Diet? What diet are you doing?

Tuesday, January 08, 2019

I am doing the Mediterranean diet because it gives me a variety and doesn't tell me what I can or can not eat. Here's a little tidbit that I found on verywellhealth.com "There is no special diet recommended by the National MS Society. Instead, the Society encourages a well-balanced nutrition plan that is rich in fiber and low in saturated fat—one that ends up being heart and waistline friendly too. With that, these guidelines are a starting point to keep you on track when it comes to eating for both your MS health and your overall health: Eat a variety of whole grains, vegetables, and fruits. Choose lean sources of protein. Choose healthy fats (for example, avocados, almonds, cashews). Avoid (or limit as much as possible) processed foods. Cut back on sugar and salt. balance overall calorie intake with daily exercise Engage in emotional wellness strategies like stress management and daily relaxation" This is exactly what I am doing! I feel very proud of myself for taking this step to better my lifestyle! No matter what your diet.. Who's with me?!
