When Bob told me that the Swank diet was nonsense, I had already come to the same conclusion myself after reading the publication. The Swank diet basically believes that people with MS should not intake fat; the Wiki says “low in saturated fat,” but the people who I knew who were on it back in the mid to late 90s said they avoided all fat. The mere idea of someone who is having the myelin stripped from their central nervous system avoid fat is bizarre. Myelin is by definition 70-80% lipids (fat) . How would one ever hope to repair the myelin if the weren’t consuming the building blocks necessary to do so? Oh, that’s right. Back then, the common belief was that you simply DIDN’T remyelinate. I never heard Bob say that, however.
