Do diet friendly neurologists exist?

Due to the lengthy times required to wait to see a neurologist here..6 months from probable diagnosis to actually seeing one. I was left with plenty of time to research.

Does anyone out there have ...

egg whites?

Are egg whites ok on the swank or best bet diet? I know the swank diet says no more than 1 egg/day and nore more than 3/week, and I'm assuming because of saturated fats, but egg whites contain no saturated fat and it doesn't say anything about them so I don't know if egg whites are ok to eat unlimited?

Anyone know?

Thanks

veganism - jimmylegs can we get your input?

Jimmylegs,

I remember you said that you were vegan for many years, but can't find the exact thread. You mentioned something relatively negative about your vegan experience. I've been vegetarian for about 7 years and vegan for about 12 months or so. Your post made me think whether I should rethink my veganism. Could you give your personal experience on being vegan and why you decided to stop? I'm aware that deficiencies are possible, so ...

Confused Fish vs no Fish

I was planning on eating herring everyday for the inflammation benefits and possible healing for the nerves. However, there is conflicting views that MS is caused by mercury poisoning. Is the risk of eating fish everyday outweight the idea of mercury poisoning being the cause of MS?

How do you get enough calories?

Alright' i have been doing diet research, and i need to get 2500-3000 calories a day to prevent being anorexic at least ( i have fast metabolism). I really want to try a healthy MS diet, but i don't see how i could possibly get 2500-3000 calories eating lean meat, fruits, veggies and nuts (WHILE keep it low fat). Anyone have advice? (avoiding dairy, gluten and legumes)
