I recently started the Mito Diet that was created by Integrative and Functional Medicine doctors. I have tweaked it further by removing all grains and pretty much all dairy. I eat a clean diet anyway but my energy seems better, I'm supporting my mitochondria repair and this gives me an easy plan to stick to. I haven't paid to much attention to the caloric intake/restriction because I can't seem to keep any meat on my bones right now anyway and instead use their approved food list and skip everything else.
"The Mito Food Plan (also referred to as the Energy Food Plan) may be described as an anti-inflammatory, low-glycemic, gluten-free, low-grain, high-quality fats approach to eating. The plan focuses on supporting healthy mitochondria through the use of therapeutic foods that improve energy production. Mitochondria are structures in the cell that make energy by using oxygen and nutrients from food. The brain, heart, nerves, muscles, and organs all have higher concentrations of mitochondria. These parts of the body are also more susceptible to a premature decline in function by a host of common insults. Harmful food choices can contribute to this decline, leading to poor health and chronic illness. The Mito Food Plan will support your body in the production of energy, restore a sense of vitality, and help you use food to support a graceful and healthy aging process. The Mito food list can assist in preventing the development of chronic neurological disease by helping people to choose specific foods that enhance mitochondrial function"
Couldn't get this to hyper-link, help anyone?
This sounds a lot like the Wahl's diet developed by Dr. Terry Wahl who was wheelchair bound with MS. I have her book and it too is based on supporting mitochondria. The trouble is, most of it is absolutely disgusting even though her personal results are incredible. She has managed to make an incredible recovery and even reverse the demyelination of her brain and spinal cord.
I am definitely going to check this out.
Edit: Yep, I've had a look and this is a diet I can live with. I'm going to give this a try. Thank you again.
