Become a vegan! I have never met an over weight vegan.
Actually it is easy to be a vegan and be over weight because of the high carbohydrate content in the dietUh-oh - red meat, because of it's high saturated fats, are very much frowned upon by nearly every ms diet, including the well known Swank Diet. Dr Swank saw many ms patients remain stable by merely eliminating most saturated fats. He actually did his own trials on real patients back in the '60's. However, I believe an occasional serving of GRASS FED red meat may be ok, since it's higher in omega-3 and lower in saturated fats.
Actually, eating a diet high in meat and eliminating carbs, wheat, nuts, legumes and dairy will GUARANTEE weight loss. I am currently following a diet and is mainly red meat, but only 100% grass meat
. 100% grass fed meat has perfectly balanced fats that are extremely healthy, as good for you as wild caught salmon and tuna, which are recommended for those with MS because of their high Omega 3 content.. And although virtually every MS diet says NO to meats and other high saturated fat foods, which I agree, they make no mention of 100% grass fed meats which are high in Omega 3 fat and other healthy fats, and perfectly balanced for optimum health and as healthy for you (maybe healthier) as wild caught salmon and tuna. I have more energy than at any time in my life and have been feeling noticeably better, and continue to improve.
I am following the REAL DIET OF MAN, which basically is:
A. Each food item consumed must be low glycemic. (High glycemic foods are foreign to body function and cause fungal issues that negatively impact the body.)
B. Each food item consumed must not contribute to the Omega-3 deficit. (This is critical for a strong immune system.)
C. Each food item consumed must provide 90% or more of the nutrients required for optimal body function. 100% is best. (Why eat foods that are empty?)

I feel like a living science experiment because I am going against popular diet beliefs. But after extensive research, I believe a diet high in 100% grass fed meats with the elimination of just about everything else, especially grains, may be the key to good health for those with diseases of inflammation.
Also, if you are going to start consuming grass fed meats, ONLY buy those that say 100% grass fed
