Apples to Zucchini Will Help You Manage a Low Protein Diet

Apples to Zucchini is the perfect resource to help you manage a low protein diet. Even if you do not plan to go on the very low protein diet recommended by Dr. Walser but are only moderately restricting your protein intake, you can benefit from using the book. An analysis of protein, calories, sodium, potassium, and phosphorous content is included for each recipe to help you incorporate them into your low protein diet plan.

Often the emphasis of a restricted diet is on what you cannot eat. This book focuses on the best of what you can eat.

Armed with specific recommendations from a healthcare professional, you can use the book to help discover that you can enjoy a vast array of wonderful tasting and healthy foods and recipes that are naturally low in protein. The book will show you just how varied and interesting a low protein diet can be using a wide variety of fruits and vegetables and only a limited number of commercially made special low protein products.

While the authors are not experts in kidney disease, they are experts in low protein cooking through a combined 50 years of managing low protein diets for a rare genetic metabolic disorder called phenylketonuria (PKU). The very low protein diet for kidney disease recommended by Dr. Walser is comparably low in protein to the low protein diet used for PKU treatment. Though the diet is not easy, it is a challenge that is met successfully everyday by thousands of children, teens, and adults who live with metabolic disorders and chronic kidney disease.
