Dr. Swank's research has been disputed by some, due to lacking documented double blind testing. For that reason, many in the medical community do not accept the Swank Diet as a treatment for MS.
The diet is a very simple diet
1.Saturated fat should not exceed 15 grams per day.
2.Unsaturated fat (oils) should be kept to 20-50 grams per day.
3.No red meat for the first year. After the first year, 3 oz. of red meat is allowed once per week.
4.Dairy products must contain 1% or less butterfat unless otherwise noted. No processed foods containing saturated fat.
6.No processed foods containing saturated fat.
7. A good source of omega-3 (oily fish, cod liver oil, cod liver oil tablets etc) along with a multi-vitamin and mineral supplement are recommended daily.
There are no restrictions on wheat,gluten or dairy, but any foods that that an ms sufferer is intolerant to should be avoided.
