I am on renal dialysis--and I follow a very restrictive diet with low potassium, low phosporos, 32 oz of fluid per day. So basically I've been eating the wrong kinds of foods like white bread and less veggies and fruits because I HAVE to. I don't know what to do--my dietician is great but I'm not losing any weight I suspect because of the white flour intake and carb overload in this diet. I am at my wits end!

Being on a renal diet will be extra challenging. In your case you will have to ignore all the post to push fluids! Shock I think you are on the right track by getting rid of the white bread & bad carbs. You can do this! It won't be easy, but you can do it! You are worth it!Laughing Laughing Laughing

have you expressed your concerns to your dietician? If you have and she is not helping address your concerns, ask for a different dietician.
I firmly believe that no matter what your health or condiiton there HAS to be a healthy eating plan and one that you can lose weight on. Weight Watchers is a great old tried and true plan. Im sure you can adapt it to your special needs.

Good luck to you!

Constipation issues
I have great results with Magnesium whenever I have issues like this. There are many powders out there that you can start with a lower dose and then increase as needed, and most taste pretty good too.

This is a good starting point, but you really need an exercise plan to maximize the results. Even if it is just walking. Get moving!
