Whole Food Based: A whole food anti inflammatory diet is best. Fresh fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, whole grains, nuts, legumes, and healthy fats like omega 3 fatty acids found in fish. Avoid processed foods, artificial sweeteners, trans fats, and artificial coloring and chemical as much as possible.

Diet: It depends. It's not fasting for sure! you will need to work with a dietitian to get one established for you. If you are overweight, it is one, if you are normal weight person, it is different. There are many ada diets but again, each one needs to be individually tailored to your needs.
