Question: diet and diet slipup

I'm fairly new to ms, got the DMD treatment in place and now working on the right diet. I have rosacea so I've gone through many anti-inflammatory litterature on diet.

My question is: if you have yourself under a good ms-friendly diet, how much does it take for you to feel a slipup in your diet:

- do you feel it after one bad meal? the next day, much later?

- do you have to skip the diet for several days, several weeks to have it impact your ms?

Just curious. I'm so used with Rosacea to pay the price the next day that is was quite easy to figure out which food to stay away from.

Thanks in advance for sharing your experiences!

The best thing you can do is to go to a nutritionist. They will be able to help you adjust your diet. Not all these diets out here is one fit all.

I go to a nutritionist and it has helped me adjust my diet. The diets that are out there didn’t work for because for one I knew I didn’t eat half of the things the diets wanted me to eat and the others I would’ve starved to death by the time I got up from the table. I don’t fad diets. I never believed in jumping on the bandwagon for every new craze that came along

Thank you for sharing your experience. This is what I was trying to understand. Now, maybe, I know a bit more about what to look for.

Excellent question and I’m very curious about answers! I’ll report my own diet experience later (gotta run...).

The diet I am on for my MS is lean proteins like pork, chicken, and seafood. I eat grilled or air fried green vegetables and dark red fruits. It is no big deal if you slip in a ham burger now and then or a piece of cake or pie. You just stick to it. It helped lose the weight I put on take a 5 day IV steroid drip that put on 60 lbs. Good luck to you in your pursuits.

Cameleon, be very careful eating pork, & sea-food, pork has shistomiosis parasites that can go into our brains &make us very worse, & sea-food has a very scary toxic level of Mercury in it & 2011 cumalative Radiation from Fukishima's (Japan) Nuclear Plants blowing up! That will be here all over the globe for Hundred's of thousands of years! All organic chix okay with no anti-biotic cage free. & bout Cow, our Antibodies cannot handle cow, they attack it's enzyme as foreign & cause an inflamation or exaserbation. So, be careful. Even & especially in RRMS. This was said in Care & Love for ya k.💗❤💙 Blessings---Jazmine🌹💜Rose

Thank you, Jasmine. I am fully aware of issues of any kind of meat if it isn't prepared properly. I know how to cook pork so it is safe to eat and I only buy it from butchers who get it from animals from local ranches. And the mercury amount in seafood is mostly political crap. Yes, there is mercury in seafood and always has been, but it is still considered one of the best sources on low fat protein. I need the protein as I have a highly demanding job physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. It has worked for me for 15 years. It may not be for everyone, but it is for me. :)

"Healing Multiple Sclerosis" books says no pork, but I didn't know why. Thanks for sharing!

Hi anaishunter! I revised what I eat a year ago in an effort to be more healthy. It’s what works for me not any specific diet plan. If I eat something that isn’t part of my normal regime, it generally doesn’t cause an MS related problem. For example, I eat small meals so when I eat a large one, I pay a price.

Ahhh....I’m not sure what I do would be considered a “good MS diet”, although being in ketosis is anti-inflammatory. I’ve really tested the waters and can feel the life sucking fatigue and drop in IQ points within an hour, maybe less, if what I ate was stupid. I’m usually back to normal the next day, and if not, there are easy fixes.

Hi. I really just eat more veggies, stay away from soda completely, try to reduce my sugar intake and exercise. It sure has helped with energy. 😊❤🌷

Foods with Vitamin D are very helpful. Tuna Fish, Cottage cheese Oatmeal and

cereal with flax in it. Drinking a lot of water. Try to stay away from soda.

Hope that helps.

I know I’m a little late joining this conversation, but I have felt next day symptoms if I eat too much salt in my diet...or have a total binge (which usually occurs with extreme fatigue and are infrequent). I try to stick with my routine, mostly paleo-ish. 😊

I have been following The Best Bet diet along with my husband for a few weeks now and haven't slipped up

My husband however, went out and had a small vanilla shake on his lunch break.

He told me that an hour later, the pain in his shoulders was back with a vengeance.He doesn't have MS, but does have arthritis and bursitis in his shoulders.

As for me,nothing that extreme but I do notice a bit more energy and less cog-fog.

If that is all I get from this,I'll take it!:)
