I am not sure what ? means.
Perhaps you did not read my answer or it did not come through
Here it is again.
eat to live is not the Medditerranean diet. I will explain as I know Dr. Furhman well. His diet is an anti-inflammatory, nutrient dense diet, which he calls a nutritarian diet. It has far less pro-inflammatory elements than does a standard MEdditerranean diet.
I have a different answer for you, in fact.
You need an anti inflammatory diet, or you need to modify the mediterranean diet to cut out its inflammatory foods, such as pasta and any refined carbs or sugars. And, in many cases, too many animal products.
The list of books I give you will have the scientific citations for this.
This is stricter than the Med diet.
The diet, in order of preference in quantity, should look like this
whole fruit, beans and peas
Whole grains no yeasted breads, dry cereals or anything refined
Seeds and nuts, but cut out seeds if you have any diverticulosis.
A little tofu or tempeh daily
A little high quality soy or coconut milk yogurt
The soluble fiber in this strategy will stabilized colon function in about 6 to 8 weeks, then about 2 or three helpings of animal foods a week, preferably fish, can be added back.
See the books: Eat to Live, Super Immunity, and An End to Diabetes by Dr. Joel Fuhrman, for instructions on this type of diet.
In addition, reducing inflammation is a comprehensive approach.
Any chronic infection must be eliminated, teeth are often a culprit, and gum disease is a big culprit.
In addition bowel dysfunction and inflammation needs to be addressed
Any hormonal /neurotransmitter dysfunction must be addressed: and if your TSH is above 1, you are being under treated for your thyroid, according to a number of studies in treated patients.
Toxicity must be addressed along with bio transformation: your ability to eliminate toxins.
Cellular and physical structural issues, as well as stress levels must be addressed.
