    I had tomato and basil soup for dinner and I can’t get to sleep due to cramping and nausea.

    I’m seeing the Dietitian on the 25th of this month. My fasting bs have jumped to 10 on this low residue diet.

    I was on a low residue diet prior to surgery for bowel cancer. I was told that if it grows above the ground I couldn't eat it (cabbage, sprouts etc) but if it grew below the ground I could - carrots, turnips etc.

    It's just low fibre, low roughage so things like baked beans (hi fibre) are out, but meat is OK.
