As part of my prep for my Defecography,the day before my liquid diet I have to have a low residue diet. What all would that include? Any examples of what to eat?

Things to eat: white rice, white bread, potatoes (no skin), noodles, hard boiled eggs, saltines, white fish or chicken breast, canned peaches, bananas. (I think of low res as a mostly white food diet..... but I've been pretty restricted, and so there are probably things that others can eat on this..)

Don't eat: raw vegetables, whole grains, beans, red meat, fried things.... things that are hard to digest.

Others can fill in more, this is a start.
