What foods to avoid and what food to focus on when on PMR
Hi Alan @alanbruce, thank you for starting this new discussion. It is a great topic. Notice I changed the title of your discussion a little to give it a little emphasis. I started looking at diet and lifestyle changes for helping with my autoimmune diseases after reading Dr. Terry Wahls book – The Wahls Protocol. She has an amazing story about how diet helped her MS symptoms – https://terrywahls.com/about/about-terry-wahls/
Here is a good article on Medical News Today that offers some suggestions.

I've mostly focused on reducing or eliminating processed meats, sugar, fast food, and fried foods. Have you found anything that helps you?
John, I eat lots of fruit especially berries, vegetables and fish. I limit carbs and meats. I rarely eat fast food and fried foods. At times I eat too many sweets, my wife's fault. I walk nearly every day which I think is a great help.
