to veg or not to veg, semi-veg might be the answer

my digestive system rusts shut sometimes
Multiple Sclerosis is never easy to get used to, every day brings new challenges that your body throws at you. In my case I have been having the usual difficulties with digestion. I have been doing good with taking vitamin supplements (the usual with MSers, Fish Oil, B-12, Multi-Vitamins, cinnamon) but I still have been having difficulty. A few weeks ago I had seen a news story about Bill Clinton and how he improved his health by cutting out red meat, it made enough of an impact on me that it had stuck with me. I weighed the difficulties I might have, I'm cuban and culturally red meat is an important staple to us. But I've gotten my toes wet and so far so good, I decided to be creative and made Baba Ganoush (it was pretty tasty) and like MS it'll be a day by day challenge. I want to clarify, I'm trying a semi-vegetarian lifestyle I still eat fish and poultry but red meat is my only no-no, unlike President Clinton I'm only doing this for my digestion, any weight loss is just a good by-product. I still take daily regimen and my digestion is improving slowly... I'll keep you posted
