Experimental: Anti-inflammatory whole food
Included food items will include a defined minimum diversity of fruits, vegetables, and nuts based on complementary phytonutrient contents, particularly those rich in phenolic compounds such as ellagitannins and sulforaphanes. Selected herbs (e.g., curcumin), fermented foods, fats (e.g., avocado), and oils (e.g., olive oil) will be permitted or encouraged. Recommended portions of complex carbohydrates (50% - 60%) and lean proteins (20% - 30%) will form the basis of weight-based caloric needs. The goal is to have 5 servings of vegetables, 2 fruits per day, and 5 vegetable color groups per week. Vegetables with high insoluble fiber content will be cooked instead of eaten raw.
Other: Anti-inflammatory diet
Anti-inflammatory diet with increased vegetables, fruit, plant polyphenols, lean proteins, foods rich in omega-3s and unsaturated fats as well as decreased in processed refined foods.
Active Comparator: Regular Diet
Patients in the control diet arm will be counseled to continue their regular diets and focus on recording all food intake.
Other: Regular diet
Focus on food journal and recording all food intake.
