Hi,Welcome aboard, Linda!
My husband has been a long-time sufferer of Lyme disease, and has heard that a diet similar to the McDougall diet will be helpful. I don't want to get too technical as to why it could help to alleviate some of his symptoms; it's quite complicated.
So, I am faced with the daunting task of implementing this diet for him with the exception of wheat and nuts. I know that doesn't leave much. I am hoping there is something out there for him to eat besides beans, but I have not been very successful in finding many recipes.
Oh, and he doesn't like tofu.
If there are any other Lyme sufferers out there, please let me know. I'd love to see how you are doing on this diet.
If you will take the time to study the resources here, you will find that omitting wheat, nuts and tofu will still leave many wonderful options!
You can make it easy and simple or complicated and perhaps more tasty. I keep my diet simple and easy (just veggies and starches)...maybe because I am lazy and I am a happy customer.I expect both of you will be pleased with the results if you will faithfully follow Dr. McDougall's guidance.
