Anti-Inflammatory Diet?
marybethg posted:
Is anyone familiar with the Anti-Inflammatory Diet and if so did it help. Am just curious as I have some arthritis. I am a senior and thought perhaps I might give it a try and see if it helps with some of my ailments.

Any feedback would be appreicated.

Hi Marybeth,Most of us are of the opinion that oil, sugar,meat,dairy,eggs and animal products are inflammatory.So we eat a low fat whole foods plant based diet that features potatoes, greens,beans,fresh vegetables,fruit,brown rice,oatmeal,100% whole grains.I recommend following a combination of the John McDougall/Joel Fuhrman diet.

The diet toned down my inflammation a good bit.My HsCRP(a measure of inflammation) went from over 2 to less than 1/10 when I changed to potatoes as my main starch and adopted a plant based deit."The Starch Solurion" by John McDougall is a good book to read first.

You will also need to supplement with B-12.

Good luck.

jc, was there another starch that caused inflammation?

jc3737 replied to max9821's response:
Other than sugar and processed starches I can't think of any whole food starches that are inflammatory.

Potatoes are the one starch I have found to be the most anti-inflammatory.
