I completed the Landmark Forum about a year ago. I still find myself putting things in perspective thru the lens they tought me to see through. Pretty interesting self development approach with deep focus on integrity.
Residue includes any food, including fiber — the undigested part of plants — that remains in your intestinal tract, is not digested and contributes to stool. A low-residue diet limits these foods, reducing the size and number of your stools.
A low-residue diet is closely related to a low-fiber diet. In fact, the two terms are sometimes used interchangeably. Technically, however, they’re not the same thing, as a low-residue diet is more restrictive than is a low-fiber diet.
Your doctor may prescribe a low-residue diet after you’ve had abdominal surgery or if you’re experiencing a flare-up of a digestive problem, such as diverticulitis or inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).
A low-residue diet limits the amount of fiber and other undigested material that passes through your large intestine. As a result, a low-residue diet reduces the size and number of your stools, helping to relieve abdominal pain, diarrhea or flare-ups of certain digestive problems, such as diverticulitis.
Because a low-residue diet can’t provide all the nutrients you need to stay healthy, it should be used for only a short time, as determined by your doctor, before transitioning back to a low-fiber or regular diet.
The following foods can be eaten as part of a low-residue diet:
* Refined breads, cereals, crackers, chips and pasta with less than 1 gram of fiber per serving (Note: Ideally, look for products with zero grams of dietary fiber per serving.)
* White rice
* Vegetable juices without seeds or pulp
* Fruit juices with no pulp
* Milk, yogurt, pudding, ice cream, and cream-based soups and sauces (strained)
* Tender meat, poultry, fish and eggs
* Oil, margarine, butter and mayonnaise
* Smooth salad dressings
* Broth-based soups (strained)
* Jelly, honey and syrup
While consuming a low-residue diet, limit dairy products (such as milk, yogurt, pudding, ice cream, and cream-based soups and sauces) to no more than 2 cups a day.
You should avoid:
* Whole-grain breads, cereals and pasta
* Whole vegetables and vegetable sauces
* Whole fruits, including canned fruits
* Yogurt, pudding, ice cream or cream-based soups with nuts or pieces of fruits or vegetables
* Tough or coarse meats with gristle and luncheon meats or cheese with seeds
* Peanut butter
* Salad dressings with seeds or pieces of fruits or vegetables
* Seeds and nuts
If you’re eating a low-residue diet, a typical one-day menu might look like this.
One-half cup cereal (with 1 gram or less of fiber per serving) with milk
Six to 8 ounces fruit juice without pulp
Two slices low-fiber, refined white bread with seedless jelly or honey
Six to 8 ounces vegetable juice
Six to 8 ounces fruit juice without pulp, or water
Three ounces broiled fish
One-half cup white rice
One cup yogurt
Six to 8 ounces fruit or vegetable juice
Six to 8 ounces fruit juice, vegetable juice or water
One cup broth-based soup (strained)
Three ounces broiled chicken
One-half to 1 cup low-fiber pasta with butter or flavored oil
Eating a low-residue diet can help:
* Relieve symptoms — such as abdominal pain and diarrhea — that result from certain digestive problems, such as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)
* Ease your digestive system after surgery by reducing the number and size of your stools
A low-residue diet can’t provide all the nutrients you need to remain healthy. Therefore, you should use a low-residue diet for only short periods, as directed by your doctor. If you must stay on this diet for a long time, consult a registered dietitian to make sure your nutritional needs are being met.
HUNZA DIET BREAD RECIPE
Hunza Diet Bread is a delicious, dense, chewy bread that’s very nutritious and is almost impervious to spoilage. The following recipe makes a huge batch of approximately 60 (sixty) 2 inch squares, high in protein, vitamins and minerals.
Keeps weeks at room temperature, even longer in the fridge and indefinitely in the freezer. The recipe for this wonderful bread is as follows: –
- * 4 cups of water
- * 3.5 (three & one half) to 4 pounds of natural buckwheat or millet flour
- * 1.5 (one & one half) cups of canola oil
- * 1.5 (one & one half) cups of natural unrefined sugar
- * 16 ounces of honey
- * 16 ounces of molasses
- * 4 ounces of powdered soya milk (half cup)
- * 1 teaspoon sea salt
- * 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- * 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- * 2 teaspoons baking powder (non aluminium)
Hunza Diet Bread has a taste that is very satisfying and chewy all on its own, but you may also add if required, apricots, raisins, chopped walnuts, almonds, sliced dates to the above ingredients. Mix ingredients. Grease and lightly flour cooking pan(s). Ideally use baking trays with about 1 inch high sides. Pour batter in pan(s) half an inch thick over the base. Bake at about 300 degrees farenheit (150 C.) for 1 hour. After cooking, dry the bread in the oven for two (2) hours at a very low heat – 90 degrees farenheit (50 C). After it is cooled tip out and cut into approx 2 inch x 2 inch squares. Store it wrapped in cloth in a container.
You may need to repeat the baking depending on the size of your baking pan, and oven, until all the mixture has been used.
Hunza Diet Bread is made from natural buckwheat or millet flour. It is rich in phosphorous, potassium, iron, calcium, manganese and other minerals, as nothing has been destroyed in the preparation from the wheat. Thus it contains the essential nourishment of the grain. This is why you must ONLY use natural buckwheat or millet flour to make your own Hunza Diet Bread….. Good luck and good health .. bon appetite 🙂
Suggestions to lose weight with HUNZA DIET BREAD:
There are many ways to do it. This is another benefit. It’s flexible. Here are some typical plans. Each piece of bread is thinly spread with butter for a total of approximately 100 calories.
Plan A: Eat 1 piece every 5 hours of the 16 hours you’re awake. That’s 3 pieces which total 300 calories. This is the fastest way to lose weight I know of. It works faster than any high protein diet. Why? You have more energy and burn more calories. Second, the high fiber bread keeps your digestive system regular. Third, your body stays healthy. A healthy body means a properly functioning metabolic system.
Plan B: Really gorge yourself with the bread. Two pieces every four hours for a total of 8 pieces but only 800 calories. You’ll feel full all day. In fact, I doubt many people could eat this much of the bread.
Plan C: Eat a piece in the morning for breakfast and a piece 3 hours before your dinner and you will eat a great deal less.
Plan D: Eat a piece of HUNZA DIET BREAD, 10 minutes before you eat your regular meal. When we do this we eat only a fraction, such as 1/4 of what we would normally eat. If we wait longer than 10 minutes we don’t want to eat at all.
Plan E: Eat the bread at the end of meals that don’t fill you up enough, such as low calorie meals. This is a perfect way to use the bread. You eat a low calorie meal, enjoy it, then eat a piece or two of bread to fill you up. Perfect! No suffering and no urge to snack.
Plan F: Alternate Plan A, B, C, D. We recommend an alternation of the plans, but some people who just want to get the weight off as soon as possible will use Plan A exclusively.
