Positive side effects from anti-inflammatory diet

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody,

I am doing a dietary change (anti-inflammatory, no dairy, no coffeine, no sugar, lot's of veggies, nuts, grains and fish, water, lot's of exercise) and is beginning to notice change. My skin is ok (far from perfect, though) but there are other side effects that I am happy to notice:

- More energy http://www.acne.org/messageboard/style_emo.../eusa_dance.gif

- Happy and beautiful dreams (used to have more negative dreams)

- I can smell things better

- I can taste things better

- I sleep all night (used to wake up in the middle of the night having problems falling asleep again)

This is my second week and I am happy to notice all these positive changes all ready. It motivates me to continue.

I hope you will add to the list of what you experience as your positive side effects from dietary change.

Maybe you're right about placebo.

But today I'll add a negative side effects as well:

Edema - I noticed a small tendency to edema after changing my diet. Don't really understand why that is.

It retards aging and prevents/reduces/reverses all kinds of degenerative conditions. It can help you keep your hair and have a less problematic menopause. That's the real benefit.

Why is the diet called anti-inflammatory?

Not the anti-inflammatory diet. An anti-inflammatory diet. It's not a gimmic.

It means consuming more anti-inflammatory foods than inflammatory foods that don't include anything you have an intolerance for in non-blood sugar/insulin spiking meals. Along with good sleep and moderate exercise. http://www.acne.org/messageboard/Good-Acne...09#entry2574309
