So.. ive been on here for awhile and had been switching around to different diets and i was keen on sticking with an Ideal Protein Type Diet and my idea was to go right back on it after Christmas and New Years, however, two weeks prior to Christmas, i came down with some severe stomach issues which landed me in the hospital three times and a diagnosis of "gastritis" or so they say..however, the doctor still isnt 100% sure that its actually the correct diagnosis and so they are testing out all these stomach medications and stuff on me trying to figure out what its not and what it is..Meanwhile...thus far, i have had to make severe changes to my diet....which is leaving me in a bit of a bind because i have no idea what diet i can accurately follow now due to the fact that its so restricted..So here is the list of foods i cant eat:
Pop of any kind
Dairy of any kind
Any food containing gluten or wheat
Acidic foods including fruits with peels..the exception is blueberries and low acid fruit juices such as apple juice(with no added sugar)
Veggies that cause gas: aka: broccoli asparagus ect..
Sugar beverages or foods containing lots of sugar
Foods containing lots of oil and are high in fat
Proteins that are not easily digested such as red meat and chicken along with nuts.
So what can i have?
Coconut milk, carrot juice, spinach juice
Sugar free jello
Chicken broth or broth based soups that contain no noodles or meats
Potatoes with nothing on them
Almonds(in a non dairy based beverage)
Sugar free pudding(but not chocolate flavoured)
So far, this is the list of possible foods i can eat without causing issues...
So any suggestions for a diet program?
Oh..and Glucerna and Ensure that are dairy free are also available to drink
and also...high carb diets actually seem to make me gain weight...or not lose weight.
