Andrew Weil Anti-Inflammatory Diet

Postby lyndacarol » Sun Jul 21, 2013 3:03 pm

There are many points in Dr. Weil's diet with which I disagree – 40-50% in carbohydrates, for example. But for those interested in the anti-inflammatory aspect, I post this link to his diet: http://www.drweil.com/drw/u/ART02012/an ... atory-diet
My hypothesis: excess insulin (hyperinsulinemia) plays a major role in MS, as developed in my initial post: http://www.thisisms.com/forum/general-discussion-f1/topic1878.html "Insulin – Could This Be the Key?"

I have worked out IF ratings on a number of my meals, using the IF rating info available at nutritiondata.com - very useful and informative. the nutrient search tool lets you filter for high carb and low or no sugar.. and therefore presumably lower glycemic index, etc.

for example various beans, mushrooms, yams, shellfish... lots of things you wouldn't necessarily think of intuitively as sources of carbohydrate. eg I wouldn't have thought of chicken or beef as carb sources per se, and I wouldn't have guessed that chicken can deliver more grams of carbs per serving than beef, and so on.

all interesting stuff!
my approach: no meds so far - just nutrient-dense anti-inflammatory whole foods, and supplements where needed
