anti-inflammation diet

Another thread had two comments about an anti-inflammation diet. I don't know what this is but am curious to find out. What does one eat on this diet? What does one avoid? Thanks for the any info you provide.

Perricone is your guy. It's also about making your skin look better. Pick up the book called the Perricone prescription.

OP here. Thanks for the reference to Perricone. I checked him out on a few sites. For me, the most interesting was here:

Hope this helps others.

Perricone is totally right about sugar and inflammation.

Lack of science my ass. Doctors are the freaking problem. To them nothing can be proven, and you need to kneel down beneath them.

Funny I was just going to post this: Basically someone else saying the same thing.

Your big new threat: Inflammation

Chronic swelling can prompt a host of diseases, even heart attacks. Here are eight ways you can reduce your risk.

Did you know inflammation is a bigger threat to your heart than cholesterol? The risk of heart attack jumped 300% in women with high blood vessel inflammation, but only 40% in women with high bad-type LDL cholesterol, according to new Harvard research. Men with the worst inflammation had three times the odds of dropping dead from a heart attack as men with the least inflammation.

Inflammation is characterized by pain, redness and swelling. If it persists, it's called "chronic" inflammation. Besides its well-known role in arthritis, chronic inflammation is a newly recognized factor in heart disease, strokes, diabetes, Alzheimer's disease, cancer and asthma.

Here's the latest research on how to use diet to reduce inflammation throughout the body.

Eat fish oil. Omega-3 fatty acids in fish suppress the inflammatory agents that often are unleashed in the body by bad omega-6 fats such as corn and soybean oils. Fish oil counters inflammation in asthma, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis and depression, says Artemis Simopoulos, M.D., director of the Center for Genetics, Nutrition and Health and an authority on fish oil. Her advice: Avoid corn oil and eat fatty fish such as salmon, tuna and mackerel two or three times a week.

Consider alcohol. Drinking alcohol reduces inflammation, which may be one reason moderate drinkers have less heart disease. In a new study at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston, non-drinkers showed one-third more inflammation than low to moderate drinkers.

Lose weight. Overweight people usually have high inflammation. As pounds disappear, inflammation subsides. In obese women who lost an average of 39 pounds, inflammation levels dropped 32%, University of Vermont research found.

Reduce blood sugar. Foods that spike blood sugar spur inflammation. In new research at Harvard, women who ate foods with the highest glycemic load had nearly twice as much inflammation. Such foods include white potatoes, white rice, white bread, sugar and highly processed cereals.

Watch your protein. High-protein diets boost inflammation, found the Fleming Heart and Health Institute in Omaha. In people on a high-protein diet for a year, blood vessel inflammation jumped 62% and coronary artery disease worsened.

Get lots of vitamins C and E. These antioxidants suppress inflammation. In Belgian research, people with the lowest vitamin C levels had the worst inflammation and peripheral (leg) artery disease. And inflammation dropped 30% to 50% in normal and diabetic people given 1,200 IU of vitamin E daily in studies at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center.

Don't cook on high heat. Grilling, broiling and frying meat and poultry create damaged proteins called AGEs (advanced glycosylation end products) that trigger inflammation. In diabetics who ate a high AGE-inducing diet, inflammation jumped 35%; it dropped 20% in those on low AGE-inducing diets, finds research at Mount Sinai School of Medicine. To reduce AGEs, poach or boil chicken, and eat more fish. Broiled fish has about one-fourth the AGEs of broiled steak or chicken. Fruits and vegetables are low in AGEs; cheeses are high in them.

Eat other foods that help subdue inflammation, such as ginger, curry powder, olive oil, grapes, garlic, celery, blueberries and tea.

if you click on the link at the bottom of the 3:43 pm post, it takes you to an article in USA today on inflammation. At the end of the article are citations to other medical research on the subject. The quackwatch doctors are the true quacks.

There was an interview on the 11pm news a week or two ago, featuring the author/doctor of a book about an anti-inflammatory diet. Even she admitted to lack of scientific evidence, citing her 75 success cases as proof that it works. Uh, that's called anecdotal, not scientific.

However, I've heard from a few rheumatoid arthritis sufferers than an anti-oxidant rich diet really does help. That's my way of saying that I don't think it's all bunk...but maybe just a little, given its focus on how we're all walking around inflamed and fat. Kind of a frightening-yet-funny visual really.

People who buy into all these fix diets are why the industry makes billions of dollars every year. How many are truly effective? Not many, almost all will work in the beginning but 95% will gain back the weight once they start introducing foods back into their diets. Any diet that doesn't have facts and science behind it should always be questionable. I have IBD, which is basically an inflammatory problem and I belong to several support groups for this. What I can tell you are the foods that cause me to have major issues, which are dairy, except yogurt, spicy foods, salty foods, peanut butter, raw veggies, most fruits with skin on (if I peel fruit I am okay), greasy foods. A lot of other people react differently to these things. Everyone is different so to say there is one list of foods that cause inflammation in everyone is not accurate. I think we all really know the only way to lose weight and feel better inside as well as outside is diet and exercise. We would all like to believe there is a quick fix diet that really works and that we can live on for the rest of our lives but we all know there isn't. So why not stop wasting all your money and do what you know works. Eat and choose healthy foods and exercise. If you think you have inflammation problems start an elimination diet and choose one thing to eliminate for 2 weeks then reintroduce it and see what happens. If you have a reaction you know to stop or avoid those foods. It could take a long time but it will be worth it.

I just signed up for a research study between a very reputable hospital and the oldest naturopathic college in the US who are comparing the Anti-Inflammatory diet vs the standard ADA diet on folks who are pre-diabetic or diabetic. I very seriously doubt that this is a "fad" diet. The fun part is that I get all this free labwork and 6 weeks of prepared meals...yay!

It's not a "quick-fix" diet because it's not a weight-loss diet. It's a heatlh diet. I'm agnostic on whether it has merit or not. Some if it, at least, seems sensible on the face of it. Especially that alcohol is good for you! Now, for that martini...

Anti-Inflammatory Diet

This looks like an effective dieting diet....lots a of fiber seems to be appearing and that's good. If you know much about arthritis, the old sages warn against any of the 'night shades' or potatoes, tomatoes, eggplant. peppers" As an arthritis carrier, psoratic arthritis is mine and controlled by Humira, then diet wise it helps to avoid them. I can tell a big difference the next day and with some foods immediatly.

My favorite food above all is a tomatoe, and since it so diet friendly then it is a hard one to pass by. Beef and mozzarella cheese are also two great offenders but really excite my tastebuds!
