@A MyMSTeam Member You can have red meat on the Wahls diet but it should be grass fed. The diet is really more about increasing veggies. You need to eat 9 cups of veg a day. People make shakes to eat this much. I don't. It is non dairy and gluten. You can have carbs but not refined, processed carbs. Think of how your grandparents ate. You are just adopting that kind of whole food diet. The OMS diet is pretty much vegan + fish plus lifestyle changes (exercise/meditation). It is hard to follow consistently. Good luck with it :-)

Slimming World Diet works for me. No silly Diet Foods, just fresh food, nothing processed so super healthy. Managing to loose without workouts too, so impressed with it x

@A MyMSTeam Member - like @A MyMSTeam Member said, there is Wahl's and OMS. I think those are probably the two most common you hear about. There is also MITO (which Stanford has been recommending). I think the key is to try to eat low inflammatory foods (that is a common thread for all of these). Dr. Weil has an anti-inflammatory food pyramid that I thought looked pretty good. The biggest problem, in my view, is that it can be really hard to follow some of these diets. I know I could not do Wahls. The thought of eating organ meat ... ugh. No thanks. For me, it is just easier to shoot for the low-inflammation foods. For exercise, I understand horse back riding is supposed to be good ... and so are water sports. I find cycling is something I can tolerate. Walking, not so much. Running, I wish (I miss it). Tai chi and yoga are also good. Movement and stretching can be great and help with some of the symptoms. Good luck. Take it one day at a time and try not to get frustrated if you have a bad day. :-)
