Okay, you know what’s funny?
I literally just wrote an article “The Paleo Diet and Narcolepsy: What You Need To Know” about a “Paleo Narco,” a young woman with narcolepsy who found herself almost living symptom-free thanks in part to her strict, Paleo-inspired dietary plan.
At the end of that post, I encouraged people to experiment with their own diets—see how their narcolepsy might be affected.
Well, I guess you can consider this post “Narcolepsy and Diet Part II,” because I just stumbled on an article that provides its readers with some much appreciated dietary hints.
The article, “Living with Narcolepsy: Helpful Diet Changes,” offers an easy-to-chew amuse-bouche of food and lifestyle changes, including:
- Saying bye to refined sugars
- Limiting alcohol
- Setting regular meal times
- Eating whole grains
- Avoiding pre-bedtime binge eats
But that’s just the first course.
If reading any of that whets your appetite for food facts, The New York Times has an entrée made of in-depth dietary recommendations.
So dig in! I mean, talk to your doctors first, but after that, test your palette with these tips, and who knows? Maybe you’ll find a food plan that works as well for you as Cristina Graves’ diet works for her!
