think I indadvertenly ate butter in a sandwich today. asked for a sandwich with no dressing and near the end realised they had butter in it. was tired and very upset.....felt so guilty too and extremely angry. it can be so hard to follow this diet 100%
My first exposure to the idea that diet could make any difference to MS was when a friend told me of a Copenhagen GP who, having lost the use of her right arm due to MS, had adopted the Swank diet and regained full use of her arm. The lady in question apparently allows herself completely free rein at Copenhagenâ€™s foremost patisserie â€“ renowned for their extraordinary cream concoctions - one day of the year. And remains free of MS symptoms despite this annual indulgence!
If you adhere to the principles of the super-healthy OMS lifestyle the vast majority of the time, all the good work you have done for your body is surely not going to be dissipated by one smear of butter in a sandwich? In the recent â€˜eating outâ€™ discussion a forum member mentioned what sounded like a sound strategy, namely to be extra strict on saturated fat at home on the days before and/or after eating out?
I definitely donâ€™t think you should be too hard on yourself about the dairy mishap. Stress is very bad for MS!
