I've just recently been diagnosed with eds & pots, have always had symptoms for both my whole life but only now after a long string of failed doctors unknowing what's wrong with me I can now begin my journey.
My main issue has always been stomach pain, but 7 weeks ago my back collapsed on me, I have discovered I have degenerative disk disease in 3 of my disks and I have 3 completely prolapses.
I have just been put on the waiting list to have surgery on my spine, so in the mean time the surgeon has suggested I keep really healthy to keep my bmi down before surgery- currently have a bmi of 28-28.5
From the eds and POTS diagnosis I was told by a nutritionist that was with me in the app that I have to cut out 99% of carbs. So no pasta, bread &I rice ect
I need to intake more salt. LOTS more veggies I need to have a very colourful plate
If I have anything sugary (whether it be a good dark chocolate or an orange) I need to balance it with a couple of nuts.
Has anyone got any suggestions on an easy dinners/lunches that I can do that will keep me full up! But not just pasta salad, or rice salad as I can't have them.
It's all new to me, I am healthy anyway, but I have always incorporated carbs into my meals
Help pretty please
