I did something different with the data. I looked at all the foods I eat in the charts, and wrote down my foods in 3 categories: Greater than 500, 100-500, and below -100 (limit these) I will eat more excellent foods with a 500+ rating like wild salmon, mackerel and sardines. I will eat increase eating the foods I already eat in the 100-500, and eat less of foods below -100 which are mostly processed junk foods like soda, candy, potato chips, doughnuts etc. (I didn't bother with foods from -100 to 100 because they are sort of neutral).
This book may be a great read for someone with an inflammatory disease, someone who eats a standard American diet or someone really interested in nutrition.
I did glimpse inside. Packed with what duped big pharma M.D.s can't tell us for either sworn secrecy or simple ignorance. Their big pharma-run medical education system and the same big pharma-owned and heavily Congress-lobbied national synthetic drugs licensing boards will never cut into their profit margins to reveal these simple facts that lengthen life, improve quality of life,. and greatly lessen maladies and severe death-threats caused by the highly inflammatory foods grocery stores market as safe edibles.
In chapter three she outlines a flexible and easy-to-follow eating plan. You are able to easily modify an eating plan for yourself, so that you can achieve weight loss, reduce pain and allergies, prevent disease and slow the ageing process; all great reasons to watch what you eat. There are a few quizzes so to speak that also help you find the level/plan you need to start with, and some target values to help you stay on track. There is lots of information on meal planning. Then there are some great recipes and even a recipe worksheet (page 60) so that you can work out the IF Rating for your own recipes. She even has tips for calculation of recipes. Using a recipe worksheet Monica shows how you can modify a recipe to realize a higher IF Rating. Over all I found the book very easy to read and understand.
"The Inflammation-Free Diet Plan" is a great multifocal resource. It:
- explains the role of diet in inflammation
- provides inflammatory ratings for many common foods and ingredients
- provides sample daily diets to reach the goal inflammation factor for people looking for general or therapeutic diet intervention
- provides tasty recipes ("Very Veggie Lasagna" was a hit with three generations at the supper table last night)
The only thing I can think of as a "negative" is that some of the daily food plans have rather peculiar food pairings: broccoli (in different presentations) for both lunch and supper one day, one meal consisting of two salads, snacks that are heavy one day, very light the next.
Still, this is an excellent book (particularly with the related website [...]) to begin understanding the role of nutrition in inflammation, and making guided dietary adjustments.
