This plan sounds very restrictive---too restrictive to be healthy. Your doctor has given you lots of numbers and just a list of NO foods. This is not a menu plan. I doubt that the doctor realizes it is practically impossible to use these restrictive guidelines and plan meals and snacksl.
Call your doctor and ask for real meal plans using these guidelines. OR better yet, ask the doctor for a referral to see a Registered Dietitian in your area who can truely help meet your nutrition needs.

Okay, a low carb, low protein, low fat diet doesn't sound very healthy to me; what is his reasoning for this? Have you asked him for a referral to a registered dietician who can take these restrictions and create a plan for you?

Wow, this is a bit weird. Most doctors who recommend low carb say to even supplement with salt. For me, I used to have to worry about salt in my food, but now I can eat lots of it no problem as long as I keep the carbs low. I recommend cooking your own food as much as possible, because it seems like everything in a box or a can, comes with additives like salt, msg, etc., which contain sodium. Maybe instead of the salmon you can buy a bag of frozen fish filets and just cook them yourself. I like to add onions and hot peppers.
Dr has me following 200 mg / sodium per meal /snack ... and low carbs
and low gylcemic foods gluten free foods low fat (transfats less than 1.5 g ) low protein 3 to 6 oz per meal
lots of veggies (with spices .. any spices)
toss out the sea salt -- (not good for me ) no fried foods no processed meats no dairy (high in fat) unless skim milk or that laughing cow cheese no pork no beef no sugars no pasta, no sauces , no salad dressing high in sodium unless balsamic vinegar.. (sighs) lemon juice even has 1 mg of salt (who knew?)
I checked the albacore tuna i had it is 1/2 can 200 mg sodlum .. sheesh ..
lots of water -- lots of celery, cucs, asparagus (helps with water retention) so been told .
good grief what do i eat... is there any guidelines to amount of fiber per meal /snack....
its tricky thing trying to balance everything - very tricky
are there any books or websites i can read up on some maybe simple tasty recipes that meet my food needs??
