The Liberation Treatment: A whole new approach to MS

A very interesting report on a possible new approach to MS. I hope more people jump in to see where this will go. It appears most of the "Main Stream" is dismissing it at this point.

Happy Thanksgiving

Well the holidays are here and everything is flying about. Where to go, what to do and what to eat? What new foods am I going to try this holiday season on my diet?

It can be hard traveling on a strict diet. People in general do not understand that in my/our position(s) it's not a casual diet to lose a few pounds. I am on this diet until there is a cure for MS. To put it plainly, there is ZERO cheating, as in NONE, EVER. It has now become part of my life.

After a year plus on the diet I still get friends, family or others that say things like " have it just this one time" or "it won't hurt you to have this here and there". The answer is YES IT WILL. While I know all mean well and in their own way they are trying to make me feel better, please try to understand. It's not an option for me or others on this diet. If you want to help those of us on the Swank MS Diet cook and put out foods we can eat. For me it has become easy to walk past the butter laden foods, cookies, cakes, pies, ice cream (Did I just write that? miss my ice cream...) and all the other stuff that I use to eat with abandon during holidays.

So to move on, what will I have for my thanksgiving holiday you ask? Well everything from turkey, potatoes, salad, corn, stuffing, bread, and homemade pineapple upside-down cake with frozen vanilla low-fat yogurt. We Swankers don't have to miss much as long as we do our research, planning and do a lot of home cooking. What are you having this year?

In closing I would like to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving.
