I have been on an anti-inflammatory diet for 17 days. I noticed a big improvement the first week. I have lost five pounds of the prednisone weight I was dealing with since February. I am still having attacks but not the abdominal distention or squeeze on my ribs and sternum like I used to get. Besides it possible helping inflammation and the weight loss I am basically eliminating everything that was bad for me and putting me at risk for other health issues like diabetes and cardiac problems. I was already a vegetarian, now I'm usually vegan, gluten free, almost sugar free and eating tons of healthy stuff!
