I started part of the anti inflammatory diet two weeks ago. I say part because I was only going on what I could find on the internet. I just purchased a book titled, The Anti-Inflammation Diet and Recipe Book by Jessica Black. Half the book is recipes which I desperately need. It's been hard, but with the other diet changes I've made, it seemed like just another step.
What I'm doing:
- No caffeine
- No sugar
- No processed foods
- No fast food
- No potato
- No tomato
- No rice, gluten or dairy (not really anti inflammatory- food allergy testing found out I am sensitive to it. Still eating butter.)
- Tons of veggies and fruits
- Lots of seeds and nuts
- Probably a bit too much meat
- Green tea with honey and a bit of soy creamer
What I still need to do:
- more fish (salmon and anchovies)
- more mushrooms
- no more pork
- no peanuts (peanut butter is my favorite food :( )
I am feeling better. Praise Jesus! I'm still not where I want to be, but the crushing fatigue has lifted. I've even had some moments when I felt 'normal.' I'm sure the better sleep and the T3 are contributing also. When I first started the diet, I thought I'd have anything I wanted on Thanksgiving. But, now that I'm feeling better, I'll be making some special food and sticking with it.
Questions for you guys:
Do you have any book recommendations on the anti-inflammatory diet?
Do you have any recipes or tips you can share?
God Bless you All!!
