Well I let my daughter have some foods she shouldn't have yesteray. It was obivous that she was hurting today. She doesn't tell me, but I could tell. I am going to start testing her each week to see her pain. I hate to do that, but she just won't be honest with me. But I could tell this morning the way she walked. I know even though she is not 100% that diet does make a difference. I met a lady with a son yesterday at church who is 15. He has had rhumetoid arthritis since he was 5. He can't move his neck, he turns his whole body, he walks awkardly and his mom showed me his wrists and how deformed they were. He is on the same medication as my daughter and actually takes Humera as well. He even has to have shots in his joints sometimes. I know that if my daughter ate a normal diet that she would be that way too. I have seen her when she went to camp and ate a SAD diet. When she came home she could hardly walk, she was in so much pain. So back on the strict diet for her. I know she doesn't like it all the time and she gets jealous, but in the long run she will be a lot healthier. I may tell her about the boy, just to show her that diet does help.
E: 40 min. bodybuilding- chest, 35 min. stationary bike(HIIT)

I am trying to cut down on food at night. It makes more sense to me, because during the day you are burning more calories, and at night you start to slow down. So I am trying it out.
