4 Diet Tips for MS

Living with MS can be challenging, but eating right can go a long way when you are trying to manage your MS symptoms. Read on to learn 4 diet tips for MS that will help you feel better every day.

Avoid Processed Foods

Most of the time when you think of a diet, you think of avoiding sugar, carbs, or fat. When it comes to dieting for MS, you want to worry less about those things and more about processing. Processed foods are one of the biggest culprits for increasing inflammation in the body, and they are a huge part of most people’s diets. Replace processed foods with foods you prepare yourself, and you will be surprised how much better you feel.

Snack Smart

Hunger between meals can lead to bad decisions, but if you are prepared with healthy snacks, you’ll be ahead of the game. Check out our list of sweet MS friendly snacks and the best MS friendly snacks to help you power through your day. Not only will these snacks give you energy and keep you from eating something unhealthy, but they will also help fight your MS symptoms!

Try an Anti-Inflammatory Diet

Most of the foods that help with MS symptoms fight inflammation in the body. If you really want to control your symptoms through diet, consider starting an anti-inflammatory diet. Eating to avoid inflammation has been linked to a decrease in MS symptoms, and many people in our community have had great success with it. We even compiled a simple one day anti-inflammatory meal plan for you to try.

Go Raw or Paleo

The anti-inflammatory diet is focused strictly on lowering inflammation in the body, which is great for fighting MS symptoms - but what if you want to do more? Many MSers have found that a raw based diet helps manage their MS symptoms. Paleo foods have also been shown to fight MS symptoms, particularly MS fatigue. Either one of these diets is an excellent choice if you want something more popular than the anti-inflammatory diet.
