sonofsmoke's Journal, 22 March 2013

HELP!!! For the last 18 years I have dealt with kidney failure. Over the years I have gained 180 pounds. Recently, I decided to make a change in my life. I lost close to 30 lbs. I was doing conventional hemodialysis at a clinic. I am no longer able to do hemodialysis. I have started peritoneal dialysis (pd). This wouldn't be so bad, but I have to carry an extra 2 kilos of fluid at all times. Also, the worst part is the solution is concentrated with dextrose. With the help of my pd staff we were able to come up an approximate calorie count of my daily fluid exchanges. It came out to be approx. 750 calories per day. I am trying to maintain a diet of 1500 - 2000 calories a day which is difficult when almost half of my allowance is taken without eating a single bite. I would like some advice on how to keep my current calorie goal without losing out on my protein or feeling hungry all the time.

Diet Calendar Entry for 22 March 2013:
1506 kcal Fat: 86.86g | Prot: 88.06g | Carb: 95.08g.   Breakfast: Soft Boiled Egg, Coffee with Cream and Sugar, Turkey Bacon. Lunch: Turkey Burger. Dinner: Ground Beef 73/27. Snacks/Other: Yogurt, Blackberries, Peaches. more...

You could always try calorie bars or protein shakes, and supplement that with healthy fats, like peanut butter. Protein like eggs early in the morning will help keep you full throughout the day.

Thanks Theblurch I have been investigating protein bars. I have to be careful because a renal diet can be very restrictive.
