Hi looking for some help with my diet I've been looking at the Koufman diet but a bit confused with which foods are best I'm on a low income which restricts me with some foods. I've been experimenting with this for now any feedback and pointers to where I might me going wrong would greatly be appreciated.
Breakfast is:
All Bran with 300ml semi skimmed milk
mid morning apple
Dinner: Chicken soup with 2 x pieces brown bread
Tea: pitta bread, chicken curry
Supper: chicken lettuce sandwich (brown bread)
I had been filling in between meals with ginger nut biscuits which seemed to soothe my throat but am unsure if they maybe bad for my stomach
Thanks in advance John

I don't think you are eating anything bad, but more vegetables would be better. Bananas and melon are the least acidic fruits, but an apple is ok if it doesn't bother you. You can also reduce the acid of anything by eating a couple of tums.

I have the Koufman Diet book too but my Dr. said to stay away from some of the things she suggested so I am going to have to ask him next time I see him for further clarfication. Be careful of carbs like breads and pastas, sugars like corn syrup and dairy. My diet consists of chicken, turkey, lean meat, vegetables such as carrots, edamame (soy bean), broccoli, string beans, peas, lettuce, other green vegetables etc apples, melons, almonds, honey, chamamille tea, potatoes seem to be ok, oats, sometimes other fruits like mangos, bananas (not when they are green). The other night I made chicken coated in raw honey with crushed almonds and I baked it. Pretty good. Be care***l with food that has preservatives....those are acidic. Some grocery stores have their own line of organic food and it is not as expensive as Whole Foods (which is ridiculously expensive).
