Good morning everyone
My theme is sort of connected to my last ‘going to the toilet’ topic, as I would like to consider the subject of diet. I have to confess that I am one of those head in the sand types and I’m not the sort of person who is always looking at MS related subjects on the Internet etc - however, this needs to improve and I need to start looking into the illness more.
I have just spent the last hour or so looking at YouTube videos on diets and this has scared me to death! One guy was even telling me to give up dairy products totally-and I am a man who has a glass of milk instead of alcohol (thinking this is a healthy alternative) and has spent the most part of his life devouring cheese! The only good news I found was that potatoes seem to be okay-although I suppose this doesn’t include chips wrapped in newspaper!
But I feel I do need to make more effort with my diet and my question is if people have some suggestions for getting started- I am finding all these YouTube videos a bit too much and almost overcomplicated. I need a simple plan to get me started and I thought our forum readers would be the best start.
I suppose if I’m honest I see eating and drinking as a comfort to deal with all the problems we face every day. I still enjoy a beer at the weekend for example-I couldn’t face cutting it out totally.
I am looking forward to your dietary experiences and advice.
