I agree about having your doctor recommend a registered dietitian. When my blood sugar was a little higher than my doctor liked, he asked if I wanted him to recommend a dietitian to help me work on my food choices. However, I already knew exactly that I should and shouldn't eat (and how to read food labels and which carbs and good and which are bad, etc.). I just wasn't using that knowledge to help myself. But, if I hadn't already known which foods were going to help me and which ones would be bad for my system I would have gotten a lot from a professional. I'll bet someone who is trained for this could find a good variety of foods that you could eat.

Just be careful with the term "nutritionist", as really anyone can call themselves that. A registered dietitian has specific training and has to be licensed, so I'd definitely go down that route if you can.

Thanks for the advice!! I'm going to see who I can get to see first either the nutritionist or the registered dietitian.
I eat very few vegetables since I either don't like them or they don't agree with me. I am managing to lose weight. I just concentrate on proteins and fats, and working within my calorie and macronutrient limits on Sparkpeople.
Maybe a meeting with a nutritionist can help you come up with ideas that will meet your needs.

Based on your situation, I'd be concerned not only that you're eating healthy, but also that your body is getting all of the nutrients you need on a daily basis since your options are so restricted. I'd recommend asking your doctor for a referral to see a registered dietitian, who can help create a meal plan specific to your needs.
Hope that helps,

I had a long whiny post written and my computer refreshed the screen and I lost the whole thing :) lucky for all of us lol!
So I'll make this post a little shorter and to the point :)
I have several digestive issues ibs/ lactose and gluten intolerance/severe acid reflux and no gall bladder to name a few. Therefore basically whenever I eat I'm sick. Out of all the wonderful fruit in the world all I can eat are bananas, apples and strawberries. Out of all the veggies in the world I can eat carrots, celery, lettuce and corn.
My question is where can I find healthy easy recipes that I will not get sick eating and yet allow me to drop the 200lbs I need to lose? I've already lost 60 but it was because I didn't realize I was lactose intolerant and had milk or cheese everyday and I was sick for a few months. Granted I did keep it off for 2 years now :) I do exercise 4-5 times a week. I'm on a swim team that practices 2-3 times a week and on the other days I hit the bike. Activity is not an issue with me. Yes I may be 200lbs over weight but Im in pretty good shape oh yes I do weights sometimes too so activity isn't the problem food is.
Im tired and frustrated that I try something new like the Spanish rice I had last night and I was sick the entire night. I'm also tired of eating ground chicken and lettuce every day twice a day.
Any ideas or advice or recipe website suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks for reading!! I'm sorry I was a bit whiney but phew! Luckily you didn't have to read my lost post lol!!
