I really don't get what you are griping about. I don't see that my diet is that much different than yours. If it's not helping you and you aren't willing to lower the carbs a bit more to see if that makes a difference--don't do it! I tried mega doses of vitamin C and didn't see any difference. I tried glucosamine and chondroitin and didn't see any difference. I tried Tulle heel cups and didn't have any relief. I tried Birkenstocks and while they did give my arch support, they cause my arch to ache after wearing them for a few hours. I tried iceing and I felt like it caused more tightness and aching. I KEPT looking and trying different things until I found something that worked for me---and I didn't write any nasty messages shooting down the ones that didn't work for me---maybe they will help someone else. Every couple of months someone new will bring up a question about a lower carbohydrate diet helping PF. I answer these posts the best I can because it is something that has helped me immensely. Invariably, a NEW 'diet police' steps up to the plate and takes it upon themself to lambast low-carbing. I am getting really tired of having to defend myself when all I am trying to do is answer questions that may help someone else relieve their PF pain. YOU don't need to leave, Robin---YOU are still looking for something to make YOUR pain go away. I'm the one who no longer needs to take this abuse.
