These are a few things I’ve discovered in order to help alleviate symptoms of SBS and allow for better food tolerance.
-Eat six small meals throughtout the day.
-Limit concentrated sugars like candies, cookies, soda, juice and syrup.
-Try to eat a source of protein at each meal, such as poultry, red meat, eggs, tofu, nuts, milk, yogurt, cheese or peanut butter.
-Don’t drink fluid with meals, instead drink 30-60 minutes before or after meals.
If you have troube maintaining weight, I found that sugar-free nutritional supplements like sugar-free Carnation Instant Breakfast. (avoid Boost, Ensure, and Scandishake products as these will set off SBS)
-Eat more soluble foods: cooked carrots, oats, spinach, pears…
-Increase protein in the diet.
-Limit fluid consumption during meals. Drink liquids 30-40 minutes before or after meals instead of with meals.
-Sit upright while eating.
Rays are lookin good. My home team. Looking forward to David Price pitching Sunday!

The Tampa Bay Rays announced on Sunday that they have called up top outfield prospect Wil Myers, ending days of speculation. He will join the team in time for a day-night doubleheader on Tuesday against the Boston Red Sox.
Myers’ arrival in Tampa Bay has been highly anticipated ever since he served as the main asset acquired by the Rays in a trade involving starter James Shields last offseason. The 22-year-old Myers was ranked the No. 4 prospect in all of baseball by Baseball America before the start of the season.
In 63 games with Triple-A Durham this season, Myers hit .283 with a .354 on-base percentage, .514 slugging percentage, 14 homers and 57 RBI. He has been on fire over the past three weeks, batting .347 with 10 homers and a 1.126 OPS since May 23.
“He’s going to play a lot,” Rays manager Joe Maddon said of Myers, according to the Tampa Bay Times. “Of course you don’t bring somebody like that up to sit around.”
Luv my Rays....feeling bad for David Price.
David Price puts in a solid eight innings and Kyle Farnsworth allowed no hits in one inning of relief work as Tampa Bay stops Toronto!!! Bottom of the 10th and Luke Scott walks with the bases loaded, forcing LONGO with the winning run. GOOD JOB RAYS!!
Cobb and Rays Begin Series against Padres tonite!! GO RAYS!!
Are you kidding me?! What stadium can you go to and a cool 72 degrees and your dry when it storming and raining out! ??!
Im still stuck on the phrase "....with James Shields gone....." Bummer But I still think our pitching will be outstanding this year. How can it not....we have Cy Young Award winning David Price!!
Ahhhh. Spring Training! My favorite time of year. Strange that it almost goes hand in hand with hockey this year. haha. Ok, technically hockey practice began here in Tampa Bay this week. I said almost. Usually, we go to hockey games up until the time Spring Training hits. I know this because my sister and I are baseball/hockey nuts. Her birthday is March 27th. So usually we go from hockey directly to Spring Training. This year will be different. I say, BRING IT ON!!!
After a dreary off-season, baseball comes back to life in mid February when pitchers and catchers report to Spring Training. Countdown is at: 27 days!!! I grew up going to Spring Training at Al Lang Stadium in St Petersburg, FL with Grampa and family watching the St. Louis Cardinals. In the old days, players really used spring training to get in shape for regular season. Now, everyone seems to arrive in great physical condition. This is a time for players to compete to make the team to avoid going to the minors.
Grampa taught me there’s not only no crying in baseball, but also that there’s no National or American League in preseason baseball. Instead there are major league teams playing in the Florida in the Grapefruit League. Out west, its known as the Cactus League.
We’re lucky enough we can go to Charlotte for Rays games.
Not a bad drive. We’ll go to a couple of New York games in Tampa (when the Rays play of course), and maybe pick up a couple Royals games in Clearwater, or even to Dunedin. However, Dunedins field seems to not have as much shade!!! Made for a hot day last year.
My favorite time of the year!!! Im sooooo excited. : ) Lets Go Rays!!
Always luv Carl Crawford. He's an ex- Ray don't ya know! He sure has struggled since he left us. Hope he has a better year this year.
