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)

I have read articles that suggest avoiding dairy products for MSers. I am heavily addicted to Tea & consume around 7-8 cups. And unlike in western countries, Indian tea tends to contain good amount of milk. So I would like to know from people what has been their personal experience on dairy products. Does it help?

Thank you ...

symptoms with food intake


Before I post, let me give some background. In my last 16 years with MS, I have seen that during days when I change travel I generally tend to get less symptoms. The moment I settle down and continue with my routine work, I see that symptoms slowly come back. I have always felt the reason could be due to better body exercise and relaxed mind.

I started thinking whether this is all due ...

I was diagnosed with MS in 2004 after 2 MRIs, I had a lumbar puncture which came back negative and since then have been following a gluten free diet. I didn't really have many symproms until 2008 when my father who I was very close to was diagnosed with a brain tumour a week after I had my only daughter. The following year, he was in and out of hospital and each time I was ...

Nutrition Book?

Does anyone know of any good nutrition books? I'm interested in learning about the positive and negative effects of certain foods, supplements and anything else we put in our bodies. One single book (hopefully) full of all the information a person needs to make an educated choice in their health.

I want to understand what each vitamin does and what gluten, sugars and all that other stuff does to our body (other than the obvious). ...

Confused about diets

A few months ago, I had done some research on the Paleo Diet and my husband and I started following that diet for a while. I was doing fairly well, but we had a family crisis and we 'fell off the diet wagon', so to speak. It seems as though the Best Bet Diet is very close to the Paleo diet and is just slightly less restrictive in that some select grains can be eaten ...

Processed foods may increase risk Of Multiple Sclerosis


Increased production of certain types of industrially produced foods - specifically of margarine, processed meat and sausage, jam and marmalade, chocolate and chocolate confectionary, sugar confectionary and beer - correlates statistically with an increased incidence of multiple sclerosis (MS).

This conclusion from analysis of data from seven EU countries is presented today by the German epidemiologist Dr. Klaus Lauer at the 20th Meeting of the European Neurological Society (ENS) in Berlin. ''This data is ...

So, we have had our ELISA test results back today and while there are many things we expected there are a few suprises:
