I just joined this group.... I have recently been diagnosed with Mitral Valve Prolapse Syndrome, which explains so many physical ailments throughout my life, that I can't even get into it. Without boring any of you with the details, I will say that one of the main problems with MVPS is constant fatigue, which I have been struggling with for many years. In my research, I found out that people with this syndrome are very sensitive to blood sugar levels, and should eat low-carb, high protein foods with a low glycemic index.
Having never dieted in my life, my diet is pretty much all carbs, though I do stay away from sugar. I eat cereal in the morning, usually a sandwich for lunch, and a whole lot of pasta for dinner. My snacks are usually apples or fat-free yogurt. Help! Is there any quick suggestions you all could give a newbie like me? Maybe a good cookbook you could suggest? My biggest struggle is breakfast and snacks, though any help will do.
Also, I don't have a whole lot of time to prepare foods because I work full time, go to school, and am at the gym 4 nights a week. Thank you!!!!
