CFS patients appear to be alcohol intolerant. Other food products often rec= ommended against include caffeine, sugar and nutrasweet. Since in many patients it a= ppears that the immune system is over-active, it may be more important than usual to ta= ke nutritional supplements to replenish burnt up reserves. Many patients have or develop food sensitivities, and in these cases relief= may be found by avoiding foods that prompt problems. Patients tend to gain weight and th= ey don't have vigorous exercise available as a counterbalance, so diet needs to be m= onitored with this in mind.
