I am well acquianted with Swank's diet, I meant neurologists, on an avarage basis. Your neuro for example. Or Carole's neuro, or any other.
Not that having healthy eating habits isn't good for anybody, ms or not.
For me personally it is very difficult to cut off almost evth and to watch every bite I take, it is 1st, annoying and makes me feel bad(neuro says it's more harmful for ms to torture my psyche with what to eat and not), and 2nd it's very time consuming to figure out what to eat, to prepare it (moreover I don't live alone). In the beginning I tried it and I was one very sad and depressed person. BUT if it was generally accepted by doctors, even though not scientifically proved, I would keep the diet.
Problem with ms is that if you are improving or in remission being on the diet, you can never tell whether it is the diet or just ms, as it is unpredictable and nobody can predict its progression with certainty.
Don't you know people who got worse although keeping the diet?
I was thinking, if virtually starving was the miracle , then all ms-ers would be doing that and be healthy! No ms problem, no nth. And Swank would have proven it scientifically and won the Nobel prize.
Don't get me wrong, I am absolutely for healthy eating habits, but not to be allowed to have my favourite pizza for instance is just killing me
