Hello everyone and happy new year,
Been quiet for a while as I'm doing relatively ok without any treatment at all at the moment but now got a question.
I got talking to a fitness trainer in early December at a party I was at and she mentioned that she trained a few people with arthritis and that they have found the Banting diet helpful ( it's a high fat, low carb diet avoiding certain things like seed or vegetable oils). I think it's very similar to Paleo or Atkins. For Christmas my other half who had been with me at that party got me the book "real meal revolution" that the trainer had suggested. I read all the info in there and although it seems to make a lot of sense in general, it is mainly aimed at people trying to lose weight ( which wouldn't do me any harm but I'm not much overweight) and only mentions diabetes a bit and suggests it can help with other health problems.
So now I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with this. I have started it last week and it seems quite easy in general, just a bit "faffy". I'm not expecting miracles but if it keeps me off medication and from getting worse I'd be very inclined to keep this up.
