Eliminating your intake of foods that cause inflammation is critical. What you want to do is also incorporate a variety of foods that reduce inflammation into your diet that can also be beneficial.
A healthy, complete anti-inflammatory diet should comprise mostly nutrient-dense, whole foods, including fruits, veggies, nuts, seeds and legumes. Herbs, spices, healthy fats and protein foods are also included on the anti-inflammatory foods list as well.
Making a few simple swaps in your diet is an easy way to get started. Try trading processed meats, for example, with healthier protein sources, like fish, poultry, or legumes.
You also need to ditch the deep frying methods which contains loads of vegetable oil, and try baking your own vegetable chips instead. Or, try swapping refined carbs like white rice, pasta or bread for whole grain varieties to give your diet an easy upgrade.
