unpacking the nutshell
example: best bet diet
A.Foods that contain proteins which have the potential to cause autoimmune reactions. These are: 1.All dairy products (e.g. milk, cheese, yoghurt)
2.Foods containing gluten grains (e.g. wheat, rye or barley)
3.Legumes (e.g. beans, soy, peanuts. peas)
OR figure out why your system might be overreacting to foods and fix it. i had had no dairy products for YEARS before ms dx and i still got it. my system was just broken with or without dairy. what these recommendations do, uniformly, is allow your body to redirect zinc intake to immune function vs dairy, gluten and phytate digestion.
B.Any food that causes an allergic reaction as determined by a body reaction or a blood test. These foods can cause increased intestinal permeability (a leaky gut) and increased immune reactions.
OR figure out why your system might be overreacting to foods and fix it. there is a very strong correlation between leaky gut and zinc status. actually, zinc is critical to the integrity of all kinds of body membranes, not just the intestines.
C.Candy, soft drinks and foods with a high sugar content. These foods alter the gut flora which in turn can cause a leaky gut and problematic immune reactions.
this is one instruction i can get a little more on board with.. note the zinc connection with glucose handling.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE ELIMINATE CATEGORY DOES NOT CONTAIN RED MEAT
A.Foods that contain saturated fat. Eat red meat (lean cuts) only once a week.
B.The intake of omega 6 polyunsaturated fat which are found in margarine, salad oils and many baked goods. Use olive oil (monounsaturated fat) for fat supply
C.Non-gluten grains such as corn and oats. Use mainly rice for grain products and eat these in moderation.
D.Alcohol consumption. At best, drink wine in moderation and completely avoid beer.
these i can definitely see. but red meat once a week is far from eliminating it. good nutrition in there to balance out what is found in other meats. grass fed organic beef is my choice - or as close as i can get to that anyway
local farm raised, not certified organic, and grass munchers augmented with standard feed. i'll take it over grocery store beef when i can!
A.Eat skinless chicken breast, game meat and fish for protein content. Fish such as salmon and mackerel also contain omega 3 polyunsaturated fat, which is very beneficial.
B.Eat lots of vegetables and fruits for carbohydrates and fiber.
C.Take a variety of supplements to bolster immune regulation, to increase anti-oxidant capacity and to avoid deficiencies. The recommended supplements are listed on the Supplement Page.
INCREASE GAME MEAT yay venison

totally agree re dumping processed foods. i consider them overseasoned junk food.
love greens and veggies, seafood, nuts, seeds, berries, all so yum!!!
