This week I came across some exciting research on matters that are close to my heart, on Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and diet. I was sent details on special BANT Student Network only offers from our friends at Ingeneius. And I share a healthy barbeque recipe, no charred meat here!
Could Multiple Sclerosis be Reversed with a Fasting Mimicking Diet?
Research published in the journal Cell by researcher from the University of Southern California showed that a fasting-micking diet (FMD) had positive effects on the mouse MS model, experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE). The FMD involved cycles of a low calorie and low protein diet for 3 days out of 7. After multiple FMD cycles improvement were seen in the EAE affected mice and authors noted FMD, “caused complete recovery for 20 percent of the animals.” Read more here.

Healthy BBQ Recipe – Salmon with red Thai curry
1 side of skin-on salmon
3 tbsp red Thai curry paste
3 limes (juice)
1 tbsp fish sauce
Fresh coriander (optional)
Mix all liquid ingredients together in a bowl. Lay salmon skin side down on a large sheet of foil. Score the fish flesh diagonally 4 or 5 times. Spread the sauce over the fish. Sprinkle over chopped fresh coriander if you want. Bring the edges of the foil together so the fish is enclosed and lying flat. Place on the BBQ for 20 – 25 minutes until cooked all the way through. Enjoy!
