Original review:I've suffered from chronic migraines and sinus problems for years. I tried meds, acupuncture, worked with a naturopath and tried an elimination diet, but couldn't stop the migraines or find any specific triggers. I finally stumbled across the book 'Heal your headache, the 1-2-3 program' and for the first time I was able to clearly associate my diet with my migraines. I gave up all kinds of food and had success as long as I avoided the giant list of food per that book. I was kind of concerned though, as there was very little discussion about sugar, carbs, or hypoglycemia in that book. It implied that a bowl of ice cream was fine, as long as it was vanilla instead of chocolate. I've been reading and researching anti-inflammatory diets and found more and more compelling scientific info discussing the benefits of cutting back on processed carbs and instead eating unprocessed, whole foods. I even tried the SCD diet that cuts out processed food and complex carbs, but permits plenty of honey and fruit. That didn't solve my headaches.I then came across this book. In addition to recommending an anti-inflammatory paleo-ish diet, this book recommends limiting carbs to under 150 grams a day (and frequently much lower). I had never really focused on my carb count but frequently had sugar spikes from sweets and grains, which left me feeling sick and woozy. I had never associated my sinus pressure or headaches with elevated blood sugar. I always made an effort to balance carbs with fat and protein to slow down the insulin spike, but still had enjoyed the carbs. I realized I still had been consuming lots of carbs, which still raised my blood sugar. Apparently the standard processed food diet involves 250-350 carb grams a day.
