of my pain is gone. I eat in a 6 hour window every day and I only have plain water or plain coffee outside of that time. Pain areas that have resolved: scar tissue, knee, bunion, Achilles tendon, arches, elbows, carpel tunnel, and hip. Now I only deal with pain in my hands if I binge on sugar.

The only thing I know about autoimmune diets is that I probably would not be successful sticking to one!
