Pro inflammatory foods

I'm still doing research on which type of eating is best for managing pain and inflammation. It seems that fried foods, starchy foods, and sugary foods all promote inflammation in the body. I found this list online and it's a good place to start if you are trying to decrease inflammatory foods in your diet. I am going to try to eliminate or reduce my consumption of these foods:

  • Bagels

  • Breads, rolls, baked goods

  • Candy

  • Cake

  • Cookies

  • Cereals (except old fashioned oatmeal)

  • Cornstarch

  • Corn bread, corn muffins

  • Corn syrup

  • Crackers

  • Croissants

  • Doughnuts

  • Egg rolls

  • Fast food

  • French Fries

  • Fruit juice—choose the fruit instead

  • Fried foods

  • Flour

  • Granola

  • Hard cheese (except for feta and grating cheeses, such as Romano and Parmesan)

  • Honey

  • Hot dogs

  • Ice cream, frozen yogurt, Italian ices

  • Jams, jellies and preserves

  • Margarine

  • Molasses

  • Muffins

  • Noodles

  • Pancakes

  • Pastry

  • Pie

  • Pita bread

  • Pizza

  • Pasta

  • Popcorn

  • Potatoes

  • Pudding

  • Relish

  • Rice

  • Sherbet

    1. How did it go?

      I have AS as well. I'm 30 years old. I'm trying the NSD. Have you tried to completely eliminate starch, to see what happens to your pain and the progress of AS?

      Hope you're doing great!

    2. Yes, please let us know how it is going. I am 32 and was diagnosed last year with AS. I have been trying to go gluten-free and it seems to be helping a bit. Still need to be better about eliminating the refined sugars, though.

    3. Hi there! I was diagnosed just a week ago with AS and have been researching about this condition. I'm glad I bumped into your blog. I am now in LSD but not seeing any improvement yet. I am yet to cut down sugar. Keep us posted how it's working for you.

      Healthline just designed a virtual guide of the effects of ankylosing spondylitis on the body. You can see the infographic here: http://www.healthline.com/health/ankylosing-spondylitis/effects-on-body

      This is valuable med-reviewed information that can help a person understand how AS will affect their body. I thought this would be of interest to your audience, and I’m writing to see if you would include this as a resource on your page: http://crystalaskicker.blogspot.com/

      If you do not believe this would be a good fit for a resource on your site, even sharing this on your social communities would be a great alternative to help get the word out.

      Thanks so much for taking the time to review. Please let me know your thoughts and if I can answer any questions for you.

      All the best,
