If you are emaciated and your diarrhea is so severe that you are afraid you might not survive long enough to read my book, restrict your diet to the following:
- Municipally-treated tap water from the cold-water tap (no other beverages; no bottled water; no filters or other home water treatments)
- Salt – at least ¾ of a teaspoon every day
- Plain traditional bacon, fried slowly in a stainless steel pan at a low heat (do not use a non-stick pan)
- Plain chicken (with skin) roasted in the oven in stainless steel or oven-proof glass with a lid – no oil, no sauce, no herbs, no seasoning except salt – roast at 300˚F (150˚C) until the meat easily pulls off the bones (at least 1 hour for a single-serving piece; or 2 hours for a small chicken)
- Plain beef or pork with fat still attached (no bone, no butcher’s string) – roasted in the same manner as the chicken
- Ground almond flour to make gravy with the drippings from the roasted poultry or chicken – heat the fat drippings, ground almond and salt in a stainless steel saucepan with the element turned to a low heat, stirring occasionally with a stainless steel spoon until it comes to a boil – then pour it on your roasted meat or chicken
- Raw blanched almonds (they may be fried or roasted in the animal or chicken fat and salted)
- Maple syrup
- Strawberries, blueberries and pomegranate seeds (unless you know you cannot tolerate fruit mold)
- Use only pans and cutlery made of stainless steel and dishes made of glass and china.
In my experience, these are the foods that are least likely to cause diarrhea. I hope that this diet will reduce your symptoms sufficiently to keep you alive and that my book will help you to reduce your symptoms of diarrhea and to identify more dietary options.
Do not swallow pills or medicines of any kind, except those that are prescribed to treat a diagnosed medical condition, because diarrhea is a common side effect of many vitamins, medicines and other ingested treatments. Do not put anything on your lips except pure lanolin.
