So I went to the doctor yesterday and he put me on a new diet to see if it will help some of my issues that I have been having.

I am not allowed to have:
*All milk products
*All processed foods
*All diet products
*Whole grain breads & cereals
*Nothing with seeds

SO....what am I allowed to eat???? Shock

Vegetables and meat?
Visit my website:

I went from morbidly obese to being the owner of TABDIG - a weight loss coaching service that helps people worldwide losing weight. It's been an amazing journey. From October 4th 2010 to April 3rd 2012 I lost half my body weight - 80 kilos/170 lbs. Since then, I have had two cosmetic surgeries to remove excess skin. I have now quadrupled my strength, gained several kilos in muscle mass, and today I focus on building muscle, optimizing my diet, living healthy and helping people to reach the very same goals. I am stronger, healthier, thinner, happier! If you feel that you need help losing weight, don't hesitate to send me an inbox message.

Almond milk, soy milk, soy-based products, rice, potatoes, sweet potatoes, anything made with cassava flour, fresh fruits and vegetables (with the seeds removed of course), any meats.

They have a lot of rice-based products on the market now that they market to people who are on a gluten free diet. I would definetely check that out.

I'm not entirely sure what constitutes "processed" and not processed. I would get specific recommendations from your physician.
I'm back on track!
Lost 50 lbs. in 2011, gained a bit back after pregnancy.
If did it once, I can do it again!

Beans and legumes, lots of veggies and fruit, meat and seafood. Butter is a milk product. Coconut oil is great for cooking.

There's TONS to eat! Smile Meats, seafood, rices, veggies, seedless fruits (oranges, grapes, bananas, pears). Breakfast might be eggs, bacon & bananas. Lunch could be a salad with greens, avocado, mushrooms, carrots, grilled chicken & oil/vinegar dressing. Dinner could be sauteed/steamed veggies, rice and grilled fish.

Does oatmeal count as whole grain cereal?

low-fat ground turkey for meatloaf, cut out the bread crumbs. To stretch the recipe and add a blast of nutrition, mix plenty of chopped and sautéed onions, carrots, bell peppers, mushrooms, or other vegetables into the turkey.... low-carb, protein-rich "turkey meatloaf" that's light on calories and big on taste

Maybe a silly question, but has your doctor set you up with a dietician? If not you may want to consult with one. I went through this when I was first experiencing food sensitivities. Cut off most of the food they thought were the offending culprits. Then slowly introduced them back one by one. The ones I could not tolerate at all where the ones that were eliminated from my diet. Good luck, have fun reading labels.

Agree - a recommendation like this should have come with a referral to a dietician.

Do you have IBS? Atkins can help if you do it correctly. There are 4 stages with gradually increasing carbs. It has done wonders for my digestion and weight.

The doctor was thinking I had IBS but it came down to me being miserable so I stopped with the crazy diet he wanted me on. It didnt take into account my reactive hypoglycimea. So now I am starting all over and trying to build a plan buy listening to my body. I will check out the Atkins Diet. Smile Thank you everyone!
