With more then 20 million Americans and over 200 million worldwide, afflicted with Chronic Kidney Disease, at least 40% of who are also diabetics, it is important to provide nutritional options that fit these lifestyles. Traditionally, those with failing organs are told to severely restrict the numbers and the amounts of foods containing substantial amounts of certain minerals, or carbohydrates, in attempts to avert potentially severe metabolic imbalances. Such restrictions often lead to dietary confusion, a chronic state of malnutrition, anemia, and weight loss. Food, Fuel, Fitness -- offers the reader a genuine opportunity to positively impact their nutritional profile and health, with user-friendly instructions and exciting recipe "starter" ideas.
The enhanced A Word About section addressed a few inconspicuous places minerals may be lurking, as well as the impact mineral reduction techniques have on carbohydrates, fats, protein, and amino acid compositions of selected foods. And for those who may be concerned about the flavor enhancing sodium phosphate food additives now found in many meats and poultry in the U.S.A, as well as in other countries, the impact on the meat's mineral level is discussed in this chapter, as well as in the respective meat section.
Particularly impressive is the sheer number of foods tested and reviewed. By following these carefully researched and effective techniques, healthful, flavorful meals can be enjoyed every day.

The joys of eating rediscovered. When you have kidney disease your health is literally on your plate (what you can and can not eat). This book helps you reintroduce many of the foods you are told are now 'off limits'. Food mineral reduction is easy and fast. It gets you from the refrigerator to the table in no time. My mother's blood mineral values were normal after using these instructions to prepare her food. And it tasted good too!
