Multiple Sclerosis Diet
The optimal Multiple Sclerosis Diet is a plant-based wholefood Multiple Sclerosis Diet , supplemented with fish. In practice, there are so many hidden saturated fats in foods that we simply have to make a conscious choice to have none at all knowingly. Swank recommends aiming at less than 20g/day of saturated fat, but also points out that those people taking between 5 and 10g do even better. Given the evidence that saturated fat is harmful, why take any in at all. In addition, there is the work of nutritionist Colin Campbell, author of The China Study, who, among many others, argues that the best food for human health is a plant-based wholefood Multiple Sclerosis Diet . I think that should be the goal for people with Multiple Sclerosis (and really for optimal health for everybody).
Foods That Should Not Be Eaten
So for people with Multiple Sclerosis foods to avoid are:
- Meat, including processed meat, salami, sausages, canned meat.
- Eggs except for egg whites.
- Dairy products; that is, avoid milk, cream, butter, ice cream and cheeses. Low fat milk or yoghurt is not acceptable. Cow’s milk and dairy products are best avoided altogether as the protein is likely to be as much of a problem as the saturated fat, given recent evidence. Soy products or rice or oat milk are good substitutes.
