I’m one of the lucky ones for whom a simple switch in my diet has altered my health and basically cured me of my ankylosing spondylitis. But I also know that many people have run into problems on the no-starch diet and it’s ineffective for them for whatever reason. Understanding why this diet works for […]
I am all too familiar with what you’re going through: you have Ankylosing Spondylitis and you’re in the middle of a flare. You feel horrible. Your spouse, significant other, friends, parents, and siblings all mean well but they can’t possible understand what you’re going through. It’s not just the pain. If it were only just […]

This is seriously my favorite pot roast recipe ever. I’ve adopted a recipe I originally found on the great Mark Sisson’s website and have made it my own. The spice rub is Mark’s, but the rest is my own take. Give it a try and you’ll never look at pot roast the same way again. […]
For those of you who think that your dietary cure to Ankylosing Spondylitis has to be a long, boring story filled with dry-as-sand chicken breast and iceberg lettuce or bacon and eggs every day I beg to differ.

About this website
My name is Bob Connors and I have successfully treated my autoimmune disease, ankylosing spondylitis, using a No-Starch diet. Why not use your seemingly awful diagnosis (incurable genetic disorder...fun!) as an opportunity to realize your own optimal health? I'm 100% medication-free and am using diet alone to control my AS. I've become stronger and healthier than I ever was before my diagnosis by adhering to a whole foods (if you can't kill it or pick it, don't eat it!) diet and healthy lifestyle. If you have spinal fusions then unfortunately the damage is irreversible, but I'm living proof that diet can be used to avoid any further flares. So, in effect, you will have cured yourself of AS. Read on and feel free to email with any questions, or submit a question above in the "General Questions" tab and I'll answer asap. I honestly see my AS diagnosis as net positive on my life. Good Luck! Bob Connors firstname.lastname@example.org
