I have been hearing that a new tool to loosing weight is to include one or two cleansing days per week, does doing this put extra stress on the kidneys? What is the best advice for loosing weight with kidney disease?
I highly recommend that you see a registered dietitian to help you lose weight. They will not only understand your special circumstances regarding your diet, they can provide you with guidance that is safe and effective. Insurance often covers outpatient counseling with a dietitian when you have diagnosis.
What you need is a plan that you can stick with and that is safe.
