    Disappointed

    I think the author does a pretty good job of explaining what inflammation is but I was so disappointed in the types of food she allows you to eat on this plan. Her entire system is really hard to follow and very discouraging. I would much rather follow Dr. Weil's Anti-Inflammatory Food Pyramid. It is easy to understand and very positive.

    Disappointed Overall

    I love the over-all message in this book, that you don't have to eliminate any food from your diet totally but that you can minimize any inflammatory foods' effect by also including highly ant-inflammatory foods. I had totally eliminated peanuts, caffein, eggplant, potatoes and tomatoes but it's hard when you eat with others who love those things. If I can eat them on occasion and pair them with things like chili powder, ground cayene, garlic and onion powder, fresh ginger root, tabasco and/or onion flakes, man, I'm there! I was surprised to find tomatoes in the positive range (anti-inflammatory) as it seems everywhere else it's a no-no. And peanuts (another common allergen) are absent from her list.

    I think her plan of journaling everything AND figuring out everything's IF rating (+fat grams and carb grams) is a little unrealistic, especially given the limitations of her list of foods and IF ratings. I read the book excitedly, couldn't wait to get to the list of foods and IF ratings, but when I got to the list, I was sorely disappointed. I thought there were some weird things included, such as "Froot Loops." (Is it spelled that way?) Is someone concerned with their diet really going to eat that? I eat a vegan diet, so some of my staples, such as tempeh, seitan and tofu, were not there.

    Overall, I was disappointed, but only after reading the list. Like I said, the over-all idea is great. There needs to be a place for an updated list to appear, a website or something. It will affect what and how I eat, so that's good.
