Anti-inflammatory diet plan

Everybody wants to live a healthy and fit life, a life without any illness or disease, a life that is active and moving. In this process of staying healthy lifelong, even researches have been working on to find a common link between many unrelated health conditions. After years and months of studies and examinations it could be found that inflammation is the common answer. Inflammation is the body’s biological mechanism to protect itself that fights and removes harmful elements, like pathogens and other irritants and dead cells and also initiates the healing process. Researches have proven that people with chronic inflammation have higher chances of developing certain health related problems like heart diseases, cancer and other auto immune diseases.

Fortunately, we have the benefit of food and exercise with which we could do a lot against inflammation. Dieticians and food experts says that by incorporating and eliminating certain foods from our daily diets we could take care of the problems of inflammation, and such food plan is called the Anti-Inflammatory Diet Plan.


Incorporating your diet with anti-inflammatory foods is the key to this diet plan and way to a healthy lifestyle. This diet plan helps you eliminating inflammatory foods like peanuts, red meat, white sugar, deep fried foods and foods that contain artificial sweeteners, chemicals, trans fat and refined carbs. These foods triggers inflammation in our body and lead to weight gain, digestive problems, skin irritations, drowsiness and diseases such as diabetes and cancer.
The anti-inflammatory diet plan consists of foods that are rich in natural antioxidants and fights and prevents inflammation, and thereby reducing the harm from diseases.
Dieticians suggests that when you are on an anti-inflammatory diet plan you should always try to find alternatives or substitutes for some of your favorite foods that are not so good for you. Say for e.g. instead of having a bowl of pasta that is high in gluten, have some squash and zucchini noodles and instead of having bread with jam and butter for breakfast have some protein filled smoothie.

As a strict rule reduce and if possible eliminate sugary carbs like artificially sweetened sports drinks, breads, pasta, soft drinks, sweetened yoghurt, white rice that cause inflammation. Adopting an anti-inflammatory diet plan does not mean you cannot enjoy good and delicious foods. You have a whole lot of choices from tomatoes, leafy vegetables, fatty fish, lentils, whole grains, fruits, turmeric, sweet potatoes, beets, broccoli, chicken and carrot amongst the many to choose from.
