Areas of the body affected by Lipedema, such as the hips, thighs and ankles, are almost completely resistant to diet and exercise no matter how few calories are consumed or burned. Patients that suffer from Lipedema should eat well balanced, nutritious food to reduce inflammation and avoid putting on unnecessary weight.
Some patients have reported that their symptoms worsened after eating processed foods, drinking alcohol, or foods that contain yeast. Other patients claim that inflammation improved by avoiding certain foods and including healthier choices into their daily diet. The table below outlines dietary alternatives as well as foods to avoid.
