This review is from: Fiber Menace (Kindle Edition)
I am already on a low residue diet following emergency surgery for a ruptured colon. It was reassuring to read of the health benefits of a low fibre diet which reduced my anxieties about it having always been a great believer in the benefits of as much fibre as possible. How wrong I was! Carbohydrate intake was explained really well, and not mixing them with protein was an eye opener. Will be looking further into the supplement side of things as I am aware that i am not getting the vitamins that I need on the restricted diet that I have been on for the past two years. Much of what was said in the book I have been doing e.g. lots of white rice and increased protein, although as a life long vegetarian I don't think ill ever be able to eat red meat or poultry. Fish is ok. I also need to consider the info re laxatives, as I live in fear of getting chronically constipated as that's why my colon ruptured, and I still take lactalose to keep things loose.
