welcome to the tribe. My dietary regime is abit on the extreme side, but Ive gotten to the point where I was tired of non stop flare ups. Ok, here it goes..Nothing in the nightshade family (causes inflammation) potatoes, tomatoes, eggplant, tobacco. white death or rather sugar is off the menu too for me (i use agave or brown rice syrup instead sparingly) and usually steer clear of gluten or rather crap gluten. No fast food...period. I could go into the whole no gmo tirade, but that is more of my own opinion and its an individual decision. Animal meat doesnt not like me anymore, no matter how hard I try to convince my body otherwise. Im extremely reactive to animal fats (milk, butter, ect). I believe its all the antibiotics that they feed livestock in the USA and my situation is reactive to it. Did you know that 80 percent of all antibiotics sold in the United States are for use on livestock and poultry, not humans? Thats just me. Others can get away with eating less strict.
To get protein Try having a meal of rice and beans or lentils, or pasta and beans. You can try combining any of the grains like whole wheat, oats, rice, pasta or corn, with legumes like beans, peanuts, lentils or even soy. Or maybe just a sandwich of whole wheat bread with peanut butter or even veg lasagna could provide you with the complete proteins. Have a bowl of hot split pea soup, and have all the complete proteins you need! Black beans and kidney beans with quinoa, rice or pasta is a complete meal full of complete proteins.
or nuts & grains or nuts & legumes..Lots of greens of all types..Cabbage is my favorite, easy & cheap.
Regarding Dr's knowlege on diet- Its pathetic
In the mid-1980s, the National Academy of Sciences published a landmark report highlighting the lack of adequate nutrition education in medical schools; the writers recommended a minimum of 25 hours of nutrition instruction. Now, in a study published in 2014, it appears that even two and a half decades later a vast majority of medical schools still fail to meet the minimum recommended 25 hours of instruction.
See a nutritionist, Doctors are completely & utterly worthless regarding dietary advice.
Good luck on your journey of discovering what your body needs, wants & requires..
