I am trying Dr. Kaufman's diet and wondering on a few things:
 
1.  What kind of bagels and muffins can we eat?
2.  Is whole grain pasta ok or only whole wheat?
3.  Can I use a little brown sugar on my oatmeal?
4.  What kinds of breads, crackers and cereals do you eat?
5.  Can I use non-stick spray (like Pam and such)?
 
Thank you in advance.  I'm so hungry!  lol

Bagels are generally lower fat than muffins, so they are better. Any kind of whole grain is fine. Sugars are fine too. I have been eating cooked oatmeal with ground flax seed, skim milk, honey and blueberries. Berries are fine once you are through the induction phase, their acidity is balanced by the milk. Quaker Oatmeal Squares cereal is also good. I buy whole grain bakery bread, slice it up and keep it in the freezer so I can toast a piece or two at any time. Triscuit crackers are good. Non-stick spray is fine, it really lowers the fat.

Once done with the induction phase, I find this an easy and healthy diet to follow.

Thank you so much Sunbeam. It's so hard to be so restricted and I find myself feeling very sorry for myself that I can't eat what I really want. What kind of milk do you use on your cereal (and is this on the induction phase?)

I wonder if I will ever get to eat the things I love!

Koufman allows 2%, but I stick with skim. I've been drinking skim milk for years, and I'd rather allow myself a little fat elsewhere, like a dab of butter on my bread.

I tend to do better with gluten free. Gluten is a fatty protein found in wheat. They make gluten free everything. I stick with soy milk and soy ice cream which is low in fat. Sugar is ok, in moderation for me.

I've never even thought of going Gluten free, though I see it all the time. Is it hard to find gluten free products? I really need my carbs! pasta, bread, cereal, at least a little of it. I can't get used to soy milk.

I find gluten free in my grocery store in the organic section. They make gluten free pasta, english muffins, crackers, pretzals, cookies etc. Almond Milk is good, I use that more.

I just got the book today and it's a little overwhelming (I'm a cook but it's a lot of ingredients and i need to eat faster than that!). Thanks for this thread it answered a lot of questions for me. I would like to know if i can have a bowl of cereal and if so what kinds are ok? I have so many cravings and cereal is one of them.

What can I put on a bagel??

I should really read the book but it's not really strong on the simple stuff :)

Where can I find a list of the foods that are part of the Dr Kaufman diet or other nutritional info that is GERD/nissen wrap friendly? I have to completely change what I eat now that I've had the nissen fundoplication. Are there any other diets out there that are effective for reflux, trouble swallowing, and prevention of weight gain? I've lost most of the muscle that I had from working out because I'v been unable to exercise for about 5 months.
Thank you very much for your help

There is a separate Koufman diet thread.  The foods for the two-week induction diet are listed on the first post.  I have also put a lot of additional information on that page that I believe will be helpful to you.
