Avoid hospital food which is primarily sugars, starches, and PUFAS!!!

A stroke indicates severe levels of inflammation and atherogenesis, and the conventional medical approach will be a low fat, high carb, highly processed foods in a misguided effort to reduce what CW thinks caused the stroke--fat.

A low carb, good fat, anti-inflammatory diet of REAL, paleo foods leaning toward ketogenic has the potential to heal, but it's the exact opposite of what CW would permit a stroke patient.

VB, sorry to hear the news and I hope things turn out okay.

It makes me think of the Jaminet's and Shou-Ching's father died of a stroke at age 62 (PHD dedication).

I thought of this info that is related to stroke and diet:
Saturated Fat REDUCES risk of stroke and heart disease

This study followed 58,453 Japanese adults, aged 40 to 79 at the start of the study, for 14.1 years. The study found that higher saturated fat intake was associated with:
•A 31% reduction in mortality from stroke
•An 18% reduction in mortality from cardiovascular disease

Maybe there are some confounders with these conclusions, although something to consider.

Also, Citicoline (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Citicoline) appears therapeutic in some cases. Eggs, or choline, sounds like the natural food source. It was mentioned in another topic's comments (http://paleohacks.com/questions/164022/paleo-except).

Avoid processed carbs and focus on omega3 rich seafood. Also lots of green plant food.
