  1. I am 63 years old and aged 49 I was diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome, ADHD and Obsessive tendencies. I used to suffer a multitude of anxieties knowing for a long time that sugar has been the destroyer of good health in my life but no matter how hard I tried I could not find a way to stop myself from eating sweets, chocolates, cakes. I know what you are going to say, you are describing me. But am I, perhaps I am. But with me if I'm at a party there will be 20 fresh cream meringues sitting on the table I will eat the lot then go on to anything else on the table not concerning myself to getting told off for not thinking about the other guests let alone family or friends. I drive a lot and the same thing would occur it wouldn't be a case of buying a bag of sweets or a bounty or Twix it would be about six of each and making myself absolutely sick by eating the lot in a matter of a few minutes. In regard to my relationship with Autism I suffered on a daily basis a host of anxiety attacks, I could easily draw attention to myself, get into a situation and blame it on my autism condition as being the culprit. I used to spend a fortune going from one therapist to another who would put me on a different course of nutrition none of which would help me kerb my enthusiasm to not cutting down on sugar. I had my fair share of other ailments like acute Kidney Failure, thankfully I recovered fully although Doctors tell me they will always be an injured organ in my body. I was also born with a congenital condition in my arms that means I have weak wrists can't do certain exercise regimes, will never have huge biceps because I can't bend my arms or touch my shoulders with my hands. But this I consider a minor irritant. Ten Months ago I began bouldering and I find I can use some of the positions of the boulders to help me mimic pullups. I even had done a course of advanced self-hypnosis(autogenics) years ago and this was unfortunately to no avail. Six weeks ago I read an article about if your Gut is unhealthy you might as well forget about all of your health and fitness goals and I have come to the conclusion that this is what exaggerated or amplified all the sensations my brain gives out that makes it impossible for me to achieve any form of long term well being in my life. That unless I can make my gut healthier it would be pointless having any fitness, nutrition goals because I wouldn't be getting the full nutritive benefits from the nutrients I was consuming. This time I was introduced to a Nutritionist who herself has a chronic illness to which there is no cure, Lymes disease. She gave me a questionnaire to fill out and prescribed me to take Vitamin D(not every day), Vitamin B12, Vitamin K. Eat as many fermented foods as well as making my own Yoghurt, this I am yet to do. I now every morning and sometimes at night take Bentonite, Psyllium Husks, Colostrum, Collagen, Sauerkraut, Already in the six weeks since I began my new course of treatment I have seen a much calmer digestion. Through eliminating certain foods for instance I enjoy coffee in the morning but if there is any evidence of any sugar in my body it will be hell time in the area of my bowels. No sugar I can drink as much coffee as I like. I also because of my OCD have a tendency to train very hard to the point of overtraining. Now I can recognise when I am doing this and take action before I couldn't. During the past six weeks, I have had two ten days in a row without any added sugar in my diet. Only a couple of brownies when I needed some extra energy. With my new nutrition plan, I am finding joint aches and pains are barely noticeable. My sleeping habits are more improved, there are less anxieties drowning me and perhaps my new year's resolution will give me a rewarding present, reversing the many symptoms of autism and related conditions and even give my ego a gift, a flat stomach. So tomorrow I will tell you whether my first day without sugar actually occurred in a very big way, where at a family party where be a huge variety of desserts and my goal is not to dip into any of them, shock my siblings and children who realise under the ideal conditions any dream is possible, is reality and not fantasy!
