Best Bet Diet

The Best Bet Diet has become popular in the Multiple Sclerosis world.

The Best Bet Diet is a little like the song from The Singing Detective: "Accentuate the positive and eliminate the negative". Eating the wrong food is thought to lead to a lack of the nutrients that help to keep your immune system in control, and the wrong food can also cause the immune system to attack your body.

Adherents therefore cut out the wrong stuff (eliminate the negative) and add some of the right stuff. The diet is dairy-free, gluten-free and egg-free. It's also yeast restrictive, sugar restrictive and low in saturated fat. There's a list of supplements you're also advised to take to accentuate the positive.

People with Multiple Sclerosis say how much better they feel on this diet - less tired and fewer relapses. And if you look on the positive side of things, it could actually be quite palatable - lots of white meat, fish, fruit and vegetables. Some people also say that tequila is OK too.
