Thoughts on Anti Inflammatory Diets

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created September 04, 2013 at 2:15 AM

The anti inflammatory diets tend toward cutting back on some of the saturated fats and red meat. Part of the reason I went with paleo eating is to work on migraines and joint pain and I have done pretty well on the path. Just wondering if dropping some of the beef would be beneficial and what about the fats? I use coconut oil and butter along with some olive oil. What if anything can I do to tweak the diet for less flares of joint pain?

Already doing that and it has helped. Just wondering about anything else I can do. Wondering if there is anything to the anti inflammatory diet hype.

Paleo is an anti-inflammatory diet as it cuts out the biggest sources of inflammation: n-6 fats, excessive refined carbohydrates, and the worst for many of us: grains (and also dairy if/while poorly tolerated).

It emphasises nutrient dense foods and healthy fats. Saturated fat is by definition anti-inflammatory. Highly unsaturated fats oxidise easily and are strongly linked with some inflammatory diseases.

Good quality ruminent meat is a health food.

I had serious joint issues -- cutting out modern wheat and sugary foods made the biggest difference for me. It did take several months. I eat way more meat, and way more saturated fat (meat, butter, duck fat, you name it), than I used to.

I'd try cutting nightshades and dairy first, then eggs if you must.
