Great to see all the replies and others on BBD. Yes Ernst, other people can be dismissive of MS diets, but from the sound of how well your wife is doing it's a real endorsement of BBD. I did do weights but in the 2 years I've let everything slip - started back doing my physio routine to build up my weak right side.
I am feeling encouraged, every day a tiny bit more energy, managed to do yoga last night for first time in ages. Time with my 1 year old son is more "do-able" with more energy. It's a huge incentive to keep with BBD, looking at him - I want to be able to run around after him and have fun. He's a VERY active little lad, thank goodness, and I have to be in top form to keep going.
So far I have actually put on weight this time
. I think that I was planning my return to bbd so well I had gf/soy free/low sugar/dairy free/legume free soups and cakes made and frozen, nut butters, rice bread & rice milk in stock etc, so I am less hungry than the last time I started - I didn't really plan as well then and there were lots of starving moments! :
