Topic: Hello to everyone- big sigh of relief, I think I've found the place!
I read your pages and think I've found the solution to my illnes, thank goodness I found you!
I started Slimming World about 2 years ago, and lost 2stone and a bit in a year. Somewhere along the line, (and having not ever had this in 48 years) I started to get ill. I got EXTREMELY violent tummy cramps, aggressive diarhea and vomiting. (taken to emergency in agony at least 3 times) the pain was unbearable (it always starts at around 3am and is like total body purging). I had all tests, abdominal scans, and the camera down my throat and extensive blood tests, and nothing. I had to start working it out for myself. I'm sure it's not an allergy, I'm 50 so it would have happened before. I have also got very forgetful, very anxious, have tummy throbbing, and heart jumps too
We used to eat a very organic diet, so I think I will return to that.
It's not the fault of slimming world, they always recommend healthy eating, but I thought I could still enjoy lots of treats, but I think my intake of sweetners dramatically increased. I'm so glad I found this site, I can now begin to remove the sweetners from my life.
