Jeg er fuldstændig a morgenmad person. Der er masser af grunde til, at alle bør spise morgenmad hver dag. For mig handler det om at give min krop brændstof til morgenen, aktivere mit stofskifte og putte noget velsmagende i munden, der holder mig mæt, indtil mine skrivebordssnacks begynder at se tiltalende ud.

Nogle morgener negler jeg fuldstændigt morgenmadssituationen. Jeg vågner og skåler en halv bagel, smører lidt avocado på den dårlige dreng og dækker den med peber, Himalaya pink salt og agurker i skiver (prøv dette; det er fantastisk) og så tager jeg min skabelse på arbejde (sammen med et par mandariner). Andre morgener vågner jeg for sent, jeg kan ikke beslutte mig for, hvad jeg skal have på, eller jeg er træt, så jeg grinende venter i kø kl. Starbucks og blæs $ 10 på en fedtet morgenmadsandwich, der altid giver mig ondt i maven - plus en grande chai tea latte med mandelmælk og et skud, for jeg er faktisk et monster.

Ja der er morgenmad hacks involverer æg og Kanelsnegle det ville fungere godt i en weekend, når jeg har tid, men når jeg ruller ud af sengen kl. 5 om tirsdagen, er det jeg virkelig har brug for en sikker morgenmad, der er let at lave, giver mig energi, holder mig mæt og vil forsyne min krop med næringsstoffer, der vil opretholde min glødende eksistens (dvs. noget der ikke vil bryde min hud ud eller skade min mave). Indtast mit seneste morgenmadseksperiment.

Jeg blev udfordret til at spise Kellogg’s Special K Nourish Peaches & Berries with Probiotics korn til morgenmad hver dag i en uge. Som en person, der handler i dagligvarebutikker, er jeg bekendt med Kellogg’s Special K. Jeg har set deres kasser hele mit liv. Hvad jeg ikke vidste var, at denne særlige slags Special K indeholder probiotika.

Du tænker måske: "Hvad er et probiotikum?”De er levende og aktive kulturer (alias gode bakterier), der hjælper med fordøjelsen, hjælper med at optage mineraler og bekæmper dårlige bakterier. De holder dig også "regelmæssig", hvis du fanger min drift.

Min første dag, hvor jeg havde Kellogg’s Special K Nourish Peaches & Berries med Probiotics -korn (eller i stenografi, KSKNP & BW/P) til morgenmad, var jeg nervøs for, at kornet kunne være for sødt. Da jeg hældte mig en skål, så jeg en flok stykker tørrede jordbær, blåbær og fersken samt nogle yoghurt-y-udseende rektangler blandet med de særlige K-stykker. Min første bid var dog dejlig frugtagtig uden at være sukkerholdig. Yoghurtstykkerne gav mandelmælk at jeg hældte over min morgenmad en fløjlsagtig mundfølelse, som jeg især nød. Jeg spekulerede kort over, om en skål korn ville være nok til morgenmad, men jeg besluttede, at jeg ville lytte til min krop. Jeg blev ret tilfreds indtil en time før frokost!

Dag to gik lige så glat. Jeg er en af ​​dem, der vil spise det samme til morgenmad hver dag, indtil de brænder ud på det, så det var ikke noget problem at have det samme måltid to dage i træk. Da jeg spiste min morgenmad på arbejdet, blev jeg glad for sprødheden i kornstykkerne blandet med bærens smag og besluttede mig for at læse boksen. Tilsyneladende er der 12 gram fuldkorn i dette! Det er en god kilde til fiber! Der var imidlertid ingen gåder, labyrinter eller gåder, jeg skulle løse, mens jeg spiste.

På dag tre lagde jeg mærke til, at jeg ikke længere var helt vild med frokosttid. Jeg havde holdt mig fuld og energisk stort set alle tre formiddage, da jeg besluttede at holde pause til frokost. De fleste morgener, medmindre jeg har en stor morgenmad, bliver jeg temmelig sulten cirka to timer efter jeg har spist og begynder enten at spise min frokost kl. 10 eller indtager mange skrivebords snacks. Siden jeg startede mit nye morgenmadsprogram, havde jeg holdt mig nogenlunde tilfreds indtil lige omkring frokosten! Mit ideelle tidspunkt at blive sulten igen!

I december besluttede jeg, at jeg ville gå ind i 2018 og være mere bevidst om, hvordan forskellige fødevarer positivt og negativt påvirker mig. Jeg opgav kaffe (fordi det gør mig til et rodet rod) og komælk (fordi det får mig til at bryde ud), og jeg kan nu sige, at jeg som person, der lever i januar 2018, har set en forbedring. Dog er jeg stadig af og til lider af fordøjelsesproblemer. Jeg er tilbøjelig til mavepine og kvalme og alle de sjove ting, som jeg helt sikkert burde se en læge om. Jeg lagde mærke til på dag fire af min morgenmadsudfordring, at min mave havde ondt meget mindre under min nyoprettede morgenrutine. Jeg vil meget gerne tilskrive det til probiotika. Tarmsundhed er faktisk vanvittig vigtigt, og du er måske ikke klar over, hvor meget du forsømmer det ubehag, du har, før du begynder at foretage en ændring. At spise denne fiberfyldte kornblanding med levende og aktive kulturer hver morgen syntes at gøre en positiv forskel! Jeg følte mig mæt, men alligevel gik min mave ikke i stykker eller udførte noget af det sædvanlige.

På min femte dag, hvor jeg spiste Kellogg’s Special K Nourish Peaches & Berries med Probiotics-korn til morgenmad, besluttede jeg mig for at spise den med yoghurt uden mælk i stedet for min sædvanlige nødde- eller havremælk. Jeg er glad for at kunne sige, at den var sprød og lækker som topping. Også for dem af jer, der spekulerer på, om yoghurtstykkerne brød mig ud, fordi de ikke var mælkefri-nej! Min hud var-og er (bank på træ) fin.

Jeg afsluttede mit ugentlige morgenmadsarrangement i weekenden og følte mig ganske tilfreds med mig selv og med dette korn. Det var velsmagende og ikke for sødt, gjorde ikke ondt i min mave og hjalp ærligt talt nok lidt. Plus efter en uge med at have spist korn, var min forsyning ikke løbet tør. Boksen havde stadig nok tilbage til potentielt yderligere syv dage.

Ville jeg blive træt af at spise det samme hver morgen til sidst? Ja. Men at spise Special K Nourish fik mig til at indse, at jeg helt sikkert skulle introducere et probiotikum i mit vitaminmenageri og spise en morgenmad, der gav mig det brændstof, min krop har brug for til at fungere korrekt og kraftfuldt, hjalp absolut forenkle min morgenrutine. Betragt mig som en troende.


Min antiinflammatoriske diæt

Jeg er blevet spurgt af mange mennesker, jeg møder på arbejdet, i gymnastiksalen, på denne blog og andre steder, hvordan jeg har kunnet udvikle mig og leve nogenlunde normalt med denne sygdom. Faktisk må jeg give æren til min fremragende reumatolog, Dr. Paul Howard i Scottsdale, Arizona for at have overtalt mig til at overholde den antiinflammatoriske madretningslinje.

Det var efter 3 års tilbagefald, jeg bad ham om at hjælpe mig med at undgå tilbagefald igen. Han så mig firkantet i øjnene og sagde “ er du endelig klar til at lave den antiinflammatoriske diæt, som om dit liv afhænger af det? ”. Jeg sagde ja, og jeg var desperat. Jeg ville gøre alt for at undgå den ekstreme smerte, hævelse, ledbetændelse, sved og kuldegysninger, jeg levede med, hver gang jeg kom tilbage. Han gav mig en generel retningslinje for:

Ingen mejeri!
Absolut ingen hvedeprodukter!
INGEN SUKKER!
INGEN KORN!

Dette var et chok for min normale måde at leve på, fordi disse varer stort set var det, jeg spiste. Jeg plejede at spise hvide ris, hvedebrød, pizza, ost, is, mejeri osv.

Så det første min mand gjorde, var at tømme huset for de ting, jeg ikke skulle spise. Da jeg var så svag, gik han på indkøb efter grøntsager, kylling, fisk, frugt, solsikkefrøsmør, jordnøddesmør, mandelsmør, mandelmælk, mange slags nødder. Denne kost var god for mig, fordi jeg havde tabt mig så meget ved at være syg, at de nærende fedtstoffer hjalp mig med at tage på. Jeg begyndte at spise økologiske æg, kalkun i skiver, sardiner, klid. Da methrotrexatet blokerer folsyre, og jeg begyndte at få alvorlig neuropati i mine fødder. Mine fødder ville brænde som brændende nåle, og jeg græd, når jeg gik. Vi lærte, at hele klid (All Bran Cereal) leverede en super høj mængde af folsyren, jeg har brug for for at vende neuropati i mine fødder. Og den vurderer hele 109 +på IF Tracker -skalaen !! En høj positiv talbedømmelse på en mad er fantastisk! Et negativt tal som -300 er DÅRT! Og sukker og hvede sats FORFÆRDELIG! et stykke kage med glasur kan bedømme så dårligt som -700. Det betyder, UGE. Ledsmerter, blusser osv.

Jeg søgte meget på nettet og fandt mange antiinflammatoriske artikler. I sidste ende fandt jeg ud af, at mange af de opskrifter, jeg fandt, var de samme for hjertebetændelse. Jeg lærte, at konstant betændelse i kroppen fører til sygdom og ofte mange forskellige autoimmune sygdomme. Dette fik mig til at spekulere på, om jeg havde betændt min krop i årevis og ikke vidste det? Måske havde jeg det egentlig ikke godt i årevis, men jeg havde vænnet mig til at have det sådan, så jeg syntes det var normalt? Jeg lærte også, at en person kan føle sig helt ok, men har et højt niveau af betændelse. Selvfølgelig har kroppen brug for en vis inflammatorisk reaktion for at bekæmpe virale og bakterielle angribere.

Beslutningen om at leve med den antiinflammatoriske diæt var et direkte valg, jeg måtte tage til mig. Da jeg erkendte, at det var den måde, jeg skulle leve på, søgte jeg på internettet efter hver eneste information om opskrifter, valg af mad, betændelsesniveauer for hver mad og fødevarer, der normalt forbrænder kroppen. Jeg faldt til sidst over en app, som jeg stolede meget på, indtil jeg lærte den godt. Den app, jeg fandt, hedder IF TRACKER. Jeg elsker IF Tracker! Det giver hver mad en vurdering af positiv eller negativ, den beregner også maden afhængigt af portionens størrelse og justerer vurderingen passende.

Det, jeg lærte af IF Tracker, er, at den har mange fødevarer på listen, som jeg troede var sunde, men som betændte mig. Min læge sagde det bedst, da han gav mig en oversigt over fødevarer, der er mest inflammatoriske i systemet.

Mit madindtag var så ekstremt lavt, da jeg var syg, at jeg havde svært ved at få kalorier i. Min kost har ændret sig for at tillade en lille mængde negative vurderede fødevarer i mit madindtag, og det påvirker mig ikke. Men dette var forsøg og fejl i et par år, og også før min krop havde tilpasset sig medicin. Som jeg har sagt før i min blog, er jeg nede på 2 methotrexatpiller om ugen. Men jeg må stadig se min stress, træthed, udmattelse og madindtag meget tæt.

Jeg vil give et eksempel på min daglige kost og madindtag. I løbet af de sidste par år har jeg været nødt til at lære at nyde en ny måde at spise på, og nu kan jeg faktisk godt lide det!

En typisk dag kan være sådan her:

Morgenmad
1 kop kaffe, flødekande
1/2 skål blåbær
1/2 kop klidkorn
1 kop mandelmælk (neutraliserer alkalisk i kroppen for at reducere betændelse)

Frokost
Tunfisk
fedtfri mayonaise
2 spiseskefulde
1 avocado

Aftensmad
Laks
Spinat
Butternut squash
Romaine salat
Citronsaft
Havsalt
Olivenolie

Da jeg startede den antiinflammatoriske diæt, var jeg ekstremt streng. For den optimale effekt skal du starte på denne måde. Da jeg i de sidste 3 år på kosten er begyndt at inkludere meget små mængder mad, der har en negativ vurdering, der ikke er lavere end -50 (ifølge IF Tracker). Jeg har lært, at vurderingerne er meget vigtige at følge, men hvis din krop begynder at vise forbedring, så kan du eksperimentere lidt her og der.

Jeg har også fundet ud af, at hvis jeg spiser mad på alle er meget høje i den positive skala i +100 ’s, +200 ’s og højere som laks og spinat gør, så ved jeg, hvornår jeg kan tilføje en mad med lavere rating, såsom kartofler eller majs, der kan bedømme som lav -50, med det, og det påvirker mig ikke.

Der er også et websted, jeg ofte bruger, da det har den ernæringsmæssige fordeling af næsten alle fødevarer på planeten. Jeg elsker dette websted. Jeg bruger den til at finde betændelsesfaktoren for mange forskellige fødevarer. Det kan også være nyttigt for dig.

Held og lykke, prøv den antiinflammatoriske diæt, uanset hvilken måde du vælger at gøre det på, tror jeg, at det kan redde dig fra så mange smerter.

Da jeg erkendte, at det var den måde, jeg skulle leve på, søgte jeg på internettet efter hver eneste information om opskrifter, valg af mad, betændelsesniveauer for hver mad og fødevarer, der normalt forbrænder kroppen. Jeg faldt til sidst over en app, som jeg stolede meget på, indtil jeg lærte den godt. Den app, jeg fandt, hedder IF TRACKER. Jeg elsker IF Tracker! Det giver hver mad en vurdering af positiv eller negativ, den beregner også maden afhængigt af portionens størrelse og justerer vurderingen passende.

Det, jeg lærte af IF Tracker, er, at den har mange fødevarer på listen, som jeg troede var sunde, men som betændte mig. Min læge sagde det bedst, da han gav mig en oversigt over fødevarer, der er mest inflammatoriske i systemet.

Mit madindtag var så ekstremt lavt, da jeg var syg, at jeg havde svært ved at få kalorier i. Min kost har ændret sig for at tillade en lille mængde negative vurderede fødevarer i mit madindtag, og det påvirker mig ikke. Men dette var forsøg og fejl i et par år, og også før min krop havde tilpasset sig medicin. Som jeg har sagt før i min blog, er jeg nede på 2 methotrexatpiller om ugen. Men jeg må stadig se min stress, træthed, udmattelse og madindtag meget tæt.

Jeg vil give et eksempel på min daglige kost og madindtag. I løbet af de sidste par år har jeg været nødt til at lære at nyde en ny måde at spise på, og nu kan jeg faktisk lide det!

En typisk dag kan være sådan her:

Morgenmad
1 kop kaffe, flødekande
1/2 skål blåbær
1/2 kop klidkorn
1 kop mandelmælk (neutraliserer alkalisk i kroppen for at reducere betændelse)

Frokost
Tunfisk
fedtfri mayonaise
2 spiseskefulde
1 avocado

Aftensmad
Laks
Spinat
Butternut squash
Romaine salat
Citronsaft
Havsalt
Olivenolie

Da jeg startede den antiinflammatoriske diæt, var jeg ekstremt streng. For den optimale effekt skal du starte på denne måde. Da jeg de sidste 3 år på kosten er begyndt at inkludere meget små mængder mad, der har en negativ vurdering, der ikke er lavere end -50 (ifølge IF Tracker). Jeg har lært, at vurderingerne er meget vigtige at følge, men hvis din krop begynder at vise forbedring, så kan du eksperimentere lidt her og der.

Jeg har også fundet ud af, at hvis jeg spiser mad på alle er meget høje i den positive skala i +100 ’s, +200 ’s og højere som laks og spinat gør, så ved jeg, hvornår jeg kan tilføje en mad med lavere rating, såsom kartofler eller majs, der kan bedømme som lav -50, med det, og det påvirker mig ikke.

Der er også et websted, jeg ofte bruger, da det har den ernæringsmæssige fordeling af næsten alle fødevarer på planeten. Jeg elsker dette websted. Jeg bruger den til at finde betændelsesfaktoren for mange forskellige fødevarer. Det kan også være nyttigt for dig.

Held og lykke, prøv den antiinflammatoriske diæt, uanset hvilken måde du vælger at gøre det på, tror jeg, at det kan redde dig fra så mange smerter.


Min antiinflammatoriske diæt

Jeg er blevet spurgt af mange mennesker, jeg møder på arbejdet, i gymnastiksalen, på denne blog og andre steder, hvordan jeg har kunnet udvikle mig og leve nogenlunde normalt med denne sygdom. Faktisk må jeg give æren til min fremragende reumatolog, Dr. Paul Howard i Scottsdale, Arizona for at have overtalt mig til at overholde den antiinflammatoriske madretningslinje.

Det var efter 3 års tilbagefald, jeg bad ham om at hjælpe mig med at undgå tilbagefald igen. Han så mig firkantet i øjnene og sagde “ er du endelig klar til at lave den antiinflammatoriske diæt, som om dit liv afhænger af det? ”. Jeg sagde ja, og jeg var desperat. Jeg ville gøre alt for at undgå den ekstreme smerte, hævelse, ledbetændelse, sved og kuldegysninger, jeg levede med, hver gang jeg kom tilbage. Han gav mig en generel retningslinje for:

Ingen mejeri!
Absolut ingen hvedeprodukter!
INGEN SUKKER!
INGEN KORN!

Dette var et chok for min normale måde at leve på, for disse varer var dybest set det, jeg spiste. Jeg plejede at spise hvide ris, hvedebrød, pizza, ost, is, mejeri osv.

Så det første min mand gjorde, var at tømme huset for de ting, jeg ikke skulle spise. Da jeg var så svag, gik han på indkøb efter grøntsager, kylling, fisk, frugt, solsikkefrøsmør, jordnøddesmør, mandelsmør, mandelmælk, mange slags nødder. Denne kost var god for mig, fordi jeg havde tabt mig så meget ved at være syg, at de nærende fedtstoffer hjalp mig med at tage på. Jeg begyndte at spise økologiske æg, kalkun i skiver, sardiner, klid. Da methrotrexatet blokerer folsyre, og jeg begyndte at få alvorlig neuropati i mine fødder. Mine fødder ville brænde som brændende nåle, og jeg græd, når jeg gik. Vi lærte, at hele klid (All Bran Cereal) leverede en super høj mængde af folsyren, jeg har brug for for at vende neuropati i mine fødder. Og den vurderer hele 109 +på IF Tracker -skalaen !! En høj positiv talbedømmelse på en mad er fantastisk! Et negativt tal som -300 er DÅRT! Og sukker og hvede sats FORFÆRDELIG! et stykke kage med glasur kan bedømme så dårligt som -700. Det betyder, UGE. Ledsmerter, blusser osv.

Jeg søgte meget på nettet og fandt mange antiinflammatoriske artikler. Ultimately, I found that many of the recipes I found were the same for cardiac inflammation. I learned that having constant inflammation in the body leads to disease and very often, many different auto-immune diseases. This made me wonder if I was inflaming my body for years and did not know it? Perhaps I was not really feeling well for years, but I had gotten used to feeling this way so I thought it was normal? I also learned that a person can feel perfectly fine, but have high levels of inflammation. Of course the body does need some inflammatory response to battle viral and bacterial invaders.

Deciding to live with the anti-inflammtory diet was a direct choice I had to embrace. When I acknowledged that this was going to be the way I was going to live, I searched the internet for every bit of information on recipes, food choices, inflammation levels of each food and foods that commonly inflame the body. I eventually stumbled upon an app that I relied on very heavily, until I learned it well. The app I found is called the IF TRACKER. I love the IF Tracker! It gives each food a rating of positive or negative, it also calculates the food depending on the size of the portion and adjust the rating appropriately.

What I learned from the IF Tracker is that, it has many foods in the list that I thought were healthy but were inflaming me. My doctor said it best when he gave me the outline of foods that are most inflammatory the the system.

My food intake was so extremely low when I was ill that I had a hard time getting calories in. My diet has changed to allow a small amount of negative rated foods in my food intake and it does not affect me. But this was trial and error for a few years, and also before my body had adjusted to medication. As I have said before in my blog, I am down to 2 methotrexate pills a week. But I must still watch my stress, fatigue levels, exhaustion and food intake very closely.

I will provide example of my daily diet and food intake. During these past few years I have had to learn to enjoy a new way of eating, and now I actually like it!

A typical day might be something like this:

Breakfast
1 cup coffee, creamer
1/2 bowl blueberries
1/2 cup bran cereal
1 cup almond milk (neutralizes alkaline in body to reduce inflammation)

Lunch
Tuna fish
fat free mayonaise
2 tablespoons relish
1 avocado

Dinner
Salmon
Spinat
Butternut squash
Romaine lettuce
Lemon juice
Sea-Salt
Olivenolie

When I started the anti-inflamatory diet, I was extremely strict. For the optimum effect, you must start out this way. As, these past 3 years on the diet, I have started to include very small amounts of foods that have some negative rating no lower than -50 (according to the IF Tracker) . I have learned that the ratings are very important to follow, but if your body is beginning to show improvement, then you can experiment a little here and there.

I have also found that if I eat foods at are all rating very high in the positive scale in the +100’s, +200’s and higher as salmon and spinach do, then I know when I can add a lower rating food, such as potatoes or corn, which can rate as low -50, with it and it does not affect me.

There is also a website I use often, since it has the nutritional breakdown for almost every food on the planet. I love this site. I use it to find the inflammation factor of many different foods. It might be useful for you too.

Good Luck, please try the anti-inflammatory diet, whichever way you choose to do it, I believe it can save you from so much pain.


My Anti-Inflammatory Diet

I have been asked by many people I meet at work, at the gym, on this blog and other places how I have been able to progress and live fairly normal with this disease. Actually, I must give credit to my excellent Rheumatologist, Dr Paul Howard in Scottsdale, Arizona for persuading me to adhere to the anti-inflammatory food guideline.

It was after 3 years of relapsing, I pleaded to him to help me avoid relapsing again. He looked me square in the eye and said “are you finally ready to do the anti-inflammatory diet, as if your life depends on it?”. I said yes and I was desperate. I would do whatever it takes to avoid the extreme pain, swelling, joint inflammation, sweats and and chills I was living with every time I relapsed. He gave me a general guideline of:

No DAIRY!
ABSOLUTELY NO WHEAT PRODUCTS!
NO SUGAR!
NO GRAINS!

This was a shock to my normal way of living, because these items were basically what I ate. I used to eat white rice, wheat bread, pizza, cheese, ice-cream, dairy, etc.

So the first thing my husband did was empty the house of the things I should not eat. Since I was so weak, he went shopping for vegetables, chicken, fish, fruits, sunflower seed butter, peanut butter, almond butter, almond milk, many kinds of nuts. This diet was good for me because I had lost so much weight being sick that the nutritious fats helped me gain weight. I began to eat organic eggs, sliced turkey, sardines, bran. Since the methrotrexate blocks folic acid and i began to have severe neuropathy in my feet. My feet would burn like burning needles and I would cry when I walked. We learned that whole bran (All Bran Cereal) provided a super high amount of the folic acid I need to reverse the neuropathy in my feet. And it rates a whopping +109 on the IF Tracker scale!! A high positive number rating on a food is great! A negative number like -300 is BAD! And sugar and wheat rate TERRIBLE! a piece of cake with icing can rate as bad as -700. That means, OUCH. Joint pain, flares, etc.

I would do whatever it takes to avoid the extreme pain, swelling, joint inflammation, sweats and and chills I was living with every time I relapsed. He gave me a general guideline of:

No DAIRY!
ABSOLUTELY NO WHEAT PRODUCTS!
NO SUGAR!
NO GRAINS!

This was a shock to my normal way of living, because these items were basically what I ate. I used to eat white rice, wheat bread, pizza, cheese, ice-cream, dairy, etc.

So the first thing my husband did was empty the house of the things I should not eat. Since I was so weak, he went shopping for vegetables, chicken, fish, fruits, sunflower seed butter, peanut butter, almond butter, almond milk, many kinds of nuts. This diet was good for me because I had lost so much weight being sick that the nutritious fats helped me gain weight. I began to eat organic eggs, sliced turkey, sardines, bran. Since the methrotrexate blocks folic acid and i began to have severe neuropathy in my feet. My feet would burn like burning needles and I would cry when I walked. We learned that whole bran (All Bran Cereal) provided a super high amount of the folic acid I need to reverse the neuropathy in my feet. And it rates a whopping +109 on the IF Tracker scale!! A high positive number rating on a food is great! A negative number like -300 is BAD! And sugar and wheat rate TERRIBLE! a piece of cake with icing can rate as bad as -700. That means, OUCH. Joint pain, flares, etc.

I did a lot of searching on the web and found many anti-inflammatory articles. Ultimately, I found that many of the recipes I found were the same for cardiac inflammation. I learned that having constant inflammation in the body leads to disease and very often, many different auto-immune diseases. This made me wonder if I was inflaming my body for years and did not know it? Perhaps I was not really feeling well for years, but I had gotten used to feeling this way so I thought it was normal? I also learned that a person can feel perfectly fine, but have high levels of inflammation. Of course the body does need some inflammatory response to battle viral and bacterial invaders.

Deciding to live with the anti-inflammtory diet was a direct choice I had to embrace. When I acknowledged that this was going to be the way I was going to live, I searched the internet for every bit of information on recipes, food choices, inflammation levels of each food and foods that commonly inflame the body. I eventually stumbled upon an app that I relied on very heavily, until I learned it well. The app I found is called the IF TRACKER. I love the IF Tracker! It gives each food a rating of positive or negative, it also calculates the food depending on the size of the portion and adjust the rating appropriately.

What I learned from the IF Tracker is that, it has many foods in the list that I thought were healthy but were inflaming me. My doctor said it best when he gave me the outline of foods that are most inflammatory the the system.

My food intake was so extremely low when I was ill that I had a hard time getting calories in. My diet has changed to allow a small amount of negative rated foods in my food intake and it does not affect me. But this was trial and error for a few years, and also before my body had adjusted to medication. As I have said before in my blog, I am down to 2 methotrexate pills a week. But I must still watch my stress, fatigue levels, exhaustion and food intake very closely.

I will provide example of my daily diet and food intake. During these past few years I have had to learn to enjoy a new way of eating, and now I actually like it!

A typical day might be something like this:

Breakfast
1 cup coffee, creamer
1/2 bowl blueberries
1/2 cup bran cereal
1 cup almond milk (neutralizes alkaline in body to reduce inflammation)

Lunch
Tuna fish
fat free mayonaise
2 tablespoons relish
1 avocado

Dinner
Salmon
Spinat
Butternut squash
Romaine lettuce
Lemon juice
Sea-Salt
Olivenolie

When I started the anti-inflamatory diet, I was extremely strict. For the optimum effect, you must start out this way. As, these past 3 years on the diet, I have started to include very small amounts of foods that have some negative rating no lower than -50 (according to the IF Tracker) . I have learned that the ratings are very important to follow, but if your body is beginning to show improvement, then you can experiment a little here and there.

I have also found that if I eat foods at are all rating very high in the positive scale in the +100’s, +200’s and higher as salmon and spinach do, then I know when I can add a lower rating food, such as potatoes or corn, which can rate as low -50, with it and it does not affect me.

There is also a website I use often, since it has the nutritional breakdown for almost every food on the planet. I love this site. I use it to find the inflammation factor of many different foods. It might be useful for you too.

Good Luck, please try the anti-inflammatory diet, whichever way you choose to do it, I believe it can save you from so much pain.
