Healthy Eating with Multiple Sclerosis
And so, it begins. I’m not alone in my CoVid weight battle; after a week at the beach wearing my not-so-teeny tiny bikini, I knew for certain something had to be done.
I saw a camping pal of mine recently and she had already taken the plunge, visited a nutritionist, and lost nearly 70 pounds.
And she eats real food ALL DAY.
After visiting her “weight control person”, I am officially on day two of my own weight control adventure. I’ve already screwed up a bit, but not in an added calory kind of way. ON my plan, I am supposed to eat every three hours. Yesterday I missed my 7 AM breakfast and substituted it with my first “snack” of the day. So, day one was minus one of my scheduled six feedings.
I’m back on track today and feeling more confident in my choices after concocting an unusual egg omelet consisting of all the ingredients of my morning meal. I was supposed to have one egg, two egg-white-omelet with mushrooms and tomatoes, and an apple on the side. I just threw it all in the skillet for a unique experience in culinary health. Apples in an omelet? Not bad on a crisp autumnal morning.
My morning snack will be a yogurt and fruit smoothie. It is not on my menu for the day, but I am trying to use up ingredients that otherwise go bad in my kitchen if not used. So, yes, I am taking creative control of this diet. Hey, I’m consuming everything I was told to, just in an unconventional manner. Makes sense to me. Hope the scales agree next week.
I’ve read most of the best diets/meal plans for multiple sclerosis and have been overwhelmed to the point of devouring an entire bag of corn chips while consuming the words of professionals. I totally respect the work involved in Wahls Protocol and The MS Recovery Diet. Gluten-free menus make sense but get rather expensive. The MonSter is already a pricy disease as it is. I’d rather spend my extra change on pretty canes.
It's nearly time for my next feeding.
