Healthy Eating and Parkinson's

Posted on May 10, 2018

Healthy eating can be difficult after receiving a Parkinson's diagnosis. Some medications for Parkinson's require timing your meals and reducing your intake of specific foods. Changing your diet can be challenging. Finding the motivation to eat right when you have Parkinson's is best done alongside others who understand the obstacles and rewards.

On MyParkinsonsTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with Parkinson's disease, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Healthy eating is one of the top 10 topics most discussed.

Here are some question-and-answer threads about healthy eating:

Is anyone having problems with gaining weight?

I am having problems swallowing at times and feel full fast so am not eating as much as I should. I have found I have to stay away from a lot of protein as it interferes with my medications. Has anyone else noticed a large weight drop?

Here are some conversations about healthy eating:

I am still exercising, eating as healthy as I can and keep away from stressful situations as much as possible after slipping up with my diet.

I tried having a decent meal, 3-ounce lean steak, small baked potato, mushrooms, and broccoli.

The tremors really showed up when I was eating.

Can you relate?
