Meal plan for anti inflammatory diet

Answered on August 31, 2013

I've had major joint pain recently and I don't even know the last time my nose wasn't stuffed up. Can someone give me a few anti-inflammatory meal plans. Make sure one of them includes veal liver and they all contain 10% fat yogurt and whole milk in some anti inflammatory way.

P.S I have tons of flaxseeds too and I remember hearing they are anti inflammatory. I also need between 2700 and 3000 calories because of a high activity level

Arthritis is considered an inflammatory disease (as is heart disease), and many of us are looking for ways to reduce/eliminate excess inflammation without taking more drugs.

I measure inflammation by whether or not I can clip my nails in the morning, walk without a significant limp, or get more than 3.5 solid hours of sleep a night. Inflammation means I have paws instead of hands, because my thumbs are useless!

Why do I think that diet can address this? I keep reading that it can. Is it true? I guess that's another question entirely. I have to admit, I'm also hoping that it can. I know wheat makes my asthma bad enough that I have to use an inhaler. No wheat = no inhaler. I can live with that easily. What if it is a food intolerance? These issues run in my family, makes sense that a food intolerance could as well.

How are you measuring inflammation? And what makes you think that diet will treat a stuffy nose and achy joints? Antihistamines and aspirin would seem more promising, if such remedies are considered paleo.

Dairy is not considered anti-inflammatory. It is a common food sensitivity. If you truly want an anti-inflammatory diet and to figure out what foods you are reacting to, I would suggest the Paleo autoimmune protocol, which eliminates eggs, nuts, seeds, all dairy, and nightshades in addition to the other categories of food eliminated by regular Paleo.

Eggs contain lysozymes, which are enzymes that can increase intestinal permeability (causing leaky gut and inflammation issues). Also, many people are sensitive to eggs.

Just follow paleo and then on top of that cut out dairy (if you consider it paleo, most don't), nightshades (tomatoes, potatoes, peppers), eggs and nuts.

I would incorporate turmeric into your daily diet. I would also suggest sylimarin or milk thistle. Some people take turmeric with other foods or supplements like pepper, search turmeric pepper recipes.
