I lost too much weight at first because I went too far: I stopped eating eggs, dairy products, and sugar along with removing all starch. I was miserable. I eventually figured out that none of those were causing me AS problems. As I added those back into my diet, my happiness and weight went up to good levels. I still do not eat any starch, but I really don't miss it much now.

AS symptoms started 1991. Official dx in 2006 with HLA-B27+, fused SIJ, bone spurs in back, extreme rib/hip pain, and other family with SpA. Started Enbrel in 2006 with good results, but stopped in 2010 due to nerve damage (MS) from it. Getting good results with no-starch diet since 2011.
