Happy & Fructose Free

Spreading Hope for Anyone Affected by Fructose Malabsorption

Fructose Free Newbie – Week 1 – “Base Diet”

on May 17, 2012

“Base Diet” is not a technical term, but for me it represents the strictest limitations that your dietary needs could require.   The WORST CASE SCENARIO… if you will be so dramatic with me.

When it comes to fructose, I am struggling to achieve any sort of Base.  It doesn’t help that there is a lot of conflicting information out there on what is and is not OK for us fructose free folks to eat…  but the link below is the most restrictive food list that I’ve found.

Yes, this particular list is the scariest thing I’ve seen in a very long while… possibly ever.  So, naturally, this is what I’m shooting for:

The Terrifying Food List

If I can maintain this diet for a week I will have considered it a victory, but don’t hold your breath.  Though I question calling a “hash brown” a vegetable, they seem to be on the right track.  Also, if you want sympathy from people about your new dietary challenge, send them that link and they cannot help but see how crazy your new lifestyle will be…

But!!!  Don’t be sad.  There is certainly hope

Fructose free lifestyles, as with many food intolerances, operate on a gradient and each person is different.  The good news is that you might be able to have your Almond Milk & Banana Ice Cream with Crunchy Peanut Butter and eat it too!  Yay!  (Recipe will be coming…)
