Can I still eat carbs????

Recommended Posts

m1h2p3

I used to be a college athlete and now that I am not I still love to go to the gym and work out and stay in shape, and for this reason it is like I NEED to eat carbs because they provide your body with energy. My brother in law majored in nutrition and physical education and he says that your body needs carbs to function otherwise it will mess with your metabolism and slow it down drastically.

But I know that carbs are high in arginine... the bad bad thing for people with H. So... any advice for what I should do...

Can I keep eating carbs here and there and incorporate something into my diet that will even out arginine and lysine?

Or should I just cut carbs out all together and see if I become OB free for a while?

Foods affect people differently

I have found that I can eat pretty much anything I want without triggering an out break. So you might want to experiment to see what foods, if any, trigger out breaks for you.

And definitely get Lysine supplement pills. I have been taking it for years with no side affects.

Good luck!

      Any advice on on how i can change the way she thinks of her insecurities in the event I ever see her again or hang out with her or do you guys think that it's better too just walk away. The truth is though i never met another girl like her before and she was fine with me having herpes i could tell by the she reacted too it . How do you change the way someone views them self that has low self esteem.

      Note @Asr624 that an IgM result does not confirm a herpes diagnosis. Was the rash swabbed as well?

      Yes it's entirely possible that he didn't know and just now gave it to you. I've been with my husband almost 19 years and he was recently tested and is still negative. It's still possible of course that I could give it to him at any point. Sounds like you have a strong marriage and there is no reason this needs to be an issue other than a minor annoyance. I have 2 healthy children and have had no related medical issues due to HSV.

      I have been with him and didn’t tell him and now I can’t tell him because I know it would ruin any chance of reconciliation. I don’t want to live with this and I don’t want to live without him

      I am so sorry that happened to you. No one deserves that. Praying for you.
