Monica Reinagel has written a book called The Inflammation Free Diet Plan. www.inflammationfactor.com
Included in this book is a complete listing of IF Ratings for over 1600 foods.
The IF Rating™ system makes it easy by estimating how various foods and combinations of foods are likely to affect inflammation in the body. Foods with negative ratings may contribute to inflammation, especially when consumed in excessive quantities. Foods with positive IF Ratings support the body’s anti-inflammatory processes. The higher the number, the stronger the effect.
For instance, a half cup of chocolate ice cream is -127. It’s just like it sounds … bad. Not very helpful for someone trying to become free of the inflammation that is causing their twitchy legs. A raw carrot is +99, so an excellent vegetable to eat lots of if you suffer from RLS.
In the next while I’m going to list some positive and negative foods that may surprise you.
What are you willing to give up in order to become healthy?
