i do my own thing with diet and supplements and have had great success overall. makes sense for me because i was severely misnourished prior to dx.
i don't do the best bet aspects re removing certain foods because i removed so many foods prior, and that's how i got sick in the first place. my approach is more about balance and healing. i don't do the electrical stimulation stuff a la wahls
let's see, dinner tonight was a bowl of homemade vegetarian chili with verboten beans and corn for complete protein, lots of other veggies, and 5 tidbits of leftover steak. that meal by itself is a mildly inflammatory combination.
but i also ate about a cup of sweet potato and a cup of kale over the course of the day today, both of which are strongly anti-inflammatory blow any slightly inflammatory tendencies of the chili right out of the water.
sweet potato and kale are in line with the wahls protocol by and large, i think. perhaps with the exception of the restriction where brightly coloured veg don't count if they are root vegetables, think i saw something like that somewhere.
i think you can make ms diets work without going ape on the never-ever stuff. 'hardly ever' restrictions? yes, for sure.
here's a list of stuff i rarely if ever have:
candy, chocolate, ice cream, store-bought cakes cookies or other baked goods (except something like sprouted whole grain bread), juice, canned goods, processed foods such as frozen dinners, pre-seasoned meat or fish, commercial salad dressing, margarine, kraft-style peanut butter (the kind with hydrolized oils and added sugar etc) you get the idea. the kind of things you would be less likely to find at a farmer's market.
i could work my way down to what i always have but it's pretty basic. whole foods, such as you probably could find at a farmer's market, adequate hydration, more anti-inflammatory foods than not, and enough supplements to make my bloodwork look like that of a healthy person. when i do it right, i feel pretty great.
that's not to say it is the same for everyone, though.
i think even my approach would sound like pretty hard work to some people, so i guess everything is a matter of degree.
at the end of the day, to each their own!
hope that helps
my approach: no meds so far - just nutrient-dense anti-inflammatory whole foods, and supplements where needed
