Lost weight fast

I lost 17 lbs. in 1 month on a gluten free, egg free, dairy free, meat free diet. And I wasn't hungry! But running out of recipes so I need some help. Feeling so much better everything is clearing up for me.

Multi-symptom diets

My fiance' has diabetes, 2 strokes, 2 mild heart attacks, triple bypass, gall stones, renal failure, on dialysis, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and congestive heart failure; he's only 51 years old. So he is supossed to go by about 5 or 6 different diets that seem to cancel each other out. Any help I can get on what to feed him, please let me know. Everything he likes is now off limits, and I can't keep feeding him cheese omelets and pancakes, lol.
Thanks,
Jen

I Have Severe Esophagus Problems - Can't Swallow

When I was expecting my second child I began to have problems eating raw fruits and vegetables. I was also being awakened almost every night with chest pain and experiencing awful heartburn in the daytime. That was in 1974. The chest pain was esophageal spasms, the heartburn was reflux, the dysphagia the result of achalasia. I had experimental surgery in 1977 to cut the muscles of half of my esophagus (a long myotomy) in an effort to stop the increasingly debilitating spasms. Yet, here it is 2012, I am 60 years old and I cannot eat solid food at all. Strangely, I can eat soda crackers with butter - go figure?!
I can offer you tips and recipes learned "the hard way" over the past 37 years to help you get adequate nutrition with some "flavour".
I am very new to JAP, I only registered an hour or so ago,so I have much to learn about posting & sharing recipes and so on. I pray that this will be the beginning of something mutually beneficial.
