I've been working for the past few months on the best diet plan for me & MS. I've learned a lot. And here's the hilarious part. There's a web site that pretty much summarizes all of it right here.
I did get the results of my ALCAT test, which I am writing up for posterity. I will post that here. I'm suffering some grief about letting go of vegetarianism.
I am amazed at how radically I have to change.
The MS diet is gluten-free, dairy-free, legume-free and low in saturated fats. Some meats are ok, some not. Then you get your own individual sensitivities tested and avoid those foods for 6 or so months, then introduce them back in on a rotating basis.
These are my "take a vacation for 6 or so months" foods, more or less in order of severity:
Yellow Dye #5
So, my vegetarian days are numbered and much of Simon and Garfunkel is out. A bunch of those are legumes so they won't be coming back into the mix, as I understand it.
I have found a Yahoo Group for people with MS who are following this food plan, so that has perked me up just a little bit.
If it helps me manage my MS, it is all worth it.
